If you have a true biker as a dad, brother or friend (or mum or sister!), then nothing will show how much you love them more than a bike-related Christmas gift.
Whilst their dream machine might be a little out of reach in terms of budget, we think they’ll love our selection of gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to any passionate petrol-head who spends as much time as possible on the seat of their motorcycle.
We’ve hunted down the hottest Christmas present ideas to save you the time and hassle (as that’s exactly what we’re known for here at Find & Finance) and have bought you the best buys for all budgets that will make perfect biker buddy stocking fillers.
1.Guided tour of Triumph factory in Hinckley, Leicestershire
Fashion a day out around their love for motorbikes with a guided Triumph factory tour. Book through Virgin Experience Days and you can choose from:
- A factory tour for two – £40
- A factory tour for two including coffee and cake – £50

Take a trip behind the scenes of the iconic Triumph brand and watch them drool over the amazing mechanical designs and priceless merchandise.
2.Off-road motorcycle training at Triumph Adventure in Powys, Wales
Virgin Experience Days are offering vouchers for:
- a half-day off-road training course at £210
- or ramp it up to a full day, full-on scrambling experience for £350.
3.Carry laptops and more in a hard-shell biker backpack
This Chengstore multifunction hard-shell backpack offers waterproof protection for whatever they need to carry. It’s ergonomically designed to reduce drag, so it won’t feel like it’s holding them back – just holding all their essentials.
It also comes in a choice of colours so you can colour-co-ordinate with their bike or helmet, or add an extra flash of something bright for safety.
There are more expensive hard-shell backpacks retailing at in excess of £100, but we think this one – available from Amazon.co.uk for £42.59 – has everything a biker might need at amazing value.
4.A practical travel roll with bags of room
If they want to steer clear of a backpack, however, this Oxide 40 litre waterproof biker bag is a perfect piece of kit to fit in any extras they need to take on a ride. Made from premium TEK leather, it’s hard-wearing and robust enough to withstand natural wear and tear, as well as being weatherproof and fire resistant.
The 40 litre capacity offers plenty of storage space and it’ll come in really useful if they need to carry more than a backpack alone can fit. It’s available from Amazon.co.uk at £64.99.
5.Essential cleaning kit for mucky riders
If your biker bud likes a clean machine then you can’t go wrong with this Muc-Off essential care kit (we love the name too!). It has everything they need to clean and protect their pride and joy, leaving it sparkling, shiny and protected.
As well as the cleaning formula and a protectant spray, cleaning accessories include a microcell sponge and a wheel brush shaped to clean rims and spokes easily and comfortably. It also comes with a handy storage bag to keep the kit neat and together. Currently available for just £20.48 on Amazon.co.uk.
6.To occupy them off-road
When they’re not out riding, you can guarantee true bikers will still be thinking of riding. To help them wile away the time when they’re not on the road, we thought this jigsaw would be right up their street. It looks classy as an ornament when complete and can be proudly displayed in any biker home or man-cave, but it’s also great fun to challenge your mates with as a puzzle.
It’s available from Amazon.co.uk for £19.95. We think it’s a great gift for under £20.
7.Keep them cosy!
The ROTTO Motorcycle Balaclava is both waterproof and windproof, with a snug-fitting Lycra material for comfort and thermal polar fleece lining for warmth. It both protects and feels comfortable under a helmet.
It’s also great for cycling, hiking and skiing so multi-purpose if they like other outdoor pursuits.
This is listed on Amazon.co.uk for £14.49.
8.Keep them warm-hearted
If you want to go one step further on the warmth front, how about investing a little more in this KEIS V501 premium heated vest. At £139.99 from JS Accessories it’s not the cheapest gift, but it’s one you can guarantee will keep you close to their heart when they’re riding in the good old British winter!
The vest uses the latest micro carbon fibre technology for advanced heat radiation which produces heat across the wearer’s chest, back and kidneys. The elasticated side panels provide a perfect fit for both men and women. It can be powered by your bike, or by its own battery pack. It’s also practical with dedicated pockets for cables and the controller as well as additional pockets for your wallet, cash and keys etc.
9.Let them coast
When they arrive home after a chilly winter bike ride, chances are they’ll want a warming cuppa.
There’s lots of biker-based mugs out there you can get, but we think a perfectly chosen coaster could definitely raise a smile.
These are our favourites, but there’s more to choose from on Amazon.co.uk for around £2-3 per coaster. Pick your favourite one that suits them to a tee, or choose a few to make up a set.
10.Personalise a keyring
We think these metal motorbike and bike helmet keyrings are the business, with plenty of space to write a meaningful message on the attached tag. They come gift-boxed, which makes them easy to wrap and attractive to unwrap. At just £10.99 for the motorbike keyring and £11.99 for the helmet keyring (engraving included) from Amazon.co.uk, we think they’re a steal.
