If you’re skiing or snowboarding this December, forget the stocking because it's all about what will fit into your boot bag, and we've got plenty of gift ideas to choose from whether you're looking for something for yourself or your loved ones. And because we want to do our bit to protect the wild playgrounds we all love, you'll find sustainable choices available from our new Our Planet range too.


Ski or snowboard boots

If you’re looking for the perfect gift to fit into your boot bag, then what better than boots. A must for any serious skier or snowboarder, they'll improve performance and enhance comfort on the slopes. We offer free boot fitting services across our stores, so it is easy to find the perfect fit.

Ski socks

What goes better with new boots than new socks? Helping to keep feet warm and comfortable all day long, ski socks are specially designed with additional support and cushioning right where it’s needed. They’re breathable too and work with modern ski boot liner technology to maximise the spreading of moisture around your whole foot to keep it as dry as possible even when the going gets tough. Trust us, once you’ve tried a pair of performance ski socks, you won’t consider anything else.

Base layers

Although snow or ski boots are sure to go down a storm, as you need to get them correctly fitted, they’re a little tricky to buy as a surprise gift, so if you’re looking for something to sneak in, why not consider a base layer?


A must for the mountains, base layers manage moisture and help keep wearers dry from the inside by moving sweat away from the body. And, as they’ll roll up small, there’s plenty of room in your boot bag to pack your actual boots.


With everything from plain basics to quirky patterns, there’s sure to be the right option for the snowsports lover in your life. Plus, you can choose from some of our must-have brands, including Icebreaker, Odlo, Rab and Helly Hansen.



In the colder conditions of the mountains, it’s important to keep your head warm on the slopes or off, so if there’s one thing mountain lovers can never have enough of its hats.  With a large selection to choose from, including high-performance technical hats that will sit under your helmet to fashion-friendly beanies that look stylish enough for après, we’ve got something for everyone.


You lose heat in your extremities fastest, which is why it’s so important to have high-performance gloves with the best technologies in fabrics, insulations and cuts to suit mountain climates. So if you’re looking for the perfect gift, then gloves are a sure thing. Discover how to pick the perfect pair in our glove buying guide.



Not only do goggles provide vital protection against UV rays which are more intense at higher altitudes, but they can deliver a clear view in varying conditions, so are an absolute must for anyone serious about snowsports.


If they’ve already got goggles, then why not consider protection for them with a cover from Gogglesoc or a paire of sunglasses so they can enjoy après in style?
