Louisa Kiwana, writer and powerhouse of the blog Afroblush (a great read it must be said) and a bit of a style & fashion nut such as myself is very keen on her gifts and accessories and very kindly contacted me with the idea of showcasing a few of her suggestions for great gifts to treat that cycle lover in the family or pedal adoring friend you might be wanting to spoil at the biggest event this December, Christmas.

Geekery Videogame t-shirt £13.31

Videogame Pixel Bicycle T-shirt

The 8-bit exerciser on the Rush Hour Tee is doing a lot of things that we don‘t recommend. First, he’s not wearing a helmet. For shame. Second, he’s going against traffic, which, as anyone can tell you, is silly. Third, he’s an 8-bit rider on a full resolution road, and that always results in a sensory overload that can be dangerous for any commuter.

A big thank you to Louisa who came up with this post. Learn more about her here at her blog Afroblush.


My personal favourite is the orange Bikechain Bracelet. Very Discerning.
