Christmas Gift Ideas for Skateboarders from Cardiff Skateboard Club - - CSC, Cardiff Skateboard Club - UK Skate Shop

Socks

Socks are an absolutely timeless stocking filler and we've got a wide range of skate socks to help tailor this classic gift towards the skater in your life. We've got premium quality socks from top skate brands like Polar, Last Resort, Sour Solution, Bronze 56k and Alcohol Blanket so no matter what they're into, we've got you covered.

Skate Books and Magazines

I used to love getting various annuals for Christmas as a kid and while you can't get a skateboard annual yet (do they even exist anymore?), we do have a range of skateboard books to fill that hole. We've got the best-selling 'My First Skateboard' by legendary pro skater, Karl Watson, for the younger readers or coffee table essentials like the Quasi 'Simulation' book or Jenkem Vol. 3 for more mature audiences. Alternatively, we've also got a load of magazines including everyone's favourite, Thrasher Magazine, or Closer Magazine for the more intellectual side of things.

Skate DVDs

If reading isn't their thing, why not treat them to a skate video to obsess over instead? We've got DVD copies (and even a very nostalgic VHS) of some of the finest skate videos of the modern age, including the recent 'Static VI' which comes with a bangin' 48-page booklet in both DVD and VHS format, or Hockey's 2-disc special featuring their most recent video, 'Hockey X', and its predecessor, 'Hockey III'. Call me old-fashioned but you just can't beat a physical copy.

Skate Accessories

If you're looking for something a bit smaller, we've got a load of novelty accessories that would not only bring some serious Christmas cheer but would actually fit inside a stocking. Whether it's keychains from skate brands like Thrasher, Butter Goods, Sci-Fi Fantasy or Quasi to help personalise their keys or Cash Only Marker Pens to help their unleash their creativity, we've got a wide selection of skate accessories that would make perfect Christmas gifts for skaters.

Caffeine and Krooks

Buying for a skater and coffee enthusiast? Luckily for you we've got both those boxes covered with Caffeine and Krooks coffee, one of the world's only skater-owned coffee brands! Bringing you ethically-sourced coffee that's roasted right here in Cardiff, we've got Caffeine and Krooks coffee in both Ground or Whole Bean varieties to suit any preference. The perfect Christmas gift for any skaters who love their coffee!

Ripcare Shoe Repair

The perfect example of a Christmas gift that gives back to you, Ripcare Shoe Repair is a perfect stocking filler for skateboarders that's sure to save you money in the long run if you're always getting roped into buying new skate shoes. This humble tube of gloop (yes, that is the professional term) can help massively extend the life of your shoes by covering holes or providing an extra layer of protection to prevent them getting worn through. It's a win-win.

CSC Vintage

Buying for a skater dad or someone with a taste for the nostalgic? We've got a load of vintage skate gear over on CSC Vintage that would make perfect Christmas gifts for skateboarders who appreciate their history, whether or not they were there to appreciate it at the time. In particular, we've got retro Blueprint wallets and Elwood belts that would make perfect stocking fillers for anyone who appreciates skate memorabilia.

CSC Gift Voucher

Alternatively, if all else fails and you really don't know what to get, you can always play it extra safe and just opt for one of our CSC gift vouchers. We offer a range of gift vouchers from £5 to £100 so you can show them exactly how much they're worth to you. As an added bonus, the higher value vouchers also come with a free gift, ranging from a free sticker pack with the £10 voucher to a free T-shirt with the £100 voucher so they'll still have something to open on the day.
