Trying to find that perfect holiday gift for car lovers? We know the holiday season is somehow always a hectic one… Between career, familial, and social obligations, there scarcely seems time to breathe before the season’s already over. This year, don’t get caught unawares. We’ve put together a gift-guide to make your holiday season a little easier. Here are some unique gift ideas for the car lovers in your life:

Drivin gloves – Take them back to the golden age of motor-racing with a pair of driving gloves. Whether in a vintage throwback style or a more modern cut, you can’t go wrong with this classy gift. They’ll get cool points, get a better grip on the wheel, and protect their hands from the aging effects of the sun. It’s a win-win-win. This European-inspired set in traditional cognac from ZARA is a nice starting point: http://www.zara.com/us/en/man/accessories/gloves-and-umbrellas/perforated-driving-gloves-c677510p3645896.html

These stylized and artistic pieces are minimalist and beautiful, making them a stylish addition to any home. Select from over 40 prints: http://www.petrolified.com/

Jerry can hip flask. Of course, you should never drink and drive, but this slick flask is great for when you’re partying with a DD, or for that person who has everything else. Fits up to 6oz.

This piece of Ferrari merch in black is a bit less conspicuous than most of the flashy bright red pieces you’ll typically find emblazoned with the Ferrari logo. In contrast, this slick black mug is cool and more subdued, while still providing the pizazz of the spotlighted Ferrari logo.
