Automotive enthusiasts are everywhere. Chances are there is someone you know that is one. Perhaps there is even an automotive enthusiast you are trying to find the perfect gift for. If so, you’re in luck because in this article I’m going to give you some great tips. Let the countdown begin!
5. eBay $10.00 to $1 million
At number 5 we have eBay. I know eBay may not be an instant win but you can find rare car items there that you will find few other places. What is the automotive enthusiast’s in your life favorite brand of car? Maybe they would like a nice vintage hubcap to hang on the wall of their garage. My brother gave me an incredibly big Chevy hubcap one year with a big red logo on it. I love it and it sits on the wall of my garage. You could also get a classic hood ornament or even a repair manual. The possibilities are endless!
4. Borders Book Store $10 to $30
At number 4 we have Borders book store. I know what your thinking a book store really? Yes really. Book stores have an entire shelf of books devoted to automobiles. You can get a repair manual to help them fix their beloved machine. You could also get a book on the history of their favorite car or brand. They often have a lot of books about Mustangs, Corvettes, and Beetles. You could also be adventurous and buy a book on car customization to set the wheels in motion. You can also grab a great movie featuring, you guessed it, cars!
3. Sears $15 to $100
What does a car lover need? You guessed it tools, a lot of tools and good tools. You know who makes good tools? Craftsmen. What retailer sells these good tools? Sears. With a lifetime warranty on Craftsmen hand tools they are hard to beat and their quality is far superior to cheaper non-brand tools. If in doubt a small to medium basic ratchet set is a good choice. If they can’t use it in the garage they can keep it in their car for emergencies. I know what I want this Christmas.
2. NAPA Auto Parts $15 to $300
Here we venture into interesting territory. Like Sears NAPA has a wide array of tools. It also has car parts. If you know your car enthusiast needs a new part for their project car maybe you can sneak on over to NAPA to get it. Be careful though they may buy it for themselves so wait until its close to Christmas and definitely keep the receipt. They will be so impressed you got them what they needed and will love that you took the time to get it.
1. Walmart $5 to $300
Say it isn’t so. Not Walmart. Yes Walmart. Walmart has has a huge variety. Books, magazines, movies, and video games. Nothing like watching Gone in Sixty Seconds on your big screen TV. What’s that your car enthusiast isn’t a big reader or movie watcher? No problem! They also have a good automotive section Pick up a box of motor oil and a set of seat covers. Most Walmarts even sell tires, nothing says I love you like a set of high performance radials. OK I may be stretching a little bit on that last one but the idea is Walmart has a good variety.
