Gifts for the horse racing enthusiast are extensive in their variety and regardless of price, gift giving and receiving is something all of us indulge in, no matter what part of the world we come from or what race, religion or culture we belong to.
But why do we give gifts? Well, there are a number of reasons. Tradition is one, especially at Christmas and birthdays, or we may give gifts to reward another’s behaviour but, apart from that, we sometimes give gifts simply to bring joy or pleasure to a loved one or friend. In addition, we can’t ignore the reality that giving someone a gift makes us feel good. All of these reasons, never the less, sometimes just scratch the surface of the motivation behind our gift giving.
History traces the custom of giving gifts right back to pagan times, but usually giving gifts to others is merely an expression of our love to the recipient. When we give a gift we are subconsciously saying “I love and care about you and I was thinking of you when I bought it, and now as you open it, if you like it, this will give me intense pleasure as well”.
Birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, the birth of a baby, graduations, retirements, baptisms, first communions, confirmations, marriages, ordinations, or no special reason are all great times to give a present and if your loved one or friend is a lover of horse racing collectables and all things horsey then I hope you enjoy choosing a horse racing gift for them from this page of ideas.
