66+ Best Gifts for Cowgirls: 2024 Gift Guide

If you love this content, please share it!

I’m a cowgirl at heart. When I was about 7 years old I asked for cowboy boots like my dad’s, and for years I had a horse blanket on my bed and a poster of horse breeds on my wall. My parents learned early that gifts for cowgirls and horse lovers would always be a win for me!

Western Clothing Gifts for Cowgirls

My oldest daughter spent last summer as a ranch hand. She discovered several key wardrobe staples that any cowgirl would love to have.

Shirts for Cowgirls

When it comes to western clothing, a classic plaid shirt is handy for any cowgirl. Look for one with a flattering cut and bright colors that will suit her personality (plus the busy pattern hides dirt from ranch chores!). A plaid shirt can also be easily layered with other pieces to create versatile outfits for different occasions.

2. Amazon Essentials Women’s Classic-Fit Long-Sleeve Lightweight Plaid Flannel Shirt (over a dozen patterns/ colors)

3. Women’s Embroidered Western Long Sleeve

4. Rodeo Clothing Women’s Western Casual Button Down Shirt

A horse shirt is a fun way for a cowgirl to showcase her love of horses when she’s not on the ranch. Here are a few fun designs we loved!

5. Horseback Riding Girl Funny Horse Girl T-Shirt

6. AW Fashions This Is Actually My First Rodeo Infant body suit

7. Gifts for Women Teen Girls Equestrian Horses Sayings Funny Hoodies

Pants for Cowgirls

Another essential item in a cowgirl’s wardrobe a pair of well-fitting jeans. Pick a brand and style that is both comfortable and durable— cowgirls do hard work and get dirty! 

Bootcut jeans over a black boot

Bootcut jeans allow the denim leg to cover the top of the boots (which can help dirt and straw from getting inside the boots). Skinny or straight jeans will tuck into the boot top (to better show off the cute boots). For her job last summer, my daughter needed 4 pairs to wash and wear throughout the week.

Besides jeans, anyone who regularly goes horseback riding would appreciate high quality riding pants. These are specially designed to allow close contact with the horse during riding, and they come in lots of pretty colors.

Barn Dance Skirts

While she worked on the ranch, my oldest daughter discovered the fun of barn dances and line dancing! If your cowgirl loves to dance, a cute skirt can be the perfect gift for her. I still remember the cute denim skirt I wore with my first pair of cowgirl boots… core memory activated!

Jackets for Cowgirls

For those chilly mornings or evenings on the ranch, a stylish jacket is a must-have for any cowgirl. Look for one that combines fashion and function, with features like warmth, water resistance, and plenty of pockets for storage. 

12. Legendary Whitetails Women’s Saddle Country Shirt Jacket

Consider the length as well— since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I’ve started buying more knee-length or full-length coats because the waist-length jackets just weren’t keeping me warm enough! If your cowgirl spends a lot of time out in the barn or the great outdoors, she’ll probably want a long jacket.

13. HORZE Womens Charlotte Long Riding Jacket

For rodeos or line dancing, a denim jacket or fringed jacket/ vest is an excellent way to dress up!

16. Paixpays New Tassels Fringe Sleeveless Vest Cardigan Waistcoat Jacket

17. FARYSAYS Womens Cropped Fringe Faux Suede

Cowgirl Boots

Boots are one of the best gifts for any cowgirl. Cowboy boots come in plenty of fun colors and designs, sized for little girls all the way up to adult women! It’s super helpful for a cowgirl to have at least two pairs of boots— one pair for riding and work, and another fancier pair for dress-up or dancing.

Two kinds of nicer boots, one pair brown with heart buckles and the other black.

20. ARIAT Women’s Round Up Southwest Stretchfit Western Boot

21. Lumeheel Rhinestone Cowboy Boots for Women – Sparkly Cowgirl Boots

We found that when we’re buying cowboy boots for ourselves and our kids, it’s best to go in person to try on boots. Cowboy boots are a fitted item, and each style fits a little differently. Don’t forget to bring along a pair of socks that you plan to wear with the boots to get the best fit!

