Ermahgerd, sner! These gifts will keep you from straying off-piste when buying for skiers

Snow lovers may be dreaming of a White Christmas, but it's the pistes they're hankering for.

Fill their Christmas stocking with these prezzies to keep them toasty and teched-up on the slopes and mountainsides.

Jeremy Jones – Further DVD & Blu-ray (£22)

Sit back and enjoy some of the world's most extreme snowboarding antics from Jeremy Jones, one of the pioneers of big mountain riding. Its stunning vistas, insane descents and a large dose of the great outdoors might even rouse you from your post-turkey stupor and have you booking your next trip to the snow.

Hestra Army Leather Heli Ski 3-Finger (£95)

Cold fingers can quickly suck the fun out of a mountain session, and the cost of buying sub-standard gloves that fall apart every year soon adds up.

These snug, 'three-finger' gloves are made from three-layer polyamide fabric with a goat leather palm that'll last a lifetime. They also feature elasticated 'handcuffs' to stop you dropping them off the chairlift. Again.

Icebreaker Men's Bodyfit 200 Oasis L/S Crew (£60)

You've probably heard it before, but staying warm on the mountain is all about having lots of thin layers rather than one really thick one. This long sleeve base layer top is the perfect start for an alpine uniform. It's made from merino wool, which is surprisingly warm and (just as important) amazingly stink-proof.
