Christmas is just around the corner . . . nine weeks away today.
What was once a 12 Weeks ’till Christmas countdown here at Screen Doors & Saddles has evolved into nine weeks. Really, what was I thinking? Does anyone really want to know this detail, whether nine or 12? Seriously, I\’m just getting my head wrapped around Halloween.
Still, I can\’t deny it, the 25th of December looms and over the next nine weeks I’m going to share a few unique Christmas gift ideas with you – offerings geared specifically for country and western living – my favorite genre of shopping. I hope you\’ll find something that catches your eye and incites a cross off your list.
By the way, if you\’re not a subscriber to the print magazine, it\’s a great time to join up, and also give a gift. We have a holiday subscription special currently on – two for one! Only $24.95 – two subscriptions for the price of one – catch it here.
On to this week\’s Christmas gift idea. I recently caught wind of a nifty new equine subscription service. A Horse Box is a unique home delivery gift idea that\’s been omnipresent in the U.S.A. for sometime, and just launched this August in Canada.
The folks at A Horse Box kindly sent me the August box to review and it really impressed with the choice of products. I really like this idea. How much fun is it to receive A Horse Box? Akin to a mini-Christmas, I tell \’ya! It\’s innovative, brilliant, fun and a perfect anecdote for the hard-to-buy for rider, or anyone who loves to try new horse products.
This box of goodies in mini-sizes merit attention, and offer up a perfect way to test out an array of equine products you might otherwise miss on the store shelf, or just never think of trying.
Here\’s how it works: Each month members receive 5-7 handpicked items – from grooming products to alternative health items and gourmet treats.
Even. . . MAGAZINES!
That\’s right, I\’m thrilled to let you know that A Horse Box has partnered with Western Horse Review and thousands of A Horse Box deliveries in early 2014 – in both the U.S. and Canada – will contain the Jan/Feb issue, bundled with a special subscription offer.
I hope you love the sample issue, as much as I love A Horse Box.
P.S. A Horse Box is available for order in the United States and Canada, each with a separate order website. I\’ve linked them here for your convenience.
