You might have already sifted through our ‘super post’ of 51 great cycling-related gifts, featuring plenty of brilliant cycling accessories, clothes, decorations, lights, books, tools and more.

But it’s almost the most wonderful time of the year now. So, with Christmas, just around the corner, it’s about time we put together a selection of the best Secret Santa present ideas for cyclists.

Picture the scene. You’re sitting at your (presumably now virtual) workspace only to discover you’re buying for the one colleague who (presumably used to) commute in and out of work every day. 

Or perhaps it’s a friend or relative you just can’t visualise without seeing them perched on their bike saddle. You don’t have to break the bank, of course, but what really are the best Secret Santa gifts for cyclists that can cost you less than, say, £20?

Quite a few would make great, affordable Secret Santa cycling presents, in fact. And plenty of these are bicycle gifts, UK riders or otherwise, that your cyclist surely won’t own, even if they think they’ve already received every cycling-related present known to man.

Xmas Present Ideas

Below, you’ll find our definitive list of the best Secret Santa gift ideas for cyclists. Not all of these cycle gifts are bike-related, either; some are wonderfully unique, some are more light-hearted novelty presents, some are cheap and cheerful – we could all do with some light relief after the hellish year that 2020 has been, after all.
