It’s that time of year again! The time when we all start to think about what we will get our loved ones for the holidays. We know they love cars, but just what exactly do they want to unwrap on Christmas morning? Don’t worry about it anymore, Short Shift has you covered.
Almost all automotive manufacturers make your run-of-the-mill gifts like hats, clothing, pens, and bags, but only the very best will go the extra mile to bring something truly unique. We spent almost an hour scouring the entire internet to find you the best automotive gift ideas for that special someone. Check ’em out!
Mercedes-Benz Trilby Hat | $64.50
A Trilby hat tries really hard not to be a fedora by having a slightly different brim, but it isn’t fooling anyone. However, a black felt fedora is perfect because how else do you let people know that you just got out of your Mercedes?
This shameless pun basically sells itself.
Lamborghini Candle Set | $40.00
When you think of a screaming 700 hp V10, a candle doesn’t usually come to mind. But think about it… they both produce fire and they both smell. These Lambo candles come in red, green, or white and they are $40.00 each. We’ll stick with 2 for $20 at Yankee Candle.
Ford Mustang Eau De Toilette | $36.00
The description says “sequoia, sandalwood and musk enhance the sexy signature of this ultra-masculine scent”, but the name still translates to “toilet water”.
Nissan Plastic Party Cup | $2.50
Nothing says fratboy like stumbling out of your Nissan Juke with your Nissan plastic party cup. Cheers!
Subaru Dog Family Puzzle | $4.50
Want to ensure that you spend less than 5 minutes doing family activities this holiday season? Then this 35 piece, Subaru themed puzzle is the gift for you!
The only details for this on Mitsubishi’s site are “contact dealership for more info”.
Audi Mini Quattro Trailer | $79.00
If you already got your toddler the Mini Quattro, why not get them half of a Mini Quattro with a hitch on it? It’s perfect for carrying all of the other toys your young one would much rather have.
1962 Ferrari 268 SP Front End Replica | $18,250.00
$18,000?! It must be the entire car. No? Well then it must at least be full size. What? You’re saying it’s only 1/12th the original size and made of aluminum? You must be joking.
Kia is taking this whole hamster thing a little too far. Still, for less than $10 bucks, it’s the perfect accent for your $60,000 K900 interior.
Porsche Gold Computer Mouse | $99.00
What more could a Porsche lover want than a golden computer mouse that doesn’t really look like a Porsche? This will be a great stocking stuffer.
Volkswagen Not Your Boyfriend’s GTI Briefs | $12.00
If you like your women in men’s underwear AND you love hot hatches, then this is the gift for her. It even has the “Fast” rabbit logo on the butt so you can make all kinds of jokes.
Cadillac Windsor Picnic Basket | $455.00
We didn’t tell you this, but you can also buy a nice picnic basket at Target for about $80. You will miss out on the tiny Cadillac logo, however.
This is by far the coup de grâce. We bet that if you checked every child’s Christmas list in the world, they would all include a stuffed Honda mini-van.
