Comments (0) Lifestyle


Are you the type that always struggles to find a gift for that special man in your life? Whether it is your significant other, your dad, extended family member, or just a male friend, finding a gift that guys actually like and get excited over isn’t always easy. This is where it can be useful to think about their hobbies and what excites them and work around that theme.

If the male in your life happens to be a “petrolhead”, in other words a guy who just can’t get enough of motorcycles and cars, then here are some awesome gift ideas that are sure to hit the mark.

A T-Shirt That Says It All

One thing that petrolheads tend to have in common is the fact they share a passion for motor vehicles, and they love to broadcast that passion to the world. What better way to do that than with a fun slogan t-shirt such as this BRAAP shirt by BRAAP Amsterdam.

The BRAAP shirt is made specifically for those who love hitting the open road and really pushing their engine to its limit. You’ll find a variety of styles, logos/slogans, and sizes to choose from, which means you’re sure to find the perfect match. Take for example the “Keep Calm and BRAAP BRAAP” shirt or the “Eat. Sleep. BRAAP. Repeat” t-shirt, which are both definite top gifts.

Their Favourite Model in Replica Version

Another great option is to get a toy model of their favourite car or motorcycle that comes pre-assembled or that they will assemble themselves. This is ideal for petrolheads who enjoy collections and may already have a model collection on the go.

A Magazine Subscription

Magazine subscriptions can also be great gift ideas for those hard to buy for individuals. The great news is that when it comes to cars and motorcycles, there are literally dozens, if not 100s of different titles that could appeal to them. The great thing about a magazine subscription is that it’s not a one-time gift either; they will continue to receive a new copy all year long, giving them something to look forward to each month.

High End Driving Gloves

Driving gloves are one of those things that many people won’t splurge on for themselves, but if given as a gift, they are cherished. You could go with a racing style glove or something more luxurious like a soft leather driving glove. Obviously, the gloves will differ in type/style depending on if the guy in your life has a car or motorcycle.

The Ultimate Car/Motorcycle Care Kit

The final gift idea is one that you can customise for the recipient. You can put together a gift basket of all the must-haves when it comes to cleaning, detailing, and polishing supplies. This will give them the chance to get out there and put the work and love into their hobby.

You Can’t Go Wrong

Each of these ideas is simple and easy to find, and will have a huge impact with the male petrolhead in your life.
