Bobblehead of Them as a Racecar Driver
Most of us have seen bobblehead figurines for sale at baseball games, concerts, or other large-scale events, but did you know that you can get a custom bobblehead for the car lover in your life? Bobbleheads.com offers a custom bobblehead figure designed directly from a photo that you upload to the site. What’s even better is that they can design the bobblehead to be everything from a superhero to a racecar driver.
That’s right, you can bestow a custom bobblehead of your favorite person as a race car driver that they can proudly display in their office, garage, or heck, right on their nightstand. For sheer laughs and nostalgia, there are few gifts for a car fanatic that will make them laugh and smile quite as much as this one.
Car Wash Detailing Kit
To be clear, cleaning is a chore for most people but for car lovers, car cleaning is just as much a part of the car ownership experience as driving it.
Grabbing a bucket and some soap from under the kitchen sink may seem like the way to get your car squeaky clean, but those who are in the know understand that taking care of your car’s finish requires specialized products that are designed to safely clean the car’s finish without damage. In addition to the right soap, car cleaning products like wash mitts and sponges are also specially designed to get the grime off without ruining the paint.
One of the best gifts for any car lover is a high-quality cleaning kit, and there are few on the market better than those sold by Ammo NYC. These incredibly versatile kits allow users to wash their car any place, any time with a clever hoseless wash kit. Yes, this means the apartment-dwelling car-lover in your life can wash their car any time, any place without the need to hook up to a hose!
Trust us, this is one of the ultimate Black Friday gifts for car lovers and they will love it.
Spotify Car Thing
Most new cars have the advantage of built-in Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, but what about those who don’t have a newer car?
Spotify’s new Car Thing is a great bit of technology that helps modernize an older car’s infotainment options. Rather than have to hook up and manipulate the app on an iPhone or Android device, Car Thing stays in the car and operates with a clever dial and touchscreen. Anyone who’s ever fumbled with a lock screen or tried to select a particular song or podcast on Spotify knows the pain but Car Thing makes it easy. Car Thing connects to a car’s stereo via Bluetooth, USB, or an old-school aux cable and interfaces with your phone via Bluetooth. For easy listening on the go, you don’t get much better or safer than Car Thing.
Prices are remarkably affordable for this clean bit of technology and for anyone who runs an older car and doesn’t want to upgrade their entire stereo, Spotify’s Car Thing could be just the thing.
Model Car Kits/LEGO of their car
Your car-loving friend, family, or mate may love to display their car in the driveway but it may be slightly less practical to bring it indoors. Luckily, Model Cars has a huge selection of models that look as authentic as the full-size version, but can actually fit on the shelf in their office. Not only do these look great when complete, but they’re also a fun and challenging build. Kits are available for all skill levels from beginner to advanced, with a huge selection of choices in between.
LEGO branded products take things up to another level. Take this positively insane Ferrari Daytona SP3 set from their Technic collection. Big on LEGO craftsmanship and creativity, this is one of the most unique ways to display and enjoy a love for supercars. Is this the ultimate techy, nerdy Black Friday car lover gift? We think so.
Okay, but if you want to give the car-loving friend, family member, or partner an Xperience that they’ll never forget? After all, tangible gifts can be lovely mementos but there’s nothing quite like offering the gift of pure adrenaline. For the ultimate Black Friday gift for car lovers, Xtreme Xperience has you covered with supercar driving experiences on the best tracks and roads in America!
