I’ve just updated this post on Peloton gifts for the Peloton obsessed person aka Peloton lovers in your life. It includes ideas for various holidays, including Valentine’s Day and, if you’re planning ahead, Peloton Christmas ornament options that you can find on Etsy.
This post is for anyone looking for gifts for someone with a Peloton cycle or Tread. As a fellow pelo-addict, I can tell you this: I think I’ve found the best gifts for Peloton riders or Peloton users or gifts for Peloton lovers like me.
How do I know? Because if you only gave me Peloton gifts for my birthday or on Valentine’s Day or during the holiday season, you would make me so happy. Speaking of holidays, I’ll continue to update this blog post to reflect upcoming holidays, such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in the spring and Christmas and Chanukah in the fall/winter.
Celebrities who have a Peloton
I’m not alone in loving my Peloton. Millions of Peloton users are clipping in every day. This includes famous people, too, who might love gifts for Peloton owners.
Who are some of those famous Peloton owners? First, we know that Howard Stern has talked on his radio show about this Peloton obsession. Second, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps recently admitted he rides a Peloton. After that, Ellen DeGeneres just spoke about her Peloton bike on her show. Finally, and it’s well known that Rob Lowe and Hugh Jackman compete on the Leaderboard. Of course, all of these celebrities are riding under pseudonyms.
Gifts for Peloton owners
As someone who has written more than a dozen books related to gifts and etiquette, among other topics, I have a secret to share. One of the best ways to give someone the perfect gift is to give them something that helps them enjoy their hobbies more.
In the past I have always appreciated any gifts that are dog-related. Being a dog mom and all, I love anything that helps me love spending more time with my dogs.
Best gifts for Peloton riders
But since the Peloton came into our life in 2016, you can add Peloton gifts to my wish list. Perhaps you’ve read my review of the must-have Peloton bike accessories.
I know you can get some great ideas for gifts for Peloton riders in that article. This is especially true if you’re looking for cycling gadget gifts like the best or coolest Peloton heart rate monitor. I’ve got tons of ideas for gifts for someone with a Peloton.
However, in this Peloton gift guide, I’m taking a slightly different approach. This time around I’m highlighting fun, quirky cycling gifts along with practical ideas that are also unique and innovative. I believe I’ve pulled together some of the best gifts for Peloton riders. If you’re looking for Peloton milestone gifts or the best gifts for Peloton users, this list can help you, for sure!
In addition, if you’re looking for gift ideas in a certain budget range, this post on gifts under $5, $10, $25, etc. can help.
Gift ideas for all kinds of Peloton users
For starters, I’ll offer ideas on ladies cycling gifts. Also, I’ll suggest bicycle themed gifts for men. I’m confident you’ll love my suggestions on gifts for Peloton users and riders.
Finally, those of you searching for gift ideas for a Peloton rider, be sure you’re spelling Peloton correctly in your search. This will help you narrow down the right gift ideas.
Here are the spellings I’ve seen:
Just so you know it is P-E-L-O-T-O-N.
Peloton gift ideas
In this guide to the best gifts for Peloton riders or Peloton lovers, I’ve broken out ideas based on a theme. For example, I know that many Peloton users (myself include) find inspiration in instructor quotes.
So, these instructor quote can be, well, inspiring, such as “Be present” (Ally Love).
Some are simply silly yet they can be motivational, too. Take Cody Rigsby. Paraphrased:
I’ve tried to find Peloton gift ideas that will really resonate with Peloton lovers like myself.
Meal kits that Peloton users recommend
Many people get a Peloton to help them lose weight. As I learned the hard way–and until I signed up with the Noom weight loss program–you can exercise for hours a day, but if you’re putting crap food in your mouth, you won’t lose weight.
One of the way to start cooking healthier is to sign up for a meal kit service. Well, certain ones that don’t have you preparing dinners with macronutrients for an entire day, let alone a meal.
I asked around on social media what the meal kits were that Peloton users recommend. Here’s what I found out–and which ones I would recommend giving as a gift to a Peloton lover you know who may want to try out meal kits.
Freshly meal kit
Peloton users liked Freshly because they could get meals under 500 calories. If you use code LAUNCH15 at checkout, you can get $15 off your first four meals–or $60 off total.
In addition, you can buy someone a Freshly gift card. Keep in mind that you’re not giving a gift card, per se. Yes, it’s a gift. But here’s how it works.
You’ll choose the number of meals you want to gift them–and you can use the discount code above to save money–and then Freshly will email them a code to redeem or allow you to print it out and hand to them!
