SnoCountry's Best Last Minute Gifts For Snow Lovers
We know that feeling: All the best gifts have been bought by now and you couldn’t possibly come up with something original… or could you? Yes, we can appreciate a good bottle of wine or a gift basket but we’ll do a jig over any of these last-minute gift ideas. Photos are below:
Street style meets the mountains with these Swany mitt offshoots. These stay warm and durable even when wet. The ladies’ version comes with a touchscreen capable liners. $80
If your lady loves fun, hip retro looks, this is the ultimate après ski boot. You’re not regifting your mom’s Moon Boots from the 70s, but creating a whole new trend for marshmallow footwear. Water-resistant and uber warm. $120.
Shake up your outdoor program with a pair of on-trail snowshoes. The Hike has just the right balance between techy materials and ergonomic design. They are made to go longer and steeper and the single strap pull-and-go entry make them easier and faster to get on. $139.
Put a bow on this stylish mug and go from house to hill with fresh hot java on Christmas morn. Even if the leftover coffee sits around in your bag, it won’t spill or get cold. You can also lock the spout so you don’t have to worry about trying to push a button with sloppy gloves.
No need to ‘underlayer’ for skiing with the Dakine Women's Tech (LS or SS). It's not only super cute but it’s one of the only base layer tops with a built-in shelf bra! The flatlock seams means zero chafe and a quick-dry UPF 50+ poly/spandex helps when shedding layers in the backcountry. $45
Classic Bolle Cat Eyes are back in the form of the Greta. The translucent, butterfly-shaped frame paired with polarized lenses makes a great look on and off the slopes. $80
Run, don’t walk (or slip) in the latest spikes from Kahtoola. The Nanos are extremely light yet durable. The tungsten carbide studs have a stepped and tapered shock absorbing cleat around them for wear resistance and unbeatable traction. $50
Everyone knows that ski trips can be a financial drain. Make it fun for the whole family to chip in and save with the Travel Fund Jar. Personalize it with your name and type of vacation. Even better, fill it up and wrap it as a hint of your upcoming vacation. $20
