Finding the perfect gift can be difficult. There are so many options available, what do you get?

Before giving up and buying a pair of socks (again!), check out our guide to the best Christmas gifts. With options for your friend, brother, sister, parents, grandparents or partner, you’re bound to find the perfect gift.

Electric scooters

When trying to find the perfect gift, you probably haven’t considered an electric scooter.* But you should have!

Electric scooters are great fun and have rapidly grown in popularity. When it comes to picking an e-scooter, you won’t find many better than the Carrera impel is-1 Electric Scooter.

It’s packed with market-leading features including dual disc brakes, a multi-functional LED display, and an electronic locking system and built-in cable lock. With a sleek design, it looks great too and it’s a great present for Christmas.

Electric bikes

E-bikes offer the same great benefits of a normal bike but with added assistance, perfect if you want a faster ride or to take the strain off when tackling tricky uphill stretches.

If you’re considering buying an e-bike as a present this Christmas, look no further than the Carrera impel im-2. A part of Carrera’s newest range of e-bikes, it’s a versatile choice that’s equally at home on an urban commute as it is riding on off-road paths.

No matter what it’s used for, it’ll always offer the same level of performance thanks to an impressive Hyena motor that can power you up to speeds of 15.5 miles per hour. On top of this, it boasts a maximum range of up to 50 miles, enough for any ride.**

If you want more options, check out the Carrera impel im-1 and Carrera impel im-3 (coming soon!) e-bikes. Our range doesn’t end there, and you can find many more over at, starting from as little as £499. Making things even better, you can pay later with Klarna so you can easily split the cost.

Kids’ bikes

There’s no better gift than a new bike – just make sure you’re prepared for those squeals of excitement.

With its aqua frame, shimmering scales, handlebar streamers, and a dolly carrier, the Apollo Mermaid Kids Bike will be a hit with those little ones who love mermaids.

For wannabe firemen, the Apollo Firechief Kids Bike is a popular choice. With a siren on the front and a toolbox on the back, they’ll always be ready to race to the rescue.

Want to make the present extra special? You can personalise your little one’s new bike by adding their name to the frame. We also have a reindeer gift bag and a red bow to help you prepare the bike for the big reveal – and you can combine all three of these extras together for only £10!

Many of our kids’ bike are also available in bundles with the must-have accessories – so, it’s lots of presents rolled into one.

Kids’ scooters

There’s no denying it, scooters are cool, and having the coolest scooter is important.

Scooters don’t come much cooler than the Invert FS2+ Rocket Fuel Stunt Scooter. Perfect for mastering new tricks, the Invert has a cool look that every young shredder wants!

Of course, not all kids are quite at the trick stage. For those who are taking their first steps into the world of scooting, try the U-Move LED Scooter – Pearl Pink. Perfect for beginners, the patented lock system allows you to adapt the steering angle as your little one improves.

Adult bikes

They say Christmas becomes less exciting as you get older, but we reckon a new bike can lead to some excited squeals from grown-ups too!

And a bike from Apollo, one of the UK’s leading brands, will go down very well this Christmas. Apollo design their bikes around a simple mantra – cycling made easy.

That’s why they have a wide range of bikes for every type of rider, and their adult bikes are designed to fit teenagers and above. So, whether it’s the Apollo Jewel Women’s Mountain Bike or the Apollo Transfer Men’s Hybrid Bike, explore their range and find the perfect gift.
