How about one of these cool multi tools https://www.evanscycles.com/tools-m..._tools-tool_type?priceIncMin=5&priceIncMax=16
Indispensable to a cyclist.
My fave would be the Carradice as it includes a chain tool.
For £15 I would get them a retro bike.
Park Tools bottle opener, pizza cutter or spork.
This would be a terrible gift for a racing snake, but might be just the thing for a winter audaxer.
It’s secret Santa, it’s meant to be an amusing or silly gift, not sensible or practical (unless also fun)
Reviewing vickster's reply - if they work in London a £15 oyster card for when they don't have a puncture repair kit.
I think the buff is sensible, practical and fun, as it can wear it in all sorts of silly ways.
Should be amusing, but what is amusing to the giver, can be upsetting to the receiver.
Amusing not insulting.
Doesn’t everyone take SS in that vein?
A £5 ss, yeah sure, joke present. £15 says useful - or at least edible - to me.
Up to £15...maybe the OP works for a hedge fund, so £15 equates to a joke
I guess @Harv needs to tell us about the company culture for SS
Usually, but have seen a few gifts that could be taken in the wrong way.
Hopefully the OP knows the thickness of the recipients skin...socks can rarely offend!
Oh I don't know, you could pick a really rubbish set of socks, as you could pick an equally rubbish buff.
PS Rutland cycling have a muc off kit for just under £15 and its free delivery, just in case. I am not sure how its relevant but if they don't wash their bike very often, maybe both amusing and useful
Our secret santa is fun but we don't want money wasting on tat, so we also expect it to be something sensible or practical at the same time.
