Struggling to think of gift ideas for the car lover in your life? We’ve got you covered with our pick of the best gifts for car fans – from t-shirts to toolkits, and everything in between.
Finding gifts for car enthusiasts can be tricky. But if motoring is your other half’s passion, there are plenty of Christmas gift ideas out there, and we’re not just talking about the usual tools and maintenance gear.
To help you find the perfect gift for your car fan, here are 8 of our favourite gift ideas from the world of motoring.
1. Echo Auto
Enhance their driving experience with the gift of in-car AI, Echo Auto. Amazon’s handy smart device puts Alexa to use for drivers, allowing for seamless and safe control of devices using just a voice.
Echo Auto has all the features of a normal Echo device, including full voice-assistant technology, so it’s handy to have while driving. Ask for directions, traffic updates and weather reports on the move, without taking your hands off the wheel.
2. Track Day Experience
What could be more appropriate for the car lover in your life than an exhilarating track day experience? Available at racetracks across the country, track day experiences give the recipient the chance to take a supercar for a spin.
One of our favourites is the Top Gear Test Track Experience, which lets budding racers have a go in the Reasonably Priced Car. Visit the Trackdays website for a full range of driving experiences and gift vouchers.
3. Front and Rear Dashcams
Dashcams are now one of the most popular car accessories on the market, and lots of people wouldn’t leave their drive without one. And the good news is, they’ve come down in price a lot since they were first introduced, with lots of different options available.
Nextbase is one of the big-name brands in dashcams, but even places like Halfords now offer their own non-branded versions. We’d opt for front and rear dashcams as standard, so you’re fully covered on the road.
4. All-in-one Toolkit
If your spouse fancies themselves as a budding driveway mechanic (or if they are indeed a real mechanic), a new, all-in-one toolkit will always make a great gift. We especially like this 399 Piece Ultimate Toolkit, which has everything they need to get the job done with ease.
Packed with everything from sockets to screwdrivers, this immense toolkit will make light work of even the fiddliest jobs beneath the bonnet. And it isn’t just car stuff this kit will come in handy for; with a spirit level, tape measure and wall fastenings, it’s ideal for DIYing around the house, too.
5. Pressure Washer
Though it might not sound it, a pressure washer is an exciting pressie for car fans, giving them the freedom to clean their prized wheels as often as they like. There are lots of pressure washers out there, but we like the Karcher K3 Home Pressure Washer for its affordable price and cleaning head attachments.
Plus, it’s a Karcher, a brand synonymous with quality, so chances are it’ll be the first and last pressure washer they need.
6. Race Circuit Wall Art
Do you know someone who’s mad about motorsport? If so, we have the perfect gift idea. Etsy has a range of gifts that are perfect for race fans, including these rather cool race circuit wall hangers.
Available in different sizes, you can buy a design of almost any race circuit in the world, whether it’s Silverstone, Monaco or Spa. We think this is an ideal gift for the driving fan who’s already got a well-equipped garage.
7. De-Icer Mitt
De-icing a car is never fun, and it’s even worse when you don’t have a pair of gloves to hand. That’s why, if you’re in need of stocking fillers for your car-mad relation, we think this de-icer mitt makes the perfect pressie for those frosty mornings.
Keeping their hands warm while they’re busy scraping, this one-size-fits-all de-icer mitt features a sturdy scraper blade, for quickly freeing up frozen windows. Use it alongside Simoniz De-Icer to get rid of ice in half the time.
8. Manufacturer T-shirt
A lot of car fans are happy to wear their motoring affiliations with pride. If your partner is one of them, be sure to look around for t-shirts or other apparel that let them showcase their motoring interests.
Whether it’s Ford, Ferrari, BMW or Alfa Romeo, there are loads of options available when it comes to motoring-related t-shirts and clothing. In fact, we think you’d be surprised just how much merchandise is out there, with some brands offering everything from cufflinks to aftershave.
