Picking the right gift for anyone can be a daunting task. We’ve all been there, a day before the faithful day and without any ideas. At that time, we tend to go for the safest possible option, making the gift feel like a burden. Not just to us but also to the person receiving it. What further complicates things is if you’re buying a gift for someone you’re dating. And if that someone happens to be a cowboy, well, then you might feel you’re in real trouble. Don’t worry, we here at Cowboy Dating Expert have prepared a number of options for you.
So, let’s start strong and begin the list with something you’ve probably already thought of: a model car. If you’re feeling a bit cheeky, you might make it a piece of farming equipment. This is a thoughtful gift that your cowboy date can put in a visible place to remind him of you. And it also opens a lot of possibilities for future gifts. For example, you might want to get a set of different model cars or farming equipment. And yes, a toy horse may not be a good idea but we leave that decision up to you. These model cars are not expensive so that’s also a plus.
Moving on, a cool gift is also a custom wanted poster. We assume you can get ahold of some of his pictures and add them to already existing frames you can easily find on the internet. Now, this can be done completely free at home but we do recommend you go to a professional store. That way, you can pick a sturdier paper and a larger format. Additionally, people who work at these printing stores are very good at their jobs. So they might help you make the poster feel genuine and like something our lucky cowboy may hang in his living room. Or bedroom, we don’t know the man so we don’t want to make any assumptions.
Our next gift is a practical one. Working with heavy equipment and livestock takes a toll on your hands. So, you might consider buying a gift for your cowboy date consisting of hand cream. There are a number of brands that specialize in exactly these types of hand creams. O’Keefe’s Working Hands hand cream is a good choice as construction workers also prefer them. This is one of the more personal gifts as it shows you care about their health and wellbeing. Who knows, maybe he even wanted to buy the hand cream himself but was just too embarrassed.
There’s nothing wrong with being classic and this is our next set of gifts for cowboys. We’re talking about whiskey glasses, belt buckles, flasks, warm and special socks, and other items you probably already thought of. We’ll add to this list foot warmers as it gets really cold on the ranch, especially in the mornings and late at night when you’re already tired. What makes this choice better is that you can easily combine it with any of the other free gifts we’ve already mentioned.
Next up we have any items made out of leather. You can get great deals on custom leather wallets or you can just go with the standard ones. The same goes for jackets, boots, and gloves. Although you would have to know the right size to get the right gift. So, this might not be a good idea for a first date.
Finally, there are metal tin signs you can get for real cheap on Amazon. They feature high-quality prints of cool images and even cooler texts. And there are a lot of them. We love their cowboy code sign listing the famous cowboy code, something that makes a perfect gift for your perfect man. It goes like this: If it’s not yours, don’t take it. If it’s not true, don’t say it. If it’s not right, don’t do it.
