I'll let you in on a little secret about Tim. Back in the day, he used to be in 4-H. He had a special horse named Charlie. He told me all about it on our second or third date.
I'll also let you in on a little secret about me. In high school, I almost always listened to the country music radio station in my car - often with the windows down, my fingers tapping the steering wheel. When I was 17, Tim bought a bottle of Strawberry Wine and we had a picnic (all because of that song).
I guess you could say we both have a tiny bit of country in us - even to this day.
Bass Pro Shops is an outdoor retailer that appeals to people who love and work the earth - ranchers, farmers, hunters, hikers, and fishers.
Here are a few fun country-inspired pieces that would make great gifts for your spouse, your kids, or yourself:
He doesn't have to be a bonafide cowboy to appreciate these all-leather RedHead Rancher Waterproof Work Boots (see left - $99.99). Waterproof, weatherproof, and winsome...these boots can carry any guy from the barn to the business office. Tim says they're mighty comfortable and I say they're mighty good-lookin'.
Our little sharpshooter is a serious threat because she's so cute she could cause a heart attack. Here she is wearing the Embellished Straw Cowboy Hat for Girls (see right - $12.95).
How about this Matte Cuff Bracelet (see left - $4.94) to add a little southwestern flair to a western woman's wardrobe? Fashioned with glass beads, it's a pretty piece that is bound to be noticed.
BPS has plenty of other gifts and products to peruse - at great price points. If there's a store near you, you should stop in and check it out for yourself (bring the kids - the displays are fun).
Do you listen to country music? If so, what are a few of your favorite songs - past and present?
