Gifts for cyclists: Gift ideas to cater to all budgets

Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas, or just an excuse to show someone you care, there are plenty of gift ideas out there that will go down well with your cycling-fanatic friend, relative or better half would love. However, if you’re not a cyclist yourself, it’s easy to fall into the trap of buying into the many novelty gifts for cyclists that, though they may draw a smile, will ultimately end up collecting dust. If you want to buy the cyclist in your life something they can actually use, and get a lot of enjoyment out of, we’ve compiled this handy list to help you.

Here are our favourite gifts for cyclists, from budget-friendly crowd-pleasers to the absolute crème de la crème of premium products (if you’re feeling especially generous).

ELITE Eroica 600 Aluminum-Silver Water Bottle

A very stylish bottle for any heritage-loving cyclist

If you’re buying a gift for a cyclist with a love of all things steel and titanium, then they will appreciate this incredibly stylish Eroica bottle from Elite Cycling. It got a look and feel that harks back to a classic era of cycling, and while it functions as a water bottle it is also a work of art in its own right. The bottle is hand-made from aluminium with a satin finish, and includes a cork stopper held on with string for a very ‘heritage’ look and feel.

A useful gift for a home mechanic

If you know someone who likes to do all their own bike maintenance at home, why not treat them to this heavy-duty mechanic’s apron from Park Tool? It has all the pockets they need to keep the most essential tools to hand while carrying out a tricky fix, and is made with durable cotton canvas that stands the test of time.

Airshot Tubeless Tyre Inflator 1.15L

A very useful gift for cyclists that use tubeless tyres

This would be especially useful if you’re buying for a cyclocross racer or gravel rider, since many of them favour tubeless tyres for their practicality, though tubeless is hugely popular among cyclists of all creeds. This tubeless inflator from Airshot is a simple and effective tool that also does its bit for the environment. Instead of working their way through a pack of single-use metal canisters, they can refill the Airshot with a track pump, and use it to quickly inflate their tyres when needed.
