Only 9 more sleeps until Santa squeezes his rather large butt down the chimney!!! Are you ready?? If you're anything like us you've been way too busy riding horses and enjoying the warmer weather to tackle that Christmas shopping list. If you've left shopping for your horsey friends until the last minute, fear not! We've put together some gift ideas for all the horsey peeps in your life. A few clicks of the mouse button and we'll have your gift buying sorted and you'll be back out playing ponies in no time at all.....
GIFTS FOR THE HORSEY woman
If you have a horsey girlfriend, wife or partner, consider yourself lucky. Horsey women are the easiest to buy for. They will appreciate anything, and we mean ANYTHING you get them that is horse related (except maybe a poop scoop... perhaps steer clear of that one). But if you really want to up the Brownie Point Factor, you can't go wrong combining her love of horses with her love of all things shiney. Yes, we're talking equestrian jewellery. We have stunning pieces for all budgets in our range, so check them out. You can thank us later ;-)
gifts for the horsey mum
Horse mums are the best. On top of their mum duties they often have to take on the role of groom, horse transport driver, financier, caterer, support crew and coach. And they know how to get those stains out of your favourite white breeches. Horse mums are like Wonder Woman, without the hot pants (well, usually without). So why not show mum how much you appreciate her with a timeless and elegant gift horse inspired gift. Our Caldene range has many mum-worthy pieces, including the stunning silk Bradenham scarf and a beautiful selection of belts.
Gifts for your horsey bestie
The pressure is on when it comes to your horsey bestie. She always gets you the best, most imaginative presents, right? So you really want to find her something she'll love. For originality and a gift she will use all year, check out our Arch & Alex tee shirt collection. We have a design and a style to suit everyone and all horse interests. Does she love jumping and have a wicked sense of humour? Give her a laugh with our Size Matters tee. Does she like dressage and have champagne tastes? Look no further than our Dressage and Champagne tee! All our tees are designed and printed in Melbourne on soft cotton tees that suit most body shapes.
Some other bestie-worthy gifts are this cute Show Vibes tote bag from Hunt Club, perfect for puting all your essentials in for a rally or comp day. Or how about a lucky horseshoe necklace, earrings, or the set?! Bestie's present sorted!
gifts for barn buddies
One of the best things about being involved with horses is the number of amazing like-minded people you meet and become friends with. There's your riding club mates, your instructors, friends at your agistment centre, trail riding companions, neighbours... those friendly and witty girls that run your favourite online equestrian shop (subtle hint there ;-)).... The list is endless. Stocking filler type gifts that are thoughtful and useful but aren't going to bankrupt you are what you need for the multitudes in this category. We've stocked up on gifts in the $10-$40 price category so that you can have your Barn Buddies covered.
Our Longwinter Farm lip balms are guaranteed crowd pleasers. We struggle to keep up with the demand for these babies. Not only do they come in the yummiest of flavours (apples and sugar cubes in Pony Breath, spearmint and cotton candy in Unicorn Farts (what else?!?!?), peanut butter and pumpkin in Puppy Kisses and orange marmalade, violet and cotton candy in Pegasus), they are also creamy nourishing lip balms with no nasties in them. So far from being just a gimmick, these lip balms will keep lips moisturised and kissable no matter how many hours you're out in the sun, wind and rain. And at just $10 each you can grab a heap as stocking fillers
Socks are another great stocking filler for horsey people. We all go through long socks like crazy, right, wearing them with our riding boots every day. So a top up of really good long socks is always appreciated. We have an amazing value pack of Caldene pop socks in just in time for Christmas. These socks are fine at the leg for wearing with tight long boots (and to help them stay up) yet padded for comfort in the foot section. At $40 for a pack of 3 they are amazing value.
If you're after a stocking filler for someone that loves dogs (or foxes) have a look at our selection of lightweight viscose scarves for just $25. These scarves are a perfect summer weight scarf and add a cute whimsical element to any outfit.
gifts for your horse
Last but not least, lets not forget something under the tree for your horse this Christmas. The best thing about a present for your horse is that you get to unwrap it and enjoy it too!! Everyday is like Christmas for most of our spoiled ponies, so lets really go a little bit special for Christmas. Our pick is this sumptuous Caldene dressage saddle pad and matching ear bonnet set. With the added sparkle of silver in the trim and logo, and in the subtle flecking on the outside fabric of the saddle pad, this combination will have your horse looking like a noble steed at Christmas and throughout the year.
So hop online and get your Christmas shopping sorted! We get orders packed and out the door within 24 hours and ship via Australia Post, so you've still got plenty of time to get your order before Christmas! Happy Shopping!!!
