With the Holiday Season already nipping at our heels, many of us are starting to enter panic mode. Shopping malls and retail stores are starting to mirror more of the post-apocalyptic chaos of a Mad-Max world than that of a lovely gift shopping experience. To top things off, if you are shopping for that special person in your life but don’t know what to get them, it can just add layers of stress to the already daunting task. But the idea of gift giving isn’t supposed to be stressful or forced, it’s supposed to be out of the goodness of our hearts! However, knowing what exactly to give loved one or friend for Christmas can make the act of gift giving much more enjoyable. Just think of the look on their faces when they open up that brand new…uhhhh…what were you supposed to get them again?
Luckily, if you have a skateboarder in your home, we’ve got you covered! Skateboarders are easy to shop for and here is a top 10 lift of cool skateboard gift ideas!

10. Socks

We know what you might be thinking, “Socks?! I hated getting socks as kid!” Yeah, we know, but I bet you didn’t get a cool pair of skateboard socks as a gift! There is a wide selection of stylish socks to choose from and even some made specifically for skateboarding. Stance, Burton, Vans, Toy Machine, Active, and other brands make for cool gifts for skateboarders. Trust!

9. Water Bottles

Another weird sounding idea but hear me out. The tech behind these latest water bottles is actually pretty cool. Hydroflask and Corksicle water bottles can keep whatever liquids you put in there cold up to 24 hours! This is a perfect idea for the skateboarder on the go that needs to stay hydrated! They come in a variety of cool colors and sizes to fit the hydration needs of any skateboarder out there!

8. Sunglasses

These make another great gift for any skater. Sunglasses have always been linked to style and that’s what skateboarding is all about. There are a ton of great brands like Happy Hour, Wonderland, Electric, Glassy, and many others that will fit whatever style your skater is looking for.

7. Bumbags

Bumbags are hot items! Not only are they stylish and in fashion right now, but they are useful too. Skaters don’t like to carry much in their pockets while they skate so bumbags make for a cool present for any skateboarder. They also come in a variety of styles and colors!

6. Wallets

Like the bumbag, wallets are a necessity when your skateboarder is on the go. We’ve gone a long way from the basic and boring wallets of our ancestors. Now they come in array a unique styles, colors, and materials. They fit any event! Whether it’s you’re at the park skating or need to clean up for a more formal event, Active Ride Shop has a large selection of stylish wallets that make for awesome Christmas presents for all skaters!

5. GoPro

This is a great gift for any skater that loves the film! Compact and easy to use, GoPro is a great tool to capture skateboarding in any situation. They’re durable and made to withstand the toughest of conditions. They’re available in a number of different styles, so you’ll find one to match your budget.

4. Hoodies

Every skateboarder loves a cool hoodie! That’s way that make cool gifts! They’re classic and never go out of fashion. Pick one up from brands like Spitfire, Thrasher, Nike SB, or any of your skater’s favorite brands. Hoodies are a must for any skater’s wardrobe and Active has a huge selection to choose from.

3. Hats & Beanies

Another classic! Top your skateboarder’s fit with a stylish beanie from any of their favorite skate brands. Beanies are a great because they aren’t just something you wear for cold weather. They fit all sorts of fashion styles and can be worn in all kinds of weather conditions. Skateboarding has always been on the forefront of fashion and I can say that beanies are right on up there. They come in number of different styles, sizes, colors, and materials but you really can’t go wrong. Did I mention they make stocking stuffers? They’re not very expensive either. Beanies make for some of the best presents for the skateboarder in your life!

2. Footwear

Shoes are probably one of the best Christmas gifts of all time! The great thing about skate shoes is that a skater is always in need of them. Skate shoes work for so many different occasions, like I said about beanies, skateboard shoes are one of the hottest trends right now in fashion. Big time rappers have even credited skate shoes as inspiration for their own designs! Aside from the fashion of it all, footwear is a skateboard necessity. Almost as necessary as a…

1. Skateboard

This is the absolute best gift you can get a skateboarder for Christmas. I know it isn’t much of a surprise but if you really don’t know what to get a skater, a skateboard is the answer. I can tell you, there is almost no better feeling than tearing open that gift wrap to a fresh board. You don’t have to go all out and buy the complete skateboard, just the deck itself would be awesome enough. If you’re unsure what brand of board to buy, check out some shop decks. Active Ride Shop has a great selection of affordable Active shop decks with cool and unique graphics. If you’re looking for a complete skateboard, Active also has a wide selection of Pre-Built Completes that make the shopping experience easy. Just remember the grip!
