Valentines Gifts For Horse Lovers

23 Jan

If you are feeling anything like me at the moment then Winter with horses is starting to feel like a struggle and you are wishing the Spring sunshine would arrive. We all need something to look forward to and with Valentine’s Day round the corner it’s time to start putting out a few handy hints to your loved one!  Here are a few ideas that might take your fancy…

For something a little different, any equestrian would appreciate one of our brand new gift sets. The Horse Lovers Hamper comes in a modern box filled with equestrian themed goodies including a notebook and pen, love my horse keyring and a horse shaped soap and rose scented lip balm. All beautifully packaged your other half can take the hassle out of Valentines with a gift you will appreciate.  If you are finding your body is a little tired after the endless mucking out then our Pampering Gift Set may appeal.  The brand new wash bag is filled with the very popular Naked Horse Hand and Body Cream and Dead Sea Bath Salts.  Give your body and skin some relief this Valentine’s from the cold weather.

If you would prefer a more traditional Valentine’s gift then of course some jewellery is the obvious option.  What woman doesn’t love a bit of sparkle and if you’re other half knows how much you love your horse then some equestrian themed jewellery is the perfect choice.  For a touch of sparkle our current favourite piece of equestrian jewellery is the Rose Gold Sparkly Hoof stud Earrings. Perfect for nights out and day to day wear! Alternatively if you would prefer a timeless, stunning necklace the Gallop Collection Silver Snaffle Necklace is a beautiful piece which can be worn with a variety of necklines.

If you view Valentine’s Day as more of an excuse to get a practical gift to update your equestrian wardrobe/ accessories then the Classic Grip Leather Horse Riding Gloves are highly recommended for the keen horse rider. Having saved my fingers through freezing early morning rides this Winter, yet not being too bulky for Summer wear, I think these are an essential gloves for anyone who rides whatever the weather! Why not team with some Coolhorsesocks to help keep toes warm too!

So the time has come to plant the seed as to what you would like for your special gift this February 14th!  Start talking about how cold your fingers are out riding, how you need a nourishing body moisturiser, leave a few website pages open on a shared computer and hopefully this year the chocolates and flowers will stay at the garage and us horse lovers will be happily mucking out this Valentines rather than a raged woman with a pitch fork!

 

Surprise your Valentine with a Special Horsey Gift

10 Feb

With just a few days to go it’s not too late to get yourself organised and treat your valentine to a horsey gift that will be appreciated more than the usual flowers and chocolates from the petrol station on the way home from work (not that we are suggesting you have ever done that!).  Here are a few of our extra special ideas….

For someone who loves a little sparkle why not opt for the scatter sparkle hat cover and gloves, or perhaps team one of these with some sparkling jewellery such as the hoof necklace or horse brooch.

For the horse rider who loves all things girly and feminine the pink and grey hat cover and horse riding gloves make a cute set, especially when combined with the pom pom socks.

For those who love a splash of champagne, pop and buy an ice cold bottle from your local supermarket (there are always some great offers on about now!) and team with the horse head ice bucket.

For a more practical gift for the horse owner why not go for the heart mane and tail brush and horse riding gloves, or even the Tottie vegas set and the pink and purple grooming box.

Or if you are feeling ultra lavish and romantic you could spoil your loved one with a trip away, any why not pack some clothes ready in this horsey overnight bag, and don’t forget her toiletries in this wash bag or beauty bag.
