Boot Bananas Winter Sports Moisture Absorbers £15/30

Boot bananas might be something of a double-edged gift, but their value is immense for those with slightly pongy feet (and their chalet partners). Simply bung them into a well-used ski boot or gloves, and they’ll work their magic, absorbing water and odour. Also available in a cheaper, non-winter version (£15 below).

Anker Soundcore Motion 300 £75

A travel speaker has to be lightweight, portable but deliver quality sound, a combination that this 30W stereo unit achieves with ease. The combination of Auto-adjust EQ and SmartTune (which adjusts the EQ depending on the unit’s orientation), along with a customisable 9-Band Pro EQ gives total control over your tunes when you want it, and effortless quality when you just want to kick back. There’s the 13-hour playback time too, as well as an IPX7 waterproof rating so a little melting spindrift won’t spoil the entertainment.

Columbia Infinity Trail Balaclava £25

For the skier that has everything, this is one they almost definitely won’t have. Essentially a techno-take on the standard balaclava, this is lined with reflective Omni-Heat Infinity making it the ultimate in bling headwear, as well as being enormously warm for the weight.

Anker Soundcore Sport X10 Headphones £63

A good set of headphones is a modern necessity, whether you’re travelling, training or on the slopes, a go-anywhere, do anything setup like the Soundcore Sport X10 is a winner. The ear hooks keep them secure even in more energetic moments, and the IPX7-rating fends off damp across the board. A substantial 32 Hours playtime and top-quality microphones give you excellent call clarity too.

Quiksilver Mission Kids' Mittens £40

Kids are particularly susceptible to the cold, and also very susceptible to losing their gloves and mittens, so a spare pair (or new pair) is a no-brainer. These Quiksilver mitts are fully-featured, as well as properly warm, making them a perfect gift for the younger boarder or skier. With WarmFlight insulation, a waterproof faux leather palm and elasticated leash, as well as being touch screen compatible, there’s little to complain about here.

Jack Wolfskin Gleely Ins Hooded Vest K £65

This kids gilet not only looks cute, but also keeps the core temperature up without restricting the arms, two things that are essential when playing in the cold. The insulation is recycled, and the water-repellent and windproof face fabric is both practical and attractive. There’s also a hood to really boost the warmth on colder days.
