Every year, people end up scratching their heads about that last little gift to buy. Well, if the person you’re buying for is a car owner and enthusiast, here’s our favourite Christmas gift ideas for car lovers, from the fun to the useful!
1. Car Steering Wheel Desk – £16.99
We can’t work out if this is completely bizarre or a stroke of genius but for that significant other who spends a lot of time on the road, this Car Steering Wheel Desk could be the answer! We’re pretty confident you’re supposed to be stationary when you use it and it doubles up as both an eating and a laptop table.
2. Personalised Car Mats – £29.99
For the car owner who takes pride in their car, these personalised car mats are a great way to keep things clean and tidy whilst also bringing that personal feel.
3. Car Freshener for Him – £10.00
For the man in your life, this car freshener is enhanced with more masculine leathery and musky tones. Simply spray on your (personalised) car mats, boot liners and seats to deodorise and ensure your car smells great, and importantly, manly!
4. Grip Strips – from £6.99
These are kind of cool and a nice little stocking filler. Described as being like ‘the clinging feet of a tenacious gecko’, these silicon material Grip Strips hold practically anything in place, from iPads to Sat Navs. We reckon they’re not dissimilar to those Wacky Wally’s we used to play with as kids… just much more useful!
5. Gearstick Bottle Stopper – £12
These are rather a nice idea for the classic car lover. Available in two different designs, both have a nice vintage look and finish to them.
6. Four Supercar Blast plus High Speed Passenger Ride and Photo – £125
Not quite a stocking filler but a special treat none-the-less. Described as ‘the ultimate driving experience’, you are promised the pick of a variety of top supercars, including sleek Ferraris, stunning Lamborghinis, luxurious Aston Martins, sporty Porsches and many more.
7. Portable car vacuum cleaner – £21.95
Designed to be left in the car, this portable car vacuum works off the car charger/cigarette lighter. Perfect for keeping on top of crumbs, dog hairs, mud and dust, this lightweight vacuum will help you keep on top of cleanliness in the car. We think it’s a pretty good deal for the price!
8. Halfords Car Cleaning Award Winners Kit – £10
This must be a good car cleaning kit… it’s won awards! The formulations in this kit claim to make your car shine both inside and out, leaving it with a that spotless showroom look. Whilst this might not be the most fun present you could buy someone, it’s certainly a good way of dropping a massive hint about the state of their car!
9. Magnetic Windscreen Cover – £9.99
Perfect for the car owner who loves practical things, this magnetic windscreen cover will put an end to scraping ice from your windscreen in winter or enduring a baking hot car in the summer.
10. MotorMouse Motor Sports Car Wireless Computer Mouse – £33.99
This cool and quirky wireless computer mouse is based on the shape of a classic sports car and has been backed by James Caan off Dragon’s Den. Its shape makes it very comfortable to use as a mouse. This is bound to be a hit with any car fanatic!
