1. Equestrian Home Decor: You don't have to be a professional equestrian to love horse-themed decor...You just have to love horses! Not only is equestrian decor chic and always trendy, it's also a classic that works in just about every home. An equestrian-themed Matted Art Print will fit nicely in a gift basket, add visual impact, and can be a very cost-effective gift!

2. Horse-Themed Entertaining: A tea towel, set of paper coasters, horse charcuterie boards or even a tabletop set of equestrian napkins, placemats and matching plates can be excellent for a themed gift basket. Pair them with a bottle of wine and gourmet snacks and you are sure to impress your fellow horse lover.

3. The Gift of Hydration: Equestrian themed glass tumblers are cool, unique, and super trendy right now! They're also more environmentally friendly because they're made of sustainable materials and won't clog up landfills for 100 years!

4. Organizational Tools: Weekly planners and notepads are a fun gift basket filler because they don't take up much space, nest easily among various items, and they're useful to have! Sometimes the best gifts are things to make life easier, so equestrian-themed office and school supplies will always be a sure winner.

5. Coloring Books: When horse people aren't at the barn...They're wishing they were at the barn! Equestrian and horse-themed coloring and activity books are fun for all ages, and a great way to pass the time at home. You can't be at the barn 24/7, but you can spend your free time daydreaming about horses will coloring pictures of horses!

Unique and creative ideas for equestrian gift baskets

To truly impress the recipient of your equestrian gift basket, consider adding some unique and creative items that go beyond the traditional choices. Here are a few ideas to spark your imagination:

1. Use a creative container: Feed buckets are ALWAYS useful gift, and work great as a gift basket. We also love using cowboy hats, they just make the presentation more fun and every horse lover needs a good cowboy hat! If you're looking for a luxury item, a silver champagne or ice bucket is very chic and resembles a silver championship award from a horse show!

2. Give it a theme: Think about who you're gifting. Are you gifting a dressage rider? Include a Mini Dressage Cutting Board! Looking for a hunter/jumper gift? Our Jump Saddles Gift Bundle has everything you need. Do they just love horses? select your favorite patterns from our Customizable Tabletop Bundle and choose a set of napkins, placemats and plates...They are always a winner.

3. Personalize it: Horse lovers love their horses! A monogrammed item with their horse's name (or their name!) will be sure to bring a smile. Personalized items are often cherished and kept for years...Don't you want to give someone a gift they'll keep forever?
4. Make it count: Sometimes people who are so passionate about something are hard to buy for. They know what they want...and it may be something you have no idea about! Gift certificates are fun. Though some say they're low effort, including a gift certificate in a gift basket is hardly that! Include a gift certificate to their local tack and/or feed store, or get them a riding lesson from their trainer or barn!
5. Handwritten note: Include a heartfelt handwritten note expressing your appreciation for the recipient and their love for horses. This personal touch will show them just how much thought you put into their gift. Shop our collection of equestrian and horse-themed stationery and greeting cards for all occasions!
