Best Gifts for Your Car Lover

With summer upon us, the winding road beckons the car lover in our lives to top off the gas tank, bring the convertible top down, and take a long trip down a sleepy highway. More than likely, time constraints won’t allow for a Kerouac-type journey, but with this roundup of car-themed gifts, you can bring a little of the open road to that special someone.

Protective Sunglasses
The summer months bring the sun out for longer periods of time. Protect the eyes of your favorite driver by gifting proper eyewear to ensure maximum visibility. An important specification to look for in driver sunglasses are polarized lenses to prevent glare and tension headaches. These Ray-Ban Aviator Classics are able to absorb 85% of visible light and provide 100% UV protection. They’re also durable and stylish—perfect for your savvy car lover.

Fingerless Driving Gloves
If a pair of driving glasses are already taking residence in your car buff’s glove compartment, try something else! These Ralph Lauren fingerless driving gloves are best for optimal comfort in the heat. The perforation detailing still provide a no-slip fit, and the smooth leather will have him or her revving their engine like a modern-day Steve McQueen.

Performance Footwear
Footwear is an extension of your body while driving; it promotes a unique connection between foot and pedal. Ensure the driver in your life has protected feet with Piloti Performance Shoes. Providing patented technology like the Roll Control™ spherical heel, these shoes boast comfort and the latest shoe technology.

Car MD
The Car MD is an easy-to-use car diagnostic tool. It plugs into a car and runs a scan to pinpoint any car trouble. It is able to read car issues and provide a complete diagnostic report when connected to a computer. If your car lover is ever on the road or without a computer, they can call the toll-free number and receive the report over the phone. While it won’t fix anything, it is able to give your driver a better perspective on the repairs required in order to avoid up-costs when they visit a mechanic.

GoPro
A nifty tech gadget for the track-obsessed driver is the GoPro camera. Easily mount the camera to the inside car dashboard and keep footage of the best lap times. The video quality range of 720p60 to 1080p30 can easily achieve professional-quality images every time. Entry-level cameras to the latest HERO4 are available. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, the GoPro makes sharing proud moments out on the track quick and easy.

Whether for Father’s Day or to gear up for a summer vacation road trip, we hope you find a thoughtful gift soon. What would you like to receive? Tell us in the comments below!
