The buzz of choosing a bike for Christmas can be sometimes quashed with the pressure getting it from off the shelf to under the tree. Not to mention the faff of wrapping it!

But now, thanks to us, help is at hand, whether you’re looking for their first wheels or a replacement for a pre-teen.

We’ve put ours-elves in your shoes and come up with the fixes you need to leave you feeling relieved on Christmas Eve! Imagine your very own little army of h-elfers choosing, building, wrapping, storing and delivering your bike! Here’s how we can help…


If it’s their first bike, you’ll want to feel safe in the knowledge that you’ve chosen the right one, and although we can’t promise there’ll be no bumps or tumbles, we can tell you that our trained colleagues are clued up and confident that you’ll take away the perfect bike for your child.


Once you’ve found ‘the one’, why not give it that extra sprinkling of Christmas magic by adding their name.

For just £10, you can add your son’s or daughter’s name in colour co-ordinated stickers to the bike frame (you can even preview what it will look like on our website).

All you have to do is select the click and collect option at check out when shopping online, or just ask one of our friendly colleagues if you’re shopping in store. Names can be up to eight letters long, so everyone from Amanda to Jonathan needn’t miss out!

Putting it together

Christmas Eve is for mince-pie making and festive film watching, not wrestling with the wrapping paper and plastering paper cuts! Stick the to stuff that matters without sticking your hands together this Christmas, and leave the bike building to us. WeBuild is a free service we offer if you purchase a bike from us, and includes both a 22-point safety check ahead of collection, and a further check six weeks later to ensure everything’s still working safely and as it should – true peace of mind for parents.

Saving the pennies

Christmas can be an expensive time of year for Mum and Dad, especially with bikes at the top of their Christmas list! This year, we’re spreading a little festive cheer by helping you to spread the cost of your spending. When buying a bike with us, pay just £10 upfront and choose to pay the balance on collection, or even better – pay in instalments!

Store it in-store

Take away the worry of, ‘what’s that behind the sofa’ and let us store your bike in store, away from inquisitive little eyes. Then collect ahead of the big day safe in the knowledge that there’s been no sneaky peeks!

It’s a wrap!

The bike is bought, built and collected. But now comes the hard part. How do you wrap it?! Realistically you would need a very long roll of wrapping paper and a small team of family members to do so.

Save yourself the stress and use one of our bike gift bags, for a pocket friendly £3!

Now all that’s left to do is wait for those picture perfect smiles on Christmas morning!

Merry Christmas, from Halfords.
