Whitley, Warwickshire, 29 November 2011 – With Christmas fast approaching, there’s no better time to find the perfect Land Rover gift for a friend or loved-one. From a cosy ‘ice hat’ with furry thermal lining to keep you warm this winter, to the latest in fashion sun glasses ready for next summer; there’s a gift for every taste and season. Land Rover Experience driving days or indeed the ultimate gift; a new Land Rover or Range Rover will most certainly make this Christmas extra special.
Land Rover Gear (visit www.landrovergear.com) has a wealth of ideas that reflect Land Rover’s heritage, innovation and iconic designs. True to the pioneering spirit of the brand, there are plenty of options for those who love the great outdoors, from all-weather clothing using the latest high-tech fabrics to practical kit items such as the colourful rug that’s in keeping with Land Rover’s drive for sustainability, being made from recycled yarn.
There are also some quirky new additions to the range including a collapsible kettle that’s lightweight and perfect when space is at a premium, and a great match with the new Land Rover insulated travel mug. The same clever folding design concept has been applied to a new dog bowl, too, which joins a colourful matching lead and collar as a gift idea for the family pet.
For stocking fillers there are plenty of options for less than £20, including T-shirts, key rings, pens, caps, mugs and belts. The Land Rover Spencer Bear has joined the range in time for Christmas, and for those dark nights, the LED Lenser keyring torch features the Blue Moon Focus System, which allows quick transition from circular low beam to focussed long distance light.
Range Rover Collection
The Range Rover Collection offers just the same distinctive style and quality as the luxury vehicle range, expressed in fine leather goods, wristwatches and accessories. For the Christmas season, the choice has been extended with a number of gift ideas, including key rings, torches, umbrellas and a chic lambswool wrap.
The multi-award winning new Range Rover Evoque is available – in miniature – as a novel computer mouse, complete with LED lights, or USB memory stick.
For a totally unique gift this Christmas why not treat someone to the thrill of driving off-road with Land Rover Experience at one of our 10 centres nationwide. Whether it be a full or half day course, or even a night drive, it’ll soon become clear just what a real off-road vehicle can do.
