Christmas Gift Ideas 2015


First of all may I wish you a very Merry Christmas! I hope the panic hasn’t set in yet when you are scrabbling around doing a bit of last minute shopping. There are still a few days to go… just!

If you are stuck on a few certain members of the family then here are a few ideas from the Snowgrass range to get you started. Although our range is not exactly huge, I have discovered that there are so many uses for some of our items.

For starters, the Snowgrass range was originally designed with children in mind, but adults (including myself) have just fallen in love with the neck gaiters and the beanies too! I haven’t taken my Lipstick Pink Neck Gaiter off since winter started. It is so perfectly warm and not bulky that I forget that I am wearing it when I come in from the cold. Customers ranging from the littlies to grannies, and from the likes of little bikers to big cyclists, and walkers and hikers have bought them and loved them.

The beanies, as well, have proven hugely popular with adults too. We now have X Large beanies available for those that find the Large just a little too snug. They are the perfect gift for a runner as merino wool regulates your heat, and they scrunch down to very little so can easily be stuffed in a pocket while you are out pounding the footpaths.

Also, they are ideal for any cyclist, big or small, as they fit nicely under a helmet. And not just bike helmets either, they are great under a ski helmet or motorbike helmet or any helmet you can think of, even a builders hard hat!

The beanies are all flat seamed too so they do not irritate the head and are therefore ideal for an elderly parent or grandparent, or even someone who has ill health as there is nothing like falling asleep with a nice warm beanie on and not being irritated by it.

So if the person you are buying for is a runner, cyclist, motor biker, walker, hillwalker, hiker, skier, has an outdoor occupation, or generally just loves being outdoors (like we do!) or just needs a little bit more warmth to make them comfortable then a beanie or a neck gaiter is a great and original gift for them.

So that’s a few ideas for the big kids in your lives, and we haven’t even covered the little guys yet.

To give the child in your life - whether that be your own child, grandchild, niece, nephew or godchild - a gift of a long sleeved Snowgrass Top shows you really care for them. It gives me great comfort knowing that my 3 boys are wearing a Snowgrass Merino wool top right next to their skin every single day. So when they are out in the yard at school, or out kicking a football in the back garden or on their bikes or hiking up a hill, they have that layer of warmth to keep them snug. It also means they don’t have to bulk up to go outside as well, and we all know how much kids hate wearing bulky things!

Match a long sleeved top off with a pair of leggings and not only do you have a full base layer for skiing but also a fabulous pyjama combination as well for those extra chilly nights.

And of course, the beanies and neck gaiters were originally designed with children in mind. They are lightweight, warm and comfy – what else could you ask for!

I hope I have given you a few original ideas to help you out on your Christmas shopping.

Myself and all the team here at Snowgrass wish you a very Happy Christmas to you and your family. It is a wonderful and special time of the year so enjoy it :-)

Merry Christmas,

Helen xx
