7 Western Gift Ideas for Father's Day
Father's Day is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate a ranching, roping or all-around Western dad than by giving him something he can use and enjoy every day? After surveying some dads here at the NRS headquarters, we've curated a list of 7 Western gift ideas that any cowboy dad will love.
#1. A Stylish Straw Cowboy Hat
A cowboy can never have too many straws — which makes a straw cowboy hat one of the best Western gift ideas for any dad! We carry a wide variety of straw cowboy hats from well-loved and trusted brands like the American Hat Company, Rodeo King and Resistol.
The favorite straw hat among dads is, without a doubt, the Rodeo King JUTE. This breezy, open crown cowboy hat is ideal during hot summer months, and it's reasonably priced! Whether he's working cattle on the ranch or entered in summer ropings, this hat will keep your dad's face shaded from the sun — and have him looking like a true cowboy wherever he goes.
#2. A Knife and Sheath
The best cowboy gifts for Dad demonstrate a blend of style and practicality. Knives and accessories easily meet those requirements. A high-quality, dependable knife is a staple item for any ranching dad. Add a classic leather sheath, and he'll never want to take it off his belt!
The NRS Abilene is one of the most popular knives in our Cowtown Ranch Knife series and comes equipped with a Hermann Oak leather pancake sheath. On the other hand, if your dad appreciates the finer details, you can upgrade the set with a basket weave knife sheath. No matter what style you choose, your dad is sure to appreciate such a useful gift!
#3. A Headstall for His Horse
While a headstall isn't exactly a gift for your dad, it's something he'll appreciate nonetheless! We carry single ear, browband, slit ear and slot ear western headstalls for horses that are beautiful and built to last. The NRS Split Ear Oiled Headstall from our Buckaroo Series is made from oiled Hermann Oak leather, so it has the durability needed for daily work on the ranch or in the arena. It's a gift he'll be proud to add to his collection!
NRS is proud to offer the largest rope selection in the country, so you know we had to add it to our list of Western gifts for him! We carry head and heel ropes, calf ropes, ranch ropes and other roping supplies that your dad will appreciate whether he's roping his own cattle or preparing for a competition.
But we don't just offer a wide variety of types of rope — we also carry many different rope brands. Some of our most popular are Cactus, Classic, Lone Star and King Saddlery, to name a few. View all of our ropes for roping right here on our website or when you visit us in our Decatur store!
#5. A New Pair of Jeans
One of the most versatile cowboy gifts for dad is a great pair of jeans. Our men’s jeans and pants are perfect for ranching, riding, roping or just living up the Western lifestyle. You can find all the top brands in our wide selection including Cinch, Levi and many more.
A favorite pair of jeans among dads is the Wrangler Retro Rocky Top Relaxed Boot Cut Jean. These jeans are designed for guys who enjoy comfort and style, and they're perfect for just about any occasion. Pick up a pair for your dad today!
#6. Some New Shades
One of the most simple but essential Western gift ideas to consider for your dad is a new pair of sunglasses. We carry several styles from Bex, a high-quality sunglasses brand used and trusted by many rodeo and Western communities.
Of all the Bex sunglasses in our selection, the Jaxyn series is consistently the most popular. The Bex Jaxyn X sunglasses are the ultimate gift for the active dad; they have a sleek, yet comfortable and functional design that will protect his eyes year-round. Don't be surprised if he has them on every time you pay a visit on a sunny day!
#7. A Fresh Polo
He has the jeans and the straw hat — now all he needs is a great polo! Some of our most popular Western shirts for men are the Cinch ARENAFLEX polos. They come in a variety of colors and they're cool and comfortable, making them perfect for the roping pen, golf course or grill at your next backyard Fourth of July picnic. Trust us, your dad will thank you later!
