Its hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner. And if you’re like me, you like to have your holiday shopping done ahead of time so that you can really focus on time with family. But sometimes it can be difficult to shop for certain people. I’ve put together this gift guide for ranch families to help us shop for our favorite country folk.
Christmas Gift Guide for Ranch Families
Shopping for certain family members can be tricky, sometimes difficult. And as I’ve gotten older, I like to avoid the crowds of the malls. Plus, that usually involves a journey of about 2-3 hours for us rural folks.
Now, I am pretty keen on the whole online shopping thing. This whole list is comprised of easy to find items from online retailers!
I totally get it, there is something fun about heading out to the shops and hand selecting gifts for our loved ones. So, maybe if that’s your plan, this list will spark some ideas for when you head out to shop.
I definitely plan to split my Christmas shopping with some local shops and the rest online.
Here’s a few of my favorite Christmas gift ideas for ranch families. It has a little of something for the country men, women, and children in your life.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Ranchers
A lot of the items on this part of the gift guide are practical items related to the tough job that ranchers do daily. I’ve included some of my rancher husband’s favorite tools for his job on the ranch.
Oh, and flashlights, too!
Sharps container. Ok so this isn’t a super glamorous gift idea, but it is super practical. Who wants to touch used needles from vaccinating farm animals? Not me!
Toolbox for a work truck. Super handy for keeping all of the necessary tools available when your rancher is busy working out in a pasture somewhere. This is another favorite tool around here!
Electric fence tester. This one is my husband’s favorites and he says it is definitely worth the price. It even points to the direction where the short in electric fence is located. How cool is that?
Cordless drill. This is one of my rancher husband’s ultimate tools for jobs around the ranch and it gets regular use.
Chainsaw and wood splitter. These are great helps for wood stove users!
Boot warmer and dryer. Ours gets regular usage during the winter months and any rainy days.
Leather shave kit. What rancher, doesn’t appreciate leather and a nice quality shave set?
Muck boots. Ours get almost daily use and we go through a couple pairs of these every year.
Leatherman multi tool. We also go through these pretty often, but they are perfect little tools that easily fit in the pocket of your jeans.
Insulated hats, gloves, coveralls.
Apparel. Also an appropriate gift idea around here. And the Carhartt brand is our favorite durable working solution.
Meat & cheese boxes. Yes, my husband actually requests these and I’m happy to oblige once a year!
