“You’re so hard to buy presents for” is not something you want to be saying in December.

We go over some top ideas for car gifts for Christmas.

If you’re buying presents for someone into cars, check out these awesome car gifts:

Get Their Car Detailed

This is a great car gift for people who don’t have the time to detail their own cars or who park outside regularly. Their car may be in need of a good spring clean or just a touch up.

Washing a car and car detailing is very different. Detailing is a much more in depth process and often includes removing wheels, badges and interior parts to bring the vehicle back to showroom condition.

Socket Set

These tool sets are perfect car gifts for car lovers buying their first car or struggling with home repairs. Socket sets come in a huge range of prices, quality and have different attachments.

Smaller socket sets make an important addition to breakdown kits as they can be stored easily. Take a look online or at a tool supplier to make sure the attachments suit the car in mind.

Full Tank of BP Ultimate

Petrol as a car gift might seem a little out-of-the-box but 98 RON fuel is a favourite for car lovers. Make sure the car you’re buying it for can benefit from this fuel by checking the owner’s manual – it won’t work for someone who drives a diesel or EV!

This higher grade fuel protects engines against damage, can help keep cars well maintained and gives more ‘bang for buck’. Often, it’s around 20 cents per litre more than regular 91 RON fuel. 

Take Them to a Car Event

These car gifts are great for people who have an interest in cars as well as the person receiving the car gift. There are many car events around Australia – most are not during Christmas so you might have to promise an ‘IOU’ in a card or buy tickets for example.

Car gifts like going to a car event solve the problem wanting to do something together too. Car events include things like show ‘n shines, drag and drift racing and actual car races.

Pay For a Service

Car gifts can include services too, especially if the car in question has an engine light on or is in need of a service. Paying for a service is expensive – or can be, depending on the vehicle but it’s worth a look. It can be a real help too.

If whoever you’re buying car gifts for doesn’t need a service, an oil change or A/C regas are good ideas too.

SuperCheap Voucher

When all else fails, go for the voucher. It may seem a little ‘dull’ but car gifts can get pretty specific. A large retailer like SuperCheap Auto has a lot covered.

To make these car gifts a little more personal, make an afternoon of it. Accompany the person you’re buying the voucher for when they use it and shout them a coffee too. 

Car Gifts Overall:

It may seem tough deciding on what car gift to buy car lovers. They can be extremely fussy and there’s the fear of buying something that won’t suit or fit their car.

Luckily, the above car gifts are pretty versatile and can be used for many applications, cars and car lovers.
