Christmas Gift Guide

Here in Australia, it’s coming up to Christmas time, and while we know not everyone celebrates it, (and if they do, not necessarily on the same day!), one thing we can all agree on is giving gifts to other people because you like them is a pretty cool thing to do. So if you’re thinking of doing that for any reason at all, be it cultural, spiritual, or simply because it’s about time they got some new clothes to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors in, you might want to check out our Top Five Gift Ideas.


Simply use code FESTIVE and receive a AUD$20 credit against any purchase of AUD$100 or more on full priced stock on our online store.
To have your gifts express delivered in time for Christmas, order before Friday 14th of December!

 

1. Socks & Undies. 

OK, sure, we know Socks and Undies have been a go-to gift since the year dot, but these are no ordinary socks and undies. These are made from the finest of fine, premium Australian Merino wool. So they’re super comfy whether you’re wearing them for high performance in the outdoors, or just keeping it natural every day. Shop Men's and Women's undies. 

 

 

2. The all purpose T-Shirt.  

Giving one of these T-shirts is like giving two gifts in one. They’re versatile enough to be worn casually for natural comfort, but they’re also perfect for when a high performance, odour-resistant, thermo regulating, moisture wicking, breathable T-shirt is the order of the day. Or night. Choose something from the lightest weight Universal Range and you’ll be set for everything from the heat of summer, through to all sorts of travel adventures. Grab a fitted Altitude Tee for that athletic look, or an Ultra Tee for a more durable fabric and a whole lot of warmth and comfort. 

 

3. Go long. 

Looking for something with a little more coverage and warmth than one of our Ts? Go long! The Altitude Range features the athletic, ‘contact fit’ and includes a classic crew and a super versatile zip that offers even more temperature regulation. The Universal Range is a more casual fit but still delivers all the performance you’d expect from our exclusive MicroMerino® fabrics. Soft. Comfortable. Awesome. For something in between the contact and casual fit, there’s the sporty fit of the Ultra crew.  

 

4. Mid & Outer Layers. 

If you want to go over and above, get them something they can wear over and above. These Mid Layers and Hoodies will be one of the best gifts ever. If we have a personal favourite around ioHQ, it’s The Pinnacle. This is one of our best ever mid layers, looks super smart just wearing it around on a cool day, but delivers an insane level of warmth and comfort out in the elements. A crazy good gift idea.

5. Keeping your head warm. 

No point getting your layers on and having a cold head, right? These accessories make gift giving super easy. The 100% Merino wool reversible beanie feels as good as it looks, the Neck Tube is the ultimate versatile accessory and can be worn in more ways than you can shake a stick at, and our Skull Cap is lightweight, but amazing, and fits perfectly under a helmet if you’re skiing, boarding or riding. The Skull Cap comes in two sizes because it’s nice and fitted, and designed to be worn snug, so you’ll need to work out if your loved one has a regular head or a massive one. But our Beanies and Neck Tubes are one size fits all making it a real no-brainer for a stocking stuffer. 

 

6. One-Size-Fits-All eGift Cards.

Of course, if you’re still not sure what to buy them, there’s always a one-size-fits-all eGiftCard. That way there’s no worries about what style or colour they’ll like best, or what size will be just right for them, they can buy their own perfect gift! Also a great option if you’re running out of time and need a gift right now. Available in AUD$20, AUD$50, AUD$100 or AUD$200 amounts, so whether you love them a little or a lot, there’s one that just right for you too!

Fabric Guide

While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability. 

It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.

Ethically Made. Ethically Sourced. Perfectly Natural.
