‘Tis the season for making your friends and loved ones feel merry and bright. If you have a cyclist in your life, chances are they’re either married to their spandex or they can be seen casually cruising around the neighborhood at any given time of day.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, what better time to spread some holiday cheer than to help the cyclist in your life upgrade their gear. Maybe there’s someone in your life that has been yearning to be more active.
An e-bike is a perfect gift to get their blood flowing, keep them healthy, and inject some fun into their daily routine.
We’ve compiled a list of must-haves, including e-bikes and accessories, to show your loved ones how special they are this holiday season!
The Perfect E-Bike Gifts for The Holiday Season
A quality pair of fingerless cycling gloves provide adequate gel padding to help dampen the chatter without your cyclist having to sacrifice their grip on the bar - which bikers love.
#2. Handlebar Tape
This gift will add a touch of personality to your cyclist’s handlebar. There is a myriad of options available - from graphic bar tape to solid colors that add a vibrant, customized aesthetic to their bike.
#3. Front or Rear Light
Want to keep your cyclist safe? A front or rear light is an effective way to help your loved one navigate the streets during the darker hours of the day.
#4. Smartphone Holder
Feeling secure during a ride also means having your smartphone handy for directions or in case an emergency call needs to be made. A universal smartphone holder gives your cyclist the freedom and flexibility to view their phone from the front of their handlebars.
Just remind them - don’t text and ride!
#5. Outdoor Socks
Depending on where you’re located geographically, your cyclist may be biking in some frigid weather. Keep them cozy with a pair of wool socks. Wool is an ideal material as it’s very breathable and it’ll keep the rider’s toes moisture-free, warm, and cushioned as they get that adrenaline going.
Gifts You Can Wrap - Don’t Forget a Bow!
#1. Bike Rack
Looking for an accessory that’s perfect for towing? A bike rack is ideal for hunting and camping as it offers an easy solution for carting equipment into the woods or towing an animal carcass to the car (does that mean you’re on the naughty list?).
#2. Handlebar Bag
Handlebars are an essential part of any bike - i.e. you don’t want to accidentally steer into the neighborhood pond. Spruce up your loved one’s bike by accessorizing it with a handlebar bag.
This add on provides the rider with an easily accessible storage unit, where they can haul all the items needed for smooth sailing, like some snacks, a map, or their smartphone. Highly practical, the handlebar bag can accommodate your cyclists’ needs whether they’re running errands or setting out for a long bike ride.
#3. Cargo Trailer
Got someone who loves sleeping under the stars or stalking through the woods to find their next prey? Cargo trailers are essential for any hunters or campers who need to store game meat or pack large items.
Cargo carts are seamlessly designed to move with the bike, ensuring the rider has a safe journey.
Whether you’re looking for style, something aerodynamic, or the safest option on the market, helmets come with a multitude of features and designs. There are even helmets available that include “docking ports” to safely secure sunglasses when the rider isn’t wearing them.
Electric Bikes That’ll Have Your Cyclist Singing Your Praises

Got a flat? Sigh. Luckily, the Xtreme Malibu is built with a quick-release hub system, allowing the inner tube to be removed quickly and efficiently.

The latest version, just released this year, dons magnesium alloy wheels, a powerful Bafang motor, integrated lights, wider tires, and more, for an optimal riding experience.
Once Halloween passes, the holidays seem to just sneak up on us without warning. The holidays can be hectic, so start your shopping early to avoid the stress (and the swarm of people). An e-bike is a great gift for all types of people.
Whether your loved one is a hunter, bike enthusiast, commuter, camper, or just keen on getting fit in the New Year, the e-bike is a gift that will be treasured by all.
