10 Best Gifts for Snowboarders Under $30
Do you have a snowboarder on your holiday gift list? I do, and I've been busy shopping around for a few cool gifts under $30.
Here's a look at what I found:
1. Neck Gaiter Scarf
The Dakine Kendall Neck Gaiter Scarf makes a fantastic gift. I love the full fleece lining and jersey knit exterior. You can purchase one online through major sports retailers for less than $22.
2. Snowboarding Socks
Thorlo Thermolite Extreme Snowboarding Socks will keep the toes of those on your gift list toasty warm. I especially like the extra padding in the foot area and the ultra comfy wicking material. You can buy six pairs for less than $20 online.
3. Snowboarding Goggles
A pair of Oakley O-Frame MX Goggles is sure to be valued by the snowboarders on your holiday gift list. The anti-fog, scratch and impact resistant lens coupled with a flexible frame and moisture wicking materials is sure to please. Best of all, I found a pair online for under $27.
4. Snowboarding Goggles Replacement Lens
If there is one thing snowboarders go through often, it is replacement lenses for their goggles. Why not pick up an Oakley O-Frame MX Blue Replacement Lens or two? Each one will cost you in the neighborhood of $8 online.
5. Snowboarding Gloves
Are kids on your holiday list? You might want to consider giving them a pair of REI Snow Ridge Gloves. They'll appreciate the fabric on the thumbs and the custom fit afforded by the nylon wrist straps and fleece cuffs. You'll also appreciate the $23 online price tag.
6. Stomp Pads
7. Tune Kit
A DS 7007 Essential Tune Kit that contains speed paste, a wax scrapper, polish pad, wax and repair kit would make a terrific gift. Most outdoor sports retailers sell it for under $30.
8. Mini Wax Iron
Have a DIY snowboarder on your list? Why not consider buying a DS 7500 Mini Wax Iron online for $30, so they can tune their own snowboards?
9. Snowboard Storage Bag
Even though the diehards on your list won't need it until spring, a DS 8390 Grunge Bag to store their snowboard in would hit the mark. The $20 online price tag makes it even better.
10. Wrist Guards
Pro-Tec IPS Wrist Guards make a wonderful gift for the safety conscious snowboarder. You can find a pair online for $20.
My children are snowboarders and I have a history of buying snowboarding related gifts.
