If you're like most people you'd much rather receive than give but there's a certain time of year when you have to open your wallet and buy family, friends and sometimes even co-workers a gift.
OK, just kidding, if you're not super excited about the holidays and can't wait to give that awesome present you found deep in the bowels of some dusty old book store than you're simply un-American.
But truth be told, one aspect of the Christmas season perplexes many people and that's what to fill the stockings hung by the chimney with care. The old standby of candy, gum and deodorant works but for the Motocross fan, give them a little precursor of what to expect when circling around the tree if you've indeed made it a Motocross holiday.
The beauty of the stocking present is it's not supposed to be expensive. A diamond ring or new iPhone gets wrapped and placed under the tree not dropped in a stocking. So if you're looking for some inexpensive gifts to make it a Motocross time of year then check out these awesome dirt bike stocking stuffers. Remember, last day for regular standard shipping for delivery by Dec. 25 is Dec. 18.
This is actually something you might want to get for yourself since some day it will be a collector's item. Microsoft is doing away with the mouse. Oh wait, that's not why.
FMF, KTM, Metal Mulisha, and Alpinestars all make iPhone cases. Now, if this is for the new iPhone under the tree then you might not want to include this gift as a stocking stuffer depending on when your family schedules the present opening.
Alpinestars seems to own the key chain trade, at least as far as what MotoSport sells, but Icon also has a belt loop keychain and Chrome makes one too.
Do kids still wear the different colored wristbands? If so, then go overboard for your Moto obsessed tween with a Knobby Tire Wristband offered in eight different colors. Maybe he'll finally start paying attention in class and stop doodling dirt bikes on his Pee-Chee. They make those anymore?
Do kids still wear the lanyard that hangs out of their pocket just begging to be grabbed by an evil passerby? If so, celebrate James Stewart's return to the track with a lanyard from Seven. Or cut your cost by more than half with one from Works Connection that works the same or save even more with the one from Thor. Baggy pants not included.
These are the coolest things on the planet, if you're into Motocross, but honestly the jury is out on whether or not they fit into a stocking. Most likely, with packaging these days, it's a no-go, however, if you break them free from their enclosed plastic showroom, and wrap them carefully, a stocking stuffer they just might make. There's a collector's item or twotwo in there.
7. Work Gloves
A must-have when working on dirt bikes so you might want to grab TwoTwo. Make that just two.
Did you even know these exist? Yep, and everyone who has bought one loves it. They're inexpensive and anyone who rides dirt bikes would love to have this in their shop.
9. Helmet Fresh
You haven't smelled anything until you smell a ripe, odorous helmet. Nothing beats a good washing but Helmet Fresh helps in between washes and works well to clean the inside after you've removed the liners.
10. Gift Card
When all else fails, a MotoSport gift card goes a long way in completing the Motocross Holidays. Besides, most people nowadays prefer complete control over any potential gifts given.
