Thinking up gift ideas for someone always starts like this: Well, what are they into? It might seem easy to pass over something like “riding their bike” since, well, it’s not like you’re going to buy them a new bike, but there are a lot of awesome, smaller gifts you can give the bike commuter. Here are our favorites.
Lights are a necessity for the bike commuter, but most look like they should be paired with an oversized helmet and the elbow pads you wore as a kid. For a sleeker option, consider these Magnetic Bike Lights. The powerful magnets keep them attached to the bike frame even over bumps. They can even be popped off when it’s time to lock up that two-wheeler.$32
Bike problems can happen anywhere, and it’s not exactly convenient to carry a tool kit while you’re riding. That’s why this Crank Brothers Tool is such a perfect gift. The compact kit features 12 tools for working on a bicycle, and it’s small enough to toss in a seat bag or hydration pack.$30
Handcrafted from stainless steel and brass in San Francisco, this Spurcycle Raw Bell is an ode to a bike riding time gone by. Engineered to fit all handlebars, the mighty little bell is sleek and unassuming.$49
Not every gift for the bike commuter has to be related to riding. This Bike Spoke Card Holder is crafted from spokes, inner tubes, and wood. If the end of their daily ride is the office, this is the perfect desk accessory.$20
You try balancing a coffee while dodging traffic. It’s not easy. The Trieste Coffee Cup Holder makes the morning commute a bit less challenging. The cup holder is lined with soft grip material to keep your 12- to 16-ounce coffee secure.$15
