Valentines day is a difficult one, some people don’t by gifts or know how much you should spend on gifts. For me it’s super hard because my boyfriend is really hard to buy for and I used all ideas for birthday and christmas gifts! Here are a few of my top picks from Subvert Boardstore that would make nice gifts so if your struggling for idea’s I hope this helps!
If your other half likes filming snowboard or skate edits then they will love this Death Lens kit, it comes with an iPhone case that the lens screws onto and you instantly have a wide angle view meaning you’ll never miss a trick. Sometimes it’s a pain to remember to bring your GoPro with you but your pretty much guaranteed to have your phone with you so it makes sense to use it.
These Stance Star Wars socks are awesome! They are every day socks so perfect for any lad not just snowboarders and the range of characters is great. I got these as a Christmas gift and they went down a treat. Stance socks are always a winner!
These Vans in-ear headphones come in a really cool waffle print zip case and you can chose from red, blue or black. Perfect for keeping in your backpack and they on’t get tangled into everything else if you keep them in the case.
Thrasher did a collab with HUF to create this cool 6 panel hat, it’s adjustable too so don’t worry about getting the wrong size!
Subvert have a huge range of backpacks to choose from with snowboard and skate specific ones too. This Nike SB one is a good choice, with loads of compartment sot keep stuff organised and comfy padded straps it’s comfy to wear too.
Neff have a big range of different style watches in loads of different colours from budget to high end so have a look on the site to see them all. This one is £21.99 so you can wear it skating or snowboarding and not worry too much about damaging it. It is waterproof to 5m too which is handy when your on the mountain or get caught out in the rain.
Pat Moore is not only a stylish snowboarder but he has good taste in clothing too! This is his riding shirt which is flannel with with cosy sherpa lining in it so it’s great for snowboarding indoors or skating on a cold winter day.
As Subvert is a skate shop you won’t be surprised to hear that they stock the best decks and accessories. The staff are really helpful too so if your not sure what your looking for just ask them and they are more than happy to point you in the right direction. The Castleford store even has a skate park so you could buy a gift card for some skate time.
Having a waxing iron is really handy to have, I bought one as a gift for my boyfriend a few years ago and he still uses it now! This Demon one is perfect because it’s small enough to pack when you go on trips and you can even change the voltage depending on which country you visit so it works everywhere. Even if you only snowboard indoors it’s worth waxing your board every other week to keep it running fast.
