Everyone has that one person they hate buying for at Christmas. The fussy one who never likes anything. It’s often a brother or a Dad and you end up going round and round in circles. Then you end up with socks, same as last year! This Christmas, you can change all that. For the petrolhead in your family or friendship group, we’ve got the ultimate list. Whether it’s car accessories or car-related gifts, they’ll love these on Christmas Day.
Car lovers are obsessed by everything car related. They love the smell of a new car, they love the sound of an engine. They love simply sitting behind the wheel. So you need a gift that makes that experience even better. Something that is practical, but also fun. There’s nothing worse than giving something too practical. The good news is that there is plenty out there for car lovers. You don’t have to search the preowned SUV dealers in St. Louis to keep them happy. Just get one of these fun extras.
New car smell air purifier
There are very few smells that car enthusiasts love more than the smell of a brand new car. The pristine new leather, the fresh smell of valet. All combined with the burning combustion engine smells. It’s like a drug to car lovers! Unfortunately, it fades far too quickly when you buy a new car. However, help is at hand. Some geniuses have invented an air purifier that gives your car that new-car smell back. You can pick up a spray or a hanging purifier here.
Suction cup smartphone holder
Glancing down at smartphones is dangerous while driving. Too many accidents have been caused through this life threatening activity. Yet, it still happens on every road. Whether it’s looking at text messages, glancing at a missed call or just using the maps, it happens. You can give yourself peace of mind by buying a suction cup smartphone holder for your loved one. It sticks to the windscreen and holds their phone in place. They can then use it as a GPS or hook it up to a bluetooth loudspeaker to continue their phone calls. Safe and practical.
Remote control replicas
Your loved one probably has a favourite car. Every petrolhead has one. The car they dream of when they fall asleep. The car they doodle while they’re bored. The car they started saving for but never finished. It’ll be a Porsche 911, or a Lamborghini. Maybe a Ferrari. You probably won’t want to buy one. But, find out what it is and buy a remote control replica. It’s not quite the same but the thought is there and they’ll still love the shape. Plus, in some small way, they can feel like they’re driving it.
Portable phone chargers
This isn’t just limited to phones, but these are the most common. The biggest problem on modern car journeys is the electronics giving up the ghost. Especially when you’re using GPS and maps along the way. These functions suck the life out of your battery and inevitably die on long journeys. A simple portable charger can change all this. It’s more of a practical gift than a fun one. However, they will love it.
Hopefully you can now hit the shops with some ideas in your head. There are plenty of practical and fun options for car lovers. The trick is tapping into their favourite thing about cars and getting something that satisfies.
