You’re struggling for gift ideas for your partner, but you know they’re one of those people who love their cars. But, what does a motoring enthusiast really look for in a gift? And, what do they really need? Small upgrades to their existing car are a good starting point as is anything that will help with upkeep. And, car enthusiasts don’t just love their personal vehicles. Most love anything to do with them, whether it’s model cars or being around the race track.
Here’s seven gift ideas for people who love their cars that will get you thinking.
Petrolheads love to make a loud noise, whether it’s revving an engine or blasting a song out as they droptop along the motorway. Provide them with the perfect soundtrack to a smooth ride with an improved car stereo. 2-channel amplifiers can easily power a single pair of speakers and give their sound some extra oomph.
Car care kit
There’s nothing car lovers enjoy more than keeping their pride and joy spick and span. There’s any range of products out there that motoring enthusiasts can use to keep their car looking like it’s fresh from the lot. Detailing wax, specialized glass wash, shampoos, polish, new chamois leather cloths: all these things will help them buff it up to a luxurious shine.
All petrolheads love being able to keep their cars clean on the inside as well the out. But, getting rid of dirt, hair and crumbs with a conventional upright vacuum cleaner can be a challenge. Make their job easy with a maneuverable, handheld hoover with strong suction. There are models on the market that are designed specifically for car interiors.
These are the Ferraris and Lamborghinis of the footwear world. Luxury driving shoes are specifically designed for people who want to feel at one with their machine. The thin soles make for even contact with the pedals, and they’ll love the Italian design.
Petrolheads will relish the chance to get behind the wheel of something with some serious horsepower. Nothing will give them quite the same rush as hurling an expensive car around a circuit at high speeds or tagging along for the ride with a rally driver.
It’s no secret that a lot of car enthusiasts are big children, and model cars are toys for the discerning adult. Getting them a miniature of their favorite car is a winning gift idea, especially if they get to build it themselves. They’ll love the opportunity to put their knowledge of car anatomy to good use.
Some people prefer driving the car themselves, but there’s an understandable overlap between driving enthusiasts and motorsports fans. You know your petrolhead. Pick the kind that would appeal to them, whether it’s the high-octane pace of Formula One or the hurly burly of NASCAR.
Any of these things would make a great gift for a petrolhead to show them that you get their obsession and are willing to fuel it further still!
