    winter bike tune-ups.  a lot of shops have a package for basic repairs for the whole winter.  off the top of my head, west town bikes has a punchcard for 4 basic tuneup/check ups and rapid transit has a similar package.  cheaper gifts: personalized milk crate (find one off the street, clean it, decorate with metallic markers), reflective stickers, handmade gloves.

      I added the maintenance package from Ciclo Urbano.
