For any budget, this is what’s on our Christmas wish list this year…

Intro Session in the X-Ten Gym – $30

If you really want to step it up buy them a ten session drop in concession card for $100
Skinnies Sunscreen – From $18.99
Want to be the practical gift giver, but don’t want to be cliche and give away socks? (actually we have some lovely ski socks that would also make a great gift too!). Then go for some Skinnies! you only need a pea sized amount of this stuff to cover your whole face, you’ll use five times less than standard sunscreen. Water proof for up to four hours and doesn’t freeze at low temperatures, so it’s perfect for all the snow bunnies in your life! Coming in 35ml + 100ml tubes they’re the perfect stocking stuffer.
Stickers – From $2
Everyone from five to 35 seems to love stickers. They’re great for covering up that pink butterfly design on your sons’ second hand skis that he’s been complaining about for the last season, to give your worn out gear a revamp and your new killer gear a bit more pop, or to rep your fave brands (like us!) on your skate deck, helmet, laptop, car etc…. Cheap as chips, these should be in all your stockings this year. We’ve got a variety of sizes in our vinyl cut X-Ten Stickers, some bad ass Bandit stickers, and a range of other brands too. We’ve even organised them into sport specific sticker packs if you don’t want to think about it. From $2
Been wanting to get your loved one some killer hardware but not sure what they’ll want? Easy, we do gift cards, so pop in and grab one, then bring them back in the new year to get kitted out in our new season winter stock. If you still want something to wrap up, pair it with a Bandit or some Skinnies.
