Scratching your head on what to get the country music fan in your life? Want to get something cool but save enough money for everybody else? We've got you covered.
Now, we all know things like big concert tickets, country cruises and a trip to Stagecoach in California or Americana Fest in Nashville would be an amazing Christmas gift. But we also know we don't always have the time or money to make that happen.
If you're one of the many with a country fan in their life, here are 10 cool and affordable (mostly) Christmas gifts you can buy for them right now. Without even leaving the house! You're welcome.
Limited Edition Garth Brooks "The Dance" Gold Record
For the collector in your life, this limited edition Garth Brooks commemorative gold record features the lyrics to his hit song "The Dance" etched in it. We all know how much that song means to so many folks. If you've got a Garth Brooks fan in the family (come on, we all do), they'll no doubt love both the look and the meaning behind this cool plaque. They only made 500, so don't wait too long! $89
Dolly Parton Custom Coffee Mug
A little too steep? No worries, this Dolly Parton Custom Coffee Mug comes in at under $25. It looks pretty dang classy, and it's real-deal ceramic. Plus, who doesn't love Dolly? $18 plus shipping
Handmade Guitar Belt Buckle
Anybody who wears belt buckles knows the golden rule about belt buckles is... you can never have too many belt buckles. It's like the guy way of buying shoes (unless we're talking about boots; the guy way of buying boots is also buying boots). But this cool buckle looks great on the ladies too, if they so choose to slap one on. $25
Merle Haggard "The Hag" Oklahoma License Plate
The only bummer about this gift is that if you live in Texas, you can't really put it on your car. But many other states don't require a front license plate, which opens that area up for this bad boy. Pay homage to the late, great Merle Haggard with this license plate with his lovingly given nickname, "The Hag." $18
Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Ray Price: Last Of The Breed Gift Set and Donation
This Christmas gift is a twofer. First of all, you're getting a country music fan one of the seminal concert DVDs in all of country music. The "Last Of The Breed" concert spawned a hit record and featured three legends all taking the stage at once. You can get them the CD, the DVD, or both. Plus, each purchase is a donation towards KLRU, the station responsible for the famed Austin City Limits TV show. If you don't recall, that show really helped launch the artist career of Willie Nelson and many, many more amazing musicians. $84-240, either in one-time payment or over 12 months
George Strait Bud Light Neon Sign
What better way to make the house feel more like your honky tonk home than by adding a George Strait Bud Light neon sign to it? Honestly, this Christmas gift just seems like a no-brainer. $106

For the charm-loving country fan in your life, this western boot charm bracelet perfectly captures the love for the classic country footwear. Now, even if she's in an environment where she can't wear boots, she's still "wearing boots." $15 plus shipping
Johnny Cash Leather Backpack
Surefire way to be the coolest kid in school? Carry around this leather Johnny Cash backpack. There are a few options, including the famous "middle finger" image, but if you want to get off on the right foot, maybe go for this more classic approach. It features an older cartoon poster-style image of Cash advertising some of his earliest hits. $45
Country Music Blanket
Sure, country music may make us feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside, but now it can make us all warm and fuzzy on the outside, too. This big queen-size blanket features a boot, a guitar and the American colors. What more do you need? $55
