The Kind of Gift Certificate to Put Under the Tree

Our new Gift Certificate on heavy card stock is the kind you can wrap up and put under the tree. And if you buy one of $150 or more, we’ll nail it to a big swatch of Saddleback boot leather. When’s the last time you saw a Gift Certificate worth framing? Order a certificate now, and you’ll have it in time to hang on or put under the tree. Or, we can email it for you to print out last minute too. Did you know that they say 59% of people prefer a gift certificate?

$5,000 of Leather, Spirit of Christmas Giveaway

$5,000 of leather given away? Is that the clip-clop of cow hooves or paws I hear on the roof? It must be time for our Spirit of Christmas Giveaway.

Suitcase Full of Toothbrushes

We have a real short film that pretty much sums up Saddleback and what we’re about, perfectly. And, if you want to see what your suitcase will look like 100+ flights and road trips later, check it out. It may be the best film we’ve released yet (you’ll see our best one ever, in a couple of weeks).

A Saddleback Night Before Christmas

One of our highly creative guys, Matt, came up with a Saddleback version of “A Night Before Christmas” as part of our Spirit of Christmas contest. I thought I’d pass it along for a bit of Christmas fun. I would like a sleigh made out of Land Rover parts though. You can read it here.
