Christmas Idea Help!

Hey there, blogging folks. :)
Lately, I've been taking my free time to come up with Christmas ideas.
I've done pretty well, if I do say so myself.
However, I'm having troubles with coming up with ideas for my sister.
You see, I don't want to get any store bought gifts this year.
I feel like that's what the Parents job is, to give them the store bought gifts they ask for a long with suprises.
But I want to be unpredictable and get them something they'd love but never thought to ask for. Because I'm on a budget and since I'm not the parent, I only give them one gift. So I want to make it a good one and a special one. I want them to be suprised and happy.
I was able to come up with unique and special gifts for all of em except one.
My sister Sylvia (age 13) is a horse fanatic. She loves all things that have to do with horses. So I've been trying and searching through pinterest in hopes to find any DIY horse creations or ideas that have to do with horses. But alas, I can't find any. Worst comes to shove, I suppose I'll try to find a crafty gift that isn't horse related but I really would looove it if anyone has a great craft(that isn't too cheesy and cheap but isn't too expensive either) to make. I'm willing to spend a lot of time on it. Cause she's worth it. So time isn't an issue, but too pricey or too easy and unoriginal is an issue.

This is what I want for Christmas. A photographer boyfriend.

If anyone has an idea, please please please let me know. :) I know it's kind of a hard thing to ask of you since I couldn't find any ideas online or come up with one on my own, but if you are brilliant minded and have an idea, I would appreciate feedback. My sister won't see this because she doesn't go online or have a facebook or anything. So, it's okay to comment on it with ideas. :) Thank-you all! If you don't have an idea, don't sweat it. I'll try to find something else. I just figured I'd try covering all my bases before moving on to a new idea.

How has your Christmas gifts been coming a long?
Feel free to share your ideas or gifts your proud of!
I love hearing about it.


  1. You're the best sister!! My sister is also a horse fanatic, I will consult here to see if she has any good ideas for you :) My only suggestion would be pinterest but it seems you have exhausted that attempt. You're way ahead of me with my shopping, I have yet to start!

    1. Thank you so much!! If she ahs any, let me know. :) And its ok, its not even Thanksgiving yet! I'm just an overachiever. XD

  2. I'm not sure if any of these may work:

    I'm sure whatever you make for her though, she'll just love! :)
    I enjoyed *all* the pictures, they cheered me right up. :D And by the way, the picture and then comment about wanting a photographer boyfriend for Christmas made me giggle when I needed it. I wouldn't mind that either. ;)

  3. This post made me smile :) The photographer boyfriend? Ha I'll take one too! ;) xoxo!

  4. This post totally made me smile :) And the photographer boyfriend? ha! I'll take one too! lol!
    Love you sister!

  5. My 13 year old sister is superly into horses too ;) I don't know if your sister has an American Girl Doll sized horse but a few months ago I helped my sister make a fitted quilted horse blanket that fastens with velcro in the front for hers. If you would be interested in this idea you can find my contact info at my blog and I could maybe email you some simple directions. No pressure though :) I hope you figure out something special :)

    p.s. hahaha bout the photographer boyfriend ;)


  6. I can't provide you with any ideas. Just pray that You get your photographer boyfriend for Christmas! Haha..
    The pictures are a delight. The snowman cracked me up!!!!
    And I always love handmade gifts better that store-brought too. Makes it all the more special! All the best..

    +To Me It Matters+

  7. I haven't got any good ideas....sorry. :/
    I want one of those for Christmas too! If you happen to find one see if you can snag another for me. ;)
    good luck with finding an idea! <3

  8. Oh my gosh....a photographer boyfriend. IT'S WHAT WE ALL NEED. <3

  9. I want a photographer boyfriend too! Or just a boyfriend :P

    Looks like you have some awesome ideas here! The first thing I thought of was this:
    I made three of those for my niece's birthday... it could look pretty cool as a horse silhouette with her favorite color(s) :)

  10. Woah! I saw the third picture and my eyes 'bout popped out of my head!!! Then again on the 5th one!!
    Actually, I hope Prince Charming wants a photographer girlfriend, because that certainly what he'll get! But it's definitly a very unique wish. =D
