Christmas Gift Guide £50 to £150

Didn’t think we would stop at £50 did you? Oh ho ho ho no. Here are some ideas in the slightly more generous range. We might even have a super plush top of the pile post left you know but, that would be the last of these mince pies. Happy shopping and buy ethical and local if you can!

‘Faemino’ Retro Leisure Sweater

Christmas jumpers are not really my thing but you do need some sort of Christmas sweater and what better than the ‘Faemino’ Retro Leisure Sweater from Prendas. Faemino was the team of Eddy Merckx in 1970, a vintage year for Eddy and 2014 could be a vintage sweater year for some of you? I would be happy with an Eddy hand me down/up sweater number. Buy some Eddy style here and it will make you faster (maybe).

Cycle Systems Academy gift voucher


For those in the London area (or able to go there at the weekend), how about treating your loved one[s] to some bike wrenching skills? The one day basic maintenance course is an introduction to cycle maintenance for complete beginners. The course includes; tyres tubes and punctures, brakes, gear system and bearings. Just think of it as an investment for the future! Buy your gift vouchers here.

Howies Men’s Bib Tights


Winter is cold. You need tights, made of yes that’s right ‘Roubiax’ a famous brand of ah wait… No I mean this; Seamlessly knitted men’s bib tights, with contoured panelling and a second skin fit. Integrated breathable panels minimise the need for seams and helps avoid chafing. Reflective tape at the hem helps you get noticed at night. These beauties are made in Portugal which is a very good place to get garments made well and ethically. Sweet. Good price on these too. Buy here.
