Christmas Gift Ideas

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015


It seems to come around quicker and quicker every year but it is indeed getting to that time again! Never fear though as we at the Black Sheep have lots in stock this Christmas for your present needs! Whether your treating that special someone, have a skateboard mad teenager or just after treating yourself, we’re sure you’ll be able to find the right thing from us! Have a look at just a few of the Christmas gift ideas that are below that will hopefully give you some ideas!


Complete Skateboards

Everybody who works here for us will well remember that first ever set-up they got, probably down to the last detail! It’s one of those moments in life that the memory just sticks with you! If someone your buying for has seemed to have taken interest, talked about, or tried skating once or twice then this is your chance to become the best relative ever! If your buying for someone who is just starting out we recommend one of our ready made completes that we stock from various different companies. The advantage of buying one of these is mainly the components ( ie trucks, wheels and bearings ) that come with the completes will be much better than those that come with one that’s bought from a non skateboard retailer, sports shop or toy shop. It may seem the cheaper option at first but wont be in the long run! There cheaper for a reason and will probably need to be replaced in a short amount of time! Once your starter board has been pushed to its limits you can always upgrade and buy new components. We can also make up custom completes and we’re always on hand to offer help or advice! You can see all of our complete skateboards here >



Darkstar Complete Skateboard



If it is just the deck your after then we have more than enough choice! With a variety of hundreds of boards from well over forty different companies – including our own shop boards at a very reasonable £29.95! All shapes and sizes to cater for everybody’s needs. There’s no better feeling than a fresh deck with fresh pop if you’ve been pushing around a soggy chipped plank for a while! Remember all decks come with free grip and will brighten up that persons Christmas! See all the decks that we have in stock now >
