The best gifts to get the car-mad person in your life
Valentine's Day is nearly here once again, bringing with it an opportunity for people to show how much they care about one another. It can be tricky to find the right gift at the best of times, but what if your significant other loves cars? That can be an altogether greater challenge.
Luckily, we’ve picked out some of the best gifts to get the car-mad person in your life this Valentine’s Day.
Apple AirTag - £29
Are you buying a gift for someone who is forever losing their keys? Then Apple’s new AirTag could be the spot-on present for them. It can be connected to all manner of items and, thanks to Apple’s ‘Find My’ function, will give a precise location for the missing object.
If you’re looking for the personal touch, then you could always have it engraved with a special message, too.
Goodwood Festival of Speed Tickets - from £47
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the biggest events on the motoring calendar. A showcase of power and performance, the West Sussex event is running in 2022 from 23-26 June.
Tickets to the Festival of Speed are a great gift, too, and give the chance of seeing some of the wildest new cars up close.
Lego Technic BMW M 1000RR - £174.99
What could be better than a gift that’ll keep someone busy for hours? The BMW M 1000RR from Lego Technic definitely ticks that box. With 1,920 pieces it’s immensely detailed and even features aspects such as a fully functional three-speed gearbox and working front and rear suspension.
It’s even got three different screen dashboard options. Once finished, it’ll look great on display, too.
Amazon Echo Auto - £49.99
The Echo Auto brings all of Amazon’s intuitive systems into the car. Thanks to a variety of microphones, the Echo Auto can quickly and effectively respond to voice commands, but it can also use the Alexa service to relay information such as directions or even local fuel prices.
Plus, Bluetooth connectivity means that you can play your music or playlists directly from your phone through the device.
Trackday Driving Experience - various prices
If you’re after a gift that’ll bring a thrill, then a track day experience could be right on the money. TrackDays.co.uk offers a variety of different packages, including driving experiences for two and a double supercar blast in Ferraris and Porsches.
If you’re after something slightly different, then you can also choose a Volvo truck driving thrill for two!
