It's holiday season once again! Shopping for gifts can be stressful, from second-guessing your gift choices to outrageous lines to visiting multiple stores in search of that last elusive item, how about you just say, “No!” to that this year? Our team at Board Blazers has compiled an insane list of gifts that will satisfy skaters from novice to the most hard-core. Everything you see here can be ordered from the comfort of your couch cushion and shipped directly to you. We’ve done the work so that you don’t have to! Sit back, relax, and prepare to knock out your holiday shopping!
Staying hydrated is essential, and the Hydro Flask will keep your thirst at bay in style. Its double wall technology keeps hot drinks hot for up to 6 hours, and chilled drinks stay cold for up to 24 hours! The classic gray color goes with everything, and the wide-mouth top ensures easy drinking on the go at the skatepark.
This little gadget is one of the most ingenious things we’ve seen this year, and it comes at an incredibly accessible price point! This four pack of rubberized twist ties will keep anything snug, from the top of an open snack bag to your tangled earphone cords. Having a few on hand is always a good idea!
If that earphone cord is a continual struggle, why not level up to a set of wireless earbuds? This set is excellent quality and less than 1/3 the price of a pair of Apple Airpods. With their slick black charging case, you can keep your music pumping for hours of shredding!
While we hope you never find yourself in a sketchy skate situation, we know that it’s bound to happen once in a while. Keep yourself ultra safe by carrying this slim whistle on your person as you shred. If disaster should strike and you find yourself in a place where help may not be able to see you, pull out this crazy-loud whistle, and someone is sure to come to your aid.
If you want to stay safe and ride in style, a set or two of these LED underglow skateboarding lights is a must on your holiday gift list. With a rainbow of color options from Outrageous Orange to Boss Black Light (we’re digging Lightning Lime right now), you can’t go wrong. See and be seen with the raddest skateboard accessory out there.
Whenever our team discusses our favorite skate gear, this ALWAYS comes up. An all in one skate tool is essential for every skater’s bag. You have to keep your board up and running while you’re shredding, and this inexpensive and handy tool ensures just that. With attachments that fit nearly every single type of screw on every board, you’ll never find yourself broken down at the skatepark.
For those frozen winter months when skating is just a summer dream, a subscription to Thrasher magazine will keep the skate love alive. The ultimate in skateboarding news and trends, every skater should subscribe!
Finding yourself tabled from gear issues is the very worst. Have some extra of all your gear on hand, including bearings. These Spitfire ones are inexpensive, but top quality. They’re decently quiet and work for any board (plus a variety of other sporting accessories). Make sure you have a few spare sets in your arsenal!
Everybody needs grip tape, and there are a million options out there. With so many choices, why have plain black or gray? Our favorite ones lately have small cutouts like this grizzly one. They’re not so big that you’ll lose your footing, but big enough to make a style statement. The smoke marbling on this one is extra fly!
It goes without saying (we hope) that every skater needs a skateboard and buying one online can feel intimidating. But this complete setup is a surefire win. With an ultra-high rating and over 200 positive reviews, you can’t go wrong adding this board to your rotation.
Skates socks are synonymous with skate culture. These iconic mid-calf tube socks come in every color, design, and brand imaginable. You have a plethora of choices, but we’re digging this version from HUF as an alternative to the text-heavy socks repped by other brands.
HUF is having a major moment in skate fashion right now. Brands come and go in popularity as we all know, and HUF is the brand of the moment. Keep your skate wardrobe current by investing in this classic HUF brand black hoodie. With excellent quality and a timeless design, you’ll keep this one in your wardrobe for a while to come.
Shoes are such a personal choice, but we don’t know a skater who doesn’t love this classic slip on by Van’s. Worn by everyone from pro skaters to the dreaded posers, these slides embody the sport of skateboarding. Any skater would be thrilled to find these in their gift pile!
A weighty investment, the Go Pro HERO 7 will revolutionize the way you document your skateboarding adventures. The hyper smooth video stabilization makes your clips as smooth as butter. And the Time Warp video feature creates sick time-lapse videos you’ll want to watch again and again. We know it’s pricey, but it’s a sure-fire win for any gift giver!
