Gift Ideas for the Motorcycle Camper

  • Camp Mug: for Whiskey, Ramen, Coffee, or Ice Cold Beer! …or margaritas, or whatever your heart desires.
  • Sea to Summit Coffee Dripper: Lightweight, compressible coffee dripper for that special someone who needs their caffeine first thing in the morning.
  • Headlamp: Whether you’ve attempted to set up your tent in the dark with a phone in one hand and tent poles in the other, or have just stumbled through a campground at night with no light source, a headlamp is a simple yet effective game changer.
  • Jetboil MicroMo: A camp kitchen that will fit in your saddlebag. The MicroMo is the smallest, most versatile Jetboil available, allowing you to quickly boil water or cook food.
  • Big Agnes Copper Spur or Fly Creek Bikepacking Tents: Small enough to mount to your handlebars, the Bikepacking series tents from Big Agnes free up a ton of space on the bike without compromising the quality standards this outdoor company is reputable for.
  • Rokform Wireless Speaker: Rugged, Waterproof, Magnetic, and sure to liven up whatever party you’re having under the stars. PS: Use code “RIDETOFOOD” for 25% off your entire purchase at checkout on the Rokform webstore!
  • Camping Utensils
  • Smartwool Base Layers: Whether you’re riding in chilly weather or camping in it, a quality set of merino wool base layers are guaranteed to keep you warm on your adventures.
  • Hammock: ENO makes some of the top hammock gear in the game. This complete hammock bundle comes with everything you need, rain or shine…or should we say stars?
  • Pillow: Some people like to sleep on their dirty socks and leathers, but you could throw this in their stocking in lower their chances of pink eye.
  • Travel Towels: If they’re the type of person to ride to swim or take a shower at a truck stop, a highly absorbent, compact, quick-drying travel towel will be a welcome addition to their travel gear.

Gift Ideas For the MotoVlogger & Content Creator

Pin me for later!
  • GoPro Hero 9: The ultimate action camera that’s small enough to throw in your pocket.
  • GoPro Max: Take the content creation to the next level with a 360 camera. This is how I get all the crazy “spin” shots while riding. No swivel mounts required.
  • Handlebar Mount: My most used mount. Works well on engine guards as well as handlebars and risers.
  • Removable Helmet Chin Mount or a Dual Mount for Front and Side Helmet Action
  • Suction Cup Mount: Great for touring bikes with windshields
  • Adhesive Mounts: Can you really ever have too many extra stickies laying around?
  • Micro SD Memory Cards + SD Memory Cards: Whether they use a drone, GoPro, or DSLR, chances are extra memory cards will always come in handy. 64-128gb is the perfect amount of storage for any device.
  • Small Camera Travel Tripod: Great for phones, go pros, or small mirrorless DSLR cameras.
  • Battery Pack: Keep your camera gear charged on the go without pulling off your motorcycle’s battery. This 32,000 mAh battery pack can be super handy on multi-day trips where you can’t get to an outlet but need to keep the content rolling.
  • Camera Travel Tripod: For the serious content creator in your life! This is ideal for someone with a DSLR camera that needs more options than a small tripod can provide.
  • Extra Batteries + Dual Battery Charger for GoPro Hero or Max: Be sure to note that the GoPro 7, 8, and 9, and Max all use different types of batteries. But, having a charger and extra battery or two on hand is always helpful!

Gift Ideas for the Motorcycle Tourer

  • Sena Bluetooth 50R: Talk with other riders in the group, listen to music, or answer calls on the go. If that special someone already has a Sena, perhaps hook them up with Upgraded Speakers if they have a compatible Sena Device!
  • Bell Race Star: Whether you’re riding around town or blasting miles across the country, the Race Star comes high on the recommendation list. This is my favorite helmet for long distance riding.
  • Butler Maps: Whether you’re staying on or off road, these waterproof maps provide great ride routes to individual regions with difficulty ratings and other helpful info.
  • Earplugs: Sometimes it’s nice to cancel out the wind noise and save your hearing from potential damage on a long day’s ride.
  • National Parks Pass: The best gift you can give someone who loves visiting our National Parks!
  • Travel Cubes: Staying organized on trips can really make a difference. These storage cubes are great on and off the bike.
  • Fuel Reserve Bottles: We all know that person that runs out of gas on every trip.
  • Water Storage: Camelbak Water Reservoir or a Nalgene Water Bottle
  • Cargo nets: Keep your gear stored safely with new nets for the upcoming riding season.
  • Dry Bags: Nobody likes soggy gear on long trips!
  • Battery Tender: While winterizing our bikes isn’t always fun, it’s nice to be able to make sure the battery stays healthy while we wait for warmer weather.
  • Rain Gear: The one piece of gear every rider wishes they had packed on a long-distance trip.

    My dad is a motorcycle enthusiast, which is why I’m thinking of gifting him with a helmet. Well, thank you for sharing here that a headlamp will be a perfect present for his campground night as well. It’s also a good thing that you shared here the advantage of giving him Smartwool based layers that he may wear on his cold road trips.

      Headlamps and Smartwools are great gift ideas!! Glad it helped 🙂
