When shopping for the holiday season, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the sprawling selection from some online retailers. After all, online shopping is supposed to supplant the “going to the mall” process for many of us these days.
On the other hand, certain retailers understand the task at hand. One of our favorite brands, Huckberry, is arguably the best retail curator in our space, filling its web store with hundreds (not tens of thousands) of fantastic products — but not just any fantastic products. The experts behind the selection process ensure that, especially this time of year, shopping can be fun again. For those who need some quick inspiration with only a few days left to buy, we’ve put together a guide to our favorite last-minute gifts from Huckberry.
Aged & Ore Whiskey Tasting Flight
For the whiskey enthusiast in your life, this Whiskey Tasting Flight set from Aged & Ore comes with four fluted crystal glasses. Securely fitted into an aluminum serving tray, each glass features a laser-etched letter to correspond with the silicone bottle tags, whether you’re doing blind tastings or an event for your whiskey club. To make pouring easier, the widest part of the glass also denotes 0.5oz, which is the ideal serving size when trying multiple expressions.
MMX Vancouver Marshmallow Crossbow
Get the big kid in your life this Marshmallow Crossbow from MMX Vancouver, because there’s nothing better to do with marshmallows — besides roasting them — than shooting them at your friends and loved ones. Capable of firing up to 60ft, this crossbow can be adjusted for mallows of different grades of softness.
Vans Ultrarange EXO Hi MTE-1
The Ultrarange are adventure-ready Vans that prove the skateboard brand is more than capable of making shoes for any outdoor excursion. These sneakers are built with EXO MTE-1 outsoles that can go from the hills to the sidewalk, a water-resistant HydroGuard Wrap over the toe, water-repellant uppers, Zonal Primaloft insulation for weather versatility, and UltraCush EVA midsoles for comfort and moisture regulation.
Revbalance 101 V2
Few things strengthen your core like a quality balance board, and without straining your neck like traditional crunches and situps. The updated Revbalance 101 is super easy to operate and has adjustable difficulty for any user so you can always remain upright no matter what your experience level. It’s also a great device to help you work on your skills for any boarding sports.

Gift an instant loadout with this EDC Kit from Craighill in partnership with Huckberry, featuring a stainless steel keyring, a 3.5-inch stainless steel pen with a bronze cap, a tiny 2.5” task knife made from 12C27 steel with a flipping mechanism, and a key capsule constructed from precision-machined anodized aluminum for storing pills and mints when needed.
RRL Slim Fit Selvedge Denim Jeans
Channel your inner-Steve McQueen with these Slim Fit Selvedge Denim Jeans from Ralph Lauren’s Western-inspired sub-label, RRL. Constructed with 100% cotton, these 16oz American selvedge jeans ooze with a vintage Americana aesthetic like the ones popular in the 1940s. In order to nail the vintage style, the selvedge was woven onto old Draper shuttle looms. The fit here is slim, especially in the legs, with a medium-low rise.
Shinola The Runwell Desk Clock
Few brands exude vintage Americana like Shinola. Now you can have one of the Detroit-based brand’s timepieces right on your desk. Debuting nearly a decade ago, the Runwell was Shinola’s first wristwatch and now the clock version features a continuous-sweep quartz movement inside the 6.38-inch black zinc case, which rests atop the oak wood stand.
Aarke Carbonator Pro
Not just a stylish appliance, Aarke’s Carbonator Pro is a stainless steel device that can get you sparkling water with ease, whether you like some fizz in your H2O or you want to craft your own soda pop. Use just one hand to operate this sleek, Swedish-engineered machine, which is compatible with most CO2 tanks.
The James Brand The Kline Pocket Knife
Recently, the James Brand unveiled its first-ever USA-made folder, the Kline knife, featuring a stonewash-finished drop point CPM MagnaCut stainless steel blade and 4.5” Micarta handle in OD green with a slide lock for security. This is a perfect EDC knife, stretching 4.5” when closed and featuring dual-stud thumb openers for quick deployment.
