Every year in our family we get new boots. It doesn’t matter if they are cowboy boots or muck boots, they are a hit. My three year old looks forward to opening that box with his new cowboy boots in it. Valley Vet Supply is my favorite place to get his boots not just because I work here, but because it is so easy to either shop the store or place an order for them. The selection is great and there are many brands to choose from. Tony Lama, Justin, and Ariat are just a couple of the brands we carry. Muck and Norcrosse are some great mud boot brands that we carry. Muck is a huge hit at our house, and in the last few years I have not heard complaining of cold or wet feet.
For the stubborn gift receivers I like to purchase gifts they use everyday. My dad happens to be one of those people. For Christmas, the best gift for him is clothes. Jeans and button down shirts are the only way to go. The catalog and web are full of great options for jeans. Valley Vet Supply carries several great brands such as Ariat, Levi’s, and my favorite, Wrangler. There are also updated styles for the younger guys, too, like the Wrangler Retro line. I was actually told the other day by a customer that we have the best size selection around. Her husband was an off size in length like a 33”, and we were the only company she could find that carries that size. Shirts are the same way. The selection is wonderful for all shapes and sizes.
The other aspect of my gift giving is for our furry friends. I have two Basset hounds, and they love gifts almost as much as my 3 year old. Some gift ideas for them would be the jolly egg which looks like an egg but hard so there medium sized breed can easily push around and chew on it without destroying it. Valley Vet Supply also carries a treat dispenser called a Kong. These can have several uses, not just a treat dispenser, but also as a durable chew toy or retrieving toy.
Here at Valley Vet Supply we also have some gift ideas for your larger pets, too. Horses are a huge part of many of our lives, and they deserve a treat for all their hard work they do for us throughout the year. One gift that I personally love to see those big guys play with is the Jolly Ball. They are used to keep a horse entertained and are a great training tool. Mrs. Pastures Christmas stockings are also a hit. They come in a cute stocking filled with these delicious horse cookies made by Mrs. Pastures. Valley Vet Supply also carries these treats in larger quantities for the multiple horse owner.
I love the smell of fall in the air, and the excitement of the holidays approaching fast. It’s the time of year when giving can be rewarding, and family is most important. Happy Holidays, Rachael
