Can’t think of a gift for the motorcyclist in your life? We’ve put together a list of 10 truly unique motorcycle gifts that are sure to please. Check it out!
If you have a good friend or a family member who owns and rides motorcycles, you may be struggling to come up with the perfect gift for them. You may have gone through this struggle before only to give up and settle on a gift card.
It’s tough buying gifts because you want to get the person something they want and will enjoy, but it can be challenging unless you flat out ask the person to tell you what they want, which takes the fun and surprise out of gift giving. That challenge is even worse when trying to choose gifts for motorcyclists because people who own and ride motorcycles tend to be individualists with their own ideas about what equipment to add to their motorcycles and the clothing they wear when riding. Buy the wrong thing, and it will end up in the closet or in a corner of the garage.
You may be thinking right now that a gift card may not be such a bad idea after all. Well, forget about gift cards, because we’ve done the heavy lifting for you.
In compiling a list of cool gifts for motorcyclists, we purposely stayed away from highly personal items, such as helmets. Riders can be very picky about the type of helmet they choose to wear. Buy a full-face helmet for someone who prefers a half helmet, and your gift will be returned or go into storage.
Even if you know the style preference and helmet size worn by a rider, it has to fit and feel right. Trust us when we say that buying a helmet is a very personal process that does not lend itself to gift giving unless you take the person with you. If that’s what you’re doing, then you may as well just go with a gift card or put money in an envelope with a funny card. Better yet, skip the helmet or other types of gifts where size or personal preference becomes a deal breaker. Instead, we have a better idea.
We’ve put together a list of 10 unique gifts for motorcyclists from which to choose. Our suggestions are certain to please even the fussiest and hardest-to-shop-for riders. All you have to do is buy the one you like, wrap it, add a bow and some ribbons, and then stand back and enjoy what happens when the gift is opened.
10 Unique Gifts for Motorcycle Riders
As you look through this list of gifts for motorcycle lovers, compare each of the gift suggestions to what you know about the person you are buying it for in order to come up with a perfect match. Here, then, are our suggested motorcycle gifts for the motorcyclist in your life.
Motorcycle phone mount:
Having your phone visible while you ride makes it easier to use the GPS application to get you where you need to go, so the last thing a rider wants to do is reach into their pocket to get to the phone. Mounts specifically designed for use on motorcycles prevent a phone from being damaged by vibration. These are the three best options that we found:
Available in black or silver, this phone mount is equipped with a vibration dampener to minimize the risk of damaging a phone and to keep it steady when recording videos while riding. It features a quick, easy to use one-handed lock and release design. Phone mount installs on the handlebars or on the mirror bracket. Available sale at $79.99.
Phone charger mount accommodates charging two devices at the same time. The USB C port lets you connect to a power bank or to a USB socket as a power input. Made of aluminum alloy with a telescoping arm that safely and securely holds the phone in place. It includes shockproof silicone to prevent vibration damage while holding the phone steady as you ride. Available for sale for $38.99.
Built last, this machined aluminum mount uses an industrial spring system to securely hold your phone while riding. Convenient one-hand operation of the phone cradle makes it easy to get the phone in and out. This item is available for sale for $59.99.
2. Motorcycle touchscreen gloves
Gloves are great as Christmas gifts for motorcyclists because everyone who rides can use them. They also are an excellent gift idea for other times of the year, as well. Gloves not only keep the hands warm and protect them in case of an accident, but they also improve a rider’s gripping ability. Gloves made for use with a cellphone’s touch screen let riders use their phone without the annoyance of having to remove their glove. Here are a few recommendations:
These short-cuff gloves are made from leather, but the unique design promotes airflow that riders appreciate when riding during hot weather. Strategically placed foam padding on the thumb and palm areas improves rider comfort. It has a touch-screen finger for convenience of use. The gloves sell for $59.95.
Stylish and comfortable describe these real leather gloves that protect hands from the elements and road hazards while delivering comfort and flexibility.

Waterproof and ideal for riding in colder weather, these suede microfiber gloves include polar microfleece, but they are breathable to promote rider comfort. These touch-screen compatible gloves sell for $79.90.
3. Motorcycle cover
If the person on your gift list has a garage to store a motorcycle, you may be tempted to skip motorcycle covers. They are actually cool gifts for motorcyclists who travel and need a shelter for their bikes while on the road and away from home. Here are three of the best options in motorcycle covers:
Made of durable, all-weather polyester with covered ventilation ports and pass-throughs at both the front and rear wheels to make it easier to lockup a motorcycle using a chain or cable. Elastic bottom seams make the cover stretchable for ease of installation and a snug fit. A lobster-claw strap allows the cover to do its job protecting a motorcycle even during high winds. It sells for $89.99.

