As the silly season gets into full swing, now’s a great time to start on that gift list. If you’ve got a friend or family member that commutes by bike, or lives and breathes cycling, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a great guide on gift ideas for your special cyclist.
“Oh I’ve got everything I need”
We all have that one person who’s difficult to buy for. They have everything they need, are vague on what they want, or for some other reason, you’re stuck on what to get them. Why not get them something interesting and practical – like the Bar-ista coffee transporter – the perfect addition to any commuter or coffee fan’s bike. This fits most travel coffee mugs, so they can enjoy their beverage anytime, anywhere.
For a special touch, the personalised figurine is sure to be a hit. Have a personal message included, or send a photo to have the figurine’s kit painted just like that of your loved one. This unique gift is a great idea for that cyclist with everything, and will surely be cherished.
“I’ve just started cycling”
For someone who’s just gotten into the sport, cycles for recreation or fitness, or cycles to work; they may have the basic essentials – so some help from you will be greatly appreciated. The Bikeshelf is an attractive, modern way to save space and easily store a bike. Whether it’s used in a shed, on a wall or elsewhere, this is a handy place to not only store the bike, but an integrated shelf is perfect for keeping keys, locks, tools and helmet in one place too.
If safety is more of your concern (especially if the rider bikes after dark), the safety vest or helmet ID will help the recipient be seen and safe while riding in the dark or other low-visibility conditions.
“Check out my new…”
As technology progresses, it can be hard to keep up with the newest upgrades and latest models. Somehow, some people do – and they need somewhere safe to stow their tech devices while cycling. Gift the mini tablet sling case or regular tablet padded sling case to keep their devices snug and dry on the move. Made from Green Guru’s upcycled materials, these cases are protective, good-looking and yet environmentally friendly.
Smaller devices don’t get left out either, the Handleband smartphone mount is a quick and easy way to mount almost any smartphone for optimal viewing, and the Must Stash top tube bag stores phones, keys and cards and can also be used as a portable wallet or purse. It’s a win-win!
“Cycling is my life”
Whether it’s professionally or just for fun, the hard-out cycling fan will love a gift from All4Cycling and Green Guru. Help protect their belongings with the Cyclepath, a 22 litre backpack that looks great while keeping everything inside it safe and dry. Add a puncture repair kit – a cyclist can never have too many and it’s helpful to have them at work, home and abroad so they’re never without one.
If they can’t convey their love for cycling enough, accessories from our online shop can be worn and displayed with pride, and there’s everything from necklaces and bracelets, to belts, wallets, zipper pulls and key chains. Perfect!
Merry Christmas from everyone at All4Cycling, and best of luck on the gift-hunting front. Remember – the special people in your life will appreciate your efforts, it’s the thought that counts!
