5 Gifts for the Cowboy in Your Life

If you live somewhere with dairy or beef farms, chances are you know a cowboy. Whether they compete at your local rodeo or show livestock at the county fair, they embrace the label as part of their heritage or culture. Curious about what to get them for a birthday or holiday? Here are some ideas.

Belts and Buckles

In some circles, belt buckles are a way to convey identity. A novelty buckle is sure to get a smile. Some competitions also use buckles in place of trophies, allowing winners to proudly display their victories. Finding a belt that compliments their prized buckles, such as a cattle roundup belt for a trophy buckle from a rodeo, is a subtle gift that will make big waves.

Saddle Bags

If they spend a lot of time on horseback for work or recreation, saddlebags are a good idea. They can keep water bottles handy and be a safe place to store phones and other equipment.

Hat Holder

Stetson hats don't just look fancy, they keep the sun out of your eyes, ensuring you're not blinded by the glare. However, they are cumbersome, and storage can be a hassle. Having a designated holder in the truck or bedroom can prevent the hat from being irreparably squished by accident.

New Work Boots

Classic cowboy boots might just raise an eyebrow and get thrown in their closet. It's better to err on the side of practical. Even if work boots aren't fancy, the ones that keep your feet dry and safe tend to cost a pretty penny, and new ones might be a much-appreciated gift.

Boot Scraper

If you live with your cowboy, this might be as much for you as it is for him. If he doesn't have the time or energy to take off his boots before he comes into the house from the barn, boot scrapers can still keep mud and muck outside where it belongs.

Practical or cheeky, the thought put into the gift is what will make it a success.
