Valentine’s Gift Guide

Roses are red, violets are blue, I finally got a boy/girl friend, now what do I do?! We’re here to help you with you Valentine’s Day shopping.

As The Old Hunting Habit’s website states, “When great women wear great underwear while out hunting, the sky is the limit for what they can achieve.” 

Help your huntress out with this perfect gift!

Tally Ho pants, £15, The Old Hunting Habit

We can’t get enough of Sunspel’s first cologne, Oak Wood Eau de Parfum, and the great news it’s unisex. Utterly timeless, it is modern and clean yet evocative of English heritage.

The only question is…who is giving it to who? 

Sunspel Oak Wood, £90 100ml


Need some close contact? This is the perfect gift for the action man in your life. Harry Hall’s baselayer has great wicking and compression qualities, which can aid muscle fatigue. And it’s perfect for all seasons and all sports. There’s nothing wrong with a practical present!

Harry Hall, £30.95


Don’t be put off by the name! The BodyRag is a brilliant piece of kit for your sports bag or horsebox. Made from a special super absorbent luxury material which dries you instantly and keeps you warm. It’s lightweight, space-saving and dries quickly too. Available in a variety of sizes and colours, it’s a great present for active folk, whatever the weather. 

Small BodyRag, £22

Gin – pink gin! What else !? We’re delighted to recommend this new local find, Chalgrove Artison Distillery, whose delicious hand crafted OX2 pink gin is packed with fresh notes of earthy coriander with a hint of rhubarb and ginger. 

OX2 Pink Gin (40%ABV), 35cl £25

And we are thrilled that Ben from Chalgrove has concocted this special recipe for you all:


35ml OX2 Pink Gin
25ml vermouth (sweet white or rosé)
20ml Aperol
Cubed Ice
Stir and add a slice of pink grapefruit and a leaf of basil to garnish!

Feeling decadent? Get creative and commission a personalised Armis polo helmet for your adrenaline junkie and join the likes of Adolfo Cambiaso and Nina Clarkin who have chosen Armis for their helmet safety. It’s a no brainer.

Customised Armis helmet from £635

Planning a romantic night in? Look no further than The Summer House Collection’s gorgeous range of linen. Not just for the summer, why not treat yourself and your table. Check out their website as there are loads of lovely things – we are big fans of their acrylic tableware for the horsebox. 

Block printed table mats, £5 each

Block printed napkins, £2 each

Perfect for raising your pulses (or simmering them) the key to many a heart is through food. What’s not to love about Le Creuset’s cast-iron signature set in cerise? Can be bought individually if you don’t want to go the whole hog.

3 piece set, £400 

If you don’t have someone to share the day/night with, then why not indulge your 4 legged partner in crime. Equitex’s Close Contact Saddle Pad from The Saddle Pad Company has been developed to protect the horses back from the pressures and impact of ridden work, regardless of fluctuation in the horses’ shape through age, seasonal changes, rest periods or varying levels of work. 

Close contact saddle pad, £209.99

Could this be the ultimate gift? A trip to Tattersalls February Sale on 30-31st January? How about giving two legs each? Or surprising your loved one with a future star? We take no responsibility for them spending more time at the yard but hope you’ll keep us posted on your results!
