Whether you're shopping for a loved one's birthday present, or you've drawn an awkward colleague in the office Secret Santa, finding the perfect gift can be a bit of a minefield. If this person happens to be a cyclist, then you’re in luck! Why not take some inspiration from our ideas below.
VEL 9 Piece Hex Key Set
Every cyclist needs a selection of good quality tools for at-home maintenance, and the VEL 9 piece Hex Key Set is just that. With the hex bits ranging from 1.5mm to 10mm, this set will allow you to perform a range of bike repairs and adjustments. Each tool is constructed from tough 6150 Chromium-Vanadium steel so the durability of the tools should never be in question.
Squirt Long Lasting Dry Chain Lube
Not only will Squirt Long Lasting Dry Chain Lube keep everything running smoothly, but it'll also extend the miles you can ride before re-application. A win-win for most riders. As a wax emulsion, it coats the chain, reducing resistance, and excess wax is shed, along with dust and dirt, so there'll be no grinding paste that clogs the chain.
Thanks to this formula, Squirt is effective in both road cycling and mountain biking scenarios and across all conditions. Gift this Squirt Lube to a cyclist in your life and although it may not give their chain the shiny, just cleaned look of traditional oils, it may just gift them a few extra watts.
VEL Sweat Guard
Whether indoor training happens throughout the year or just during the winter months, it's important to keep your bike protected. Sweat can be damaging if it frequently gets onto or into your bike, corroding delicate parts. This is where the VEL Sweat Guard comes in. It runs from the handlebar to the seatpost to absorb perspiration, keeping your bike in pristine condition.
Universal Colours Mono Cotton Cycling Cap
The perfect finishing touch, we are pretty sure any cyclist will love this super soft, super stylish Universal Colours Mono Cotton Cycling Cap. Universal Colours' attention to detail and use of environmentally-conscious manufacturing methods and fabrics are sure to please, while the stylish design is timeless and ideal to be worn whatever the season.
Muc-Off X-3 Dirty Chain Cleaner Machine
If you know someone who likes to keep their bike in tip-top condition, the Muc-Off X-3 Dirty Chain Cleaner Machine is ideal. Making bringing a chain back to its former glory a far easier task, a heavy-duty, deep cleaning machine as well as a bottle of Muc-Off Drivetrain Cleaner is included in this kit. The design of the machine means the grimiest, greasiest chain will be shining again in no time.
Bontrager Flare RT 2 Rear Light
Make sure your loved ones are lit up and safe on the roads with the Bontrager Flare RT 2 Rear Light. This rear bike light brings exceptional visibility day and night thanks to its maximum 90-lumen output, which in this mode lasts for six hours - plenty of juice for even a long winter ride. You can even connect the light to compatible Garmin and Bontrager ANT+ devices so battery status and controls pop up on your screen for easy access.
Ideal to compliment with a front light, the Flare RT 2 can easily be attached and switched between a wide range of bikes using the Quick Connect bracket, so there's no excuse not to stay illuminated on or off-road.
Gore Wear GORE-TEX INFINIUM Stretch Gloves

Aftershokz Aeropex Wireless Headphones
For those who like to listen to music while training, the Aftershokz Aeropex Wireless Headphones provide a safe way of doing so. Bone conduction is used, creating an open design that curves around the ear. The headphone itself sits just in front of the ear, with the vibrations translated to sound by the inner ear. The result of this technology is that a runner or cyclist can enjoy music but still hear external sounds, a massive improvement over in-ear offerings that completely block traffic and other noises around you.
Sound quality is good, so there's no need to compromise in the search for a safer option. Slim and light, the headphones are comfortable to wear and will remain in place when you're pounding the pavements or trails. Water-resistance adds reliability no matter the conditions and the controls are easy to access., what's not to love?
Spatz Roadman 2 Overshoes
If you're tired of hearing complaints about cold feet after a winter ride, the Spatz Roadman 2 Overshoes could be the perfect solution. Not only protecting the feet, they also cover the entire lower leg, with an extra thermal panel over the shin, together with a 4.5mm Kevlar toe box, protecting areas hit hardest by the elements. Neoprene construction is both insulating and water-resistant, keeping the feet toasty and the muscles warm.
On Running Cloud Running Shoes
Fresh running shoes can rejuvenate performance, and On Running's Cloud Running Shoes incorporate On Running's innovative approach.

Perfect for typically British conditions which can be somewhat grey on occasion, the clarity and contrast-enhancing Prizm Road lens will work well across a range of light levels. The lens may be extensive, but it's well ventilated so fogging and overheating shouldn't be an issue. Perfect for city commuting and the urban environment yet also just as at home out in the country lanes, the Sutros suit a wide range of needs.
