Are you looking for Peloton gifts for the pelo-obsessed person in your life for Valentine’s Day? Or 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.
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.
I’m not alone in loving my Peloton. Millions of Peloton users are clipping in every day. This includes famous people, too. Howard Stern has talked on his radio show about this Peloton obsession. Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps recently admitted he rides a Peloton. 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.
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.

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.

Here’s another gift for peloton rider idea: a trip that includes a stay in one of the Peloton hotels.
Peloton gift ideas
In this guide to the best gifts for Peloton riders, 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:
In other words let’s all put things in perspective and get the workout done.
I’ve tried to find Peloton gift ideas that will really resonate with Peloton lovers like myself.
Clothing, apparel and Peloton shirt gifts
The Peloton boutique used to offer a line of Peloton instructor quotes clothing. This would have been a great gift for peloton rider. But they don’t anymore. So I’ve had to turn to Amazon and Etsy to find clothing 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.”
Believe it or not, there’s even Peloton nail polish from a company called Emma. How appropriate with Emma Lovewell being a Peloton instructor.
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 Peloton gifts 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. 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.
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. 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. They even call the anniversary of your first ride a Pelo-versary.
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. 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. (FYI, I’m about to hit my 800th ride though I have no plans for either cake or balloons.)
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.
Best gifts for Peloton riders stocking stuffers/Chanukah gifts
If you’re looking for small Peloton gifts to use as stocking stuffers or to give over the eight nights of Chanukah, here are some quick ideas 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.
