Horse Holiday Gift Tags

These gift tags are perfect for an equine inspired holiday gift. Imagine a simple craft wrapping paper with a candy cane decoration and voila! Instant elegance!

Hand drawn by Anne of SeaSpritePaperie. Anne says that “The part I really LOVE is that they are not "realistic" looking - I outline the horse with a fine point black pen and fill it with a water wash, then just spread some paint on the horse - nothing perfect- color of horses falls where it falls!” She ships out of Maryland and has a variety of horse and animal designs.

English Holiday Stocking

These English-inspired riding boot stocking are so unique! I haven’t seen these before and I think they are just adorable.

Handmade by KickInTheBreeches on Etsy…awesome shop name by the way! She also includes FREE personalization for each stocking and sells a beautiful “Welcome” stocking that you could hang on your door instead of a wreath. Click here to see her shop.


Horse Inspired Ornament

At first glance this ornament just looks like a regular snowflake ornament. But look closer and you will see that it is made out of farrier nails! What a great idea! The design is also elegant and classy for any equestrian’s home.

Handmade in New Hampshire by Elizabeth Kerr of TheBentNail (also another great shop name!). Each nail is hand bent and then she solders the nails together to create the design.

Elizabeth believes that "every horse needs a goddess and every goddess needs a horse". What a wonderful statement! I agree! Click here to see more.


Rocking Horse Centerpiece

This vintage inspired arrangement would be a beautiful addition to your home. I am particularly fond of the rustic farmhouse decor...yes I am a Fixer Upper fan! The centerpiece is filled with winter pine greenery, cream pip berries, pine cones, grapevine and bronze foliage. Of course I love the vintage looking rocking horse and rusty bells. 

What a great idea for any shelf, fireplace mantle or table. It would make a beautiful centerpiece for a holiday party, invite all your friends from the barn for an equine inspired holiday party.

This centerpiece is handmade by SheilasHomeCreations on Etsy. She also has other arrangements for different seasons, including some gorgeous pumpkins! Click here to see her entire selection.


Rustic Horseshoe Tree

It is amazing what some people can do with horseshoes! This simple, yet beautiful, holiday tree would look beautiful in your home, or perhaps in the barn! You wouldn’t have to worry about it getting ruined, it would last year after year. You could also replace the ornaments during different seasons.
