Whether it's a thank you gift, a birthday present, or a simple sign of affection, if you're looking to buy gifts for cyclists, then you may need some inspiration. We, as cyclists, can be a fussy bunch to please.

So whether you're the gift-giver looking for inspiration or the recipient wanting to suggest ideas, we’ve compiled a range of great gifts for cyclists so the cyclists of the world can get something they can actually use and enjoy.
Scroll on for an all-encompassing guide to our favourite gifts for cyclists no matter their age or preferred discipline and budget. We'll cover wallet-friendly crowd-pleasers to the crème de la crème of premium products (in case you’re feeling especially generous).

Unlike most hand pumps that can tire you out very quickly, the Lezyne HV Micro Floor Drive acts like a miniature track pump, with a fold-out foot that you can use to stand it upright and push down to pump. It also includes a PSI gauge and makes an excellent addition to their tool stash.

Philips Lumea Prestige Hair Removal Device
For the cyclist who shaves their legs
RRP: £475.00 / $610.99
For many road cyclists, removing leg hair is just as important as lubing a chain. Wind tunnel data has shown that shaving your legs can actually make you faster on the bike, so it’s no surprise that many serious cyclists shave their legs.

It’s essentially an oversized corkscrew, but made with the premium materials and Italian flair you’d expect from Tullio Campagnolo. As a functional corkscrew, it’s designed to prevent the bottle from shaking and to never twist through the cork and cause it to drop into the wine. As a collector’s item, its careful finish includes some well-considered details like the design of the screws, derived from the 70s Super Record crankset. It’s bound to be a crowd-pleaser in the right hands.
Cycling gifts for him
Smoother is faster. Always
RRP: £39.99 / $34.95
Smoother is faster. When Specialized launched its Roubaix, that was its tag line… We bet the company didn't expect us to use it in favour of shaven legs.
The truth is, smoother legs are indeed faster, and a great number of cyclists shave their legs for that very reason. So if the cyclist in your life wants to go faster, you can't go wrong with a razor - but maybe check he's part of the silky-smooth club first.
Of course, if they're not part of the leg-shaving brigade, then you could still gift this razor as a brilliant tongue-in-cheek present, and the chances are he'll find it useful anyway.
Rapha Merino Boxers

These cufflinks are made from upcycled chain links, making them a great way to repurpose worn parts that would otherwise go to scrap. Plus, they’re a small and subtle way to add a bit of personality to workwear.
Rapha Brevet Lightweight Jersey
A super popular and lightweight jersey for long, hot rides

Something to make the rides more comfortable
RRP: £15.50 / $18.99

It's a non-greasy lubricant that will help prevent friction build-up and keep them comfortable for hours on the saddle.
We've included it in our 'cycling gifts for him' section due to the fact that we've also featured the female-specific version in our gifts for her section, but there's nothing stopping women using this.
Park Tool Heavy Duty Shop Apron - SA-3
A useful gift for a home mechanic
RRP: £37.99 / $29.95

All the inspiration she needs to get out and adventure

Primal Flamingo Socks
Inject a bit of fun into her cycling getup

However we think these flamingo socks are absolutely bang on the money.
Paceline Chamois Butt’r For Her
A chamois cream specially formulated for women
RRP: £15.50 / $17.99
Chamois Butt’r is already a very popular choice amongst cyclists, and the women-specific formula is just as good. Ingredients include aloe vera and vitamins A and E, and because the women’s formula is pH balanced specifically for lady parts, she can slather it all over. It also contains shea butter that moisturises, and tea tree oil, which has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It has a light consistency, similar to hand cream, and a light lavender scent. All in all, a very useful gift.
Katy Craig Bicycle Earrings