Hello Fresh meal kit
I wrote about our love for Hello Fresh in this blog post about the best meal kit companies. It makes total sense that this would be a meal kit that Peloton users would love and recommend.
Right now, Hello Fresh has a Black Friday deal going on. Get $90 off including free shipping on your first box. This offer is good through 12/6/20.
You can also give Hello Fresh meal kit gift cards in a variety of denominations.
Sun Basket meal kit
We tried out Sun Basket when we had vegetarian friends coming to visit. Now, we’re vegetarian ourselves. Technically, pescatarians.
Peloton riders who don’t eat meat have told me that they love the meals they get with Sun Basket. Another bonus: everything in your Sun Basket box is certified USDA organic. So, another way of eating healthy.
This link will help you save $35 on Sun Basket. Here’s another bonus to giving Sun Basket: they’re now selling fresh and ready meals that you just heat up. So, if your gift recipient isn’t a big cook, this might be a way to give them a meal kit gift without the hassle.
Clothing, apparel and Peloton shirt gifts
The Peloton boutique used to offer a line of Peloton apparel featuring instructor quotes on the clothing. This would have been a great gift for Peloton rider or gift for Peloton lover. But they don’t anymore. So I’ve had to turn to Amazon and Etsy to find Peloton inspired apparel with these instructor quotes.
I’ve done my best to highlight clothing, quotes and other goodies inspired by some of Peloton’s most popular instructors:
I’d also like to add to the list my favorites for inspriational quotes or sentiments. That would be Jenn Sherman–“Just F*cking Do It “(#JFDI is the hashtag Peloton users put in their leaderboard names). Also, Christine D’Ercole–“What if you had to.”
Have you seen my newest blog post devoted entirely to gift ideas that feature Peloton instructor quotes? I hope you’ll check it out.
Quotes, sayings and Peloton inspiration
It’s true that the shirts I’ve included above all have Peloton quotes, sayings and inspiration. But they’re not the only gifts for Peloton lovers that you can buy.
I’ve tracked down Peloton wall art and decor that also include quotes or sayings or other general inspiration that will resonation with a Peloton user.
Some of these feature words from favorite instructors–Robin Arzon, Ally Love, Cody Rigsby and Christine D’Ercole, just to name a few.
Peloton gift humor
Let’s be honest. Even when you’re working your a$$ off on your Peloton, there are still moments of Peloton humor. Take instructor Denis Morton and his (what I like to call) dad jokes. Jenn Sherman always makes me laugh with her potty mouth. But perhaps the funniest of them all is Cody Rigsby.
In this section on the best gifts for Peloton riders, I’ve focused on a handful of funny presents that capture either instructor humor or “funny” things a true Peloton enthusiast will appreciate. This includes some more Peloton clothing and one Peloton mug.
Decorate your Peloton area
One of the joys of owning the bike is decorating your Peloton area. You can do it with stickers, decals and more. This includes your leaderboard name. In fact, I found a number of Leaderboard inspired wall decals on Etsy.
You can even get a Peloton screen cover or screen protector for your Peloton bike. I found one featuring your favorite Pelo-saying or instructor hashtag.
There is also a Peloton towel for your bike–not you but your bike. It protects the chain guard from your sweat. In addition, you can order cute little clips to hang your Peloton bike shoes off the back of your bike. This Peloton shoe hanger is on Etsy.
Finally, I’ve got ideas for a Peloton shelf and storage. In my Peloton area, I love these metal mesh file baskets. They can hold so much and help keep things organized and neat.
I get a lot of questions about shoe storage options. Chances are, if you’ve got a Peloton lover on your gift list, they may need help with shoe storage, too. That’s why the shelves and shoe racks I’ve highlighted below could be a great gift to give a Peloton rider.
Laptop tray for Peloton
With so many people working from home these days, many are turning their Pelotons into workstations. Well, guess what? There are products like laptop trays that make it so easy to do that. And wouldn’t that be a great gift to give the work-at-home Peloton user? Some ideas below.
Peloton inspired home decor
There are plenty of people on Etsy and elsewhere selling Peloton-inspired home decor. Oftentimes this includes the Peloton logo.
I’m sure that logo is trademarked, which is why I won’t be including anything like that in this Peloton gift guide. However, there are other ways to showcase Peloton-inspired home decor without violating trademark. Here are a few of my suggestions for the best gifts for Peloton riders in the category of home decor.
