Christmas Gift Ideas for Snowboarders: 15 Great Gifts Every Female Snowboarder Will Love
With winter finally here, snowboarders are in their element. Literally. Christmas is the perfect time to treat the snowboarder in your life to some swag.
Whether it's a new snowboard (hello!) or pair of goggles, you pretty much can't go wrong with the following products.
Even if you're not buying for anyone, you can always treat yourself to a present, right?
1) DC Cruiser Women's Snowboard Jacket
Looking for a rad jacket to rock on the slopes this season? We are loving this leopard print one from DC.
It is waterproof and tailored to give a slightly more fitted shape.
It's not the warmest jacket out there, but it is perfect for warm spring park riding - or just layer it up on those colder days.

2) Nikita Nanna Women's Snowboard Pants
Nikita are one of the most awesome female snowboard brands out there. Every season they come out with seriously rad patterns.
Even for something as straight forward as snowboard pants, they get it bang on. These trousers are baggy without being too gangster and they come in useful shades of maroon or grey.
They have critically taped seams and boot gaiters. Guaranteed you will love riding in them.

3) Roxy XOXO Mirror Women's Snowboard
This is a really fun freestyle board, designed by Olympian Torah Bright for ripping up the park.
The XOXO Mirror is a true twin with soft to medium flex. It's got great edge control in all conditions. The core is made from a soft sustainable wood making it easier to manoeuvre.

4) Stance Campvibes Snow Socks
Snowboard socks need to be warm and comfortable. If they look good as well, that's a real bonus.
We are absolutely loving this pair from Stance Socks, designed in collaboration with Poler Stuff.

5) Mons Royale Thermal Leggings & Tank Top
Price: £44 / £59.99
Many people have different opinions on base layers for snowboarding, but merino wool is often recognised as one of the best.
It's made with naturally insulation merino wool. It also has sweat wicking properties, which draws the moisture away from your body when you sweat. Plus they don't smell as bad as cotton or polyester base layers.
These ones from Mons Royale look awesome and will last you for many seasons to come. We are big fans.
6) Roxy Biotherm Snood
Everyone needs a neckwarmer to pull up when it get cold - particularly on that one icy chairlift that seems to exist in every ski resort.
Roxy have teamed up with cosmetic company Biotherm to create a snood that looks ace while caring for your skin on the slopes at the same time.
The fabric inside is infused with shea butter and apricot oil - and is meant to soften your skin while you ride. Clever, huh?

7) K-nit Beanie
Price: £28 to £28
British company K-nit make beanies with a twist - you can design your own using their online designer tool.
Choose your style and pattern, pick the colours your want - and they will make your hat to order. Cool, eh?
We picked the Arthur (above) and it came out great. Perfect for people who can never find the right coloured beanie.

8) Volcom Stone Studs Stomp Pad
Stomp pads are useful when you are riding one-footed.
Just stick these stone studs to the back of your board - where you place your foot when you are riding one-footed - for extra grip.

9) Bahru Snowboard Necklace
How cute is this mini snowboard necklace from Dorset-based jewellery company Bahru?
Made from sterling silver, these necklaces are hand crafted and delivered in a nice tin filled with rose petals. Ideal for the snowboarder in your life.
So even when you're not on the slopes, at least you can carry a piece with you.

10) Poler Stuff Zip Hoodie
Poler Stuff came out of nowhere and made camping cool again. They also make rad clothing that you can wear from the beach to the mountains.
This zip hoodie is awesome - it makes a great mid layer when you're riding or just to wear chilling at home.
It comes in this nice ol' shade of blue - plus the design on the back looks awesome. Check it out by clicking the link below.

11) Celtek Hello Operator Gloves
Mittens rock. They really do. If you suffer from cold hands, people swear that mittens do a better job at keeping them warm than gloves.
This rad pair from Celtek come in the coolest range of designs - from floral to rainbow unicorns.
We like the fact that they leave your forefinger separate - to make it easier to do up your bindings and wipe your goggles.

12) Keen Elsa Snow Boots
When you're not wearing your snowboard boots, you're going to need something else to withstand the ice and cold.
These boots from Keen are right up our street. We love the fact that they not only look awesome (check out that aztec fabric) but they are waterproof and warm.
Plus the high-traction sole means you won't be slipping on the ice all the time. Looking for more snow boots? Check out our 2015 guide here.

13) XSories Tuxsedo GoPro Case
If, like us, you tend to get your mate's GoPro mixed up with your own, then check out these GoPro 'tuxedos' from XSories.
The idea is you buy one of these neoprene jackets, so you keep the shell protected and don't get it confused with someone else's.

14) Oakley Flight Deck Goggles
Oakley are one of the best goggle manufacturers in the world. The Flight Deck come in a rainbow array of colours.
The lens have a handy anti-fog coating and quick release system so you can easily swap them over.
We will definitely be wearing a pair of these on the slopes this season.

If you really want to make a snowboarder happy this Christmas, you need to get them a McNair shirt.
These creations are one-of-a-kind merino wool riding shirts made for the mountains. They are super soft while being tough, water resistant, wind resistant and very warm.
You can choose from long or regular fit - and they've even got some made to measure options available.
