The Best Gift Ideas For The Last Minute Shopper

December always seems to fly by, expecially when the ski season has just kicked off. When the days are filled with chasing pow and lift lines, there’s little room for anything else. But before you know it, it’s that holiday time of year. The lights are up, trees are being decorated, and carols are being sung. If you’re like us, this means the usual panic associated with last minute shopping for gifts. Let us guess, you probably just want to get it over with and get back on the slopes or into the eggnog. So to lighten your load and maximize efficiency, we’ve made a list of the best gift ideas for the last minute shopper, AKA you, me and every ski bum in Whistler!

For Mom

A S’WELL WATERBOTTLE

S’Well Water Bottles aren’t just any old water bottle, they are a hydration accessory. What’s more, by purchasing a bottle, you are helping support S’wells mission to rid the world of plastic water bottles. Mom would just love that!

For Dad

A NIXON WATCH

Sleek, stylish and timeless, a Nixon Watch is a mixture of luxury and functionality. Dear dad will love to remind you how late you are for a holiday dinner or picking up Grandma but then you can just remind him who bought the watch!

For The Significant Other

THE LATEST OUTERWEAR

Buying for your partner can be tough but not at McCoo’s. Opt for the latest technology in outerwear and you can’t go wrong. Then, the next time you’re on the slopes together, you can avoid going in early to warm up or dry off. Actually, might be better to get yourself a new jacket and pants too while you’re at it!

For Siblings

GOPRO

You really can’t go wrong with the latest action-cam technology. And besides, you can always swipe it or ‘borrow’ from your brother or sister.

For The Grandparents

A GOGGLESOC

Grandparents are all about practicality and the Gogglesoc is just that.  A gogglesoc is a protective cover for your goggles so that they don’t get scratched when you aren’t wearing them. Hands down, your grandparents will praise your responsible present choice!

Secret Santa

STANCE SOCKS

Stance Socks are all about individuality so grab a pair that best suits your colleague. Yes, there is everything from Yoda to cats so everyone can be accommodated, even Janice from accounting.

Finding that perfect gift doesn’t have to be overwhelming with our list for the last minute shopper. And, if you’re just starting your Christmas shopping, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Breathe, go forth, and shop. You got this. And once it’s all done, enjoy the holidays as you should. Merry Christmas from McCoo’s!
