Shay’s holiday gift guide
01 Dec, 2008
All the snowboard magazines do holiday guides…but I was bummed to see that the gifts were pretty spendy (unless of course your parents were buying them). Not that my friends don’t deserve brand new snowboards but it’s just a bit out of my price range to buy them that.
So I put together the top 11 gifts for those looking to give gifts that won’t cost them months to pay off and your friends will be stoked cause they are rad gifts.
As someone who has a couple C3 Screen Prints on my walls, these really are cool designs and gifts. Especially for those who love the horrorscope graphics but can’t afford the horrorscope snowboard.
Spacecraft makes some amazing wallets, I know I’ve owned two of them and use them daily. With a variety of artwork to choose from, you are guaranteed to get compliments.
eesa socks (sox)
Lets be honest…you can never have enough snowboard socks. When the winter hits and you need to keep you feet warm and toasty, eesa makes some damn fine socks and they look good too! If you live in a cold climate, you can wear them to work and take off your shoes under your desk and feel like a million bucks while making minimum wage.
If you have a friend who smells like a certain substance, this is the perfect gift for them.
Whether it’s tiny earbuds no one will notice or big headphones that will tell people never to talk to you on the mountain…listen to the beats while snowboarding.
A block of wax will go a long way…and by buying the bird, you give the bird to Willie who gives the bird to the rest of the world. It’s sweet wax and the secret is scraping the wax when it’s still warm.
By spring time, it’s good to have a light pair of gloves for those warmer days whether hiking pipe or just for cruising. What better way to show off glove love…than high 5’ing your friends, pulling a stache or giving the shocker on the mountain.
For those who need to stay out of the sun or on those icy cold days to protect your face from the winds…the bandana is for you. With nice fleece lining so you stay warm and cozy to the outside making you look all G’d out, this is it.
The shirt speaks for itself and by far it is my favorite shirt of the year…shark, gnarly…perfection.
Pick up one of the newest snowboard flicks and you can watch it over and over with your friends.
