You can curse the slippery driving and icy walking a snowfall causes. Or, you can enjoy the unique gifts of a four-season climate and find a way to have fun in the snow. Here are some ideas – for outdoors and indoors – to make your winter more enjoyable.
Extreme sports enthusiasts often love both snowboarding and mountain biking. This unique gift for snow-loving shredders attaches to a bicycle’s front tire to combine both sports for joy rides down the slopes and smooth pedaling on snow-covered trails. Riders who crave an even bigger adrenaline rush can clip a second board on the rear wheel for double the glide down the slopes.
If it’s too cold to be outdoors where you are (or too warm to snow), these puffy, plush snowballs satisfy the urge to hurl frozen handfuls without actual wet, messy snow. They are soft to the touch (and to Mom’s collection of display plates), but also have a satisfying “crunch” texture when squeezed, much like the real thing.
Incidentally, after the outdoor fun is done, you might want to have one of these just inside the door. This is the low-profile doormat that holds 12 pints of water per square yard, keeping entryways free of melting snow, providing you with the unique gift of clean, dry floors in the foulest weather.
