Holiday Gift Ideas for the Car Enthusiast

Posted by: Holly Macaluso

The holidays are quickly approaching, which means many presents need to be bought. To help, we put together a list of ideas that car enthusiasts will love. 

  • Car Washes: We all know how dirt inevitably accumulates on our cars during the winter months. A gift card to your local car wash is a perfect gift for the season and will not go to waste.
  • LEGO Model Cars: Most LEGO sets pass off single-seat runabouts as cars, but the company goes the other direction with its ultra-detailed, larger-scale models. With everything from a classic Volkswagen Beetle and MINI Cooper to the Ferrari F40 and Porsche 911 GT3 RS, these sets let car and model enthusiasts build a true mantle masterpiece. Prices range from $99.99 for Volkswagen models to $299.99 for the 2,704-piece Porsche 911 set.


  • All Weather Floor Mats: Once again, with the winter season in full motion, you cannot go wrong with accessories to help with the harsh weather. All weather floor mats protect the interior of your vehicle from dirt, spills, melted snow and more. Visit your local dealer's parts department to get manufacturer mats that will fit perfectly in your vehicle.
  • Chevy Seatbelt Belt: Yes, they make seatbelt belts. This fun and quirky gift can be found on Amazon starting at $20. White elephant exchange, anyone? 


  • Scale Cars: As cool as the LEGO kits are, scale models are a great alternative for any car lover. They look closer to the real deal and they avoid the work of having to build the model.
  • Car-themed Furniture: This is a unique way to bring a car lover's obsession into the house. There are many available options for car-themed furniture. Some include an engine block table and a DIY wheel table.


  • Racing School: This is as interactive and personal as it gets. Racing school not only teaches you the proper racing technique from professionals, but also gives you the opportunity to get behind the wheel and let your reckless side emerge. Some racing school options include Skip Barber Racing and CGI Motorsports

Happy holiday shopping!
