Mopeds are two-wheel scooters with low-displacement engines; their riders enjoy an economical form of transportation with a low environmental impact, since many moped models can travel up to 100 miles on a single gallon of gasoline. Gifts for a moped scooter rider, whether he's a beginner or an experienced rider, include useful, fun, informative and decorative items.
A Year's Subscription to a Scooter Magazine
The gift of any of a variety of scooter magazines in the traditional paper version or online format is a present that will last all year. A new issue arrives each month, containing content such as reviews of classic scooters like Vespas and Lambrettas, as well as new models, moped and scooter-related products and news of upcoming events for scooter and moped riders. Such gift subscriptions should be especially appreciated by moped and scooter riders living abroad and in rural areas without easy access to bookstores and far from local clubs. Classic Scooterist Scene magazine offers mailed, online and downloadable subscriptions for £16.20 a year. You can also view Classic Scooterist Scene magazine using an electronic book reader.
'Sixties Mod Scooter' Hooded Sweatshirt
The warm, navy-blue "Sixties Mod Scooter" hooded sweatshirt is handy for chilly days spent riding or staying at home. It's made from heavy fabric in a 90 per cent/10 per cent cotton-polyester blend with tough set-in sleeves and armholes with double needle stitching. The retro-style design in white, below the left shoulder, features a 1960s scooter in the aerodynamic, bulbous "mod" style named for the British group who popularised riding moped scooters in the 1960s. This gift was available from Zazzle.com in late 2010 in adult sizes from small to XXX large. It cost £29.20.
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Motor Scooters
"The Complete Idiot's Guide to Motor Scooters" is a book in the well-known Penguin "Complete Idiot's Guide" book series. It's also an entertaining and comprehensive guide to buying, selling, maintaining and customising moped scooters written by the editorial staff of ScooterWorld Magazine, including senior staff editor Sandra Carr. This book is an especially useful gift for new riders, while experienced owners should still find it a "good read," with much useful information in the model reference tables. In late 2010, this inexpensive present cost £4.60 from Barnes and Noble.
Scooter Charm Necklace
A scooter charm necklace is an original item of jewellery for the moped scooter rider in your life. It features a ½-inch-tall miniature pewter scooter with a choice of either a Swarovski crystal birthstone or a white pearl and hangs from a 18-inch-long silver-plated cable-style chain. The necklaces are individually made for each order, so remember to allow between 7 and 10 days for this process, if delivery is required for by a particular date. In late 2010, the necklace was available for £11.0 from Madison Craft Studio.
