Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat… time for office parties, late nights, and making lists of presents as long as your arm.
But with time running out there are a few of you out there that haven’t actually done any Christmas shopping yet isn’t there… yes, thought so. If you are struggling for ideas, ski clothes always make a great present so you might like to put some Sweaty Betty on your list.
Sweaty Betty was founded in 1998 by Tamara Hill-Norton and she describes her activewear ranges as being designed by women for women.
The Softshell Ski Jacket is made from Primaloft and four-way stretch fabric and this is complemented by Astro Softshell salopettes which have durable abrasion resistant panels, perfect for preventing wear and tear from snow boots.
Seamless base layers are not usually designed to be easy on the eye but, dare I say it, Sweaty Betty’s are actually quite attractive. Plus, there is a Union Flag base layer to make you feel patriotic! Then there is the jumper that simply says ‘ski jumper’. If you like skiing and you like jumpers you can’t go far wrong.
And don’t worry if Santa doesn’t get the message, you can always treat yourself to some Sweaty Betty. It is Christmas after all.
