Not every gift needs to be a big one, and we all love to get and give stocking stuffers for coworkers, friends and other family. Here are a few of our staff’s picks for smaller gifts that pack a powerful punch.
Sock Guy tout themselves as being the most comfortable sock you’ll ever wear. And we agree! They are a combination of nylon, spandex and a wicking micro fabric that molds to feet while keeping them dry. Socks range from $9.95 to $13.95 and come in fun designs fit for any personality.
Another great stocking stuffer is the SERFAS Seat Stay Light taillight with a red ½ watt LED bulb surrounded by regular LED bulbs. For $20, you can gift all the cyclists on your holiday list with a reliable light that gets about 100 hours burn time from a fresh charge. It’s water resistant and easy to mount; it simply clicks to any tube on any bike. It comes with 2 Lithium CR 2032 batteries.
For the cyclists looking for an easier way to fix a flat, pick up Planet Bike’s Red Zeppelin CO2 Tire Inflator. This one’s good for any avid cyclist that puts in a lot of miles and finds themselves tired of pumping their flat tire. The compact Zeppelin comes with two 16g CO2 cartridges and an insulator sleeve. It retails for $19.99.
A good training aid for a devoted racer, Cateye’s Strada Wireless CC-RD300W measures current and average speeds, distances traveled and time. It mounts to most road and mountain bike forks, and is easy to read with large numbers and a wide screen. The Strada Wireless retails for $64.95.
Every cyclists commuting to work should have a coffee on-the-go if they want one, so gifting a PDW Bar-ista Coffee Mug Holster to one of your coworkers is a practical “Secret Santa” gift or stocking stuffer. It clips onto the handlebars for quick and easy access during the morning commute. Retailing for a very reasonable $18, this will definitely make the cut for an office holiday “grab bag” gift.
Whether a runner, cyclist, triathlete or just active, safety should always come first. That’s why we suggest the Road ID for any athlete on your gift list. This personalized bracelet is engraved with their name, hometown, a serial and pin, and a number to call for all the necessary info on the rider. They range in price from $19-$29 and can be purchased on their website. For free shipping, use this code: DNDSXDX7.
