Here in Australia it’s coming up to Christmas time, and while we know not everyone celebrates it, (and if they do, not necessarily on the same day!), one thing we can all agree on is giving gifts to other people because you like them is a pretty cool thing to do. So if you’re thinking of doing that for any reason at all, be it cultural, spiritual, or simply because it’s about time they got some new clothes to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors in, you might want to check out our Top Five Gift Ideas.

Socks & Undies.
OK, sure, we know socks and undies have been a go-to gift since the year dot, but these are no ordinary socks and undies. These are made from the finest of fine, premium Australian Merino wool. So they’re super comfy whether you’re wearing them for high performance in the outdoors, or just keeping it natural every day.
The all purpose T-Shirt.
Giving one of these T-shirts is like giving two gifts in one. They’re versatile enough to be worn casually for natural comfort, but they’re also perfect for when a high performance, odor-resistant, thermo regulating, moisture wicking, breathable T-shirt is the order of the day. Or night. Choose something from the lightest weight Keystone range and you’ll be set for everything from the heat of summer, through to all sorts of travel adventures. Grab a fitted Altitude T for that athletic look, or a True North T for a deluxe fabric and a whole lot of warmth and comfort.
Looking for something with a little more coverage and warmth than one of our Ts? Go long! The Altitude range features the athletic, ‘contact fit’ and includes a classic crew and a super versatile zip that offers even more temperature regulation. The Keystone range is a more casual fit but still delivers all the performance you’d expect from our exclusive MicroMerino® fabrics. Soft. Comfortable. Awesome.
Mid & Outer Layers.
If you want to go over and above, get them something they can wear over and above. These mid layers, jackets and hoodies will be one of the best gifts ever. If we have a personal favourite around ioHQ, it’s The Pinnacle. This is one of our best ever mid layers, looks super smart just wearing it around on a cool day, but delivers an insane level of warmth and comfort out in the elements. A crazy good gift idea.
Keep your head warm.
No point getting your layers on and having a cold head, right? These accessories make gift giving super easy. The 100% Merino wool reversible beanie feels as good as it looks, the necktube is the ultimate versatile accessory and can be worn in more ways than you can shake a stick at, and our brand new skull cap is lightweight, but amazing, and fits perfectly under a helmet if you’re skiing, boarding or riding. The skull cap comes in two sizes because it’s nice and fitted, and designed to be worn snug, so you’ll need to work out if your loved one has a regular head or a massive one. But the beanie and necktube are one size fits all making it a real no-brainer for a stocking stuffer.
