OUT OF IDEAS FOR THESE HOLIDAYS?
HERE'S THE NGNM GIFT GUIDE
Each time December rolls around, you may be hit by a familiar sense of dread when it comes to sourcing gifts that hit the spot, won’t break the bank or contribute to landfill, right. Here at NGNM, we’ve done some of the hard work for you and curated a list of thoughtful, functional and worthy gifts for 2021 and beyond. If you know us—and by the looks of it, you do—you’ll know that we’re big into sustainability, so expect these pieces to last.
Best enjoyed fireside for post-ride feels
Published in 1997 but just as relevant today, Caroline Myss’ book entitled Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing has shaped how we understand our mental and physical wellbeing, unlocking a deeper perception of how our bodies react to stress and putting forward the seven stages to pass through on the way to spiritual healing. For NGNM founder Milly, it’s been a pivotal read.
Who doesn’t love a handmade ceramic mug, ideally topped to the brim with something soul-warming (and anti-inflammatory) like a turmeric latte whipped up with the milk of your choice? Say no more. This is our personal favourite but there’s probably a local artisan making them nearby, so peruse your local craft stores and support female businesses.
Our Mantra sweatshirt has all the feels, whether you’re a lifelong cyclist or not. A super luxuriant fabric with fleece inner, we don’t expect this item to see the inside of the recipient’s wardrobe for long. From under the tree to sitting at your Christmas dinner table in one statement-making swoop, we can’t wait to see our mantra broadcast around the world.
Acts of Care
After years of gifting people things, it could be time to approach Christmas in a new way. What about the gift of small loans, whereby the recipient can pick a small business of their choice in an undeveloped country and loan the capital to a budding entrepreneur to bring their vision to life, earn a living, and support their family? We’re big fans of initiatives like Lend With Care and once your first loan can has been paid back, you can then re-invest in another rural enterprise. Gifts don’t get more long-term or rewarding than this. (Personal note: gifted one five+ years ago and it’s still going strong)
For the cyclist that embraces bad weather:
It’s for good reason that cyclists swear by layering when it comes to cool-weather riding. And it’s no hype either—our Mid-Season Jacket that just dropped in a stunning forest green is designed to elevate your performance as the temperature drops. Windproof with a reliable DWR treatment on the front, lightweight and pretty damn stylish, this is a versatile and smart riding jacket that you can rely on to bring warmth and durable protection for consecutive seasons, especially when lined with our favorite thermal layers, like the Primaloft Fleece Jersey or the Merino Thermal Jersey. (And that’s a promise).

Say it with Polka Dots! The Winter Foulard
If you’re buying for someone who is forever worrying about catching a chill, look no further than our ultra-luxe winter foulard. Providing essential neck protection—one of the most vulnerable spots in your body that warrants an additional layer—we’ve designed this item to fulfil our dreams and that is exactly what it’ll do for your recipient too. Coming in three prints and created with a premium Italian fabric, sourced especially for this versatile piece, it makes a great gift.
Winter Foulard - Polka Dots
Poly-Merino Warmth - Thermal Jersey
Merino is the wunderkind of winter and for good reason. Designed in Italy and perfect for beating the cold, this Performance Merino Thermal Jersey is a technical piece that merits a spot on their Christmas list—and yours. We’ve elevated the natural performance properties of the merino by blending it with a custom polyester blend and form-fitting construction, resulting in peerless warmth, breathability, fit and moisture management. Perhaps it’s time you treat yourself this Christmas?

Full Leg Protection - Performance Winter Tights
Okay, this is it. The big one. Expect an enthusiastic response from the committed cyclist in your life when they unwrap our brand new Performance Winter Tights, designed in Italy and built with the proven thermal and windproof fabric as found in our Winter Shorts. Smart panelling on the legs and thighs blocks out the wind chill, while the durable DWR treatment repels rain and road spray. Comfort comes courtesy of our popular custom chamois and the bib construction is all about the female form. Oh, and did we mention minimal seams to enhance comfort and an anatomical cut through the legs? Winter, we’re ready for you.
