Automotive fans can be tricky to shop for if you’re not into cars or an actual gearhead yourself. Not to worry! We’ve picked 8 of the coolest and useful gifts any car enthusiast will love.
STEERING WHEEL COVER
Keep your hands warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer with this steering wheel cover that provides extra grip. Made with eco-friendly rubber, you won’t get the toxic smells likefrom other rubber products.
Rev up getting dressed-up in a suit with these speedometer cufflinks. They are sure to please even the pickiest car enthusiast on formal night!
Never miss a thing while you are on the road! Enter the dashcam, a device that’s exactly what the name implies: a camera that goes on your car’s dashboard.
ULTIMATE EXOTIC CAR RACING IN VEGAS
OK, so this one is a little steep, but if you’ve got plans to be anywhere near Las Vegas, this experience will be a thrill. With the base package, drivers will get the choice of five supercars that they’ll be able to drive for five full laps around the Las Vegas Speedway’s road course.
LIFEPROOF SUCTION MOUNT (w/quickmount)
The combination of a sturdy suction-cup mounting and a quick-release coupling make this mount an easy choice. It has a locking pivot point that allows you to point it in any direction required, and a simple flick of a tab on the mount releases the phone from its locked position.
REVELL VISIBLE V8 ENGINE MODEL KIT
Aside from making a great conversation piece for your desk or other area of the house, the real fun part about this engine model kit is that it’ll teach your fellow car lover an extra thing or two about how an engine goes together as they assemble it piece by piece.
CHEVY SEATBELT BELT
One more for the gimmicky-but-fun pile, the idea of a belt for your pants being made from a seatbelt isn’t exactly new, but we’d still recommend it as a good dad-gift if the old man is still a bit of a gearhead.
INGERSOLL RAND SUPER-DUTY AIR IMPACT WRENCH
Lastly, this pick is for the gearhead who works all day fixing cars in a professional facility. These top-line guns from Snap-On are built like tanks, and they’re a godsend when dealing with rusted fasteners.
What will you get the car enthusiast on your gift list this year? We would love to hear from you.
