The holidays are almost here! Do you have all of your shopping done? If not, you still have some time to buy gifts for your favorite people. Is one of your family members a car lover? Then keep reading because we have some great gift ideas that will definitely make them smile!
Visiting the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is an awesome experience any time of the year! Tickets to the 2017 Indy 500, any other race, a tour of the Brickyard, or admission to the IMS Museum would make wonderful gifts for the car lover! Additionally, the museum has a gift shop that offers an extensive selection of clothing (men, women, kids), home decor, books, flags, and other racing memorabilia. They even have race-themed gift tags! Log on to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway website to browse for your perfect gift!
The Gift of the Guardian Bell
A Guardian Bell (or ride bell) is a creative gift choice for car and motorcycle lovers, and are readily available on Amazon. Legend has it that when a Guardian Bell is attached to our vehicle or motorcycle, it keeps us safe and repels gremlins that cause mischief in the form of mechanical problems or obstacles on the road. When you gift a Guardian Bell to someone, the magic is even stronger.
If the car lover on your shopping list has a favorite vehicle from a specific make and year, you should be able to find it in the form of a scale model. Although model cars are classified as toys, many car lovers consider them to be collectibles. You can find scale model cars in toy stores or the toy section of most retailers, along with Amazon or Ebay.
We are happy to share that we frequently find infotainment systems in the late-year used vehicles in our inventory! However, if the car lover on your shopping list does not have an infotainment system, an in-car mount makes a great gift! An in-car mount holds a smartphone while your loved one is on the road, and they can listen to their preferred audio or make “speech mode” calls. It is recommended that drivers still exercise extreme caution when using the phone while behind the wheel. In-car mounts can easily be found at Target and other big-box stores that sell electronics.
Car Maintenance Tool Kit
A car maintenance tool kit is a great gift for young drivers or someone who is starting to gain enthusiasm for automobiles. We recommend including a tire gauge, a socket set, safety goggles, a tire iron, and a torque wrench.
Vehicle Cabin Fragrances
We all love having a vehicle cabin that smells wonderful! Vehicle cabin fragrances are available at almost every retailer in the form of jars or cut-out pine trees, but we really love the Scentportables available at Bath & Body Works. The Scentportable containers are available in a variety of colors and styles, and there are many available scents that will please anyone!
