We get it, present shopping is hard. There are only so many times you can give a person a pair of socks, while Amazon gift vouchers hardly scream, ‘I really thought about your present.’

Fear not. This year we’ve put together a list of some of the best gifts you can get for the cyclist in your life. Although this guide comes with a little twist.

See.Sense was born and raised in Northern Ireland so it seems only right to shine a spotlight on companies in the area who are doing great things to make your ride better. That’s why all 5 gifts shown below come straight from companies based in Northern Ireland (insert joke here about this list bringing you the luck of the Irish this Christmas).

#1: Galibier Quilted Gilet (£43.25)

This insulated gilet delivers serious warmth in a feather-light, stylish package. It also has reflective highlights on it and a rear pocket that’s big enough to hold all your essentials.

#2: Victory Chimp Bobble Hat (£23)

This supersoft beanie is ideal for moments off the bike. It’s double layered for warmth, machine washable, and available in four Stampen & Ogham colour patterns.

#3: Resolute Bay Winter Cycling Collar (£25)

Ideal for city cycling, this collar is made from 100% merino wool which protects you from the cold and is highly breathable. The fabric is stretchy too so the collar can be pulled over your face for extra protection on colder days.

#4: A Custom Bike from Mango (from £349)

Yes this is a more expensive option, but when you can customise your bike, and produce something like the above, who’s really counting pennies? Thanks to Mango you can make a one-off fixie, single speed or 16 speed bike, customising everything from tyre colour to handlebar type.

#5: See.Sense ICON2 Set (£90)

A bit of self-promotion never hurt anyone right? Right? 

Whatever your answer, this Christmas you can get your hands on one of our new bike lights - ICON2 - at a fraction of its future retail cost. The lights are based on our award-winning ICON light and are packed with more brightness and intelligence than ever before. Each one contains two different types of LEDS, with 300 lumen LEDs in the rear light and 400 lumen LEDs in the front.

So there you have it… 2018’s Christmas list = done.

Looking for more gift inspiration? We’ve put together two lists that feature presents to make your ride better, one with 7 gifts under £50, the other with 6 gifts under £100. There’s also our list of 6 gifts under £40 for more general cycling presents (books, pictures etc.) to help you out.
