Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, and we’re frantically scrabbling around to come up with present ideas for our friends and family. Luckily, if you’re buying for a car lover this Christmas, we’ve done the hard work for you – check out our gift guide for some inspiration on what to buy for them this season. When searching for some stocking fillers, you can’t go far wrong with a cheap and cheerful aerial topper; there are plenty of novelty options to choose from depending on who you’re giving it to – including Rudolph and Father Christmas toppers for a particularly festive feel. A keyring for their car keys is a great gift for car owners; whether it’s a comedy keyring or something a bit more luxurious for the person that already has everything.
If you’re on a very tight budget, an unusual air freshener is sure to raise a smile. For a gift which allows you to get a little creative, why not make up a winter driving or emergency breakdown kit for someone to keep in the back of their car? Include a blanket, torch, high vis vest, non-perishable food and a (non-electrical) game to occupy the time while they wait for roadside recovery.
There are plenty of ways to personalise the kit, and no doubt they will love the thought you’ve put in. Alternatively, if you don’t have the time to compile your own, there are similar kits available to buy. If your intended recipient is particularly style-conscious, why not invest in a pair of sleek leather driving gloves? A handy gift for keeping out the chill this winter, you’ll get serious points for gifting such a luxury item.
If you’re willing to spend that little bit extra, consider buying a satnav for the new drivers in your life; we all know someone that is always getting lost and could use a hand finding their way. They’ll love you for it, and you’ll never get those panicked phone calls again. So there you have it, the Motors.co.uk Christmas Gift Guide. What are you buying this year?
