Whether it’s Christmas, birthdays or even an anniversary, gifts are a great way to make someone’s day even more special. For car lovers, you’ll no doubt be looking for something that fits in with their favourite interest, activity and topic of conversation.

In this post, we’ll run through five of the best gifts for car lovers in your life.

1. Fuel candle

The smell of fuel is enough to put many people off their food. Not car lovers, who invariably crave that unique fuel aroma. What better gift for them than a fuel-scented candle?

Complete with an oil-barrel inspired design, fuel candles provide a hint of fuel, smoke and metallic aromas mixed with more universally appreciated scents like pine. You never know – the subtle blend of scents might bring you around to the unique smell too.

2. Key finder

There’s nothing worse than losing your car keys. That’s even harder for people who love nothing more than getting behind the wheel. Fortunately, there are now a range of easy-to-use car key finders on the market.

Most work the same, allowing you to connect to the finder using your phone’s Bluetooth, triggering a loud alarm on the device, which is conveniently connected to your car keys.

3. Car driving experience

From the old classics with stiff gears to the souped-up tech wonders with gadgets on the dash – car lovers can usually appreciate almost any set of wheels. But there are some cars that are simply in a league of their own.

Driving experience days offer the chance to get behind the wheel of the most incredible cars, without the lifetime of saving up that would normally be required. Supercar Ferraris, Bond-inspired Aston Martins or even a ride in the Batmobile – it’s simply a choice of which they would love the most.

4. Build your own sets

Some days just aren’t fit for getting out on the road. Or perhaps they’re waiting on a part for the project in their garage. Whatever the case, a build your own set is a great gift to keep car lovers busy and entertained for hours on end.

Build your own Haynes V8 engine complete with a Haynes instruction manual, almost 300 parts and authentic recorded V8 sounds. Or put together a stylish Vintage Grand Prix Car, perfect for the desk or display cabinet once it’s finished.

5. A new car…

Want to really blow away the car lover in your life? The ultimate gift is without a doubt a new car. It could be a big birthday for your significant other. Or maybe you want to properly reward your child for passing their test.
