Unique Horse Lovers Gift Basket
by by Joane Lowery
The best gift basket for the horse lover is simple and from the heart.
It will have everything that a passionate horse lover could want or need. Take a simple feed bucket and chock it full of all those equestrian goodies.
First take a standard size grain barrel. Fill it with straw, or if during Easter basket grass. Next, start filling the bucket with all those goodies.
- A bottle of mane and tail shampoo and conditioner are a must. Next throw in a hoof pick and maybe a pair of manual horse clippers. The horse lover is also going to need a comb to tame that mane and tail with. As well as, a package of rubber bands that are designed for use on show Clydesdale's. Throw in a small bottle of hoof black for good measure.
- Now, don't forget about the horse lover! You will need to put in a personalized coffee mug for them. Preferably , one that has a picture of their horse on it. If it is a female horse lover, a show hair net with bow may be just the ticket. If it is for a male, a toy gun or something along those lines.
- It is important to remember that the true horse lover will also decorate their home with some type of equestrian literature or artwork. You can pick up a custom sign and put it in the barrel also.
- When you have it all put together take a decorative roll of self-sticking vet wrap. Though they come in a variety of decorative patterns, preferably choose one that has horseshoes on it. You'll want to give your unique gift a finished look to it by adding a bow. Make the bow from the self-sticking vet wrap of course!
