Car guys are kind of picky when it comes to the type of gifts they receive, some will say that a car is the best birthday gift you can give them. But there are other lists of things to get a guy with an expensive car like one of those sports cars. There are also more affordable items that they might want.
Here Are 25 Birthday Gifts For Car Guys
1. Car Wash
If you are tight on cash then get a gift certificate for a car wash. Some guys don’t mind using foam from the hardware store but it’s not really the same. The best thing about this gift is that you don’t have to spend too much money on it and you can even go through the car wash with them.
There are lots of shops that sell car accessories, some are a little more old-school than others but either way, most men will love getting new accessories for their vehicle. Make sure that the place doesn’t specialize in just one type of accessory, if so then they might not be able to find what they want there.
3. Car Spoilers
Just like accessories, there are lots of shops that sell car spoilers, some great and some have bad reputations. A lot of people go on the internet to see who sells good and bad quality car spoilers but since they do they can go ahead and get one from them. Shop around to be sure not to buy anything defective or fake that are cheaper than it should be.
4. Car Stickers
Car stickers are a fun gift for car guys, you don’t have to buy a whole pack of stickers, just get one or two different ones and stick them on the dashboard or somewhere else that’s visible. They will be able to stick them on their own without having to ask for help from you. Make sure to get stickers of different colours and sizes.
5. Car Covers
If you have the money and you want to get a gift that can be used and appreciated, then give a car cover. There are covers for every price range; people use covers all the time as they’re easy to take off when they get dirty or broken. Homemade covers might not cost that much, but it’s hard to make one that’s perfect so if someone asks you what would be the ideal gift, then give them a complete set of car covers.
6. Car Gear
Another thing that is a good gift for car guys in car gear, can be anything from an extra oil filter to a new air filter. The reason this gift is a good one is that they might not know what brands to get and the best brands are expensive to buy especially when you’re on a budget. It’s easy enough to get something simple like an air filter but if they know what they need and have no clue where to go find it then give them a set of tools with them as well.
7. Car Sidekick
If they need some help getting through traffic, then consider giving them a car sidekick like a car phone. This can be even better if they have a Bluetooth option because then you can give them directions to their destination without having to use the cell phone or have to talk to people on the cell phone. A lot of guys do this with old-school v8s and muscle cars so get one for those too
8. Car Valet Service
If you want them to have someone else do all the work when it comes to cleaning the car then bring it up in conversation and mention that you could bring them for a service next time. They are going to go ahead and buy it, they like the fact that you are doing all the work so they don’t need to fuss with cleaning it themselves.
9. Car Covers
There are companies that sell car covers and sometimes they come in a pack with different sizes and colours so be sure to get them a complete set of covers. Some stores will give discounts on buying their car covers as well since they do lots of business with them.
10. Car Care Products
You don’t have to buy them just any car care products, but instead if possible put their name on the list so they can pick what they like the most from their stock. Some companies will give discounts to guys who are buying products for a car so that’s something else to mention when you are giving them the items.
11. Bathroom Revisiting
Get this done as a surprise, they won’t know what it is unless they read the hint and then they’ll be really happy. They’ll realize that you knew how important their bathroom is and that you wanted to make sure it look good when your way.
12. Pinpoint Bodywork
If the car is scratched and dented pretty bad, then get it fixed at a company like a body shop or auto dealer so they can patch up the body on their own without having to ask someone else to do it.
13. Car Speakers
If they like music and they have a car, then don’t get them the normal speakers but instead get them the speakers that can be mounted onto a pole, it will look nice and they won’t have to worry about the speakers being stolen or missing.
14. Fuel Saving Devices
Fuel-saving devices will help make their car more fuel efficient and at the same time save on gas money. These can come in various amounts of payback on energy, some are cheap but do little for you while others take a long time to see results but once you do it then you can make better judgment calls when it comes to buying fuel for your car.
15. Petrol Saving
If they have a car, then this is a good gift for them since it will help them save on gas engines. If they regularly drive long distances then they might need to get this because they don’t want to feel like they are wasting money when it comes down to the mileage costs.
16. New Wheels
If their wheels are damaged in any way, then give them those new wheels that they’ve always wanted. If you can’t get new ones in time and you have to settle with getting their old set of wheels fixed then make sure that you also buy an extra set of tires as well so that way he’ll be able to drive on them at the same time.
17. Front End Work
This is something that needs to be done by professionals and there are a lot of companies that do it. The best thing about them is you don’t have to pay for the whole work so you might as well just let them do their own while they’re on your list. This can be a good gift if you want to make sure their car always looks good.
18. Tyre Repairing
If their tyres are worn out or the sidewalls are damaged, then take them to the tyre place where they can get this fixed for free. If it’s something minor then take them once there and if not then let him go on his own and make sure he goes over there.
19. Tyre Spinning
If you have the money, then buy this for him. It’s something that is forgotten sometimes and most people don’t even want to do it, but if he’s a huge fan of cars then he’ll find this one of the best gifts ever. A lot of people will look at him like he’s an idiot when he does it, but as long as you’re happy about his happiness then you should be good to go with your gift buying.
20. New Vehicle
If you have the money, then I recommend getting them a new vehicle if they really want one. You’ll be surprised at how much car lovers will spend on cars since they rarely need to take care of one. If you’re going to get them a new vehicle, then make sure you find a good deal on it so that way they don’t feel like they were ripped off.
21. Car Documentaries
Some people will say this is repetitive, but you should buy them a car documentary as a gift if they are completely serious about their car love. Make sure you buy them one in English and not in their native language because if you don’t do that then they’ll be laughing at you later when they watch it.
22. Car Shows
If they really love cars, then get them to go to a car show. They will be able to see all their favourite cars and there might be some new discoveries that they can do that are only done by car enthusiasts like how to fix a transmission in less than an hour or get the best deals for parts for cars.
23. Car League
If the person loves football or basketball, then get him into a car league like the motocross league so he can drive fast vehicles on dirt roads or on a track if he’s so inclined.
24. Car Video Games
If the guy is old enough and he has a passion for cars, then get him some car games for his computer or maybe even for his cell phone so that way he can take it with him wherever he goes.
25. New Tires
If their tires are leaking air and they seem worn out, then get them some new tires to replace the old ones. Make sure you bring the invoice of when you bought them so that way they never think that you scammed them into believing these are new ones.
Well, I hope these ideas will work for you. They are great gifts for car lovers and that’s why I wrote this article for you. It’s not always about money, sometimes it’s about showing someone you care so go get your car love now.
