A gift guide - bike stuff that people wish for

Author: admin / Comments: 0

If you want to give someone a bicycle-related gift this holiday season that is actually useful on a daily basis, this guide is for you.

Christmas lights on a bicycle – bike gift for the holidays
  • No-budget gifts
  • If you’ve got wrenching skills, offer to fix your friend’s basic bike problems, like flat tires or out-of-whack derailleurs. Find a shop that provides for quality bike parts and start tuning up the bike in a way your friend will not be able to recognize it. He or she will definitely appreciate the effort that ends in a brand new bike and it also qualifies for a very special gift that only somebody who truly cares would offer to provide for. This is my favorite type of gift when it comes to cycling lovers.

  • The little things
  • Things that may appear insignificant for some are actually a big deal for bike riders. So, looking for practical accessories for your friends and cousins – who ride the bike – may prove to be a good choice. Make sure to find out what they are in need of and just get practical. Check for new bike helmets, all kinds of bike bags for different types of necessities, locks, lubes, dog leash, bandanas, gloves, caps, shoe covers, arm warmers, warms wool socks, etc.
    Also, it’s difficult to have too many bike lights. They’re always getting lost or loaned to a friend to ride home from a late dinner party. There’s an unbelievable variety out there you can choose from.

    If you are getting a gift for someone who regularly uses a cable lock to “secure” their bicycle, the most beneficial gift you can give them is the gift of keeping their bicycle un-stolen — with a far more theft-proof u-lock.

  • Get your fix
  • Do the people you want to surprise have a bike that they might ride more often if the squeaks and bumps were ironed out? Well, then you can always opt to give them a gift certificate to a local bike shop for a tune-up.

  • The gift of adventure
  • Do you dream of going on a bike tour with your best friend or somebody significant in your life? You could try to convince them by bringing up Barbara Savage’s classic travelogue - “Miles from Nowhere” - the exciting story of a two-year around-the-world bike tour Savage took with her husband. Who knows, they might just love the idea and go for it…

  • Support the cause
  • Give your favorite biker friend a membership with a local bicycle advocacy organization or activist group. Or you could make a donation in your friend’s name to his or her favorite bike blogger.

  • The ultimate bike-related gift – How about a bike?
  • In case you know for sure that your close one really wishes for a bike he can ride on with, than purchasing a bike as a present might be the best idea you can come up with. All you need to do is find out specific details he or she would enjoy for the bike and you are good to go – the success of your gift will be a certain thing.

  • Bikes for kids
  • If it’s for kids you are looking for a present, then keep in mind that bikes are always a good gift choice for kids. The many benefits of cycling make it a thoughtful present and makes kids learn healthy life patterns from young ages. Don’t forget that when kids are involved, colors have a great role to play in choosing the perfect bike.

The bottom line is that there are a great variety of bike gift items you can choose from that will make bike enthusiasts be really glad to have you as a friend.
