Ski Christmas presents

With Christmas nearly upon us, it’s time to face the crowds of people, grin and bear the Christmas music and hit the shops for some Christmas shopping! But with so many stockings to fill and so many people on Santa’s Nice List, it’s hard to know where to start. Don’t fret, we’re here to help and along with the founder of H. Holderness, Henrietta, we’ve come up with the ultimate list of Christmas gifts for ski lovers!

So here it is, our guide to the best ski Christmas presents that skiing enthusiasts will want to find under their tree…



For the one who wants fashionable thermals…

Christmas gifts for ski lovers

New Zealand Base-Layer Leggings by H. Holderness – £50

Base-layers are the best kept secret of ski gear. A great outer layer is important for keeping out the cold, but what’s underneath matters even more. These thermal leggings are designed to perform on the slopes and look good enough to show off at the end of the day – be it a drink in hand at après or relaxing in the chalet besides the log fire. Aside from the thermo-regulating fabric that promises to keep out the cold, they also feature 4-way stretch and minimum seams for maximum comfort. I’m sure you can think of a stylish skier who would love these in their Christmas stocking!

For the one who loves to stay snug on the slopes…

Christmas gift for skiers

Ember MK1 Phoenix Mitten by Ember – £69

There’s nothing worse than sitting on a chairlift slowly feeling your fingers turn to ice. If you know someone that this resonates with, we’ve found the perfect pair of mittens for them. Ember have created the gloves of any chilly person’s dreams – think electric blankets for your hands. They have a 4-setting heat system to tackle all temperatures – and most importantly, no more frozen fingers! If you know someone who is always cold, then they’ll definitely appreciate this Christmas present – plus, they don’t just have to be worn for skiing…



For the adventurer…

Gifts for ski lovers

Ski Survival Kit by Men’s Society – £25

This one is a great little stocking filler for any ski lover. The mini pack can easily be slipped into a pocket so it won’t weigh you down on the mountain. Plus, it contains all the essentials – after sun, lip balm, sunglasses cord and most importantly, a hip flask. You really can’t go wrong with this ski survival kit!



For the powder hound…

Freerider 22 Orange Avabag Inclus by Orthodox – £600.99

If you know someone who always ventures off-piste, make sure they’re prepared with this Orthodox airbag rucksack. It features a shorter back than most other bags making it a great fit for women. Their ski guide will be happy to give them a lesson in how to use it so they’re fully prepared, or send them Henry’s famous avalanche talks. Although slightly pricey, any off-piste skier will tell you how important it is to have the right gear, so it’s money well spent.



For the Christmas jumper enthusiast…

For the thrill seeker…

Best gifts for ski lovers

Sometimes the best way down the mountain is by taking the scenic route. French ski brand, Black Crows, have long been an off-piste cult favourite and these award-winning Captis Birdie’s are no exception.

For the one who wants to soak away sore muscles…
