The Holiday Season and Ski Season are coming into full swing. When you aim to surprise your hardcore skiers and ski bums with the right gift, you must remember that skiing is not just a sport; it’s a winter lifestyle. Skiers even have a language all their own.
Our sports and tech editors at Stylelujo.com reviewed numerous ski brands and hand-selected the chosen few to be featured here for our viewers. Just to let you know, ski gear and ski upgrades are expensive. But if you can’t afford to gift such high-ticket items, I suggest you gather a few people to pitch in and surprise the ski bum with a gift to cherish.
We suggest you understand the performance benefits and how the item performs in the snow, on the mountain, and over time. And even though some of the styles are on-trend, remember that performance always comes first to the skier.
And creative aesthetics give big rewards for the people on your list who are more après ski culture.
Here are our favorites – just in time for the holidays.
MSRP: $549.00 or $699.00 (Titanium)

Envisioned for mountain getaways or cold days in the city, the Gucci Après-Ski selection comprises a wardrobe of sporty styles in vibrant hues, with matching sets that can also be styled separately, as well as reinterpretations of iconic handbags. The selection also includes ski masks defined by the House’s signature codes. Fitted for glossy mountain peaks, with sporty details and technical features, the frames – available in a variety of different colors – are decorated with the name of the House, while the Gucci Web strap appears at the back. Bright guccissima lenses complete many of the styles. On-piste, off-piste, or simply in the resorts, from snowy peaks to city streets, the masks expand perspectives on the surrounding realities, seamlessly connecting what is seen and how one is seen

Sweet Protection Connor Rig -Reflect Goggles.
The Connor is the latest edition in our goggle line that stands out with its true frameless design. This model features a 2.8mm toric sculpted lens with our unique proprietary lens technology; RIG.

The strap is very close to the lens of the goggles, making sure you get a seamless fit with your helmet.
