The Christmas season is upon us and everyone's number one priority is to find the perfect gift. Will it be something unique? Or better yet something useful? Perhaps a surprise that brings joy? What about the ideal gift that manages to combine all three? Below are 10 suggestions that will satisfy any car lover.
A coffee maker on wheels
The best accessory for coffee lovers on the go with a 12 V socket: the AutoSet espresso coffee maker. Freshly brewed coffee to enjoy during a travel break.
Where did I put my keys?
If you've heard this question too many times, the Smart Tracker key finder fob is the perfect gift. A mobile app alerts you when you put them down and walk away, and you can also make it beep to find them more easily.
For cycling enthusiasts:
The THULE rooftop bike carrier is the perfect gift for those looking for trails where they can practice their favourite sport. It features an exclusive design that firmly holds the bike upright and can withstand up to 20 kilos of weight.
Where I go, my pet goes, too
The perfect gift for those who take their pet wherever they go. A lightweight pet carrier with top and side zipped openings and fastening strap for the seatbelt to make their trip comfortable and safe.
The ecological alternative for getting around the city
Say goodbye to traffic jams and other urban agglomerations and get around freely in the city. With a top speed of 25 km/h, the SEAT eXS KickScooter gives you a scooting range of 25 km with complete independence.
For children aged 12 months and over who can't wait to get behind the wheel. A child-size CUPRA car with a padded seat for them to drive up and down the corridors at home.
Become a race driver for a day
Every motoring enthusiast dreams of driving their own car on a race track. For about 25 euros you can access the legendary Nürburgring circuit, as long as no race is scheduled, and enjoy its 23 kilometre layout with impossible curves.
Or a mini driver
Car enthusiasts aged between 7 and 13 can also drive their own car at the SEAT Traffic School in Denmark's Legoland. At the wheel of a car in the shape of the popular building blocks, youngsters learn about driving and even get their own permit.
