Harley-Davidson is the world's most popular brand of expensive motorcycles. Its manufacturer, Harley-Davidson, Inc. is listed in the New York Stock Exchange. In 2008, this company sold over £3 billion worth of products, including 300,000 units of motorcycles. This company capitalises on the popularity of the H-D brand by selling other products such as parts, accessories, apparel, gift cards and gift ideas. Valentine's Day is a perfect occasion for giving H-D products as gifts.
The Harley-Davidson Gift Card
A relatively new product, the Harley-Davidson gift card comes in any dollar amount from £16 to £65. By choosing this gift for Valentine's Day, the giver does not have to go through the hassle of choosing what to give, leaving it up to the receiver instead to choose what he may want. The card is accepted at H-D retail locations in the United States, has no dormancy fees nor expiration dates. The card may be personalised with a message and can be shipped directly to the recipient.
Gift Ideas for Him
A couple of links to the website of Harley-Davidson feature gift ideas for him, for her, for the kids, for the bike and the home/collectibles. The link listing gift ideas for him has five pages of 133 items including several varieties of mostly leather, and other types of jackets. Other items include caps, wallets, key chains, buckles, belts, sweatshirts, T-shirts, eye wear, vests, rain suits, jeans and shorts.
Gift Ideas for Her (and Others)
The link on "gift ideas for her" lists practically the same types of products as those "for him," but includes some hair ties, bracelets, necklaces and hip bags. It is less extensive, with only four pages and 110 items. Only 10 items are listed under gift ideas for the kids, and these are certainly not for Valentine's. But the gift listings under "home/collectibles" (48 items) and "for the bike" (130 items) contain good ideas for Valentine's Day gifts.
A Harley for Valentine's Day
It is not inconceivable for a rich lady to gift her man with a Harley-Davidson motorcycle for Valentine' Day. It doesn't have to be the £520,000 VRSCDX Night Rod Special that the Prince of Qatar bought in an auction a few years ago, since good ones can be had for much less. Neither is it inconceivable for a man madly in love with his lady to buy her an H-D, as more women are reportedly becoming H-D enthusiasts.
