If you’ve got a car lover in your life, you know what to do when an anniversary, birthday, or holiday comes up. You understand that a car gift is in order, but unless you’re a car junkie, you may not know exactly what to get. Here are ten foolproof gifts for car enthusiasts.
1. Drive a Racecar
Take your car lover to drive a real racecar at the Texas Motor Speedway. This is the ultimate experience for those that love to go fast. It’s one thing to watch on TV and another to actually drive a NASCAR racecar!
2. Model Car Kit
If your car enthusiast loves old rides, consider a model car kit. While they’d probably prefer to be working on the real thing, not everyone has the time or money to restore vintage cars, so a model is the next best thing.
3. Polarized Sunglasses
Anyone that loves driving will love a stylish pair of polarized sunglasses. These are perfect for the road because they protect your eyes, give you better clarity, better contrast, and help prevent eye strain.
4. Dashboard Camera
Everyone can appreciate a dashcam. You never know what is going to happen on the road. It can be helpful in the case of a crash or if their vehicle is involved in a hit-and-run.
5. Engraved Shot Glasses
There are shot glass and even pint glass sets etched with older car models. Or, you can find someone that does glass etching and get your own custom set made.
6. Detailing Kit
Your car lover probably enjoys keeping their vehicle looking its best. So, make their job easier with a detailing kit. Even if they already have a lot of detailing tools, you can never have too many. Look for a recommended set with professional-grade products and accessories.
7. Portable Vacuum
Portable, handheld vacuums are likely the most practical gift you could get. A car lover will appreciate this, as they can quickly clean up messes without having to whip out all the detailing equipment.
8. Car Money
If you’re not convinced by some of these gift ideas, or you know that your enthusiast is saving up to buy that new Ford for sale or is restoring an older car, giving them cash isn’t a bad idea. And it doesn’t have to be thousands of dollars. Any little bit toward their hobby and passion will be appreciated.
9. Power Washer
Power washers can get expensive, so look for one specifically made for car enthusiasts. You can even find an electric power washer that is powerful enough for that perfect wash without you spending hundreds or thousands.
10. Artwork of Their Ride
You can custom order a watercolor, graphite drawing, or even photographs of their favorite car. If they own it, then a personalized version with all the same details is in order. They will proudly hang it in the living room for the rest of forever.
Watch It Work
As you can see, there are plenty of great gift ideas for that car lover in your life. So try one out on your next special occasion and see how you make them smile!