Perfect to protect your motorcycle from mild weather conditions while traveling. Sizes available to fit different types and sizes of bikes. Prices start at $39.96.
4. Action Camera for Motorcycle Helmets
Helmet action cameras make it possible for you to show people what you experience on your rides instead of only telling them about it. In case of an accident, video shot by an action camera mounted on a helmet can prove invaluable to prove that another driver was at fault.
This action camera with microphone has 1080P/720P full HD resolution with a wide angle lens. Powered by a rechargeable built-in lithium battery, the camera measures only 3.54 x 1.18 inches. Built for use in all weather conditions. Available for only $43.99.

5. Portable Tire Inflator
Nothing is more frustrating than to realize your tires need air when riding in an unfamiliar area. A portable tire inflator makes perfect sense when trying to decide on gifts for motorcycle lovers. Here are three to consider:

6. Waterproof Accessory Bag
Motorcycles generally have limited storage capacity, so waterproof accessory bags make ideal gifts for motorcycle lovers. The three bags we’ve chosen for this list of suggested gifts for motorcyclists offer a waterproof alternative to backpacks or traditional luggage when carrying clothing and other things you prefer not carrying in saddlebags:
Sedici offers an entire line of dry accessory bags that come in different sizes. They can be used independently or attached to each other for increased capacity. Each bag is made of dual-layer tarpaulin material that is waterproof, so whatever you pack stays dry regardless of the weather. Available in 5, 10 and 20 liter sizes starting at $35.99.
Bags come in 8-, 15- and 30-liter sizes and are made from PVC-coated polyester that is waterproof and resistant to tears. Bags may be used independently or combined into a modular unit. Prices start at $65.99 for the 8 liter bag.

7. Multitool for Motorcyclists
Roadside or trailside, a multitool in your pocket or saddlebag offers peace of mind knowing that the tools needed for emergency repairs or to make adjustments are readily available. The following are our top choices as motorcycle rider gifts:

8. Wireless Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Riding on tires that are under or over inflated can lead to excessive wear and damage to your tires. It also affects how a motorcycle handles, which could lead to an accident. An easy way to monitor tire pressure as you ride is with a wireless tire pressure monitoring system. Here are two suggestions:
This system gives you real-time monitoring of tire pressure and temperature. System includes two sensors that mount on your tires, lock nuts, waterproof digital display unit, and mounting units for either handlebar or flat surfaces. The system sells for $54.95.

Allows you to get text alerts when tires are over or under inflated. Includes 2 sensors that mount on the air valves of your tires. The system sells for $99.00.
9. Air-Cooling Motorcycle Seat Cushion
Standard motorcycle seats are notorious for being uncomfortable on long rides or when riding in warm weather because they get hot and stay hot. Give the motorcyclist on your gift list something to smile about with an air-cooling motorcycle seat cushion. Here are our choices:
Instead of paying the high cost of a customized seat for your motorcycle, try a seat cushion designed to circulate air to keep you cool as you ride. It relieves pressure points while keeping you cool all day. It sells for $29.95 for the large, but other sizes are available to fit your bike.
Its unique design lets you fill the cushion with air or water to achieve the body-shaping comfort you desire. The water absorbs heat while the design of the cushion promotes air circulation as you ride. The seat cushion is sized to fit most motorcycles and is priced at $28.99.
An ergonomically designed gel seat pad made specifically with the comfort of passengers in mind. Made of durable fabric that is waterproof, this easy to install passenger pad sells for $50.92.
10. Motorcycle Sound Bar
What could be better than listening to your favorite music while out for a ride on a motorcycle? We’ve chosen three sound bars that we think offer the best in sound quality while standing up to the elements and road vibration:
Crystal clear sound quality with impressive mid- and low-range depth can be expected from the dual woofers and four tweeters built into this soundbar. Along with impressive sound, the Wanderbar is built to withstand the vibration and adverse weather conditions typical to motorcycle riding. Features include rechargeable lithium battery and Bluetooth technology. Available in 10- and 14-inch sizes with prices starting at $521.99.
