This is the third installment of our 5-part Holiday Gift Guide series (other installments found here), and it's time to talk about gift ideas for the little ones in your life - little cowboys and little cowgirls to be more precise. Toys, candy, and clothing are a no-brainer, but we have found some interesting options to tickle your fancy.
Instead of a plain rocking horse, we thought these upcycled Giddyup Rocking Stools by Tim Wigmore (1) would be much more fun for a little cowboy. It would get him well on his way through the three life stages: Crawl, Walk, Rodeo depicted on a fun onesie (2) we found on Etsy. Once he is up to that second, walking stage, giving the little Faux Ostrich Boots from Drysdales (4) as a gift would make a whole lot of sense. To help with preparing for the rodeo it's advisable to have a Bull Rider Vest (3) and to know a cow's anatomy (5). The former can be found at Sheplers, and the latter can be learned by putting together a Wooden Cow Puzzle from Etsy. For those parents who think Drool is another life stage in a little cowboy's development, we have found a fun Cowhide Print Bib (6) on Zazzle.

Little cowgirls are made of sugar, and spice, and everything nice, right? What if yours has been naughty this year? Does she still get a gift? But, of course! Check out selection number 4 below!
No, no! We don't suggest giving her a pouch filled with real coal. This coal is much more fun: Coal Candy (4) from Old Time Candy store. You must admit, it would make her little heart sink though... If on the other hand, your little cowgirl has been nothing but nice, here are some gift ideas for her. A personalized Cowgirl iPhone Case (1) from Zazzle would appeal to any tween. A tiny little cowgirl would look really pretty in a Boot Applique Onesie with Ruffled Cowgirl Bloomers (2) from Etsy, and a Barbie collector would swoon over a Western Chic Barbie (3) from Amazon. What would a cowgirl be without a horse? Get a Jumbo Plush Horse (5) from Country Door for your little one. Last but not least, no cowgirl has ever been able to avoid getting muddy, but that doesn't mean your little cowgirl should not do it in style. Smokey Mountain Wild Horses Rubber Boots (6) are perfect for such occasions.
