Stuck on what to get for the car lover in your life?
Here are the best car enthusiast gift ideas for your upcoming gift list.
The holiday season is my favorite time of year. Everyone seems to be happy and in the Christmas spirit. Giving gifts to others and watching huge smiles light up their faces turns me into a pile of mush. But, I also like receiving gifts, too. Who doesn’t? And, as a car guy, there’s nothing I love more than receiving gifts that get my motor running.
This is no time to panic -- take a deep breath. Despite what you might think, car enthusiasts are easy to shop for. There are so many products out there that will make a car lover’s heart grow bigger than the Grinch’s. It all starts with knowing where to look and what will make the best gift. From car speaker systems to tire shine packs and everything in between, there’s sure to be something for that special car-lover in your life. Give Santa the night off and take charge of the gift-giving duties this year. Are you ready?
The ultimate list of gifts for car lovers.
Here’s a pro tip: don’t get a car lover a necessary gift such as a new set of tires, a chrome exhaust pipe or a brand-spanking’ new radiator. Those kinds of gifts will empty your wallet pretty quick, but you need to think beyond the necessary gifts. Get something that’s creative. Need some help? Check out the items below to help get those creative gift-giving juices flowing.

They’re easy to use and can be kept in the glove box. Buy Some
NOCO Boost Plus GB40. Cold weather means your vehicle is going to work twice as hard as it should. Northerners, you know what I’m talking about. Everyone has had to deal with a dead battery at some point and it’s never a good experience. Plus, it’s always awkward asking a stranger for a jump. Give the gift that will always keep giving with the NOCO Boost Plus GB40. It has enough juice to help turn over most engines. There are versions available for v-8 and diesel engines, too. Buy One

Bonus gift idea: USB Extension Cable. The best gifts for classic car lovers can be tough to find. Luckily, there are tons of aftermarket products and more that can bring old-car technology up to date. Take a USB extension cable for example. Instead of rocking out to AM or FM radio every time the owner drives, the USB extension cable allows any smartphone or another listening device to connect to the car’s audio system. “Surfin’ USA” can be on repeat all day.
