We’ve got a whole heap of Christmas gifts for your special skier or snowboarder. From gloves to goggles, you can guarantee this kit won’t end up forgotten in the Festive fallout. There’s heaps of cool stuff from The North Face, Oakley, Stance and Hestra – you won’t have to look far to get some quality in the stocking this year.
The Fall Line Goggle from Oakley combine insane optical clarity with a timelessly stylish design. This mid-size frameless goggle is available in a huge range of colours to suit pretty much anyone. The cylindrical styling is THE undisputable on-trend goggle right now. Unlike some goggle brands, Oakley goes down a treat with skiers and snowboarders alike, so you can be sure this gift will get the right reaction on Christmas Day.
You can’t beat a classic beanie. The North Face take all the cool things about a fisherman’s beanie and leave them just how they should be. A jersey lining adds a decent dose of cosy to this stylish winter headwear. This beanie will make an ace addition to anyone’s stocking.
It’s no secret that Spy makes some sweet optics. The Raider Goggle combine a sturdy construction with a sizeable field-of-view in stylish package that’ll suit most budgets. Built with all the mod-cons of contemporary goggle manufacture, like triple-layer Isotron facefoam, anti-fog dual lenses, wide silicone-ribbed strap and ventilation channels. The Raider does all of this and still rolls in at an affordable price – an ideal gift for you or yours this Christmas. Oh, there’s a spare lens and goggle bag in there too. Nice.
The Scandinavians contribution to quality skiing and snowboarding apparel is seemingly endless, and Peak Performance are no exception. With over 30 years of experience they’ve pretty much dialled the whole concept of ‘functionality meets design’. Their Mason Beanie combines a lambswool blend with a comfortable-fit ribbed knit design – comfortable on its own or under your ski/snowboard helmet.
Hestra’s family-owned heritage is world-renowned. The 80-year-old glove-makers of Norway are founded on key principles of glove design and environmental sustainability. Norwegian’s have a solid reputation for building some of the most robust and practical outdoor kit about, and Hestra are no exception. The Army Leather Heli Ski Gloves combine modern construction techniques with an undisputedly practical design, and durable materials like Goat leather. The Army Leather Heli Ski are designed for deep snow days and long hours outside. Above all, these gloves are built to last. Changeable and removable Bemberg liners and a Triton outer fabric are both warm and robust. Keep the Goat leather palm well looked-after with Hestra’s Leather Balm and these gloves will last for years to come.
The Electra Women’s Mitts from DaKine combine a lightweight and warm layer of 100g Thinsulate Insulation with a DWR-treated shell and a plush Tricot lining. The Electra is ideal for not-so-cold days on the hill, in the park, or just around town. The adjustable hook-and-loop closure seals out the weather and a silicone-ribbed palm stays tacky for maximum grab-ability. Get a pair for yourself, or fill up someone’s stocking this festive season.
Coal are the undisputed modern champions of snowboarding-inspired headwear. Their range is donned by the likes of Scott Stevens, Corey Smith and Jess Kimura – so you know this stuff is legit. The Dina Women’s Beanie continues their legacy of retro-styled hats in this slick bobble-hat. Perfect for any mountain adventure or just kicking about town.
Eivy’s Swedish-style is almost a decade old now, and that’s a testament to their solid-brand and quality clothing. Founded and Directed by Anna Vister, this women’s focussed company is producing functional and super-stylish snow clothing for the slopes. Their Icecold Winter Women’s Tights feature a high-waisted form-fitting style that can be worn solo, or to insulate under ski pants. The Oeko-Tex construction dries fast and keeps your legs cosy for maximum hillside comfort and total snowboarding enjoyment. Grab a few pairs for yourself and chuck a few under the tree and nobody will be disappointed this Christmas.
Not just for the tent, these mules will keep toes cosy pretty much anywhere. The North Face Thermoball IV combine their warm-as synthetic insulation with a water-resistant recycled upper and rubber traction lugs on the sole. Durable, comfortable, and cosy – these are the ideal slipper-shaped stocking filler.
We know, giving someone socks for Christmas is the ultimate cliché, but this one is something special. Stance have collaborated with B4BC (Boarding for Breast Cancer) to create this undeniably cool snow sock for skiing and snowboarding, that helps to promote healthy and active lifestyles – onboard on off. The Stance Chichi’s women’s sock combines their proprietary Feel 360 mapped construction technology with a slick Aztec-inspired design. This makes for a super-supportive sock that wicks away moisture and keeps the wearer feeling comfy, even after a long Christmas Day shred. Fill the stockings with stockings this Christmas.

The original one-piece baselayer will never go out of style. Airblaster’s Classic Ninja Suit combines your standard thermal bottom and top idea into one piece, thus creating an undeniably practical (and super cool) solution to any on-the-mountain insulation issue. These quality suits are built for the hill, but they work pretty well on down-days at the chalet and the occasional festive sleepover.
