Best gifts I had were the little things that made it easier for me...
The shorter gear lever, my multi-tool, the cubby-bag for all my things, those long tyre levers that make life easier for tyre repairs, the little spray bottle with soap and the cloth for cleaning my visor, my locking cable so I can leave my helmet on the bike, my buff, and it may sound daft, but that hairbrush that pushes into itself, the stick of sunscreen that lives on the bike, the pot of CAMEX lip stuff... lots of little things that work well! 
They call me Judy or Judes...

BUFF maak nou buffs wat UV resistent is en daar is pienkes, jy kan vir my een koop vir Crismas :ricky:

How about decent riding pants, like the Xkulcha? I believe safety first, also like the idea of the riding course, as that also increases safety and it's a weekend away... 2 birds with one stone... :ricky:

Sadlly a good pair of gloves will set u back the entire budget...good stuff can be so pricey, that's why I still believe a riding course is the best value for money.

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)

Sjoe!  Jy het sowaar vir hom n goeie lysie gegee. 

Just a suggestion, weet nie hoeveel die goed kos nie.  Wat van a communicator set?  Dan kan jy altyd met haar chat as julle gaan ry en haar mooi help as sy bietjie benoud raak by tegniese plekke. 
Weet dis dan meer van n "julle" geskenk maar danl werk dit goed vir julle.

Die training course sal egter vir haar die wereld se goed doen.

Never underestimate the power of kindness!
