We know Christmas shopping can be tough. So if you know someone who loves to ski, this list of present ideas for skiers will get you started. We've selected our favourite ski-themed presents, with something to suit every budget!
1. A Trip of a Lifetime to the French Alps
Let's start with the ultimate gift, a dream holiday to a snow-capped mountain for an amazing winter break! We've got plenty of new properties and many resorts across the Alps have spent the summer getting ready for the ski season. Remember, it's always worth checking out what deals are available too.
2. GoPro Camera
Another extravangent gift option is the GoPro camera. Each season GoPro are announcing more up-to-date versions allows every moment of a day on the slopes to be perfectly captured. It really has taken the sports photography world by storm and is a 'must have' for anyone who enjoys the thrills of the slopes.
3. Ski Goggles
An essential item in any skiers kit, goggles come in many designs including differences in ventilation systems and lenses. Have a look at various options over at Spy Optic or Panda Optics.
4. Home Dècor
These maps from Frozen Undergound are lots of fun and come in various sizes and prints! We love this great home accessory gift for skiing fans!
5. A Fun T-shirt
Who doesn't love a good t-shirt? We've found a few but found this ‘I do all my own stunts’ t-shirt from Zazzle pretty humerous! It’s also available in a wide range of colours and is customisable so you can tailor it for your loved one.
6. A Good Book
There are plenty of ski-themed books on the market, but we're keeping our eyes peeled for the France edition of this guide out in 2018. These comprehensive guides by Where to Ski and Snowboard are an essential book for any skier and a great Christmas stocking filler!
Daybags are perfect for anyone who spends their days on the slopes. We've seen a good selection at Absolute Snow including this 14L backpack in smoke/graphite which is lightweight, comfortable and with its jacket suspension system, is ideal for carrying those gear essentials on the slopes.
8. Essential Clothing
A traditional present doesn't have to be naff this year, how about purchasing some ski socks! Not only are these socks from Snow and Rock comfortable and boldly designed, but a percentage from every pair sold is also donated to the Right to Play charity.
9. Novelty Gifts
You'd don't have to break the bank to get your favourite skier something they'd appreciate. For example, this luggage tag from Zazzle with printed 'Keep Calm and Ski' slogan has a leather strap and will help avoid bag mix-ups on ski trips!
10. Fun Gifts!
For that skier in your lift who loves to laugh! This is a fun Christmas gift (and an ideal secret santa present!) from Beard Head available in a range of styles and colours - the beard beanie is a face warmer with a twist!
