Meet The Present Pony
I love to give gifts! Once I find what I believe to be the perfect gift, I can’t wait to give it. I find it next to impossible to hold off until the “occasion of the giving”.
“Here! I know your birthday isn’t for three weeks, but I found this yesterday and have to give it to you NOW! Hope you like it!” That’s me.
Giving a gift that is appreciated, that says “I really care about you.”, ” I am so thankful for what you did.” or “I am sorry for your loss.” is important to me.
My first “Great Gift” memory goes back to Valentine’s Day in elementary school. I woke up to find a big beautiful box on the kitchen table. It was wrapped in red and pink and white paper, tied with a big red polka-dot ribbon. Inside, the Fischer Price Airport. The toy I thought of night and day. (I probably talked about it night and day too! Gee Mom, how did you know?)
As a kid, birthdays and random fun holidays usually involved a present on the kitchen table at breakfast. Along with being raised on the joys of gift giving, I was also immersed in a life with horses and ponies. Finding Great Gifts for my equestrian friends, trainers, and barn owners was frustrating. Small tokens of appreciation were REALLY frustrating.
I figured there had to be a way to say “thank you”, “I love you”, “happy birthday” that would bring joy to both parties. So I started Present Pony. Give a Great Gift!
