When it comes to looking for the perfect gift for active parents, sometimes simple is best. That could mean an offer to watch the kids for a day so Mom and Dad can hike, but often we want to help parents, especially with young children, find things that can have a lasting impact on their busy daily lives that’s not only practical but enjoyable.
At Unlimited Biking, we are a busy group with newborns and kids of our own. Here’s our list of best gift ideas for parents who like to get outside to explore more, and enjoy more, with their kids.
The Burley Trailer Child Trailer (starts at $329.95)
This lightweight, bike-only trailer features comfortable seating for one or two children, holding up to 100 pounds in total. Hitch it on to your bike and take off for a safe and smooth ride that the whole family can enjoy. The five-point harness system and full internal aluminum roll cage give parents peace of mind when it comes to protection. And when the kids aren’t in it? Use it to stash groceries or run errands! Comes with steel hitch, tow arm, and a safety flag.
The Yepp Maxi Easyfit Rack Mount Child Seat ($249.95)
As many working parents have adjusted to their new home office life, the normal commute by car or public transportation feels like a thing of the past. When it comes to bringing the little ones to school or daycare, a bike ride is a great way to spend quality time on the way to and from the house or apartment. The Yepp Maxi Easyfit rack makes it designed and tested for children from 1-6 years of age up to 40 pounds, and its versatile rack is compatible with a variety of adult bikes. Comes with an anti-theft lock.
MSW squeeze horns ($10)
What’s more fun as a kid than using a bike horn? Yes, parents might give you some side eye when the little ones open this one, but the unicorn, cactus, narwhal, and panda horns will quickly have everyone smiling. This is a great way to have fun teaching young bicycle riders safety first!
