I have decided that today you are going to help me out.
What right do I have to do that? Well, it’s my blog and I’m an aspiring megalomaniac.
But luckily, by helping me, you will in fact be helping yourselves.
You help me help you.
We all help together.
[Stop blathering Montgomery. What are you going on about?]
Today’s discussion: Christmas presents for cyclists.
Did He Say, “Christmas”?
Yes I did. And if you don’t like it, you can bite me.
There’s no point discussing this in December when our balls feel all glittery. Time is ticking on the last post. Stuff goes out of stock.
Let’s get our Christmas shopping done now, then get back to focusing on more important things (like the 4+ hours of Double Your Grand Des-Location For £100 that I like to watch on TV each week).
Pay It Forward
This discussion (yes, I’m looking for audience participation here people) will serve two purposes:
- To find gift ideas for our nearest and dearest (provided they have at least a passing interest in cycling)
- To find gift ideas for ourselves, which we can plant (overtly or covertly) in the minds of our wealthiest family and friends
What Do I Want You To Do?
Easy. Just leave a comment below this post with one or many cycling Christmas gift ideas.
Some inspiration for your comments:
- Awesome cycling gifts that you’ve received before
- Something you bought for someone else that was possibly your best present ever but they never really appreciated and everything they’ve ever given you has been extremely disappointing in comparison. Ahem.
- The perfect idea you’ve already thought of for someone this year
- Or whatever cool cycling thingummy where you’ve thought, “that would make a great gift”.
In terms of price range, we’re talking small stocking fillers (multi-tools; cycling caps) up to ‘significant gift’ (expensive clothing, a bike fit, bike GPS computer).
Clearly we all want a new custom steel-framed road bike (what, you don’t?) but it’s going to be out of most people’s price range and therefore not going to be helpful as a suggested Christmas gift.
What Am I Going To Do With This Vital Intelligence?
I’m going to collate all the suggested gift ideas and publish them in one long (and potentially useful) list.
You can refer back to it when you realise you didn’t take my advice about buying early and you’re scrabbling around Amazon on Christmas Eve Eve (Eve) whilst your friends are already decking their boughs (tra la la).
Please Leave Me A Comment
I don’t ask much from readers in return for all the ‘quality chat’ that I provide ’pon this noble weblog. I am asking now.
Whether you’ve left comments before, you’re a long-time lurker or this is the first post you’ve ever read, leave a comment below with some cycling Christmas present ideas. You will have my eternal gratitude (or at least a few minute’s worth).
I am anticipating a deluge of great ideas from you generous and imaginative Grimpeur Heureux readers.
DO. NOT. DISAPPOINT. ME.
(I am fully expecting these closing remarks to come back to haunt me when no one leaves a comment and it becomes clear that I’ve been writing to no one all this time).
