Gifts For Car Lovers
Looking for inspiration on what to give a lover of cars? Or even looking to treat yourself to something. Check out this list of gift ideas and see if you can find the right one to suit you.
If you have ever wanted to get behind the wheel of a race car and try it for yourself then track days are for you. A track day allows for you to drive some of the world’s most exclusive and expensive cars, if only for a few hours. There are a variety of track days available for a variety of cars and manufacturers. I went to one when I was younger (above), and I felt incredible zooming around the track at high speed.
There is one from Renault which allows you 10 unaccompanied laps around a track in the Formula Renault 2.0 or if one car is too little, there are some track days that give you a taste of a few different cars that you would never have dreamed of driving before.
This is a great recommendation for any car lovers that you know or even as a treat for yourself. It is a great experience for any driver and a true pleasure to be a part of.
Lego have a beautiful range of cars, both vintage and new, to build and collect. If you are a fan of the vintage, you can build a Volkswagen Camper Van, an Aston Martin DB5 or even a classic Ford Mustang. For those lovers of faster cars, Lego offer some amazing configurations such as the Bugatti Chiron, a Lamborghini Sian or a Porsche 911.
Fun to build and great to look at once completed, these Lego cars are great gift for any car lover who also wants something to do to keep them busy!
Probably not for everyone, car manuals are for those people who enjoy a trip to the past. These books often have incredible pictures of cars that most people have always dreamed about owning, as well as an extensive history of them through the ages.
There are a variety of car manuals out there from racing car manuals that explore racing events like F1, to supercar manuals that explore the art of creating a supercar. Maybe you like a specific manufacturer, like Ferrari or Porsche, for which there are a few books out there to sate your explorative historical urge, and for those classic car lovers there are a few books out there to sate your thirst.
This is a great recommendation for those who enjoy a sit-down, a cup of tea/coffee and a read.
Car Boot Organiser
Car boots, these days, are generally just big, open spaces – perfect for those family trips that need four or five suitcases to be piled up high but not so great for a trip to the shops. There have been multiple times in my history where one sharp corner too many turns those neatly packed bags into a new modern art display.
A car boot organiser gets rid of this worry; helping keep shopping bags upright and other items neatly packed. It is a recommendation for any driver who likes their car organised, clean and neat.
Keep It Tidy Gadgets:
Know someone who needs to keep their car a little cleaner and tidier? This may be the gift for them. Instead of leaving, bottles and wrappers dotted around your car, waiting for it to fill up before you do anything about it, a car bin keeps all that rubbish in one place and allows for easy emptying. It is quite a practical gift idea that may be something you buy if you want them to use it.
Another practical gift idea, the cordless vacuum is a quick and handy cleaning device to help clean up any wayward crumbs and dust from around your car. This handy little device picks up debris, pet hair and other dirt particles with ease. It’s easy to use as well, as it is lightweight and easy to carry. There is no need to worry about an external power source and cordless allows for cleaning on the go as well. Its small size allows it to clean every part of the car.
Car Cleaning Kit
For those car lovers who like to keep their vehicle looking like new, a car cleaning kit is one of the most practical and useful gifts around. It depends on the cleaning kit but most kits will include: a protectant against UV rays, a wash & wax product, a tyre protectant and glass wipes. It is the ultimate utility belt for keeping a car shiny and new.
