Birling the Holiday Gift Guide

December is almost here, and with it comes the holiday season. For many, this can be a stressful time where running errands in preparation for family gatherings seem endless. Purchasing presents to share with loved ones should not add to that stress. It should be a happy occasion where you channel your thoughtfulness into a selection of gifts for the people you care most about. Gifts come from the heart. To kick-start your brain into “holiday mode”, here are a few gift suggestions for that special someone on your holiday shopping list. If you have any questions at all, or if there is any way that we could help personalize your gifts, do not hesitate to contact us.
For The Skater On Your List
Skaters are the easiest to shop for. They go through gear constantly! Whether it be decks, trucks, wheels or bearings – a skater will rejoice to receive any as gifts. Figure out their specific preference (brand, deck width, wheel size - preferably without them knowing) for an extra dash of thoughtfulness. If you’re looking to introduce skateboarding to someone, click here to buy their first complete.
For the Shoe Lover on Your List
Although skaters do go through shoes quickly, you do not have to be a skater to appreciate our shoe selection. Practical gifts make the best gifts, and what is more practical than comfortable shoes! New Balance shoes are a staff favorite when it comes to comfort and back support. They make great skate shoes as well! As do Vans, Last Resort, Emerica, Lakai and State to name a few. If the shoe lover on your list is one who embraces winter, check out these Vans MTE winter boots or Redwings!
For the Book Worm on Your List
In a world of ever growing electronic distractions and social media obsessions, books have never been more valuable. They offer a peaceful break in your day by inviting you to read or simply flip through and enjoy some images. All of us here at Birling are big believers in the power of books. Check out our selection of available books by clicking here. Jenkem Vol 2, Canthius Issue 8, and My First Skateboard (for children) are among our favorite picks.
For The Streetwear Lover on Your List
Are you shopping for someone who loves streetwear? We’ve got the goods! The latest and greatest from the most hype brands out there – Dime, Alltimers, Pop Trading, Raised by Wolves, Stan Ray and more. We’ve got sweaters, T shirts, pants, toques, shorts and jackets – something for everyone!
Birling Holiday Stocking Stuffers
Don’t forget about the stockings! The shop is loaded with smaller items that fit into stockings and will not disappoint. For a skater – hardware, wax, bearings, tools, bushings or even riser pads. For everyone else – soap, sunglasses, pins, hair products, mugs, and wallets. Stockings are the best!
