Gift Basket Ideas for Snowboarders and Skiers (Part V)


Smartwool PhD Ski Light Elite Buttermilk Nights Print

With artwork from professional skier Chris Benchetler, these socks are made to inspire. The socks are ideal for high-performance backcountry pursuits, thanks to the Indestructawool durability technology and body-mapped mesh zones.

Carhartt Acrylic Watch Hat

You can never go wrong with a Carhartt hat. Dependable, affordable, and stylish, it keeps the head warm on and off the slopes and is bound to score some street cred. An added bonus: it comes in over 35 colors.

Yeti Rambler HotShot Bottle

Tote hot chocolate, hot coffee, or hot toddies all over the mountain in this leakproof, stainless steel 12-oz. vessel. A half-twist of the HotShot cap offers easy sipping while the double-wall vacuum insulation keeps beverages warm or cold for hours. 

Vermont Smoke and Cure Beef and Pork Sticks

The perfect lift grub is savory, simple, and shareable. This perfectly describes this sampler pack of meat sticks. The Cracked Pepper, BBQ, and Chipotle-flavored snacks are free of antibiotics, artificial preservatives, and added hormones. They’re also absolutely delicious.

The North Face Thermoball Bootie

With a water-resistant, 100% recycled ripstop upper, partially recycled rubber outsole, and cozy PrimaLoft synthetic insulation, these booties are a welcome respite from even the least distressing ski boot.

Get your skier a good pair of gloves.
