Farmers and their families can be notoriously difficult to buy for. While thermal socks are always greatly received, I thought I’d do my own Christmas gift guide for families like ours and any other people who like farming and the great outdoors.
Babies and Children.
Think the youngest members of the family can’t be included on the farming wishlist? Think again.
Any child who is destined to grow up on a farm needs to be trained from and early age.
Think wellies, wellie socks, farm toys, warm clothing and an exact replica of their Daddy’s tractor. Add to that farm playsets, horse toys and ride-on farm vehicles, you have the wishlist of most children, everywhere.
2 and 3 Any kind of clothing with horses, tractors or farm animals like these offerings from Joules
5 A flask or an insulated cup like this one we reviewed from Olpro is a good idea. Little ones will be able to sip warm juice or milk on the coldest of days or have a refreshing cool drink in summer.
1 It can get cold on the farm. Even in the summer, long days on a tractor can go on forever without food or a cup of tea. A flask is always a winner. You can put soup in it or tea. At Christmas, you could always make a lovely flask of coffee with a dash of whiskey in to warm your farmer’s cockles. This particular flask is from Farm Toys Online.
2 Any clothing adorned with machinery or you farmer’s favourite machinery will go down a treat. Make sure you read my post about tractor etiquette though. You don’t want any awkward silences on Christmas morning.
3 A subscription to their favourite farming newspaper or magazine. Let them check the lamb prices without leaving the farmhouse.
Now I would say diamonds but I can’t see that happening and Hubster has issued a blanket ban on all live presents so a puppy is unlikely so, instead, any of these gifts would be greatly received. Feel free to print off and pass to my husband.
Here’s to a very Merry Christmas for everyone on the farm this year.
*If you do read this Hubster, it’s a Shih Tzu puppy I want or a Chihuahua or a Labrador. I’ll leave the choice up to you. Thanks.
