The first part of our Christmas Gift Guide looked at the more expensive presents you can get for the cyclist in your life this Christmas. But as we all know, bigger isn't necessarily better when it comes to presents, so here are some of the smaller cycling-themed stocking fillers that will last a bit longer than a chocolate Santa.

Also check out the final part of our Christmas Gift Guide which covers what you should buy for your bike this festive season.

Tour de France books - £14.99-£35

Last year's Tour de France will live long in the memories of all of us, and there's no shortage of books to help you reminisce. Two Days in Yorkshire by Peter Cossins and Andrew Denton (£35) features over 200 of the best images from the opening days of the race in a beautiful coffee table book, which should provide plenty of inspiration to try some of the rides in DeTour de Yorkshire by Rick Robson (£20), a book of rides based on the Tour route as well as some of the best roads that Christian Prudhomme overlooked. And for a unique insider's look at this year's Tour it's hard to beat Ned Boulting's entertaining 101 Damnations: Dispatched form the 101st Tour de France (£14.99).
