2023 has been a year of ups and downs. Whether you’ve loved it or would rather forget it, as the year draws to an end, we get to focus on what matters most: the people in our lives. Some of those people are surfers, individuals who get their thrills from paddling out into the ocean and riding waves. But the question for you, dear gift buyer, is what do surfers want for Christmas?

Christmas Gifts for Men
As the festive season rolls in, it’s time to celebrate the surfers in our lives with thoughtfulness and style. Here are 11 of our favorite gift options for male surfers. We’ve even color-coordinated the options so you can mix and match apparel and accessories. We really love the Outerknown Sur Snap Hoodie, and while it might be on the pricier side, it will last a decade or more. We know; we wear their gear ourselves.
Our selection for women is all about cruising with comfort and style. We love love love the Outerknown women’s blanket shirt. Once, these were only available for the boys, but now we can all benefit from this fabulous material and warmth. Also, they last for—well—it seems like forever based on the blanket shirt we’ve been testing since 2019.
If you care about the planet, then this list contains only items from companies that have proven their green credentials. Choosing a gift card—item #8— is a great way to give the surfer in your life flexibility to choose apparel without giving cash (that could be squandered). Those XCEL boardshorts at #6 are especially nice and all you need is your surfer giftees waist size!
Groms, gremmies, little dudes — they get the most excited about this time of year. We’ve got toys and clothing for the boys and girls in your surfing life. Thank you for all the lifts to the beach mum and dad! To encourage skill development get #9—these balance boards are amazing for times when the waves are not pumping.
Being on a budget doesn’t mean buying plastic junk. You can still get surfers something they’ll find super useful and maybe even inspiring. See the book, which is #10 below. If you don’t usually know what to buy, then they’ll be shocked by your in-depth knowledge of the best surf gifts this year. You actually can’t go wrong with the #7 surf kit. It’s our pleasure to help you on this shopping quest!
