The Christmas season and birthdays are always around the corner and maybe you have a loved one, son, daughter, friend or even the stranger that you saw three days ago, who has this amazing passion for skateboarding. Anyway, you don't want to spend too much energy and time thinking about the perfect present for them (we know you don’t), but don’t fret! SHITⓇ is here to help you with some ideas that we believe will make any skateboarder very happy.
Skateboard Decks and Shoes
This might sound obvious, but the truth is that these two things are indispensable for any skateboarder. If you are going to gift a new deck it is important to take into consideration some aspects like the height of the skateboarder and the shoe size, since there are different sizes of decks. However, there are different types of skateboard decks and if you feel lost about this concern we invite you to read our guide on how to choose the right skateboard deck.
Something that also may help skateboarders is really good skate shoes/kicks to help them ride anywhere, anytime, make sure they have a grippy rubber outsole and reinforcements.
Portable Skateboarding Ramps for Limitless Tricks
This could be one of the perfect presents for any crazy skateboarder: portable ramps are like amusement parks for skaters. There are many types of skateboard ramps on the market, but every skater has their preferences. So you should be aware of your skateboarders preferences, some enjoy more doing tricks in one kind of specific ramps than others. Anyway, all ramps are perfect to release the skateboarders creativity.
Skateboard Clothing are Great Gifts for Skateboarders
This might sound like a regular gift, but there are many specialized brands that sell clothes designed for skateboarders. And of course, everybody needs something to wear so this is never going to be a bad gift, just make sure that the clothing fits with the skateboarder own style. We have some really nice T-shirts and beanies in our store that looks great with anything.
Well, if you are looking for something smaller but that stills great as a gift, you can acquire some awesome stickers to pimp up somebodys skateboard. You can find our classic SHITⓇ UV foiled stickers in our store.
We know you want to be the Santa of the family, but don’t be the typical boring and bad Santa that gives everyone what they actually wants themselves. We hope you enjoyed this guide and found some good gift ideas for skateboarders. Please let us know what you are going to give to your skateboarder relative on our social networks or in a comment below.
