You’d have to live in a cave to be unaware that the holiday shopping season is in full swing.
But as any shopper knows, getting the right gift for someone isn’t always easy. It’s a delicate balance of what someone wants with what you can afford. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), there’s a lot of stuff associated with skiing. Ergo, there are loads of gift choices for the skiers in your life.
All the same, it can all be somewhat daunting. So to make your life a little easier, here are some gift suggestions you might want to check out:
The SkiDiva necklace
Truly, a one of a kind item, handcrafted in Vermont by Wenda (no, that isn’t me), this silver pendant on a matching silver chain is the perfect gift for the Ski Divas in your life. Available with your choice of stone: cubic zirconia (diamond-like), amethyst (purple), garnet (dark red), and topaz (blue). 16″ or 18″ chain. Go here.
Hot Gear Bag
Keeps your boots warm and dry so you say “Ahhhhhhhhh” instead of “Brrrrrrrrrr” when you put them on. Ski Divas can get 10% off by clicking here.
Opedix Base Layers
Opedix tights and posture shirts are engineered to improve joint alignment in the knees and shoulders. This can increase stability and strength while also reducing wear and tear by ‘unloading’ the joints. Go here and use discount code SkiDiva10 for 10% off.
What could be better than treating someone to a day of skiing? You can get discount tickets for areas all over the country through Liftopia. Go here.
Am I hung up on warm, toasty feet? Could be. But when you’re skiing in brutally cold temperatures, nothing beats the BootGloves, a neoprene sleeve you wear over your boot for continued warmth. Go here.
Double Black. Or Fade To White.
Okay, this may be a little self serving, since both books are written by me. They’re ski mysteries that focus on Stacey Curtis, a young Bostonian who ditches her cheating fiance, moves to a small Vermont ski town, and takes up the life of a ski bum. Along the way, she encounters a host of quirky characters, some exciting adventures, and yes —- even murder. Double Black came out in January, 2010, and Fade To White hits the stores a little late for Christmas — January 4, 2011 — but you could pre-order it at your local bookstore. You can find out more about them here.
