hm..buy her a ADA dp1 riding course.....more value than any other gift
or - a nice rainsuit,
 or gloves, a lekker buff...
.or have a special personalised sticker made for her bike or helmet....u can also buy  the details to girlyfy her bike, if she is that type.....
really expensive sox _the best buy i ever made was my BMW sox.
knee brace/guard (so she can wear it with her normal pants untill she gets riding pants)
a multitool - or a toolroll for her bike.
(these are all the things i would have liked....she might be different)

Thanks Laurika,

I do like the idea of a riding course.

And a pink buff.

Tankbag if she rides her own bike... We always need space to put our shit!

Otherwise, like Laurika said... gloves, buff, etc etc...

i'd say decent medical aid,  but it's a bit more than that,  and a monthly investment.
