    CRC and Wiggle start categorising gifts by price nearer to Xmas. Make up your own wish list and let the family choose.
  • Tyres, wet, dry & intermediate sets.
    Need any tools, workstand etc?
    Clothing, jerseys and such.

    Main problem is we dont know what you have, need, or want.
  • Magic Shine light £50

    That's what Santa is bringing me (or he better be).

    I always reckon the best presents are things you want, but wouldn't buy. Though what that means for you, I don't know :lol: I quite fancy getting a pair of waterproof shorts for mine, I'd feel like a wuss buying a pair but I wouldn't object to wearing them :wink: Or maybe a really good floor pump or something.

  • a good track pump and a stans kit, both around £50 and an utter god-send...

    It's the sort of thing you wouldn't buy for yourself, but certainly worth trying if someone hands it to you!

  • what about seals skin socks for winter rides, computer games, DVD's or a subscription to a rental service online, aftershaves or get them all to club together and get you one big present set of wheels or new forks, full gear overhaul or something.

    Not sure about the availability outside the USA, but custom lock ring grips seem like a good gift idea - either ODI or Lizard Skins.
  • Magazine Subscription!
  • What about a nice multi-tool? You can get a really good one well within your £50.

    Decent sunglasses?
