Somehow, we are nearing the end of the year and the festive season is upon us yet again.

John Lewis has released its Christmas advert extravaganza, which today symbolises the official start to festive preparations.

However, buying gifts for picky loved ones can sometimes make this wonderful time of year feel less than magical. To help take the stress out of your Christmas shopping this year, Warranty Direct’s elves have put together a motoring gift guide for all the petrol heads on Santa’s nice list…

BEST FOR…A STOCKING FILLER

 

Classic Top Trumps – Sports Cars

If they love their fast cars, then this game is for them. With facts about legendary models on every card, this game’s a great way to discover a few new facts while lusting after your dream cars. Don’t worry though – you don’t need to be a car lover to enjoy playing along.

£6.20 from Tesco

BEST FOR…THE INNER CHILD

 

Build your own V8 engine

 This model of a working V8 engine will keep any motoring enthusiast or budding engineer busy, with over 250 parts to assemble. Once put together it runs with illuminated spark plugs and plays V8 engine noise. If they can’t have the real thing, this won’t satisfy the longing completely – but it may keep them quiet for a while.

£49.99 from Amazon

BEST FOR…MUSIC LOVERS

 

Pure Highway 600 In-Car Digital Radio Adapter with Handsfree Calling

Help make a music lover’s commute their favourite time of day through the gift of digital radio. Digital radio can be better quality than FM with access to a much broader range of stations. The adapter sits on the dashboard of your car without changing its interior cosmetics, has no messy wires and is compatible with any car with an FM Radio. This version comes with easy music streaming and hands-free calling with a DAB adapter too.

£149 from Halfords.com

BEST FOR… the CAUTIOUS DRIVER

 

Nextbase 412gw dashcam

Give the gift of peace of mind to a motoring friend this Christmas, with a dashcam. A dashcam records your journey continuously. This can come in handy if you run into any unfortunate incidents in the future, as you can also share footage with police or insurance companies if needed.

BEST GIFT FOR… THRILL SEEKERS

 

Hot Drives & Rides Experience Day

Do you know a motoring enthusiast, for whom normal roads just don’t cut it? Give your thrill seeker friend a day to remember with a driving experience day. With this option from Getting Personal, you can choose from either a fast track ride with a professional, rally driving and off-roading – so you’re not short of options, even for the fussiest of friends and family members.

£39.99 from getting personal

BEST FOR…THE DEDICATED

 

Motoring t-shirt

This one is for the true car fans. You have to be a certain type of motoring enthusiast to want to work themed clothing. However, if your motoring friend or relative loves their cars a little too much, Petrol Threads should provide you with plenty of clothing options – so head over and pick out a something with their favourite model on to leave under the tree.

BEST FOR…THE SERIOUS DRIVER

 

Leather driving gloves

A throwback to a golden age, for those who still appreciate the fine art of driving, a sturdy pair of driving gloves could be the perfect gift to open this year. Also great for colder months, this pair from Aspinals of London is made from fine Nappa leather and come in two colours.

£95 from Aspinals of London

BEST FOR…THE PERFECTIONIST

 

Black & Decker dustbuster® Flexi® Car Vacuum

While this may not seem like the most exciting of gifts, for the right person this may  (secretly, perhaps) be their favourite present from Father Christmas. This useful hand-held vacuum will keep your prized position looking its best. The extendable hose and long crevice tool allow you to get into those hard to reach areas – a perfectionist’s Christmas wish come true.

£53.00 from Currys
