Want to See Inside the Hihi & Co - Be All You Can Be Gift Bag?

My last blog post ended on a cliffhanger...and now the contents of my gift bag from the amazing Hiho & Co - Be All You Can Be Event is revealed...

I will start with the first product I pulled out of the gorgeous purple gift bag that channels my passion, or should that read my OCD? I adore keeping everything - with the exception of my farming chic Land Rover - squeaky clean and sparkling, so I was excited to get my hands on an Albion Leather Soap and Balm Duo Pot. Founded in 1985, Albion are a truly British brand and their name means Old England. The company are dedicated to their equestrian roots, recognised and known for their leather and how to care for it. 

The soap element is gentle and perfect for cleaning excess sweat and mud from leather. This is complimented by the balm, a 200 years old Swiss formula, originally developed to care for leathers exposed to extreme conditions, to nourish and protect against the elements. I have often admired the product on show trade stands at events because the packaging of the larger pots is so stylish, they'd add class to any tack room and are something I would invest in following my taster pot. This week I've used it on my bridle, breastgirth and boots...its fabulous!

A Blackdown Shepherds Hut Wooden Board was included, because we all know this is how tea and biscuits should be served. A simple, stylish and a beautiful hand crafted reminder of our perfect location for the day. I now dream of having a Blackdown Shepherds Hut in the garden!

A day with Fairfax and Favor wouldn't be complete without tassels and a Premium Handbag Tassel was inside. I popped it straight on my car keys and it works just as well as a keyring as it does a handbag accessory. I adore the Fairfax and Favor brand, their dedicated team, the marketing, products, ethics...everything, I wish I had more of it in my wardrobe - if only the ponies didn't take up so much of my money, something I am sure those reading will empathise with. 

Hiho Silver pulled out all of the stops and spoilt each of us with personalised Silver Letter Roller Bead Necklaces. My roller bead has engraved a big J a little j and is looped onto a pretty silver chain, presented in the most amazing purple boxed packaging. I won't lie I am a little bit in love with it, something I would buy as the perfect gift but never splurge on for myself, it filled me with delight to receive it. 

I touched on Chris from Mackenzie and George making the stylish lanyards in my last post and they were just a taste of what was to come. A Premium Leather Luggage Tag from their Travel Collection; handmade in their workshop embossed with each of our initials...yes, another wow moment. Can I use this as an excuse to book a holiday...?

A refreshing change from my usual coffee and earl grey addiction, Cupsmith's provided a taster of their Garden Mint Tea. The companies brand statement "for the finer drinks in life" suits this tea, it is naturally caffine free and the pyramid bags are biodegradable, happy to end their life on our compost heap. Served hot or cold from the fridge, this is delicious and a welcome change from the norm.

Finally the Joules Tiewell Embroidered Neckerchief got my Mumma and I in the mood for spring; bright, polka dot and jolly, Mrs C definitely models it better than I do! A classic, every wardrobe needs one, casual or formal it works and comes in red, yellow and navy. 

Not forgetting the inspiring cards from Rhea Freeman and Sophie Callahan that are now positioned around the house for me to glance at daily; #girlpower and the discount for a Dressage Anywhere test, that could possibly be Arnold's first competition?!

Writing everything down makes me realise how much thought, hard work and generosity went into the event and the gift bags we were given to take home. I am incredibly grateful and feel like I have relived the day all over again. Now, until the next one...
