The first in my series of gift guides: stocking stuffers, that is little gifts that are under $25 perfect for your equestrian friends and family or even a sneaky gift for yourself. Prices are in a combination of US and Australian dollars and everything is linked under the image. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
1. Socks, socks, socks
I know socks were the last thing you wanted for Christmas as a kid but seriously you can never have enough riding socks right?! These are some of my favourites and would be great to give or receive.
Dreamers & Schemers
Dreamers & Schemers socks are amazing with totally unique patterns, pony macaroni anyone? I guarantee you will find a design you love, bonus: they do a collaboration with C4 belts which while is over the stocking stuffer price range are just too cute not to mention!
Looking for a more classical design? Look no further than Sox Trot, as well as an adorable name they have gorgeous sock designs!
2. Helmet Monogram
With tones of colour, size and style options you can add a little bit of personality to your trusty helmet and make sure you always know which ones yours in a sea of black helmets. These are amazing, I have a microfibre helmet In fact the top image is mine and they sick and last amazingly. See a full review here.
3. Tack Charm
My Barn Child
These are not only totally darling, come in heaps of different designs they are versatile too. Don’t think you have to own your own horse/tack to have one, I know people that wear them on their breeches belt loops, on a necklace chain or on zipper pulls.
4. Phone Case
Spiced equestrian has so many gift options, including tones of phone case designs. They sell versions for iPhone 5 up and Samsung ans Sony options.
5. Travel Mug
Perfect for those chilly early mornings going to the barn! Is it just me and my equestrian friends or is horse poo humour a thing? If horse poo isn’t your thing they have other horse designs in travel and regular mugs!
6. Grooming brush
Christmas can be a nice time to spoil your loved ones, when I shop for myself I tend to be practical for instance my current body brush is synthetic and plastic. Now there’s nothing wrong with that its a good brush but it’s always nice to have some luxury. This Roma brush is a nice step up from the ordinary with a wooden handle and goat hair bristles, they also do a face brush.
7. Helmet Cover
I think helmet covers are great not only do they add some colour and style to your helmet, they protect your helmet from sun and dust while schooling so when you take it off your helmet is show ready. I think some helmet covers scream 5 year old girl with pink or glitter but ovation has some more subtle classier designs. I would totally rock the bow design!
8. Bit Bracelet
With 10 different colours these padded leather bracelets with a bit design are the perfect addition to your ROOTD or your everyday look! I know so many horsey people who would love to wake up to one of these on their stockings.
9. Whip Clip
So basically this clips onto your boot or chap top and you can clip your crop onto it, one word: genius! Patrick being the lazy boy that he is requires a crop while riding. You don’t have to use the crop you just have to have one with you so I would love this. It would allow you to have one with you in case you need it but leave your hands free and for you to concentrate on other things.
I firmly believe one can never have to many caps. They are not only sun smart but I love sticking them on after riding to hide my helmet hair.
So there it is my stocking stuffer gift guide! What do you think, what do you want in your stocking this year?
