Christmas gifts for Petrolheads, by a Petrolhead
It is better than the sweater knitted for you that you will never use..
I love Christmas 🎄, for me it is the best time of the year. I get gifts and get to eat lot of cakes and other things that make me lazy and gain a few kilos. So, my gift to all of you who are reading this are a few gifts that are perfect for Christmas for you to gift yourself.
Roue TPS - A Racing Chronograph
Roue is a company not very famous but, it makes timepieces that are affordable and classic. The TPS is a tribute timepiece to the Porsche 910, winner of the Nurburgring 1000 in 1967. It comes in three design options and are limited to a 1000 pieces. Each of the 1000 has its own model number on the back along with an embossed Porsche 910. It will cost you $290, you do get a few things for maintenance and styling in the package so it is a good deal and shipping is available worldwide. If you are unlucky and cannot get one try their CHR and CAL motor inspired models. They are more affordable and equally stylish.

Riparo Motorsports Driving Gloves
Lets face it, petrolheads need a set of driving gloves, they are an accessory that can be very affordable to very expensive, hence we come to Riparo Motorsport Driving Gloves, prices start at $20 and go till $60. Made from leather and you can get options with mesh as well. My choice - Reverse stitched Leather full finger driving gloves, it is one of their best sellers for men and women and costs $51 for men and $46 for women.

Puma BMW M Motorsport Drift Cat 5 NM
If you like going to the track you must have the proper footwear. If you are the Stig you get something FIA approved that costs £300 or if you are Drake you get Tom Fords that is worth more than both your legs. However, Since you are not the Stig and possibly his slower cousin - you go to Puma’s website and get a pair of these BMW M Motorsport Drift cat 5 NM shows for $100 functional and meant for heel and toe action. P.S. there are BMW sneakers too for the same price more for style not function.

Maisto Assembly line Model Kit
These are 1:24 assembly line car kits and they are die cast metal. Personally, have made two of them - the Ferrari Enzo and Lamborghini Murcielago. You can check them out on Maisto’s official website, they cost less than $30. Some are available on Amazon perfect which is perfect for last minute Christmas shopping. Don’t worry there are many cars models available like LaFerrari, Mustang, 53 Corvette, 69 Charger RT and on and on, so you can gift your favourite one.

Lego - any car kit or Technic
Lets face it Lego are fun and since we don’t really grow up, building them will always be fun. You can spend a fair amount on Technic which are great model cars or any other lego models do perfectly well. You do know where to get them so I don’t need to worry about that.
