When there are skiers in the family, there is never a shortage of wonderful gift ideas for them whether it be for the festive season, birthdays or those “just because” times.
With Christmas upcoming, we have put together this list of possible gift choices for those who love to be on the slopes.
Thermocharge Hand Warmer
Let’s face it, being high on a mountain can get pretty cold. Skiers often struggle with frozen fingers, so having a hand warmer at the ready is a great idea. Never mind disposable warmers – they’re wasteful and usually don’t give skiers the warmth they need. The Thermocharge hand warmer provides six hours of heat on the slopes and can be charged overnight via a USB port. It also has a secondary function as a phone charger. A phone’s battery is depleted much quicker in the cold, so it’s great that a skier can simply plug his or her phone into this hand warmer to boost the battery.
GoPro Hero Session
This super powerful little action sports GoPro Hero Session is the little brother of the famous GoPro camera. With incredibly high performance specs for something so small, it does a good job of keeping up with its big brother. Waterproof, robust and compact, the Hero Session makes the perfect partner gift for someone who adores skiing adventures. A super simple single button to turn on, record and turn off, makes it easy to use with gloves and ensures skiers don’t waste any time setting it up, when they could be out charging on the mountain. Skiers can slip it onto a helmet mount and their whole day can be recorded and re-lived.
The boutique ski making company, Unique, specializes in making customers ooh and aah over beautifully handcrafted skis. It’s true, the skis are visually beautiful, but they are also designed with pure quality. Made with hand selected materials for only the very best in durability and aesthetics, Unique skis are designed to excel in “real” conditions and will float wonderfully on powder days, deal with hard-packed snow excellently and are easily maneuverable on all terrain. There is only one shape available in three different lengths and according to Unique Skis, that’s all skiers will ever need for versatile freeskiing experiences.
Villa Ruella, Park City, Utah
When it comes to prestigious and elegant ski in-ski out luxury vacation homes, they don’t get any more amazing than Villa Ruella in Park City. Encircled by forested mountains at the base of Monitor Bowl, this estate sits on five acres of pristine woodlands with ski in-ski out access at The Colony at White Pine Canyon. This home was designed with exceptional amenities including an indoor-outdoor pool, wellness spa, gym, Himalayan salt room, cold plunge pool, hot tub, hammam, infrared sauna, massage room, climbing wall, bowling alley, cinema room and more. There are accommodations for 10 adults and eight children in the utmost privacy and comfort, yet sparing no amount of luxury.
Poleplant Bamboo Poles
For eco-conscious skiers, Poleplant poles would be an ideal gift for the skier on your list. Not only are they constructed with sustainable and exceptionally strong bamboo (twice as strong as aluminium), but Tignes based Poleplant also handcraft poles to exact specifications. Purchasers get to choose the type and color of handles, add an extra touring grip if they like, and even personalize poles with a name or some inspirational quote engraved onto the bamboo. Useful personalized gifts for skiers do actually exist!
Whether skiers are relaxing at their home bars or on the road, this wood-trim flask is an attractive accessory for warming up with their favorite beverages. The stainless steel flasks are wrapped in hand-cut, 100% real wood sourced in the United States. This is a simple, yet lovely and appreciated gift.
Ski Goggles by Prada/Oakley
The skier on your list will be wowed by these amazing ski goggles – Ski goggles Prada Linea Rossa by Oakley. These feature large contourless lenses, providing enhanced peripheral vision. Prizm technology optimizes the visual experience and accentuates details, ensuring optimal visibility on sunny or cloudy days. The adjustable elasticated strap is compatible with the Prada Linea Rossa by Oakley ski helmet and other types of helmets.
The black Glam helmet by Goldbergh is functional and stylish. This luxury helmet features a golden visor with a lens 2 category; strap holder for goggles; size adjuster; adjustable ventilation system; gold Goldbergh logos on the ear pads and visor; and a fabric lining. Keep your favorite skier safe and chic.
For the avid male skier on your list, the Adunco mock turtleneck ski sweater from Max Mara would be a lovely and appreciated gift that would go from the slopes to après ski. This classic style evokes a chic aesthetic. The piece features 100% soft virgin wool. With Max Mara's history of impeccable tailoring dating back to 1850, incredible craftsmanship has remained an integral part of the label's heritage and designer lifestyle.
There is nothing worse than putting on ski boots with wet insides. A skier is sure to love getting a boot dryer in his or her Christmas stocking. The DryGuy Travel Dry DX Boot Dryer offers a pair of energy bar-sized fans slides that neatly slip into boot liners and plug into an included AC/DC power adapter, so boots can even be dried in a vehicle. The hybrid system pulls air over a thermal element before venting, heating boots (great for regular shoes, too) and drying them faster than a traditional fan system. Drying takes between two and five hours depending on the level of moisture.
