Any ideas involving skiing? my bf is becoming a ski patroler tomorrow, and i'm trying to think of christmas presents.
My friend's a ski instructor, and a nice warm toque that fits under her helmet is always a hit with her. You could also look into glove liners (if you knit, in something soft and light, like an alpaca sock yarn) neck warmers, a ski bag (a HUGE project, I know), warm handknit socks... Someone on the bath and beauty board had posted some balm that she made to protect skin from the wind. My friend buys something like that and swears by it.
As a patroller, does he need to carry first aid supplies with him? Maybe you could make him some sort of a backpack to hold his stuff. You could fill it with "keep warm" items like those self-heating glove warmers and hot chocolate mix.
Thanks so much! I don't think he's so into knitted things. But those are great ideas. Maybe I'll get him something warm. Yeah, he does have to carry supplies with him, but he just bought this big fancy vest to hold it all. What is a toque?
