Top 5 Gifts for Car Enthusiasts - Guest Blog Post from Nationwide Vehicle Contracts

Is a special day in your partner’s life coming up? Or is it time for a gift for a close friend or relative? Most men (and a lot of women!) are auto crazy, and a motoring related gift is the perfect treat for a driving enthusiast.

This list covers all the options no matter what your budget is, so treat a loved one with a well thought out present based on their interests. The days of relying on boring novelty gifts are over!

A track day experience

A racing aficionado will appreciate some time on a track, and nowadays more local raceways are letting you test out your skills. Some track days allow you to take your own car on; otherwise there are opportunities to drive some of the rarest and most exotic cars in the world. This experience gift is perfect for anyone keen to get on a track, and prices start from as little as $129 on most occasions for a few laps in a prestige motor, and many tracks across the whole USA will offer something.

A Porsche 911 book

Looking to save the pennies? Well a motoring book shouldn’t cost you more than $25 or so, and the best of the lot is probably a document of the 911 history. This car has been with us for decades and the evolution is staggering. A look at the designs, special editions and model throughout the years will be a treat for any true motoring enthusiast as the Porsche 911 is one of the true motoring greats. 

A car valet gift set

A car owner likes nothing more than cleaning and polishing the specimen back to showroom condition whenever the sun is out. This is the one type of cleaning that men enjoy, so a valet gift set that includes a chamois, wax, shampoo and sponge will be the perfect treat. Don’t expect to pay more than $50 for a good set. If you’re in the UK then Nationwide Vehicle Contracts should be your first stop.

A Graham drivers watch

On the other side of things, if you have money burn on the motorist in your life, then you might want to splash out on smart Graham drivers watch. The Silverstone model is the pick of the range and features an automatic movement and racing features like a carbon fibre dial and a rubber strap that resembles a car tyre. To add to it in terms of exclusivity, there are only a handful being produced, but expect to pay over $7,000 for the pleasure of owning one. You might need insurance on something like this.

 

 

Some Hummer cologne/fragrance

Looking for a gift with some novelty value? Do you want to reaffirm the manly status of your partner in the form of fragrance? Well Hummer has released their own fragrance that we imagine smells of pure manliness (in a good way!). We haven’t tried it, but it’s sure to pack a punch if it wants to represent the vehicles they make. The price for the delight? Around $50 for 100ml.

  8. These are quite amazing gifts you just told us about but let’s just be honest not everyone can afford to give these kind of gifts. It will be out of budget for most of the people. I think instead of this, one can simply gift a car accessory to their car enthusiastic friends like a stylish bumper, hood panel etc. I know a place from where you can buy car accessories at decent price Iautobodyparts.com just check out this place!
