8 Weeks ’till Christmas: Great Gift Ideas

While it may officially be six weeks or less until Christmas, I’m still running a bit behind on my great gift ideas series. Before we begin with this week’s suggestion, I’m happy to announce the winner of last week’s beautiful Mara pottery giveaway. It was my 10 week suggestion, and I happily offered to share one of my newly purchased Mara pottery pieces with the winner of the week’s question: “Who do you have the most difficulty buying a Christmas gift for.”

Thanks to everyone who participated with a comment. The lucky winner, drawn randomly, is Winona, who finds her husband hardest to buy for.

“For my hubby, the man for which is hard to buy!  He loves the great outdoors and would love the piece, I’m sure.  The pieces are gorgeous!“

Thanks Winona, you are now the owner of one of these gorgeous pieces. Contact us at editorial@westernhorsereview.com to claim your prize.

Onward to this week’s great gift idea.

Recently, at the Western Lifestyle Marketplace, during the Canadian Supreme, Wee and I spent some time at the Double N Ranch booth trying on the great selection of ranch scarves they had on offer. A certain pesky Managing Editor I happen to know cajoled and teased me into purchasing a wild rag, and a buckaroo hat for Wee. I have to admit, the transformation was adorable, and suited the kid quite well.

I don’t own one myself, but with the gorgeous patterns I’ve seen lately, that may change soon.

Like this vibrant wine-colored paisley pattern.

Or, this brilliant blue.

Can there really be such a thing as too much paisley? I think not.

Definitely not.

I love the shots of these young models – the photography is exquisite – showcasing the elegance and rugged beauty of a ranch scarf, particularly when paired with a well worn hat on a punchy ranch kid. See more of these at my original post showcasing these scarves here.

While they are certainly some of the most charming scarves I’ve seen, there are several distributors closer to home who carry an excellent selection as well.

One such, is the aforementioned Double N Ranch, check out their newest patterns and styles of wild rags at this link. 

In Saskatchewan, Young Gunz Distributing carries a large assortment of wild rags.

Such as this elegant beauty.

Or this. You can see the entire selection of Young Gunz wild rags at their Facebook page.

Just one more. Polka dot delight.

Here’s the part you won’t want to miss. Western Horse Review is partnering with Young Gunz Distributing to bring you an utterly wonderful offer, if you happen to be attending the Canadian Western Agribition, Nov. 21-26, in Regina, Saskatchewan. Pop by the Young Gunz booth and with your purchase of a Western Horse Review subscription, receive $10 off any Outlaw Wild Rag in their booth.

Hope to see you there!

    A certain pesky, albeit stylish, managing editor ;). Love the post and love a beautiful wild rag!
