During the holiday season, we spend so much time thinking about the big ticket gifts that the little things get overlooked. It seems like every year I forget about stocking stuffers, but in my experience, those smaller items are some of the most useful gifts for years to come. Here are couple great stocking stuffers for skiers and snowboarders that will surely be a thoughtful surprise without breaking your budget.
Ski Movies fit perfectly in stockings and provide hours of entertainment. They’re a great choice for any movie buff and are usually less than $30.
The Joshua Tree Winter Stick makes protecting your skin from the elements effortless for skiers and snowboarders. Most people don’t realize UV rays are magnified on the slopes because of the reflection from the snow and can cause harm to the skin. The Winter Stick helps protect, sooth & rejuvenate wind chapped and sun burned skin and is made with all-natural ingredients.
Although it is an often forgotten essential, every savvy skier and snowboarder needs wax to tune up their gear. With different waxes for different temperature ranges, they can never have enough options for various snow conditions. Plus, it starts around $10-$15 and makes a great gift.
Nikwax Wash is a product designed specifically for outerwear. If the skier on your list is wearing dirty jackets and pants or has washed them in the past and their garments have lost their waterproofing, Nikwax makes products to re-waterproof and products wash waterproof clothing.
Stance Socks are the perfect stocking gift for people with bright personalities. The socks are made with unique patterns and designs to show off personal style on and off the slopes. Choose from athletic styles, casual styles and ski and snowboard socks starting at $10.
Skiers and snowboarders can never have enough beanies. It’s nice to have a variety of options to match your outerwear and your après ski outfits. Fill their stocking with a warm gift to use all winter long.
Whether your traditions are to open your stocking gifts on St. Nicholas Day (December 6) or on Christmas morning, the snow lover on your list will have a merrier Christmas with these gift ideas.
