There’s not much better than gifting a birthday present when you know you’ve hit the nail on the head and found something that the recipient will truly love.
But as we all know, inspiration doesn’t always strike at the right time, which is why we’ve put together this handy birthday gift guide.
No matter what your budget, you’ll hopefully be able to find something that suits your wallet as well as it does your biker friend.
1. Motorcycle Cargo Nets
This two pack of nets are the perfect accessory that will help any biker make use of their pillion seat.
For £7.29 each 28cm X 28 cm (unstretched) net with 6 hooks is universal to fit most motorbikes.
2. Sons of Anarchy T-Shirt
If your biker likes to advertise his biker status, nothing says biker like an iconic Sons of Anarchy T. Even if they’re not into cruisers, this T-shirt is a nod to the brotherhood and companionship which all bikers share.
3. Ryde Motorcycle Cover
Any cover is better than no cover at all. Covers can help bikes become less attractive to thieves, prevent corrosion and help keep seats dry when parking in the rain.
This bargain orange and black cover will fit and help protect most medium-sized motorcycles for the small price of £13.99.
4. Tickets to the Silverstone British MotoGP
Most bikers love seeing racers at the top of their game racing around a track. Centrally located and with plenty of viewing points, the British round of the world racing series MotoGP is held at Silverstone.
Entry tickets start from £20 for an action-packed day of world-class racing.
5. Classic Jerry Can Hip Flask
This little hip flask is a great addition for a biker that enjoys a tipple during cold days working in the shed.
At £14.99 this little could be a perfect stocking filler for your biker.
6. Triumph Factory Tour
While the Triumph Visitor Experience may be free to visit, you can give your biker the VIP Treatment with the £20pp tickets to the Triumph Factory Tour.
7. Moto GP Boot Socks
Would it even be Christmas without socks?
8. Forcefield Tech 2 Base Layer Shirt
Made with technical materials the Forcefiled Tech 2 Base Layer will keep riders cool in the summer and warmer in the winter.
This figure-hugging stylish base layer top will be your bikers favourite base layer that will add a new level of comfort when out riding.
9. Abus Detecto 7000 RS1 Alarmed Disc Lock
This tough disk lock has a built-in alarm that is sure to alert anyone near when motion is detected.
While this gift isn’t cheap – costing a little over £90 – its visual, audio and physical deterrents will help keep a bike safe.
10. The Bike Shed Membership
Starting from £125 a year, this membership gives your biker exclusive benefits and first access to some of the coolest biking events in London. We also think it’s pretty cool that members get their name engraved on the member’s wall plaque inside the club.
11. Dynaplug Ultralite Tubeless Tire Repair Tool Kit
This gift could be perfect for combatting a roadside puncture threat.
The kit is small enough to fit inside itself and the entire Dynaplug Tubeless Tire Repair Tool will fit under most bike seats.
While it doesn’t sound that exciting, your biker will be made up with this staple anti-corrosion coating spray that protects, lubricates and preserves bikes.
13. Moto Skiveez
Let’s face it – bikes aren’t always the most comfortable things to ride. This can be made a little easier with this technical moisture-wicking padded underwear.
Different padding styles are available depending on the type of bike. Think cycling shorts, but with padding in the right places specifically placed and styled depending on the type of seat and riding position your rider has.
14. Muc-Off All Weather Chain Lube
All bikers need to keep their chains lubricated.
Muc-Off All Weather Chain Lube has a hint of luxury that can be seen within the UV application dye and its high-performance synthetic formulation.
15. Blink XT2 Mobile Alerting Wireless Security Camera
This waterproof security camera has a battery that will last up to 2 years, has infrared for night time vision, a motion sensor, switchable flash and now the ability to talk through the camera.
All the footage is pushed to the Blink Camera App so its user can see what’s happening whenever they like.
16. Gerbing Heated Jacket
If your biker is always complaining about being cold when out riding, you could help them ditch their bulky jacket liners for this heated mid-layer jacket.
The jackets are powered from a bike battery and with 5 heat settings, will keep you warm and toasty all year round.
17. GoPro Hero 8
Your biker will be able to get the best footage of their rides with the Hero 8’s revolutionary image stabilisation, which takes action camera footage to a whole new level.
This camera comes with a hefty price tag, costing £379.99, but any avid filmmaker would be chuffed to find this item under the tree.
Available in so many styles, Buff multi-functional headwear comes in many variants and colours that you could spend hours choosing from. This staple can keep your biker’s neck or head warm and even protected from the sun in a staggering variety of ways.
19. SPOT Gen 3 Satellite Tracker
If your biker is a bit of an adventurer, a personal tracker that lets loved ones know where they are in the world could be the perfect Christmas gift.
This tracker can link up to the remotest of places with the GPS world emergency service network, so £139 doesn’t sound like a lot for complete peace of mind. If the user were ever to get in trouble, they can contact the International Rescue Service Team with the click of a button.
20. Garmin Zumo 396 LMT-S
This Sat Nav works brilliantly both in a car and on a bike. It comes preloaded with UK and European intelligent maps that allow users to choose the style of roads they want to ride, such as ‘Twisty Roads’.
This Sat Nav also comes with all the necessary mounts and power leads so that your biker can get going straight away.
