What Christmas gift do you buy a classic car enthusiast?

Some might veer away from anything car related, yet there’s a galaxy of unusual and whacky automotive themed prezzies that will delight and surprise.

But if you’re struggling for stocking filler inspiration, then check out these suggestions:

Flux Capacitor USB Charger

We love anything connected with Back to the Future (see previous article called Movies Where The Car’s The Star!), so this handy USB charger would be top of our Christmas present wish list.

The flux capacitor was the key for transporting Doc’s DeLorean back (and forth) to 1955 but you’ll have to make do with it charging portable devices such as iPhones, smartphones, tablets, etc. You can’t have everything!

Personalised Car Mats

You know you’ve made it if you’re given a set of 4 personalised car mats!

Up to 20 characters can be embroidered. While an obvious choice might be ‘Dad’s Taxi’, howabout getting the creative juices flowing and make an anagram of the recipient’s name.

We’re sure they’ll be bowled over.

Haynes Cutaway Colouring Manual

Crayons and colouring pencils at the ready.

With 90 cutaway cars from classic Haynes manuals of yesteryear, it contains a variety of cars appealing to many ages.

This present could be a welcome distraction on Christmas Day for those wanting to avoid playing charades or watching the EastEnder’s special.

Life-size cardboard cut-outs

Race car immortals including Sir Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna and Juan Manuel Fangio (plus others) could be standing in the corner of your lounge if you are lucky enough to receive one of these.

These carton cut-outs are sure to make an impression with guests and could possibly provide more stimulating conversation.

Personalised Garage Sign

If you love to tinker under the bonnet, then you’d think all your Christmases had come at once if given your very own personalised garage sign.

However, make sure you place it in full view of anyone entering your garage so there can be no doubt who is master of their domain.

We would also love to hear your ideal Christmas gift ideas. Just make sure you’ve been good boys and girls so you’re not disappointed on Christmas morning.
