    Default BO gift idea?

    This will be my first Christmas at my barn--moved there last January. I am having a tough time thinking of a gift for the BO. She is not particularly hands-on, she does more barn maintenance and occasional daily chores since she has a full-time job as well, and I don't know her really well enough to think of what she might like. At my previous two barns, I was pretty close to the owners and had more of a feel for stuff they'd like--gift cards, wine, a portrait, etc.

    I also don't have much of an idea on what's a good price range in this case, either... any suggestions for a good basic BO gift would be appreciated!

    Here are a couple of ideas depending on your budget and what additional clues you might get as to her interests:

    1) Spa gift certificate
    2) Gift basket with tea, coffee, chocolate
    3) gift certificate to a nice restaurant
    4) Gift basket with winter items: hand and shoe warmer packs, silk glove liners, etc.

    If the BO has a full time job and has a barn to take care of, a nice gift might be things that just help make her life easier or give her a chance to relax a bit.

    Thanks Alter... I like the winter gift pack; that would probably be useful...

    If she likes things embroidered with her farm logo, you could always do embroidered polos or a cap or something. It helps if she already has someone she works with who has the logo on file.
