13 Secret Santa Gift Ideas for Cyclists Under £20
It’s getting towards that time of year again. The most wonderful time of the year, they say, unless you’re scrambling about for a last-minute Secret Santa cyclist present. That old chestnut can really dampen your spirits.
In all seriousness, though, if you’re stuck shopping for someone who brings their two wheels to work with them every day in the Secret Santa, cycling gifts are in abundance, so you needn’t worry.
Below, we’ll list 13 great cheap Christmas presents for cyclists – all for less than £20. It’s a wide range of items, too; not just bike-related gifts, but unique gifts for cyclists and some nice, funny cycling gifts as well. Let’s dive in:
Yep. Bike balls.
Big glowing red balls dangling around.
Other road users won’t miss you with these.
Kicking off our list of the best Secret Santa gifts for cyclists is this extremely handy bike mount for your phone from TruActive. With this on your bicycle, there’ll be no danger of your phone rattling loose and falling off. It should fit phones of virtually any size, too.
Another of the useful gifts for cycling enthusiasts is this bike seat, available in blue or black. The seat itself is made of thick gel to seriously enhance your comfort, while the cover is waterproof and will fit most saddles, too.
If you’re looking for something a bit different to the norm in terms of Secret Santa presents for cyclists, then why not buy this personalised, easy to customise bike keychain for just £15.33?
Alternatively, if you’re buying for someone particularly passionate about more adventurous cycles, then here’s a great idea: Mike Carter’s book ‘One Man and His Bike’, telling of his life-changing ride across the coast of Britain. Available as a paperback for £7.17, or for Kindle for a mere £2.49.
For practical, cheap Christmas gifts for cyclists, these shoe covers are perfect. Made from 100 per cent PVC materials, they offer protection from all angles, can be folded up into your bag after use easily, and their zippered covered makes them simple to put on and take off.
For something nice and simple, the neat, glossy cycling coaster will cost you just £4.99 – great if you’re buying for someone as passionate about tea and coffee as they are about their bike.
Or, if those particular coasters don’t take your fancy, how about this set of four vintage hand-drawn wooden ones with unique illustrations for just a tiny bit extra?
What about something a bit more niche and arty? This hand-drawn elephant bicycle watercolour painting is exactly that, which individual print hand-signed and dated, too. It would no doubt make a welcome addition to one of the walls on a cyclist’s house.
Another in the more practical category, these non-slip grip cycling gloves, either in black or grey, are brilliant for enabling cyclists to use their phones during rides; this will especially come in handy during cold weather – i.e. just after Christmas.
A gift which is as eco-friendly as it is helpful, these USB rechargeable bike lights will cost you only £12.99 but could make the world of difference from a financial point of view to the recipient, who will no longer have to spend money on new batteries for his own bicycle lights.
A cheap and cheerful gift, this hand-printed bicycle T-shirt, made from 100 per cent cotton, is another worthy shout if you’re running low on present ideas or, again, just want something a bit different to typical cycling gifts.
Finally, if you’d prefer funny Secret Santa gifts for cyclists, then look no further than this classic bicycle horn. Not only is it a more humorous present, but helpful, too – horns are arguably an even better tool than a bell to inform pedestrians of your whereabouts, given their greater volume of noise.
