We are getting deep into holiday season so now is the time to start gift shopping for that special someone if you haven’t started already. To help you out, we’re going to do a series of posts for those of you out there looking for something special for that gear head in your life. To kick things off we’re going to show you five gifts for $50 and under in order of least expensive to most expensive. To go straight to the websites for any of the products you see just click on the item’s title, picture, or in its description where it says click “HERE”. Okay, let’s get started!
This is an oldie but a goodie. Its sharp, sarcastic, and controversial but damn if its not funny. JDM EGO’s plate frame calling out fake wheels is something that never gets old and makes a great stocking stuffer at only $9.99 plus shipping at iloveracing.com. Pick it up by clicking HERE.
“Speed Champions” is a new series started by LEGO earlier this year and they are must-haves for any car lover. The series started with smaller sets of specific cars like the McLaren P1, LaFerrari, and Porsche 918. However, new sets have recently become available like the Ford Mustang GT, Corvette Z06, and the Audi R18 e-Tron Quattro LeMans racer. The individual car sets are $14.99 and can be ordered directly from LEGO’s website or just about any other retailer that sells LEGO products. Check out all the Speed Champions sets by clicking HERE.
If someone loves their car, chances are they also love keeping it clean. That is why the Quick Clean kit from Surf City Garage makes for a nice gift. The kit comes with “Speed Demon” carnuba wax spray detailer to keep the exterior shiny, “Beyond Glass” window cleaner handy for those unexpected bird bomb attacks, and “Dash Away” interior cleaner which works great on just about any car interior surface type. The kit also comes with a few microfiber towels which are always handy to have around. At $32.99 its not a bad deal for everything a car nut needs to detail their ride in a pinch. Pick up the Quick Clean kit HERE.
The third game in the Forza Horizon series is easily the best one yet. In Forza Horizon 3, the Horizon Festival is brilliantly moved to Australia which provides a whole wealth of locations and road types to drive on. There are hundreds of cars to play with, and tons of events which are now completely customizable thanks to the new Blueprint mode. The game also looks absolutely beautiful, especially when played on an Xbox One S which can output HDR colors with the proper TV set. Also, buying Forza Horizon 3 “Play Anywhere” digital version gets you the game for the Xbox One console and PC.
*Normally, Forza Horizon 3 goes for $59.99. But right now you can get the game on sale for $39.99 if you get it from the Microsoft Store website by clicking HERE. We’re not sure how long this sale will last though so move quick!
