  1. The Arcade Ranger Slim Adventure Belt is a slim belt that fits the narrow belt loops of 3.2cm or less, and it is one size fits most, up to 101.6cm waist.

An interesting way to give a belt as a gift would be to wrap it around the recipient's favourite bottled or cased beverage, like a ribbon. Alternatively, you could use the belt as a ribbon on a box or parcel.

Smartwool Merino Wool Bike SocksSocks

Socks make for a great gift idea and the Laundry Sock Monster ensures that the sock receiver will be super excited. The Urban Gear offers a wide variety of socks for runners, alpinists, or business people that you might have on your gift list. Unless you know their foot size, it's best to opt for Medium size for women and Large size for men. The Urban Gear team lives in Smartwool and XTM premium socks.


Smartwool socks are made of Merino Wool and designed with specific technology for longevity, comfort, and support. These socks are superior and worth gifting because Merino wool naturally wicks moisture, is quick-drying, odour-resistant and thermoregulating. The socks are designed for activity and can feature Shred Shield, Virtually Seamless toes, 4 Degree™ elite fit, or Indestructawool™.

  1. Smartwool No-Show socks come in a variety of colours and styles, and they make great gifts for any shoe wearer who doesn't want their socks to show or who suffers from foot odour that comes from wearing no socks.
  2. The Run, Bike, and Hike socks come in both men's and women's fits. These are designed with adventurers in mind and feature target padding, thicknesses, colours, and sock heights depending on the activity.
  3. The Everyday range of Smartwool socks are perfect for the office, lounging around the house, and of course, everyday wear!

Smartwool has a huge range to choose from, so check out our curated collection here. We are happy to assist with your shopping, so don't hesitate to click the chat button in the bottom right to talk with our team on the Gold Coast, QLD today.


XTM socks have the alpinist on your list covered with either the XTM Sochi ski socks or XTM Half Pipe Slope snowboard socks. These socks are designed specifically to cushion pressure points in the ski or snowboard boot and not be bulky elsewhere. Spoil the skier or snowboarder on your holiday gift list this year.

Get creative with sock gifts by rolling them up and putting them inside water bottles or mugs. If you have a game-loving family, roll the socks up, put them inside balloons, blow them up, and make it a contest of who can pop their balloon the fastest without using anything sharp.
