Best Gifts for the Snowboarder 2022
Let’s be honest – the ultimate gift for the snowboarder in your life is a bluebird powder day. But if you’re not able to deliver that (it’s ok, we get it) this list of Gifts for the Snowboarder will give you the next best ideas for all the snowboarders in your life.
All of the products listed in this ultimate list of gifts for the snowboarder are things that myself and other Tales of a Mountain Mama team members have personally tested and recommend. We have gift ideas for everyone including toddlers and kids, teens, women, men, backcountry purists and resort enthusiasts.
Most snowboarders would be stoked with big ticket items like boards, outerwear or lift tickets, but I assure you that giving a great gift does not have to break the bank. Some of my favorite options like this Dakine multitool cost just around $10.
Some years it might be a smaller item, such as socks, while other years we give our children a new helmet or snowboard. Evaluate the interests and needs of the snowboarders in your life, and get inspired by our list!

Gifts for the Snowboarding Family
Burton Gig 70L Duffel Bag
Having organized gear means less time in the parking lot and more time shredding. This duffel bag fits a TON of stuff. Last winter my family of four went on a weekend snowboard trip and we fit boots, helmets, goggles and mittens for four people in this one bag.
Custom Trail Sign
These custom trails from Etsy are so cool. Customize a sign with names of trails that are special to your family, or name a trail after your family – like Toal’s Trail.
DryGuy Boot & Glove Dryer
This basic yet durable boot and glove dryer holds up to two pairs of boots or gloves. We use ours every day all winter long and it’s been going strong for three years. There is a heat or an air dry setting as well as a timer to ensure you don’t melt your gear.
The perfect snowboard storage solution. Gravity Grabbers mount to any surface and use an anti-slip, gravity locking design to keep your board off the ground. Available in single and multi-packs.
Many resorts offer “mountain money” cards. These reloadable cards can be used like a credit card for things like hot chocolate, snacks, lessons, on-mountain photos and more!
Gifts for the Snowboarders: Toddler
Snowboarding is for the entire family – even the youngest members! Help get them started with these gear suggestions.

Thumbless mittens, but with a shape that allows for hand movement. We also love that they are soft on the outside which makes them more pliable in the cold too. Plus, the designs are super cute!
Toddler’s Burton Riglet Snowboard
This hard plastic board with a built-in Riglet Reel is perfect for pulling your little one around the house, the yard or the neighborhood – snow or no snow! Best of all kids will play with this for years and years.

Gifts for the Snowboarder: Kids
Kids this age love fun stuff, and aren’t always as picky about brands or specific items as they will be later. It is a great age to find gifts for.
Anon Tracker 2.0 Goggles
These goggles fit small faces really well, have a sticky rubber strip on the inside of the strap so they don’t fall off helmets, come in lots of fun colors, and they are compatible with the Anon MFI magnetic facemask.
Burton 2L One Piece Snowsuit
Give the gift of staying warm, dry and looking cool! This is one of the only “big kid” one piece suits available on the market and for years this is all my kids have worn for cold Jackson Hole snowboarding days.
Burton Kids GORE-TEX Gloves
Right around 2nd grade my son started begging for gloves. Of course I argued that mittens were warmer, then finally caved and bought these. After a full season of use I can honestly say they are just as warm and dry as any mittens my son has worn! Bonus points: They come with a lifetime warranty.
Lego City Ski and Snowboard Resort
Keep your shredders inspired off the hill, and busy for days, with this awesome 800 piece ski resort set.
Gifts for the Snowboarder: Teens and Tweens
Teens and tweens are at such a fun age. They are ready to rock in the outdoors, and often have more definite interests and individual style. This age is exciting to give gifts for.
Anon M4 Goggles
The M4’s are available in the M4S (for small to medium faces) and a low bridge fit. Many teens choose to wear their helmets over their goggles and the M4 Snapback goggles eliminate pressure points for a comfy fit.
Apple Air Tag & Adhesive Pelican Case
Sadly, snowboard theft is a major problem at many resorts, or sometimes kids just misplace their gear! This tracking device is the size of a dime and fits inside the waterproof case, then sticks to your snowboard. Track your snowboard easily from your iPhone.
Help keep those (expensive) goggle lenses in pristine condition and look cool in the lift lines or the boot pack!
Smartwool Base Layer Hoodie
Teens will love the hood feature and thumb holes and parents will love the merino wool warmth and odor resistance (cuz let’s face it – teens can be stinky after a day of snowboarding!).
Gifts for the Snowboarder: Women
At the very top of my wish list is a day to shred pow without my darling kids in tow. But if it has to fit underneath the tree, these are my next top choices!
Burton Avalon Bib Snowpant
The Avalon Bib is a bib for every body! It comes in lengths and a range of sizes, in GORE-TEX, 2L and stretch, not to mention about ten different colors. In fact I love these bibs so much I have two pairs! If you haven’t yet tried on bib snowpants – DO IT! I made the switch a few years ago and I’ll never go back
Iksplor Merino Legging
These leggings are soft, very stretchy and have a wide unrestricting waistband. They keep you warm but not too warm, and thanks to the merino wool – dry.
Are you a breastfeeding snowboarder mama? If so, Iksplor makes an awesome merino wool nursing top that we highly recommend. Click here to check out the Iksplorer Nursing Top.

