A Western Gift Guide for Women

Some people are easy to shop for, and some…not so much. Never fear, we have compiled a gift guide to help you figure out what to buy your loved ones, beginning with the special ladies in your life. From sisters to moms to significant others, we’ve got something for everyone at Sheplers.

Significant other:

Whether its your wife, girlfriend, or fiancé, you have to give a gift with some thought put into it. If she likes to cook, you might consider some beautiful Silverado stemware. If she is more the jewelry type, you might be suited buying some gorgeous turquoise jewelry. It’s best to do your research and buy something that relates to something they love.

Mother:

Your mom deserves something that shows thought and appreciation. Western décor like placemats are a hit, because most moms love to set a gorgeous table. Also, Pendleton plates are colorful and they liven up any dinner table. Of course, you might want to go an alternative route all together and consider a gift like a beautiful western handbag.

Sister:

While some siblings don’t give gifts, some do. If you and your sister(s) exchange gifts, you’ll appreciate our suggestions. A glamorous daily planner is a great gift for a girl on the go, but a Western photo frame is also a thoughtful gift you can give.

Western Gifts to Give Children This Holiday Season

What do you get the child who seems to have everything? While some adults opt to buy technology for children as gifts, we take a more traditional approach to gift giving at Sheplers and we love our kids to have gifts that enable them to play together and also utilize creativity. With that in mind, we have a few suggestions for the holidays and for some gifts you might consider getting this Cyber Monday.

For girls: 

Music Treasure Box

Some girls might like a ballerina jewelry box, but a country girl wants one with horses. This box has four drawers to store items and it plays a song when opened, while a horse spins in circles.

Toy Veterinarian Set

For the aspiring veterinarian, the Breyer set is a great toy to keep her entertained. This plush horse comes with doctor tools like a stethoscope, ear light, and grooming brush are a part of this care set.

For boys:

Bull Rider and Rodeo Set

Remember when racecars and train sets were fun, and they enabled you to create story lines and use your imagination? That’s what this rodeo playset can bring to your little one.

Cap Gun Set

Nothing like a good old game of cops and robbers for your kids to play and learn about the Wild West. This set of guns also comes with a double belted holster.

For more great gifts, be sure to check Sheplers website, we’ve got many great items for children this holiday season.

Picking Out a Quality Pair of Cowboy Boots

Cowboy boots are an investment piece for many, so it is important to know when a pair is worth the splurge, or when they just aren’t the right boot for the price. While it’s true sometimes even the best brands of boots go on sale, that is not always the case, and many times the most revered brands of boots rarely ever go on sale. Regardless, there are some things to be on the lookout for when you are boot shopping to help you determine if a pair is a wise purchase or not.

Smell them. A good pair of boots will be made of full-grain leather, not the lower grade leather or synthetic. High quality leather helps your foot breathe, and they are built to last with strong, durable leather. There is no mistaking the smell of quality leather, so go ahead and breathe them in as a test.

Check out the stitching. High-end boots have a level of craftsmanship that, quite frankly, costs money. With hand-stitched design that is impeccable and perfect, you are looking for a high-quality boot that you aren’t going to find in a bargain bin.

Are the soles heavy? The soles should be supportive and made of heavy materials that hug your feed and offer comfort. Outer soles durable, inner soles, padded for long term wear.

While these are only a couple of the criteria you should check when buying boots, these tips are some of the most important when it comes to deciding if a pair of boots is a wise buy, or a waste of time.

Browse our selection of quality cowboy boots and find the pair that is right for you.

Sheplers Loves the Holidays!

Here at Sheplers, we believe that western wear is more than just clothing—it is part of an overall lifestyle. We love family, working hard, and living an honest life, and we know our customers do too.

The holidays are a time that we all feel grateful and reflect on the past year, while also putting some thoughts into how we might make changes in the year to come. But before the seriousness of New Year’s Resolutions, we are all about family fun and cozying up with some classic holiday films. So before you start worrying about gifts to buy and resolutions to make, Here are our top choices for winter ones to watch:

Finding Christmas. This Hallmark movie stars country singer JT Hodges, who even serenades his love at one point of the film.

Home Alone. A real classic, this story is one that still entertains movie fans of all ages.

A Country Christmas. Of course, we love a holiday movie on a farm!

Christmas Vacation. Who doesn’t love the antics of the Griswold family?

Frozen. Whether you’ve seen it or not, Frozen is an ice-filled tale of snowmen and fantasy. Perfect for the holidays.

Elf. Elf is silly, and it is fun for all ages. Kids love the costumes and adults love the writing.

The Santa Clause. While many of us first saw Tim Allen on Home Improvement, he made quite an entertaining Santa in this family film.

These are just a few of the films we enjoy. This year, we are also excited to catch A Country Christmas Story, starring the one and only Dolly Parton.

Western Wardrobe Essentials to Keep You Warm this Winter

Fall is in full effect, and for us, that means shopping for some of our favorite winter wardrobe pieces to stay warm and cozy. If you haven’t done your fall/winter shopping yet, we suggest you start preparing to do it soon.

Jeans

The classic staple year round, jeans are a practical item in the fall. Wear them in a variety of cuts and washes. Stiff denim can go for days without laundering, such as Stetson, but jeans with any LYCRA or stretch will require more washes to keep them fitted.

Boots

How we love our cowboy boots! Thankfully, the cooler temps make them a practical and stylish option. With various colors, patterns, toe shapes and shaft lengths, you’ll have to know what you are looking for when it comes to boots.

Flannel

What says fall more than a cozy flannel shirt? Men, women, and children—we have the plaid shirts you are looking for to outfit the whole family.

Pair these three items together, and you’ve got a versatile, practical, and no-nonsense look to wear this fall and winter. Happy shopping this season and stay warm.