Other gift ideas for Peloton riders
In researching this article, I came across a number of gift ideas that didn’t really fit into one category. First, it could have been Peloton gear for your car. Or, how to DIY a Peloton cake. Yes, it seems that people want to have a Peloton cake. Makes sense. People like to celebrate Peloton milestones.
Maybe you ended up on this post because you were looking for Peloton mileston gifts. Finally, they even have a word for the anniversary of your first ride. It’s called a Pelo-versary.
Peloton milestone gifts
Also, when you ride at a Peloton store for a milestone, you’ll often get balloons that “spell out” the number milestone you’ve just reached. You know, like 100, 500, etc.
So I’ve included those gigantic, Mylar, shiny, metallic balloons in case you want to give t hem as a Peloton century ride gift. These are the ones that Peloton riders tend to share in their Instagram feed or on their Facebook page after they’ve celebrated their century ride or another milestone.
What do you get for Peloton milestones
There are two ways you get Peloton milestones gifts. First, you get a free t-shirt when you hit your 100th or century ride on Peloton. So think of it as your free gift from Peloton. I explain all about the free century t-shirt in this blog post about what Peloton milestones are.
Second, you can buy Peloton milestone gifts to decorate your bike. I’ve found some really cute ones on Etsy, which I’ve highlighted below.
Finally, during those milestones, when you ride live, you often get a shoutout from the instructor. So there is a shout-out gift in this list, too.
Gifts for Pelo Parents
I just finished writing a new blog post about Peloton for kids. It gives advice for letting your children and teens use your Peloton bike or Peloton Tread. And it got me thinking: there has to be gifts for Peloton users that are parents. Sure enough, there are.
When I searched on Etsy for Peloton kids, I came across a handful of great gifts–mostly clothing–for Pelo parents. Check them out below.
Best gifts for Peloton riders Christmas stocking stuffers/Chanukah gifts
If you’re looking for small Peloton gifts, here are some quick ideas for Peloton bike gifts to add to your list.
Some of these have appeared in my popular post on the best Peloton bike accessories. But they’re so good, I think, that they’re worth mentioning again.
These make perfect Christmas gifts, Chanukah gifts or any kind of holiday gift.
Happy birthday Peloton
As I mentioned, if someone wanted to wish me a happy birthday by giving me a Peloton gift, I’d be thrilled. Any of the ideas listed in this blog post would make a great birthday gift for a Peloton lover.
At the same time, you may want to wish them a happy birthday with a Peloton-inspired birthday card. There is a talented artist on Etsy that has created a line of Happy Birthday cards with a different Peloton instructor as their muse.
Peloton gift ideas for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day
According to market research, the average age of a Peloton owner is 46. Suffice it to say, people in that age bracket are more likely than not going to be mothers and fathers. And what do the children of moms and dads need to do each spring? Buy Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts.
Therefore, these Pelomoms and Pelodads would most likely love to receive a Peloton-themed Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift. I’ve found a few, which I’ve highlighted below.
Fun, snarky cycling attire for women
I just discovered this company Simply Workout. They have adorable workout clothing, including a handful of cycling attire with fun, snarky saysing on them. I hope you’ll check them out.
How to gift a Peloton subscription
Wondering if you can give the gift of Peloton digital subscription? Well, Peloton doesn’t make it easy but I finally figured it out. This is how you give the gift of a Peloton subscription.
First, if you read my review of the Peloton digital app, then you know you can try it for 30 days for free. Next, if you continue your subscription, you’ll pay just $12.99 a month.
So, what if you want to share the gift of a Peloton subscription with someone who doesn’t have a bike or Tread? You can do that through an Apple Gift Card.
A gift card for a Peloton gift subscription
Basically, this is how it works. Since you download the Peloton app from the Apple App Store, you can “gift” someone a Peloton subscription if you give them an Apple gift card. You can buy Apple gift cards at many retailers, including online at Amazon.
You can determine how much you want to put on the Apple gift card–enough for a whole year of Peloton or just a few months. From what I can tell, Apple gift cards start at $50.
Then, you give the person the gift card with a note that you’d love to share the gift of a Peloton subscription with them. Maybe you want to slip some Peloton apparel in with the gift card. So, can you gift a Peloton subscription? Yes, using this Apple gift card hack.
Unfortunately, you cannot control if the gift recipient uses the Apple gift card to pay for a Peloton digital subscription. Also, unfortunately, you cannot use a Peloton gift card to pay for a Peloton gift subscription. However, you can use a Peloton gift card to buy Peloton apparel from the Peloton boutique–online or in person at one of the mall showrooms.
