The Ultimate Snowboarder’s Christmas Gift Guide

What to get the sender in your life for Christmas

Christmas is coming the goose is getting loose, blah blah. There are a few universal truths surrounding the festive season- your Auntie Maureen will have had one too many sherries and will relentlessly try to kiss you on the cheek, you’ll eat too much and abruptly enter a post-dinner food coma, you’ll get an orange in your stocking, and you’ll spend the next 4-6 days eating turkey sandwiches.

“A Christmas gift guide that’s scientifically proven to improve your Christmas by 37%”

There are, however, two things that everyone loves about Christmas- Pigs in Blankets and presents.  The lil’ piggies are easy, the presents sometimes aren’t so easy. Deciding what gift to get someone can be a minefield. We’ve all received our fair share of shite presents that either end up getting regifted to someone at the office Christmas party the following year, or swiftly donated to a charity shop come January when you’re midway through your ‘New Year, New Me’ clear out. Stop putting your friends and relatives through the torment of having to hastily try and rearrange their facial features into something resembling a smile when they unwrap your gift.

The nerds at Whitelines have been researching for months and have sorted out a TSA Christmas gift guide that’s scientifically proven to improve your Christmas by 37%.* Have a browse and get some ideas what to get the sender in your life for Christmas. Happy Birthday Santa!

*Disclaimer, I can’t even count to 37, all statistics in this article are 106% made up.

Whitelines Annual

Make someone very happy this festive season with the Whitelines Annual. Issue 121 brings readers over 240 pages of epic content from the best writers and photographers in the game, past and present. This is a collector’s item for those who believe that snowboarding is more than just a sport, beautifully presented in a large, coffee table format.

Stance Sage Kotsenburg Socks

Socks are one of the most overlooked parts of a snowboarding set up, but they’re one of the most important things to get right. Sticking on a groady old sock will just lead to problems in the long run. These badboys are Sage Kotsenburg approved – so you know they’re pretty damn good. The blend of materials used focuses on comfort, the wool won’t absorb odour and moisture like a synthetic alternative and is one of the softest things you can chuck on your feet.

Dakine Women’s Fleetwood Mitt

Jamie Anderson’s signature mitt from Dakine, this little beauty is just at home crushing steep lines in AK as it is sweeping gold medals in Pyeongchang. High loft synthetic insulation runs through the mitt and is housed inside a soft fleece lining. The palm is a softer, grippier material for sticking those tricky grabs and to make sure you don’t drop the ball. Removable wrist leashes mean you can say goodbye to that heart dropping moment when you see your favourite mitt fluttering off the side of the chairlift.

Bataleon Kids Mini Shred Pack

When the Mini Shred first came along, Bataleon well and truly debunked the myth that you couldn’t have a quality made, performance-driven snowboard that was still super easy for groms to link their first turns on. And to do all that at a price point that doesn’t result in Santa having to take out a last-minute loan?  Now we’re talking. Unlike a lot of junior decks that are often filled with cheaper, composite materials and non-existent flex patterns, the Mini Shred uses the same wood core and biax laminates found in much of Bataleon’s line.
