It’s that time of year again, Christmas is coming around fast and none of us have even begun to think about what we want from Santa. Let alone what we’re going to be getting the other half, friends or children! And when we finally get round to deciding what sort of gift we’d like to buy them we still have no idea where to start. This guide will help you with the Christmas list for your Road Cycling other half or friend, there should be something in here for her.
Well to help settle your nerves we’ve compiled a list of ideas for you to buy your other half, with gifts from £10 to £500. Depending on how good she’s been this year!

The classic for any cyclist. You can never have too many pairs of cycling socks. Ideal for the Christmas stocking fillers. We’ve got this triple pack or Pearl Izumi Attack socks at only £4.99. Don’t miss out!
2. Bike Lights.
The nights are long at the moment. And although we’ll soon be through the shortest day, the winter is well on the way. A good set of lights can be great as a main present or just a stocking filler. These Fabric Lumaray GPS Mount Lights are one of the best sellers at only £24.99. Perfect to fit under the Garmin of any road cyclist this Christmas.
The light can be used as a high power seeing light or a get home safe front light. Complete with micro USB charging. The GT All Terra 300 Lumen light is easy to use with gloves and at night.

Keep warm & dry this winter with a new jacket. Whether you go for Nightvision to be seen, a top end Endura jacket to keep the water out, or look for a cheaper windproof jacket, we have something for you! The best saving is this Pearl Izumi Windproof Softshell hoody. Available now for £29.99, that’s a massive £80 off!
