Thinking of something for a car person is always difficult, so we’ve put together a list of 7 things he/she would like. We have suggestions for every budget, too.
iOttie iTap Magnetic Car Phone Mount
First off, let’s start with something almost everyone needs. With all the laws against the use of a mobile device while driving, having a good cellphone car mount is now a must-have.
According to the American publication Wirecutter, the best car phone mount currently on the market is the iOttie iTap Magnetic 2, which they say, “has the best combination of safety, convenience, and stability for holding your phone on the road.”
The iTap Magnetic 2 also comes in three different versions to be fitted anywhere you like, dash and windshield mount, air vent mount and CD slot mount.
VIOFO A119 Dashcam
Another safety accessory that is becoming more and more popular is, without a doubt, a dashcam. Once a pricey item to have is now something much more affordable. Right now, one of the best values on the market is the VIOFO A119 V3. The new version of the highly popular dash camera has an even better video quality than before. It also has a parking mode and accessories like a circular polarizing lens filter available as an option.
Monopoly “Nürburgring” Board Game
The famous Nürburgring track in Germany just released the second version of the Monopoly board game. The places on the board are well-known parts of the Green Hell and even the 8 figures are race-related. You can buy the Monopoly “Nürburgring” 2nd Edition straight from the track’s website.
Porsche Ice Experience
If you go all in and want to give the gift of a lifetime for any petrolhead, the Porsche Ice Experience is near the top. Depending on the package you take, the winter driving course spreads from 2 to 5 days. During that time, they will be able to test their skills and learn new ones with the help of coaches. All this at the wheel of some Porsche 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S.
LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender

Well, LEGO got you covered with their Technic Land Rover Defender. The 2,573-piece set features a lot of realistic elements and functions, just like all-new SUV. Things like authentic body panels and wheels, a fully independent suspension, 4WD with three differentials and a working winch makes the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender stand out.

Another suggestion, just in case
