It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... So you should add this little lot to your Christmas list. We're pretty sure Santa reads Domestic Sluttery...
The bicycle bella in your life will love you forever if you give her this Yakkay Tokyo helmet from Bonnie Bikes. It's less helmet, more hat, but honestly, it has been certified as protective gear! The hat is actually a removable cover, so you can also wear the helmet on its own if you like. I know we ladies shouldn't need an incentive to wear a helmet - (the whole saving-one's-life thing is a big selling point) - but there's nothing wrong with wanting something as feminine and stylish as this to make up for the helmet hair. It is £85, but it's got the potential to save your life, whilst looking stylish.
Beloved bicycles deserve chic accessories, and these vintage pannier box bags from Style Chic are oh so pretty. Correction - pretty AND practical! They £44.99 and they attach to the back pannier rack of the bike, perfect for carrying groceries, clothes, bottles of wine (cough). They're made from water-resistant PVC, and close with a secure buckle, so mademoiselle can get her groceries (or wine) home safely. So that's the practical bit... and did I mention they're pretty?
Bicycle bells are more than audible bling, they're a polite way of making oneself noticed on the road. Make sure your favourite cyclist has a bell on their bicycle, by giving them this Rose Tattoo Bicycle Bell from Chain Reaction Cycles in their Christmas stocking. In fact, even if they already have a bell, make them replace it with this one, because it's just too cute. And only £7.99.
