What to get the car enthusiast in your life

Our favourite gifts for car lovers are wide-ranging and the best one for your special someone will depend on personal taste. Does the car lover in your life own a fast sports car or a practical family sedan? Do they love long road trips with beautiful scenery or would they prefer a weekend watching Formula 1?

The most memorable Christmas gifts are those that are unusual or unexpected, and chosen with thought and care. We have a few car-related gifts that are sure to be well-received…so no need to sneak a peek at their letter to Santa.

Unique gifts for car lovers

Nobody wants another personalised car keyring! Instead, get something that will really stand out from the crowd. For the serious car enthusiast, you’re spoilt for choice.

If the person you’re buying for has splurged on a car they really, really love taking out for long drives and showing off, a pair of quality driving gloves might be the perfect gift for them. They’ll help to protect the steering wheel while also giving the driver a better feel (and a cooler look, obviously!). If they’ve a high-performance or luxury car, it would almost be rude to drive without the gloves.

A car experience day is always a winner too, especially if the recipient you had in mind doesn’t have the kind of car they dream of. How about a spin on a racetrack or a course that improves their defensive driving skills?

Don’t have that much money to spend? A car key finder is a practical but fun option for the car lover who’s always misplacing the keys right before they need to hit the road. In fact, we’ve written a whole article on different gadgets and apps that will help them find lost car keys.

When it comes to Christmas, combining travel and motoring makes for the perfect gift for car lovers.

Choose somewhere that requires driving along beautiful roads and book a great Airbnb or guesthouse from which your gift recipient can explore.

In addition, check out these suggestions from on places to stay along some of Australia’s best road trip routes.

If you can really splash out on the gift, how about a once-in-a-lifetime driving tour in incredible Australian destinations? Or even overseas (yes, we’re thinking positively). Think luxury supercars, complete with fine dining and top-notch hotels.
