One of the most rewarding and difficult things about the Christmas season is picking out gifts. There are gifts that are personal, those that are standard, and those that appeal to the likes and dislikes of the receiver. Here are some ideas for gifts that will tickle the fancy of any auto enthusiast.
1. Model Car Kits- I know my auto enthusiast loves putting in the hours to complete models of his favorite cars. Though you may not be able to afford the actual car that he/she wants, you can give them the opportunity to build the model of that car from the ground up. There are tons of great stores out there that sell model cars like Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, or various online retailers.
2. Personalized gear for his/her car- if they are a car enthusiast odds are they are enthusiastic about their own ride. By giving them personalized or taste specific accessories for their car they can make their car that much more special. Autoanything.com is a great source for personalized accessories and much more.
3. Subscription to a car magazine- though not everyone loves to read, it will be fun for your auto enthusiast to look through trends and different models of car each month or week as a new issue arrives. This may even end up giving them ideas about what they want to do with their own car or a car in the future. Some great car magazines are Evo magazine, Grassroots Motorsports, and Motor Trend Magazine.
4. Tool Kits- for those auto nuts that work on their own cars or have a project car they are working on try buying specialized auto tool kits. Odds are they already have standard tools but there are also specialized tool kits for those that want to spend a little more that are great for auto enthusiasts that work on cars. Mechanicstoolsupply.com has loads of tools that are specific to the types of projects a car enthusiast would be doing.
5. Lastly a car care package- this can include any number of things like car care and maintenance supplies, car magazines, a combination of the items listed above, and just about anything else you could think of that your enthusiast would love. With a care package or gift basket you are not limited to one large item and instead can buy tons of little items that your enthusiast is sure to love. Gifts.com has a great section devoted specifically to automotive gifts.
Any of these gifts would be great for the car enthusiast in your family and with the variety of items and gifts out there how much you spend will not dictate if you are able to find a gift or not.
