2020 has been tough for all, so help bring a smile to her face and let’s end the year with sparkle and fun gifts.
She’ll look ice cool but be toasty warm in Holland Cooper’s Ice Pink Coach Jacket. Price £149.
This lightweight insulating jacket has a super stretchy quilted body which is perfect for horseriding but also great for a Christmas Day walk or light run. She’ll be able to wear by itself or under other outerwear pieces.

What is better than one present? Answer:TWO!!