Sun Bum Daily Sunscreen Moisturizer
Protect your skin from the elements without the greasy feel. This sunscreen also smells great and doesn’t run into your eyes. It’s also small enough to fit into a chest pocket for mid-day reapplications.
Gifts for the Snowboarder: Men
Burton [ak] GORE-TEX Guide Glove
These gloves are warm and waterproof thanks to leather and GORE-TEX without being bulky. My husband wears these gloves and a new pair is at the top of his gift list.
East Street Archives Book
Bring the joy of snowboarding right to your coffee table with this photography book from Gary Lund.
East Street Archives delivers a raw look and emotional journey from Gary about East Coast snowboarding during the golden era of riding in the 1990’s. There are many never-seen-before riding and lifestyle images, captured on 35mm film throughout the mountains and streets of the USA and Canada.
ONE Supreme Snowboard Tuning Kit
This kit has everything you need to do a full tune on your snowboard including files, brushes, scrapers, wax and even the iron.

This lightweight feeling baselayer hoodie is half merino wool and half polyester. It’s super stretchy and keeps you warm and dry on cold resort days or on the bootpack.
Stocking Stuffers for Snowboarders

Rub on wax perfect for increasing your speed for a couple of runs. Fits in your pocket, rub on and go.

Beanies are the perfect stocking stuffer for the snowboarder (or three) on your list and this timeless style can be worn alone or underneath a helmet on the slopes.
Dakine Multi Tool
Looking for a great gift for $10? This is one of those snowboard essentials – everyone should carry one in their pack or pocket. It has a couple of screwdriver heads and wrenches and fits in your palm.
HotHands Hand & Foot Warmers
Keep hands and feet warm on sub zero days with these convenient hand warmers. I stick one to my phone to keep the battery from freezing, too.
Phoozy Phone Insulator
Keep your phone battery from dying from the cold with this insulated pocket bag.
Platypus Flexible Water Bottle
It can be hard to drink enough water when you’re out snowboarding, but with this collapsible water bottle that fits in your pocket, keeping hydrated is a little easier.
Gifts for the Snowboarder: Backcountry Adventurer
Burton [ak] Dispatcher 18L Backpack
This pack is perfect daypack for snowboarders. It has room for a beacon, probe, shovel, helmet, extra layers and snacks. There are straps to attach a board to the pack as well for the bootpacker.
BCA Dozer Avalanche Shovel
Backcountry snowboarders will love this shovel because it’s lightweight, has a t-gril, fully breaks down and lies flat inside the backpack – leaving room for other stuff.
BCA Tracker Avalanche Transceiver
This avalanche transceiver is consistently rated as one of the best due to its streamlined, high performance simplicity. It comes with batteries and a harness.
G3 Speed Probe Avalanche Probe
A simple, lightweight lower cost avalanche probe that is perfect for fitting in smaller daypacks.
Big Ticket Items for Snowboarders
Burton Feelgood Camber Snowboard
This board does it all – floats pow, shreds chop, is no stranger to air time and carves like a dream. It’s no wonder it’s been around for decades and it the board of choice for so many female snowboard legends.
Franco Snowshapes Custom Snowboard
These snowboards are handmade in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and are 100% customizable down to the materials and shape of the board.
Avalanche Education Course
If the person on your gift list plans to get into backcountry snowboarding, an avalanche education course is a must and AIARE is the leading organization, offering courses all over the country.
Snowboard Lesson or Camp
Taking a lesson from a professional instructor is something I recommend for everyone, but it can be so expensive. This is a great gift and there are so many options, from lessons to camps such as women’s camps, freestyle camps and camps for teens and backcountry-specific camps.
