1. An Adrenaline Fuelled Driving Experience
You don’t need to spend a fortune at your local new and used car dealership to give your loved one the drive of their dreams – treat them to a driving experience.

Spoil them with a day out in a McLaren 570S at Thruxton, or by tackling Silverstone in an Aston Martin Vantage, and you can test their mettle rallying at Oulton Park or Brands Hatch.
2. Get Their Vehicle Gleaming with a Car Detailing Kit
If someone you know has a vehicle that already looks like they’ve been rallying, a car detailing kit could be an ideal Christmas gift. A superb option for anyone who loves nothing better than spending time sprucing up their pride and joy. There are plenty of affordable options available, such as the product and accessory packed Autoglym Perfect Bodywork, Wheels and Interior Gift Collection along with the Turtle Wax Ultimate Car Wash Shampoo, Wax and Detailing Kit.
3. Add a Little Sparkle with some Motoring Themed Jewellery
If your friend or family member’s car is already spotless, perhaps they’d prefer something more personal? Many vehicle manufacturers produce branded jewellery, like a pair of Mercedes-Benz cufflinks or a Jaguar watch for someone special.

4. Treat them to an Award-Winning Dash Cam
Many motorists now use dash-cams, just so they have access to video footage of any incidents that happen whilst out on the roads. There are many different models on the market, but to really impress your loved one, try a state-of-the-art version. The Nextbase 612GW 4K Dash Cam is the first model capable of recording in high-definition 4K resolution and won the “Best Dash Cam” category in the 2018 Auto Express Product Awards.
5. Dress to Impress with Cool Motoring Clothing
Finally, a quick online search will reveal a myriad of branded motoring clothing items available for purchase, including everything from MINI sweatshirts to Lamborghini touchscreen gloves. You can even treat a VW camper van devotee to a t-shirt with a suitably festive design – although they’ll probably need to add another layer if they’re venturing out of the house on Christmas Day.
Whatever gifts you decide to buy, a stocking filler 2019 diary may come in handy, just for them to note down the dreaded road tax, mot and car insurance policy renewal dates!
