Christmas Gifts For The Petrolhead!

Jek Ray Low
23 Dec 2020

Christmas is just around the corner! In the unique circumstances we find ourselves in this year, you may have decided to shun the crowds in the city, forgoing in-person Christmas gift shopping. It’s easy to get gifts for just about anyone but the petrolhead; online retailers are chock full of Knick Knacks that may appeal to the public en masse, but finding an item that a massive car nut would actually appreciate and use can be a touch tricky.

We feel you; apart from browsing through the general classifieds on the Carousell app, we have decided to put together a list of automotive gift ideas for the petrolheads in your life!

For The Young Ones:
MINI Balance Bike - $193.20

A bicycle is most probably everyone’s first proper set of wheels that isn’t a red and yellow plastic ride-on coupe. Sure, you can buy generic units from a supermarket chain of your choosing – but if you are a MINI aficionado and would like to instil those values into your children from a young age, consider jazzing up the all-important introduction to mobility by means of the MINI Balance Bike.

This bike has been designed as a child’s first introduction into the world of bicycles. It will fit kids over 3 years old or those that are 90cm tall. A low step through and platform, as well as an adjustable saddle and handlebar, makes for comfortable and safe riding. As you’ve come to expect from a brand with this prestige, the MINI Balance Bike is sturdy - it’s steel frame construction should render it indestructible in the hands of even the most aggressive riders. Finished in Chili Red, and with a Black handlebar with MINI’s Signet pattern, it emphasises MINI’s unique design DNA and is the perfect stepping stone into the world of MINI vehicles!

BMW R1200GS Pedal Tricycle - $188.03

If you feel that your child isn’t quite ready for a bicycle just yet, perhaps you should consider purchasing this pedal tricycle from BMW instead. It pays homage to the BMW R1200GS, offering a realistic riding posture, albeit one that is scaled to match the physical proportions of a child.

It features a flip-up seat with storage, and has been manufactured out of an eco-friendly plastic. BMW recommends this product to children aged 2 to 5 years of age!

BMW Electric R1200GS - $528.06

The electric version of the tricycle comes with all the goodies of its pedal compatriot, but with some serious extra muscle from its 12 Volt motor. The electronics have afforded this variant with additional features, such as engine sound, an MP3 interface, as well as a top speed of 4km/h.

Its 12 Volt battery should be good for 1 - 2 hours, with a recharge time of 8 - 12 hours (unlike its real life BMW i counterparts, no rapid charging is available!). It’s heavier weight of almost 13 kilograms, and the higher top speed means that your child should at least be 3 years of age before he/she should be let loose with this toy!

For The Collector (Or The Young-At-Heart!):
MINI Bulldog 2.0 - $77.13

Sticking with products from the BMW Group, MINI has introduced a new version of their iconic mascot! Dubbed the Bulldog 2.0, the aforementioned mascot now sports a bandana with MINI Wing Logo branding and a heritage inspired cord pattern. Its friendly outward appearance and movable legs mean that it appeals not just to MINI memorabilia collectors, but to children seeking some plushie companion as well!

1:43 Porsche Scale Models - Taycan 4S - $99.00, Limited Edition 911 RSR 2018 Gulf Racing - $142.00, Limited Edition 911 RSR Rothmans

If your significant other is a Porsche fanatic, remind him/her of how much you think about them by purchasing one of these scaled replicas for their workstation! The local Porsche dealer has made 3 1:43 Porsche models available for sale, and they are of the Limited Edition 911 RSR 2018 Gulf Racing, Taycan 4S, and the Limited Edition 911 RSR Rothmans.

Do not be fooled into thinking these are mere toys; the attention to detail means that the charm and charisma has been minimaturised unscathed!

Porsche Crest Cufflinks - $161.00
If you’d like a more intimate way of reminding your partner that you care about him/her and what they are into, consider purchasing these Porsche Crest Cufflinks! They are a discreet and sophisticated way to add some Stuttgarter pizzazz to your partner’s work outfit!

For The Newly Weds (Perhaps?):
Porsche 911 Soundbar - $5,889
If you know of friends that have just moved into a new home, and you’d like to avoid getting them some cliche house warming gift, considering getting them a Porsche 911 Soundbar!

Its unique form and quality construction is sure to be a talking point. The housing of the speaker has been constructed from the actual  exhaust-pipe of a 911 GT3. It then couples the high quality external shell with some seriously impressive audio hardware - the speaker outputs 200 watts, and can be rapidly paired to your smart device. The system features DTS TruSurround for a powerful audio experience!

For Our Furry Friends
HUE Ceremic Dog Bowl - Large & Small

Every dog has its day! But why not let Christmas be that day. Have your furry friend enjoy a little bit of Land Rover heritage with this lovely green dog bowl featuring an embossed HUE 166 number plate logo to the front. The bowl is available in Large and Small sizes.

Above and Beyond, you know very well that your dog is your best friend... "paw by paw by far"!

We may all be encouraged to practice social distancing physically, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice the festivities or emotional closeness. With all forms of gifting, it’s really the thought that counts, though you can’t deny the impact a fancier gift can make on the impression of the gifter!
