Inspirational Gifts for Her

Does the prospect of putting together your Christmas shopping list, fill you with dread? It's not unusual to feel the pressure to find the perfect gift, especially when shopping for an equestrian! Whether your equestrian is new to horse riding or has years of experience, you can use our ultimate guide to find the best Christmas present even if you know nothing about horses yourself!

As with most financial matters in life, your budget is key. Always set a budget. Once you set a Christmas budget, do your best to stick to it otherwise you’ll end up fretting about it!

Once you start to look at some options, make sure you aren't paying too much or too little. The gift doesn't have to be expensive. Remember it's the thought that counts.

Then think about what sort of gift you want to buy for your equestrian. Is it:

  • Something they want
  • Something they need
  • Something they wear?

You’re almost there! Then you just need to know what type of gift you’re trying to buy, ie the “Main Present”, “Just a little something”, a stocking filler, a Secret Santa etc. And then you’ll finally be ready to start scouring the internet!

EQUUS Gift Card

If all else fails…

Try asking friends or family members. They may approach your gift dilemma from another point of view and help you to think of a gift idea that you might not have thought of yourself. You could always ask the recipient themselves what they’d like. This way at least you know they’ll genuinely appreciate/be able to use what they receive!

And if you get really stuck, just give EQUUS a ring and we’ll help you find the perfect horsey gift. Our number is 01438 869442.
