It can be difficult to please everybody at Christmas, especially if you have no idea what to buy them. That’s why people that you know have a popular hobby or interest can be a god send, as this provides you with some great gift ideas. However, this same thought process will be running through everybody’s head, so it is important to go above and beyond to really give them something they’ll be pleased with.

When it comes to car lovers, there are a lot of things on the market that would serve as great gifts. But they’ve probably been done hundreds of times in the past. I’m talking about furry dice, foot matts and seat belt covers. Here’s a list of some great ideas that will really get the petrol head in your family revving.

1.  Stirling Moss Inspired Holdall –

– Stirling moss is, in many people’s eyes, one of the greatest race car drivers the world has ever seen and what’s more, he achieved everything during a time when safety was nowhere near as advanced as it is now. Now your car fanatic can share in some of Stirling’s glory with this stylish leather weekend bag, inspired by the numbering on the cars he used to drive. Perfect for that weekend away on the open road.

2.  The Road Angel –

No car lover should ever leave the drive without one of these. This clever little device sits on your dashboard and can warn you of any areas where speed cameras are and then tell you the speed limit. It even has a built in laser detector to inform you of those pesky temporary roadside cameras that catch so many of us out.

3.  Michelin High-Power Raid Tyre Inflator –

It is inevitable that anybody who uses their car a lot is going to get their fair share of flat tyres. However, this gadget can save you a lot of time and frustration at the road side.It’s spherical in shapeand the valves and adaptors fit neatlyunderneath so that the whole device is very compact. Perfect for stowing away in the boot and not taking up too much space.

4.  Personal Car Communicator –

For anybody who loves their car, keeping it safe is essential. We all have, at one point or another, walked away from the car, forgot whether we locked it or not and then had to walk all the way back and check. With this cool piece of technology you can simply just look at your remote key fob to see whether you did indeed lock the doors. It also, impressively, has a heartbeat sensor built in so you can be warned of any dangers that may be lurking around your car.

5.  Luxury Car Rental –

You may think that a track day would be the ultimate gift for any petrol head in your family, but that would only mean they got a few laps in their dream car. Why not pay for them to rent the car of their dreams for a long weekend and really give them an experience they won’t forget. Luxury car rental allows your loved one to have an extended period behind the wheel of their favourite car and take it wherever they like; not just a few times round a track.
