Amongst all the mayhem of the year, the holiday season snuck up on us – if you’re scrambling to buy some last minute gifts, we’re here to help. Have you got a friend or family member who loves all things cars? We’ve got you covered this holiday season: here’s what you should be buying this year for your favourite car enthusiast.
Car magazine subscriptions
Keep your loved one up to date on the latest industry news with a subscription to their preferred car magazine. Our favourites are CarAdvice, Wheels, Motor, Street Machine, Car Australia and NZV8. Most publications offer digital subscriptions as well as print ones, so whether they prefer flipping through the pages of a magazine or reading on their iPad, there’s a subscription perfect for them.
Tick an item off their bucket list this Christmas with the chance to get behind the wheel of their dream car. There is a variety of driving experiences to choose from: classic car hire, stunt driver schools, hot laps in a V8 supercar, drift lessons, rally driving, defensive driving courses and more. Just be sure to check the current Covid-19 restrictions in your area before you book.
Premium car accessories
You can help your friend or family member take care of their car with top-of-the-line car accessories. High tech dash cams, quality bike racks, durable car covers, custom car seat covers and other accessories are perfect for anyone whose car is their pride and joy.
If your car-obsessed mate or family member loves to read, there are plenty of car-related books they might enjoy. Here are some of our favourite titles:
- My Life and Work, by Henry Ford
- Christine, by Stephen King
- Driven: A Pioneer for Women in Motorsport, by Rosemary Smith
- Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future, by Ashlee Vance
- History’s Greatest Automotive Mysteries, Myths, and Rumors Revealed, by Matt Stone and Preston Lerner
- Faster: How a Jewish Driver, an American Heiress, and a Legendary Car Beat Hitler’s Best, by Neal Bascomb
Who says your loved one can’t own their fantasy car? Collectible model cars are the perfect gift for any price point and can be found in almost every make and model available. Alternatively, make them work a little harder for their gift with a Lego set of their favourite car.
Magic Hand Carwash gift card
Give the gift of sitting back and enjoying a coffee whilst we take good care of your loved one’s vehicle. Purchase a Magic Hand Carwash gift card in any amount so they don’t have to worry about washing and detailing their car themselves.
