In brief: Neither one

Gingko has never been shown to have any beneficial effects on veins whatsoever. Although horse chestnut is supposed to stabilize vein walls and make them less "leaky", so that you might have less swelling, it has no effect on the appearance of spider veins.

In brief: Horse Chestnut

The only decent studies I have seen support horse chestnut but more for venous insufficiency not spider veins.
