    No I don't actually lol. He's only just starting out with horses. This is the first horse he has had.
    Haha money is limited lol. I don't like to spend over $50 on each of them. They get a truck load of presents from their mum each year and I'm on a budget all year round lol

    Clothing - Ariat, Wrangler, Thomas Cook, Bullzeye, RM Williams have some "cowboy cred"

    An RM Williams or Ariat belt would be useful, even when not riding.

    Is he a reader?

    Thank you! That's really helpful. I've found a couple of bullzye shirts that i think I'll buy him. Just have to work out his size.
    He's not a reader. Lol. Thank you!

    Default Christmas presents ideas

    So rather than starting another thread.. You ladies are incredible with ideas. What can I get my father? The man is so hard to buy for. He loves reading but never buys books, he borrows from the library so no point in buying him books or similar. He doesn't get much down time. Rarely has a chance to sit down and relax. He does like a drink but I usually get stuck and buy him a bottle of bourbon or similar.. trying to avoid that this year. Lol.
    He is on a property so yeah not much time. I don't want to buy him clothing. He's not that kind of person. Or a cologne type of person. He's so hard lol
    Any help please?!

    Also don't really have time to buy online. So I'm limited on stores I can buy from.

    Kindle loaded with new books?

    Box set of an old series he used to watch?

    An old restored photo of the family or farm and professionally framed?

    Gift voucher to the local pub so he can have a night out?

    Tickets to anything coming up?
