So we thought we may offer you a public service and give you some last minute shopping ideas for your loved ones and even yourself.
This is not a review of the products as most of these have been or will be posted for review on this site.
Its more an opportunity to email the link to a loved one or leave open on your desktop as a major hint !

How often do you see photos of yourself out on the trails and then they are left stored on a hard drive or FB page never to see the light of day again. Well the Apple TV has been a huge bonus to allow you to watch your pics and listen to music at the same time all through your HD TV. It brings an up to date version of the old slide show. In addition, the ability to watch all those Kilian YouTube and Vimeo videos is all accessible through the high quality user interface we all come to know and love from Apple.
What would Christmas be without socks ? Extremely light and exceptionally invigorating, the Compressport T. Sock acts both on posture hold and activation of microcirculation. Its wide and ergonomic toe piece, the stimulation of the arch of the foot, the 3D dots and the multi-compressive fibres will give you aggression and comfort during effort. The 3D dots also offer you a second-to-none shock-proof/breathing combination namely at the malleolus and Achilles tendon. Water is not stored in the protective cushions which guarantees you dry feet. The silver ion treatment is a bonus against perspiration and the spreading of bacteria. A sock guaranteed for 2 years.

Rudy Project RYDON Sunnies
Famous for their endless guarantee – you scratch em they replace em – the Rydon ImpactX are the most versatile glasses we have worn. Ideal for all day on the trails and in low light as the photochromic lenses react quickly enough as you leave the wide open trails and enter the deep dark canyons. They double up as a great pair of sunnies when riding your bike or paddling or sailing. Comfort fit and worth the investment as they end up being the only shades you wear.
