Valentine’s Day is a day all about spoiling your loved one and is celebrated all around the world. Whether you are going out for meal, or buying them an exquisite gift, it’s all about making a memory that will last a life time. If the latter is the case, we have compiled a list of the perfect gifts your loved one will adore – there’s still time to get that perfect treat!
Hyde & Hare
Hyde & Hare are a luxury lifestyle brand and offering the finest cowhide bags and accessories. They pride themselves in their impeccably stylish, beautifully designed and affordably priced products. I myself have a the Foxley handbag that I use every day and always receive compliments for. I thought I would share the pieces I think would make a perfect Valentines present for the stylish country lady in your life! Each one is unique so you can guarantee that you won’t find another one like it anywhere!
The Winslow Purse
The Winslow is an everyday essential. This perfectly proportioned purse opens via a sleek custom zip puller and is fashioned in smooth leather. Better still there is no need to wrap, as when ordered online it arrives in Hyde & Hare’s signature presentation box and custom dust bag.
The Arundell Cowhide Clutch
No outfit is complete without the perfect accessory, and so this is what makes the Arundell Cowhide clutch so popular. It effortlessly adds sophistication to an outfit or is perfect for every day. We are certain it would be sure to turn heads and be the envy of everyone in the room!
Pegasus Jewellery are a brand that offer unique and stylish designs with hints towards their equestrian heritage. Their aim is always to provide an affordable brand for horse owners or lovers of the countryside to wear without breaking the bank! (As horses can do that to us enough!). I wear my Vitality bracelets from them every day to help improve my sleep and focus. As well as a snaffle necklace that I absolutely adore that hardly ever gets taken off! We’ve gone through their products and picked the two we feel would make the perfect present this Valentines Day.
Pearl sparkle horseshoe bangle
This bracelet is such a simple yet eye-catching piece with a nod to a love of equestrianism with the horseshoe. The freshwater pearl that it surrounds sit elegantly on the wrist on a sterling silver bangle. I think this piece, as it sits just as perfectly at a dinner table as it would out at the races.
Rose gold luck and love horseshoe pendant
Rose gold is proving to be popular as ever this year. Pegasus Jewellery have a wonderful range of rose gold jewellery but for Valentines Day this is one of my favourites. This necklace provides both luck and love to the wearer. A touching sentiment if ever there was one!
Leger & Oats
Cotswold-based luxury clothing brand Leger & Oaks specialise in creating wraps, capes and jackets. Perfect for wearing on a chilly day at the races, or to stand out from the crowd at a country show. They have even been worn at weddings when the evening gets cold, a rustic wedding is the perfect setting for their capes to be worn!
The Chelsea cape in County Tan Check
This wrap in the country tan check is super elegant with a simple turnover collar. Finished with gilt buttons and lined with taupe and gold paisley lining, it’s a perfect nod to the country and equestrian way of life. Will the country loving lady in your life be opening one of these on the 14th ready to wear for a meal out or at Cheltenham races?
Dartmoor chocolate wool feather trimmed hat
No outfit at the races, a point to point or country show is complete without a fedora. Made from 100% wool Leger & Oak’s hats are customised with natural feathers to keep each hat individual. Every lady deserves to have the perfect hat for any occasion. So this Valentines why not treat your lady, to a chocolate coloured wool hat, instead of the traditional type!
Emma Brown Tweed
Emma Brown Tweed is a brand synonymous with the countryside and agriculture. Her passion for rural life and giving women stylish, fashionable and most of all practical clothing is reflected in her designs. I have one of the lace skirts in ‘thistle’ but it also comes in ‘cloudberry’ – a gorgeous red, perfect for Valentines Day!
Lace Skirt in Cloudberry
As mentioned above, the combination of British tweed with a high-quality lace gives a captivatingly elegant country look! I absolutely love mine and find it the perfect piece to wear for business meetings, right the way through to days at the races! And trust me you are sure to turn heads and have more compliments that you can shake a stick at whilst wearing one of these!
The Glorious Grouse Scarf
Emma drew the grouse herself and had it printed onto crepe du chine to make this charming scarf! Perfect for wearing out in the field during a shoot day, or to dress up and outfit. Again this piece wouldn’t be amiss at the races, worn with the skirt above for instance. Or simply worn with a blouse and jeans for that effortlessly country styled look. A perfect accessory, eliminating the need for more than one scarf as it is so versatile!
Happy Valentines Shopping!
