The Christmas countdown is well underway, the clock is ticking and those presents aren’t going to choose themselves! If you’re stuck for ideas, we’ll be featuring a range of Drovers’ goodies over the next couple of weeks – gifts for him, her and the kids – as well as a few last-minute stocking fillers for those panic-stricken moments at half past four on Xmas Eve.
First up – presents for the cycling man in your life. Whether he’s a dedicated roadie or a weekend mountain bike warrior, we’ve got all you need to make his little face light up on the big day.
Here’s a few suggestions (we also do socks!) and don’t forget we Amex cardholders get £5 cashback this weekend on purchases over £10 as part of Small Business Saturday.
