Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful. Too bad you still have places to go, because it’s going to snow, going to snow, going to snow. And that means that someone is going to have to go outside and run the snowblower so you can get the car out. Make life easier on the person that has to venture out into the frozen, snowy mess with the Snowblower.com Holiday Gift Guide with gift ideas to make blowing out the driveway a whole lot easier
One of the top causes of injuries in the winter months is the old slip-and-fall. Running the snowblower can be rough because the person doing so is exposed to all kinds of snow and ice. That’s why it is a good idea to wear some traction-aides on the boots. The YakTrax Pros are about as good as it gets. They use the weight of the step to dig into the ice with hundreds of tiny traction grabbers, making them good for any kind of winter activity and multi-directional to boot.
Wood N’ Stream Endeavor Boots
First thing in the morning during a big storm, the last thing anyone wants to do is get out of a nice warm bed and go out and blow the driveway clean. Warm boots that are comfortable as well as supportive are a must. There isn’t much better than the Wood N’ Stream Endeavor. With 2,440 grams of Thinsulate Platinum insulation and a reflective heat control, these boots will do the job and last for years.
Who says that to be warm, you don’t want to look good, too? There is not a more classic and functional winter hat out there than the original Stormy Kromer. Originating and still produced in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Kromer is hand made from premium wool and lined with soft cotton for comfort.
Another common injury associated with snowblowers happens when people reach in to clear snow from the chute. This usually happens when the chute clean-out tool that comes with most snowblowers is lost. Help keep your loved one safe and with all ten fingers intact with a new one from MTD. It’s cheap insurance against a nasty injury.
When I started writing the Snowblower.com Holiday Gift Guide out, my wife saw that I was including a new Husqvarna snowblower. She snorted at me and asked if that wasn’t the equivalent of a husband buying his wife a new vacuum. “Merry Christmas, honey, now get to work.” Not the case at all. It’s a task that needs to be done, and who wants to fool around with an old, temperamental snowblower when a brand-new Husqvarna is so easy to get? The Husqvarna ST224 is a two-stage, 24-inch snow-blowing beast has electric start and enough power to get the job done quickly. Hint, hint, honey…
