Christmas Gift Guide | Our Top 10 Must-haves

Your Christmas shopping has never been made easier. Our curated collection will guarantee a smile the face of someone special who loves to ride.  Most of them will fit under the Christmas tree. Oh, and don’t forget yourself, you deserve a gift too.

Our first pick makes a great stocking-stuffer. Made in Montreal, Bidon au vin (AKA) wine holder. We're a little obsessed with leather bike accessories lately and this is no exception. All you need is a bike with a straight bar and you’re good to go. This will come in handy while cycling to all those great holiday gatherings you'll be going to.

Earlier this season we wrote about the Urbanist panties for the cycling women in your life. We are waiting with  baited breath for these babies to come to market. We love them, enough said.

For the rider who has everything. We're recommending bicycle Crates, The Day Tripper comes with it’s own wine holder. Large enough for some groceries, your hand bag and more. The Transporter will hold a whole lot of whatever you like; all that plus a growler. Sweet! 

A new way to cycle - say good-bye to helmets as we know them and hello cool!  Hövding helmet. This is always on the list of the cycling chic.

How about a super soft wool, mohair & acrylic woven scarf with bicycle motif. The colour combinations are fun and the scarf is warm, but not necessarily just for the women in your life. I Could totally see my husband rocking this scarf. In fact, it's under the tree as I write; shhh it's our secret. You can find these lovelies at Smoking Lily

If you are giving the gift of a scarf, here's 25 Ways to Wear a Scarf

Hotelfietsbel - Long gone are the days that you have to shout yourself hoarse with cries of “On yer left!” Get yourself one of these brass beauties instead, it will stand out on the grey days of winter. 

Give the gift of hope with a House of Talents bicycle basket. These baskets are one-of-a-kind, handwoven by artisans in Ghana. House of Talents provides economic development opportunities to its employees and provides scholarship opportunities to the children of the community in which their basket weavers reside.

How sweet would one of these babies look under the tree?

Ride safe glow in the dark reflective bird pins. Lets face it, some of the reflective items available today are reflective but not in a good way. These pins are cute and placed strategically will help you get noticed. And for $9.00, they're a steal! 

Or how about give the gift of choice with a Le Vélo Gift Card. They fit nicely in a stoking or Christmas card.
