The sister in law is getting wed next month. Both her and her betrothed are super keen cyclists. Struggling with ideas for wedding presents that aren’t naff or useless, doesn’t have to be cycling related but outdoorsy would be good too. They’ve lived together for a while so don’t need house stuff and to be fair haven’t asked for anything as they are at that stage of life where they buy what they want anyway.
A friend helped out massively at my wedding last year and we used http://www.marksanderson.artfor a custom piece of work as a thank you. I met him at the cycle show a few months earlier, top bloke and amazing work.
You should commission a one off piece of artwork featuring the two of them on their bikes in their favourite riding spot. If only there was a forum regular who did such things, who even did mates rates for fellow STWers?Hmmmmm….
We sell these . They are by a lady called Susie West.
With the best will in the world I don’t get that at all. The Ventoux one from Binners is instantly recognisable, the Box Hill one appears to be a cartoon drawing of a hill, the corners of which bear no resemblance to the real thing, with some writing on it. One of those things that a well meaning non-cyclist would get me and I’d be annoyed because it wasn’t accurate. Like birthday cards with drive trains on the wrong side or something. It would be better even if you reversed it, the two ‘switchbacks’ on the Zig Zags being a left then a right. Anywho…
The Campag corksrew is lovely, less novelty than things like the Park toilet roll holder/pizza cutter, it’s actually a really nice ‘thing’, presented well.
