With a little over two months to Christmas, many of us are starting the much dreaded task of stocking up gifts for our loved ones. As much as we all enjoy surprising others, finding the right gift can be such a slow and painful task. However, if you are after something for a full-blown car enthusiast, then you are in for a super easy time this year with the help of this Christmas gift guide.
Something sensible and practical
A gift for a car enthusiast doesn’t have to cost an arm or a leg. For a present that will come in really handy, why not combine some de-icer with a spade for snow? Even those who are not passionate about driving will appreciate the practicality of being able to de-ice a frozen window.
The equivalent of giving your car a pampering spa, an Autoglym Perfect Bodywork and Wheels kit is perfect for car lovers who actually enjoy washing their vehicle. It comes with a detox shampoo, pampering polish and rejuvenating paintwork protector. As if that isn’t enough, there’s also a wheel cleaner, tyre dressing and wheel polish to make the vehicle shines from top to bottom.
If you have a bigger budget, then some new winter tyres will go a long way to improve the safety of his or her vehicle. The tyres on a car should be inspected each year, especially if they are more than five years old. And if the tyres are more than ten years old, then they should really be replaced with new ones as a precaution.
Something to add more style
Of course, enthusiasts are often drawn to motoring by the glamour and style associated with driving certain types of luxury cars. Although not everyone can afford a prestige car like Porsche, you can still enjoy carrying your car keys using a genuine Porsche keyring for a mere £15.
If a keyring isn’t enough, you can get them some racing boots to complete the look. The Sparco Vintage Racing Boots do not come cheap at £239, but they offer grip and protection to an FIA standard. Made from soft leather, they are classy and comfortable. The soles are oil-resistant and the ankle areas have built-in padding too.
Those with a thing for cars will also love getting some Tax Disc Cuff Links. Made from stainless steel, you can personalise them to include a date, car make, registration and price or name.
With so many presents to choose from, the question now is how you can afford to buy the ones you want. That’s easy if you’ve got an old vehicle lying around in your garden or garage which needs scrapping. Simply contact BMS Salvage for a free quote and they will do the legwork. Offering free collection and fast payment for every vehicle, you can increase your shopping budget without hassle.
Finally, for a bit of fun
It isn’t an exaggeration to say that most car lovers enjoy watching Top Gear. With this in mind, why not get the Top Gear Annual 2015, or better still, the Top Gear Track Experience, to make any car nerd squirm in excitement?
