    17. Physio Cream

    Physio cream is an underestimated gift for snowboarders but essential to keep them going all day long. Snowboarders' muscles can get quite sore and seize up after a few days of carving it up. Thus, physio cream will help relax and repair their tight muscles for a long snow season.
