No one wants to be the out-of-touch relative who gives terrible gifts, but even the savviest of Santas can find themselves floundering when it comes to snowboarders. That’s where we come in. No more fake smiles and forced thank yous – this year, you’re getting it right, with guaranteed hits for every rider and every budget.



Socks for Christmas are making a comeback. Actually, for snowboarders, they never went out of style. Decent socks can literally be the difference between a good day on the mountain and a bad one, and going riding in a brand new pair of socks is a pretty special feeling (trust us).


Resist the temptation to just buy the thickest socks available – technical socks are designed to provide all the warmth a boarder needs. Merino wool is the best option for all-day warmth, but if they’re not generally bothered by cold feet, synthetic socks also perform.


We have a great selection of socks available to suit all budgets so whether you're looking for a stocking filler or a main gift, you'll be spoilt for choice.


To non-boarders, these might seem a weird gift, but the difference a binding upgrade makes to comfort and performance is huge. Don't worry if you don't even know what bindings are, our in-store experts will be able to help. With years of experience on the mountains, they'll help you find bindings perfect for the boarder in your life.


At Snow+Rock we stock bindings to suit all types of boots and boards and have options for all abilities and styles of riding, so whether they're new to boarding, have years of experience on and off-piste or love to perfectt their butters in the park, we'll have the right bindings for them.


GPS watch/activity tracker

For those with a bigger budget, a GPS watch/activity tracker is not just a great present at face value – the real gift comes later, when they can brag to their friends about how many runs they did in a day. With the latest models loaded with tech like ski resort trail maps which let them mark out secret spots to head back to, if you’re going all-out this Christmas, gifts for adventurous boarders don’t get better than this.


We stock some of the biggest name brands in the industry, including Garmin and Suunto, so you can shop with the peace of mind you've nailed gifting this year. 


Action camera and accessories

This classic pre-snowboarding trip gift is a favourite for a reason. We wouldn’t recommend a chest-mount for a boarder (unless they like endless footage of the sides of runs), but a handheld grip combined with a camera makes for an unbeatable gift they’ll take to the slopes for years to come. 


Base layers

Far from your basic thermal underwear, base layers are indispensable on the slopes and will stick with a rider for life if they’re treated well. As with socks, merino wool is the best option if it’s warmth you’re after, but some people prefer the feel of synthetic or to go for a blend to find the balance between performance and price. Either way, they’re a failsafe gift.


From eager-eyed beginners to seasoned backcountry boarders, we've got the best gifts for the snowsports-obsessed right here. You can browse and shop gifts online, or if you'd like helping picking the perfect gift then visit your nearest Snow+Rock store for some expert advice.
