If they don't have any hip protector, or any sort of body padding you can get that sort of thing for about 40.

buy him a couple of these, they are perfect to keep zipped up in a pocket until you need to get the feeling back in your fingers and endlessly reusable. If you are out in the cold for any length of time it's really comforting to know you can have some warmth at the touch of a button.

you could have just argos'd it like everyone else.... or gone into a winter sports shop and asked someone "what can i get for my snowboarder mate with 60 sheet?". instead of coming to us, who all have gifts to think of, and families to care for, work to go to, car to pay for on top of a mountain of other concerns.

Mittens that have individual fore-finger and thumb bits. Mittens are way warmer than gloves but with the fore-finger and thumb free there not as annoying as normal mitts. My best purchase for sure.

Arnette glasses are going for just shy of 60 an they're well good.

Terrible idea for a snowboarder though.

nope

mittens are fairly common for snowboarders. I know someone with a nice pair of leather burton mitts. (but as with all burton goods he paid a lot for them).

A nice pair of gloves is a good suggestion though.

OK, now the snowboarder is attended to, I too have a problem.

We have the dreaded secret-santa going at work & I've drawn our friendly neighbourhood pervy musician to get something for.

All strokes of genius are truly welcome. Maximum £10 but up to a fiver would be good for me. Also, as suggested on another board, a box of shit or anything to do with fish is not acceptable - too much like his day-job!

He does have a sense of humour thankfully, so go-on, do your worst! :D
