Check out our top 10 gift ideas for the car enthusiast here!
1. Olixar inVent Mini Portable Universal Air Vent Smartphone Car Holder
First up, the Olixar inVent Smartphone Car Holder. A favourite of some of the guys here at PumpPal, we love the Olixar holder for its clean, simple and efficient design. The holder is sturdy, fits almost any phone and simply slots into the air vent on your dashboard. For just under £10, you can't go wrong and it's a great little gift to build up your own bundle of pressies for the car enthusiast. (It also doubles up as a phone stand!)

2. Carplan Winter Essentials Gift Pack
Everything you need on those cold winter mornings when you get into your car and realise it's frozen over , 500ml of Screenwash, 300ml of De-Icer & an Ice scraper for under £5. Practical and a great little stocking filler for the driver in your family!

3. ICEPLANE Twin Bladed Car Ice Scraper
The Carplan winter essentials kit might include an ice scraper but nothing lives up to the incredible ice crushing ability of the twin bladed IcePlane scraper. Two angled blades specifically designed to lift away the ice on frozen windscreens, the Iceplane is a great little gadget. Having won multiple awards, and hailed as the best on the market, the Iceplane is a great one to add to the Christmas list!

Another amazing gift for the driving enthusiast, an adrenaline-fuelled adventure is a great gift option with prices starting at around £30. We'd go for the 60 Minute 4x4 Off-Road Experience behind the wheel of the iconic Land Rover Defender or brand new Mercedes-Benz X Class.

8. Tile Mate Key Finder
We've all experienced our keys growing legs and running off only to discover they we're where we last left them. The Tile Mate is a great little gift for the car enthusiast in your life enabling them to find their lost keys using their smartphone. (It also allows you to locate your lost phone using your tile). You can attach it to many different objects and once your smartphone is within 100-foot Bluetooth signal of the Tile, it'll start the hunt. As you get closer to the lost object the signal will get stronger and the distinctive melody of the Tile can be heard.
Buy it here: Amazon £15.49
9. Personalised number plate
What could be a more personal gift, than a personalised number plate. A personalised number plate can be bought for around £250+ plus depending on your configuration of numbers and letters but this is a gift that will stand the test of time & may even gain more value over time!
Buy it here: DVLA Registrations £250+
