A love, passion, and addiction to all things automotive is much more than a regular hobby; instead, it fast becomes an exciting (and often expensive) obsession.
When the ultimate petrolhead in your life’s birthday is looming, what better way to show them that you love them than something related to their adoration for cars? With this in mind, continue reading to discover ideas and inspiration for your petrol-headed loved one.
Personalized Number Plates
First and foremost, if you have the money to spend and the time to find the perfect combination of letters and numbers, what lover of cars wouldn’t absolutely adore a personalized number plate?
Private number plates add an extra level of luxury to any car, and the chances are that the vehicle that your loved one drives is kept in tip-top condition, so such a gift will be the cherry on the cake.
Supercar Driving Experience
Next up on the list, make their birthday one to remember and book them a supercar driving experience through a reputable and renowned online company.
There are a multitude of racetracks around the country that are hired out periodically to either private or commercial owners of supercars that take car enthusiasts for, quite literally, the ride of their lives.
Combine the driving experience or red-letter day with some classic and high-quality Arezzo leather driving gloves in a dark brown shade to make them feel ultimately special this year.
A VIP Tour of Silverstone
Formula 1’s fanbase has become large enough to rival other leading sports in the UK, and everyone who follows the Grand Prix knows that Silverstone is the true heart of the sport.
So, instead of something physical to unwrap, give your automotive-obsessed friend or family member some tickets for a VIP tour of the track, stadium, and The Silverstone Museum. Alternatively, you could even splash out and treat them to two tickets to the next Formula 1 race held at Silverstone.
LEGO Supercar Sets
Another impressive birthday or Christmas present and one that’s sure to provide hours of endless fun is to check out the wide range of LEGO supercar construction sets, which come in a huge variety of different styles, such as:
- LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang 10265
- LEGO Creator Ferrari F40 10248
- LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS 42056
- LEGO Technic Porsche 911 RSR 42096
- LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron 42083
Remember, lego isn’t just for children anymore!
Smaller Presents for Car Lovers
Either in addition to, or else instead of, the larger and more expensive gifts outlined above, you could instead build your own hamper of smaller and more novelty car-related items.
Perhaps a mug made from recycled car tires, a vintage racing clock for the table, or even a slogan T-shirt with the pet name of their vehicle emblazoned on the front? Other smaller and more affordable gift ideas for your car-obsessed loved one include car stickers for the bumper and brightly colored spray paint to add a unique touch to their vehicle.