Trendy Western Accessories for Cowgirls

Besides the essentials, there are also plenty of accessories that can add a touch of Western charm to any cowgirl’s outfit. From stylish belts with ornate buckles to statement jewelry featuring horseshoes or turquoise accents, we’ve got a list of great ideas for gift giving.

Belts and Belt Buckles

A bold belt can instantly elevate a pair of jeans or cinch in a flowy dress, adding a touch of cowgirl flair. Look for one with a beautifully crafted buckle that showcases Western motifs like cowboy boots, horses, or intricate designs. Having several belt buckles to choose from can be fun too.

Note: if you’re purchasing a belt and buckle, make sure the belt is the kind that allows you to change out the buckle, since not all belts are designed that way.

22. Utaly Western Cowboy Cowgirl Leather Belts

23. Fumete Western Metal Concho Chain Belt for Women Western Cowgirl 

24. Vintage Oval Flower Rose Boots Horse Rodeo Pink Belt Buckle

25. Rectange Cowgirl Up Boots Western Belt Buckle

Cowboy hats

A nice cowgirl hat not only protects her from the sun but also adds a touch of sass to any outfit, whether she’s out riding horses or attending a country music concert. I love wearing my black cowboy hat in our rainy Pacific Northwest winters, because the wide brim keeps the rain completely off my face. 

You can match the cowboy hat to the boots (brown or black are the more common colors). Or get a simple hat and then grab a couple of pretty hat bands to allow your cowgirl to switch things up whenever she feels like it.

Bandanas

Bandanas can be worn in multiple ways – tied around the neck, used as a headband, or even wrapped around the handle of a handbag for a pop of color. Choose a bandana that features a classic western print like paisley or a cowgirl-inspired pattern.

Purses and Wallets

I discovered high quality Montana West handbags in a rural gift shop a couple years ago, and I love them! The leather wallets, purses and tote bags come in a variety of sizes and designs, and the detailed tooling and helpful features (like concealed carry options) have made them my favorites.

Western Decor for Cowgirls

Riders on horseback in Wyoming.

Western decor is not just about creating a stylish and inviting space but also about celebrating the spirit of the cowgirl. Cowgirls remind me that beautiful doesn’t necessarily mean fragile, and that strength and determination go a long way. 

Blankets and rugs

Adding a cowhide rug to her living room or bedroom can bring an authentic touch to her space. Cowhide rugs are not only visually striking but also incredibly durable, making them perfect for withstanding the wear and tear of a cowgirl’s busy lifestyle. The cow print adds warmth and texture to any room while creating a cozy atmosphere that will make her feel right at home.

Horse prints and framed photos of your cowgirl on a ride or with her horse are the obvious images to hang on a wall. You could also gift her a Western themed photo frame to add to her dresser.

I laughed out loud at some of these vintage-inspired signs featuring classic Western motifs! Include a couple of tin signs or wooden word art blocks to give her cause to smile when she’s not with her horse.

What to buy a cowgirl for Christmas – unique gift ideas

If you’re still not sure what to get your cowgirl, one option to consider is a custom-engraved piece of jewelry. Several of the cowgirl jewelry items and belt buckles allow you to choose which initial to include.

Authentic turquoise art is another beautiful option. Each piece is as unique as the individual semi-precious stones used in it. My husband has gifted me with several beautiful turquoise necklaces and earring sets, and I always get so many compliments on them. 

A personalized photo album is easy to create on Shutterfly, and will delight your favorite cowgirl. Just choose a few favorite photos and add some captions, and you’ll have a one-of-a-kind gift. 

Our Best Gifts for Cowgirls

One of the best gifts we ever gave our daughters was spending several days at a mother-daughter horse camp together. We connected over a shared love of horses, and made precious memories together.

Check your local area to see if there are trail rides or equestrian day camps or lessons near you. It’s guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience for your favorite cowgirl!
