Scooter Gifts For All Occasions
Here is the definitive scooter gift guide for that scooter-loving special person in your life. Or if you are the scooter lover then you can send this post to your kids or partner and hint at what you’d like! Many items are under £15, with a few under a tenner, so they won’t break the bank either.
Here are some of the goodies which have caught my eye recently, including pictures, cards, t-shirts and books which are perfect for a scooter-themed gift. Simply click the item to find out more and purchase!
Please note : all items were in stock when this post was last updated but I cannot guarantee that they will be available forever! This post contains affiliate links for which I may receive a small commission if you click through and make a purchase, at no extra cost to you.
Scooter Christmas Cards
You can buy a pack of 6 cards from ScooterNova here.
There are also loads of Christmas cards with a scooter theme on Etsy, like the one below. Browse their collection here!
Here’s something a bit different… JB Fabrication make a ton of useful kit of building scooters but they also do some cool bits like this oil bottle! They do a range of designs and can be bolted onto your scooter. It’s ideal for the person who has everything! Buy yours here.
There are some really cute keyrings on Etsy too, like this one which is only £6 so is a perfect stocking filler.
Every discerning scooterist’s favourite magazine is available on a subscription basis and makes the ideal gift! Here is a link to the ScooterNova website for subscriptions, merch and much more…
Daz from Crusader Promotions has a shop dedicated to scooter t-shirts. There are styles to suit everyone whether you ride a Vespa, Lambretta or auto. There are mod, ska, soul and movie t-shirts and styles for men as well as ladies. You can check it out here. Most shirts are just £12 and P&P is free in the UK.
There are ladies shirts too and this is perfect for soulies! And it’s in the sale, only £9.99 with free P&P!
You’ve probably seen the various ‘one up two/three/four down’ Scooternova t-shirts on the rallies. They’re available from the Scooternova Website along with other goodies!
I got this SLUK t-shirt for my birthday recently and my husband has one too! We just have to make sure we don’t wear them at the same time! They’re great quality shirts and you can check out the full range over at scooterlab.uk. I also have one of their ladies fit jackets and it’s waterproof as well as snugly warm (is that even a word?!).
This Makaya t-shirt features a retro Vespa image and is priced at £19.90.
And we mustn’t forget the children in our lives – and Scoots & Soul have brought out a range of Scooter Kids clothing (or SKIDS!) to go with their adult range. They have hoodies, hats, t-shirts and all sorts of good stuff over on their website.
There are plenty of psychobilly t-shirts like this one from just £12.99 with free UK delivery from Etsy.
There are some great books in the SLUK shop including this highly rated one by Garry Bushell – all about the ska revival in 79.
Or if mod’s more your thing, then he also wrote this about the ’79 mod revival.
Sticky’s Scooterboys book
For any scooterists who were around in the 1980s, this is a fantastic read. With dozens of photos and an insightful commentary, Sticky talks about us as a forgotten subculture who have flown under the radar for decades. It’s a must-read for anyone who was around in the post-Quadrophenia years.
Buy it from SLUL : The Lost Tribe.
If you’re more mechanically-minded then Sticky’s spanners’ guides are a must!
Then there’s Stuart Owen’s collection of Lambretta books – which includes guides to each model as well as how to restore them. Click here to see the full collection on Amazon.
Here’s another book : Skins, A Way of Life sets out to lift the lid on skinhead culture. From the same publisher as the Scooterboys and Mods, A Way Of Life. It’s £16.95 from the SLUK shop. Click here to buy.
Scooter Gifts – Decor
This is an unusual gift – scooter prints on old dictionary paper. Available in a range of colours they make a lovely present and cost from just £12. Click here to see all the different options.
What do you buy The Jam fans who have everything? Beer mats!
And these boxes are cute, again from Etsy, made by a small business in the UK for just £10.99. But grab them quick because they will sell out soon!
I hope this has given you some ideas for scooter gifts for Christmas or if you just fancy treating yourself.
