What to get car enthusiasts for Christmas!

Automotive fans and car enthusiasts can be tricky to shop for if you’re not into cars or aren’t an actual gearhead yourself. Especially when you need fresh ideas every year for the same people.

Not to worry! We’ve picked some of the coolest and most useful gifts any car enthusiast would love, from tools that will make your actual car even better to fun accessories for you to sport your Porsche or VW pride.

Although it would be much easier just to ask the person what they want for Christmas – everyone loves getting a gift they truly didn’t expect.

Here’s a list of gifts to buy car enthusiasts for Christmas:

1. A proper Car Cleaning kit

Spoil the love of your life. And by the love of your life, we mean your car.


Get rid of those old rags and cheap car cleaning tools and make way for some top of the notch car cleaning goodies and micro-fiber cloths. Using a proper car cleaning kit will help your car look spotless and brand new. This is the perfect gift to buy for the gearhead in your life. 

2.  Ferrari Merchandise 

We all know at least one Ferrari SUPER-fan. 

You don’t have to buy a Ferrari car to make your friend or family member happy. By visiting one of their stores you can get your hands on some wonderful gifts like branded caps, t-shirts, keychains and so much more. 

3. Car Racing Xbox or Playstation games 

FORZA. Need for Speed. F1. OnRush. 

Car Racing Games make perfect gifts. Find out if they own an xBox or Playstation and go to your local gaming shop or Musica for a wide range of brand new games. 

4. Cellphone mount 

Holding your phone up while driving is so last season. 

A Cellphone mount is not just a handy tool but can save a life. You can buy a universal phone mount at your nearest Cellphone store or local Spaza shop. 

5. Personalised Keychains 

Nothing says “I love you” like a personalised keychain!

A personalised keychain is a perfect gift to add to any set of keys. You can be creative and add their favorite quote, their name or their dream car. 

6. A Pressure cleaner (WAP)

The Pressure is on!

A pressure cleaner or WAP is a tool that every car enthusiast needs in their garage.  From cleaning the driveway where they park their car to washing their car-engine, this is the gift to give this Christmas! 

7. One-year subscription to a car magazine 

CAR. Leisure Wheels. Automotive Business Review. 

Car Magazines are the perfect stocking stuffer for any car enthusiast. But you can make their twenty-twenty by buying a year’s subscription to their favorite magazine. Shop online for the best deals. 

8. Handheld vacuum 

Not all car gifts SUCK!

A handheld Vacuum is such a handy gadget to have especially if you’re taking a trip to the ocean or want to clean your car when there’s no vacuum available for you to use. Shop them online or go to your local car gadget shop. These vacuums plug into the cigarette lighter socket of your car!

9. A Giftbox with car-related goodies 

SURPRISE! A gift box filled with car-related goodies!

If you’re a last-minute gift-buyer then this a perfect gift idea. Go to the shops and fill a box with micro-fiber cloths, air fresheners, tools, car cleaning products and anything car related you can find! Remember to add a sweet Christmas card with a car on the front.  

10. A Gift voucher 

The holy grail of all presents. 

Gift cards/vouchers are perfect gifts for a car enthusiast that you might not know very well. If they own a 4×4, buy a Front Runner gift card – or a voucher for a full valet at their local car-wash. 

11. Personalised car mats 

As a MATter of fact, this is the most thoughtful gift you can give!

Imagine having personalised car mats with your name branded on. Cool, right? Spoil the car enthusiast in your life with a set of propper car mats, personalised. Buy a set of car mats and take them to an embroidery company. 

12. Emergency kit 


This gift is not just for automotive fans but for anyone (over 18 years) driving a car! The worst thing that can happen to you is, if you get caught up in an emergency and you don’t have the proper tools to help you get out. 

13. GPS

Take a left and drive to your local tech shop. 

Not a fan of using your mobile phone as a GPS? (See info above if you actually are) In this day and age, every shop sells at least one brand name GPS. All you have to do is choose the perfect one!

14. Seat Covers

Put on your seat covers – we’re going on an adventure. 

Seat covers are the perfect way to protect your car’s interior and maintain its value. They protect your interior against dirt and stains from day to day wear. And if the car enthusiast has kids, it’ll be an even better present!


And if this list doesn’t spark some ideas, why not sell their old car to us and buy them a brand new one!
