5 Best Gifts for Car Enthusiasts
Ideas for the Vehicle Lover in Your Life
Think about your hobby for a minute. Now imagine someone that doesn’t have that same hobby trying to buy you a gift associated with it. It will probably be the wrong brand, the wrong size, the wrong style, the wrong color, or you already have about 30 of them. Shopping for people’s hobbies is hard! Here at Big Sky Collision Center we rounded up a few of the best gift ideas for the man or woman in your life that totally loves cars; ones that won’t be tucked away into the closet and quietly sold or returned next month.
The last one on the list is your safety in case that person on your list truly does have everything.
CarLock Real-Time Car Tracker
For those that love their vehicles, keeping them safe is of utmost importance. But car alarms can only do so much; nobody hears and alarm and thinks, “Oh no, a car is being stolen!” instead they think, “Someone needs to shut that thing off!”
Modern technology has a better solution. Using a device like CarLock, your auto loving friend or family member will get an alert whenever their car is moved, the engine starts, or if unusual vibration is detected. It’s also great for those with teenage drivers to know if they’re being safe on the road!
LEGO Kit of their Favorite Car
Most of us drive what we enjoy and the nicest that we can afford. But many people have that one car that they really want. Maybe it’s a rare vintage, maybe it’s just far too expensive. No matter why it’s not in the garage, it’s constantly on their mind.
Satisfy at least some of their craving with a classic car LEGO kit. LEGO makes all sorts of vehicle kits, and there’s a good chance that there is one that they want. You’ll have to do a little snooping first to determine what vehicle they love.
Can’t find the right LEGO kit? A high quality die-cast replica is a good second option.
Subscription to a Car Magazine
Most guys and gals that love vehicles want to stay up to date on the latest in vehicle technology and advancements. The internet is a great tool, but sometimes it’s nice to plop onto the couch with a cup of coffee and a paper magazine with full color photos.
There are dozens of car magazines out there. Find the one that matches your recipient’s tastes (cars, motorcycles, trucks, etc.) and give the gift that keeps giving.
Rent the Car of their Dreams
If you have a hundred thousand of spare cash lying around, you could just outright buy the vehicle for the other person. But most of us don’t quite have that luxury.
Instead, with some planning, you could rent them the car of their dreams, and at least let them experience it behind the wheel. Here in Billings, that might be a little hard to do, so your gift will likely involve some travel to Las Vegas or another big city to make it all happen.
A Full Auto Detailing Gift Certificate
Finally, every car enthusiast loves a clean vehicle. And what a better way to make someone happy, than to get them a gift certificate to have their vehicle detailed?
Big Sky Collision Center offers competitive rates on auto detailing here in Billings, Montana. Our technicians are trained to clean the dirtiest of vehicles, and make sure that they’re sparkling clean, safe, and ready to be enjoyed.
For those on a tight budget, service gifts are a great as well. Spend a few hours washing, waxing, vacuuming, and shampooing their vehicle for them so they can drive a clean rig for the next few months.
