Are you trying to get in some early bird Christmas shopping? Nothing beats a bike as a Christmas present for kids, and it’s one they’ll remember to years to come! Read on to discover our top tips for making sure you’ve got the perfect bike for the kids under the tree this year!
Step 1: Find the bike for your little one!
So you know you want to get them a bike, but which one do they want? There are loads of children’s bikes in colourful designs to choose from, but which size and features should you look for?
Well, a good place to start is with our guide to kids’ bikes, as well as our guide to getting the right size bike for your kids. That can help to put you on the right track and find what would really put a smile on their face!
Step 2: Add their name!
Once you’ve found the right bike, it’s time to make it really special. All of our Apollo and Carrera kids’ and junior bikes can be personalised by adding your child’s name as a fun sticker which matches the bike’s design. Just follow the instructions in the checkout online, or ask at your local store if you’re interested.
On each bike’s product page you’ll be able to see an example of how the names look.
Step 3: The whole package
Got the bike sorted? Great! Now it’s time to start thinking about accessories. Helmets, gloves and other accessories are really important for protection – if your kids love their cool or cute matching designs they’ll be much more likely to want to wear them.
Accessories can make fantastic gifts from aunts, uncles or grandparents who aren’t sure what to buy. Loads of our character bikes come with a range of matching accessories to help your kids get fully kitted out and ready to ride this Christmas.
Step 4: Keep it a surprise!
So you want to be really good and get all your Christmas shopping done early, but one thing is foiling your plans – how on earth are you going to keep a bike safely hidden from any nosy monkeys between now and Christmas? Well, we can help you out with this one, too!
