It’s a misconception that motor vehicle enthusiasts only want or need cars (or motorcycles) as presents from their loved one. Yes, an affordable vintage car wouldn’t go unappreciated — but there are plenty of gifts that can't roll under their own power that can still strike a chord with the motoring maven in your life. Any of the following, for example, would do just fine.
One look at the Lensatic Compass and you might think, although it looks incredibly classy and well made, it’s a bit archaic. Consider being out on the trail with no service or, worse yet, with a dead smartphone battery. Suddenly that handsome, archaic tool is your best chance of getting home.
Whether you’re on a bike or in your car, a full tool box isn’t exactly the most practical way to carry your essential tools. The Velomacchi Tool Pouch lets you keep your most used and critical sockets, ratchets or extra bolts and washers in a compact pouch under your seat, in the trunk or even in the glove box.
When it comes to the car lover’s leather interior, you can bet they want it staying as supple and soft as possible throughout their ownership. Attending to all sorts of leather since 1968, Leather Honey is one of the best conditioners available — especially since it rings in under $20.
Instead of untying the knotted mess of charging cables stored in the glove box, just carry one: Native Union's Universal Charging Cable. The multi-tip charging cable is a USB to Micro USB base with USB Type C and iPhone tip converters.
This MagSafe phone mount is compatible with all MagSafe cases and the adjustable arm makes it easy to place the mount anywhere for the perfect viewing angle.
Camping off the back of a motorcycle or out of the back of a trusty overlander is one of the most enjoyable pastimes a motoring enthusiast can take part in — but only if they’re properly prepared. Instead of rubbing two sticks together, the TitanLight Waterproof Lighter is a much less frustrating alternative. The machined aluminum body not only looks good, it’s also lightweight and durable — essential qualities for any overlanding gear.
Integrating Amazon’s Alexa into your life is incredibly easy these days. You probably have your home covered already, but plug the Roav Viva by Anker into your car and you have a two-port USB charger, in-car navigation, voice-activated dialing, music streaming and all the other voice assistant perks you’re used to.
If he loves cars he probably loves F1. If he loves F1, get him some merch to rep his favorite team (or in the case of this hoodie, he'll be repping the USA's only F1 race).

Just because somebody is a car lover doesn't mean they might not want to give motorcycling a try. But buying a real bike and getting a motorcycle license can be a long, expensive process. So why not get them started with this sweet minibike?
If you've got a car lover in your life, odds are good you've also got somebody who loves to drive — and just might want to share videos of their legendary trips (and, perhaps, the occasional near-miss) with friends and family. Be their hero; get them a Hero.
And if the car lover in your life really likes pictures of cars, perhaps it's time they started taking some good ones of their own. An entry-level DSLR offers a big upgrade over even an iPhone 12 Pro.
Do they need what essentially boils down to a portable freezer chest in their vehicle? Only if they're serious about overlanding and camping.
How do you shop for the guy who owns the fanciest, rarest things? Aim for gifts he wouldn't anticipate.
