Ski & Snowboard Resort Print
Help him reminisce or look forward to a trip to his favourite resort with one of these stunning resort prints, which we view as one of the essential gifts for snowboarders for their home office, bedroom, or man cave.
There are plenty of resorts to choose from including Blackcomb pictured here, Aspen, and a whole host of European alternatives such as Chamonix, Tignes, Val D’Isere, and Verbier to name but a few.
Snowboard Display Wall Rack
With snowboard graphics becoming ever more intricate and artistic each year, the brackets are a great way to let them display their pride and joy pride-of-place.
They feature a 100% aluminium construction for added durability and reduced weight, and they’re powder-coated black for a stealthy and classy look.
GoPro HERO 9 Black Waterproof Action Camera
The go-to brand for action cameras, GoPro’s HERO9 Black can record video up to 5K resolution and take pro-quality photos thanks to its 20MP resolution.
What’s more, it features a larger touch screen than previous models for easier use, and it’s waterproof to be able to handle constant sprays of powdery snow (or, y’know, the odd bail).
GoPro Gimbal Stabiliser
Easily one of the best snowboard gifts for him if he likes to record all of the action on the slopes, this GoPro gimbal stabiliser helps provide ultra-smooth footage by removing virtually all of the shake, even on the bumpiest runs.
It’s super-easy to operate one-handed, too, and it features a high-capacity battery capable of an impressive 12-hours of runtime.
Lifeventure Cable Lock
There is an easy solution of course, and that’s to buy him one of these snazzy cable locks to lock up his gear with.
Small enough to fit in his pocket, it features a tough ABS plastic body for added durability. Even better? Thanks to a 4-digit combination, there’s no key to lose!
Reusable Hand Warmer
Help make the ache of cold fingers a thing of the past for a snowboarding friend or loved one with one of these awesome reusable hand warmers. Featuring three temperature settings, it charges in only 2-3 hours but provides up to 8-hours of hand-warming bliss.
Even better? It can also act as a backup battery for their phone, helping ensure they have enough juice to keep in contact with the rest of the group during a long day on the slopes!
Burton Gore Gloves
One of the most useful gifts for snowboarders, a good pair of gloves need to keep his hands both warm and protected, and these gloves from Burton more than live up to these requirements.
Available in a variety of colours, they’re made from a gore material for superior durability, and even feature a removable DRYRIDE thermex liner for extra warmth and waterproofness.
Burton Men’s Covert Snowboard Pant
Featuring a regular fit that’s neither too-tight nor too-baggy, they’re super waterproof thanks to their Dryride two-layer fabric (10,000mm/5,000g) that’s also highly breathable.
What’s more, they feature fully-taped seams to keep the snow out, and they have plenty of pockets for things like his piste map, beanie, phone, and cable lock.
Burton Men’s Covert Snowboard Jacket
It features the same Dryride fabric (10,000mm/5,000g) as the pants to keep him as dry as possible, and it’s available in a ton of different colourways depending on his tastes.
It also has a jacket-to-pant waist gaiter to keep powder out, and has more than enough pockets to hold things in like his phone, goggles, and perhaps most important, lift pass, as securely as possible.
Tech Wash Cleaner & Waterproofer
There’s no need to rush out and buy new clothes ahead of an upcoming trip, however, as more often than not, a simple wash in some waterproofing solution will help restore a jacket and trousers to their former water-repelling glory.
This pack from Nikwax includes both a cleaner to clean clothes, and a wash-in solution to restore water repellency while maintaining breathability.
Men’s Thermal Underwear Set
Available in a variety of colours, this set of thermals includes both thermal leggings and a long-sleeve top, and even though they’re probably one of the least sexy gifts for snowboarders out there, what they lack in aesthetics, they more than make up for in usefulness!
Made from thermal fabric to retain heat, he’ll be particularly glad of these bad boys on those extra cold days on the slopes!
Windproof Thermal Hood
Trust us; the moment he feels a head-on wind while he’s at his most exposed on the chairlift, he’ll be glad to have one of these in his snowboarding arsenal!
Made from a soft fleece-composite fabric that’s machine washable, it features a handy drawstring to close the hood to keep the heat in, and to minimise his face’s exposure to the cold.
Burton Truckstop Beanie Hat
The one-size-fits-all beanie features a classic slouch fit for added style, warmth, and comfort, and is available in either maroon (as pictured here) or green.
Made from 100% acrylic, we reckon that it’s one of the best gifts for snowboarders who care just as much about style as they do about keeping warm!
Men’s Protective Padded Shorts
Both durable and flexible, these shorts offer protection to vulnerable areas including the thigh and tailbone thanks to a series of strategically-placed EVA foam cushions.
Designed to be as inconspicuous as possible under snowboard pants, they’re made from a highly breathable, quick-dry fabric for superior comfort over an entire day on the slopes.
Burton Performance Midweight Socks
From keeping his feet warming to ensuring a more comfortable fit in his snowboard boots, they feature an odour-resistant polypropylene reinforced footbed that will keep them smelling as fresh as possible after a long day on the slopes.
They come with a chafe-free toe seam for added comfort, and a medium-density cushioning throughout the sock that will help soak up those moguls and bumps.
Bern Watts Snowboard Helmet
Available in small, medium, or large to fit a variety of head sizes, our favourite part the addition of Bern’s original visor brim which just looks plain cool.
It’s got a thin-shell construction for reduced weight while still meeting the required safety certifications, and it comes with a premium liner that features Boa technology for superior comfort and a more adjustable fit range.
Smith Project Snow Goggles
These snazzy goggles from Smith are available in either charcoal (as pictured here) or white, and they feature perhaps the most essential goggle feature of all; an anti-fog inner lens that’ll help improve visibility.
They feature compression-moulded face foam for superior comfort, and they’re helmet-compatible, too.
Demon Complete Snowboard Tune Kit
It comes with everything needed to tune even the most beaten-up of boards, including a flat file, edge tuner, wax scraper, iron, and even some P-tex to help with more substantial base repairs.
It all comes packed in a handy carry case, too, to help keep everything safe and secure while not in use.
Butta Rub-On Snowboard Wax
One of the best snowboarding gift ideas for someone who hates unstrapping and walking those long, flat snowcat tracks, Butta’s rub-on wax is ideal for that mid-week speed boost, and there’s no iron required!
18-in-1 Snowboard Multi-Tool
Help your snowboarding-obsessed friend or loved one avoid this gear-related headache by gifting them one of these awesome 18-in-1 snowboard multi-tools.
Our favourite part? Aside from the screwdriver and Allen key bits that will undoubtedly come in handy, it even features that most important of winter trip tools; a bottle opener!
The North Face Base Camp Duffel
Available in a variety of colours, the Base Camp duffel features adjustable, detachable shoulder straps and padded side handles for a variety of carrying options.
You can pack a surprising amount into it thanks to its 71L capacity, and it even has an easy-access zipped pocket for essential items like a passport or piste map!
Dakine Split Roller Travel Luggage
This roller case from Dakine is available in both 85L and 110L sizes depending on the lucky recipient’s needs, and it comes in loads of stylish colourways from carbon (as pictured here) to camo-patterned.
