Get ready to be the best gift-giver out there.
As crazy as it sounds, the Holidays are right around the corner and they’ll be here before you know it. If you missed all those Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, we’ve got you covered with a wide range of ideas for your gearhead – or even yourself. We’re not going to suggest that you go drop thousands of dollars on gifts, either, because not everyone has the budget for a brand new car or destination driving school experience. So, let’s get started with those gifts!
Gear.Club Unlimited 2
We all know that the ‘Forza’ franchise rules the racing world, but it’s only available for Xbox and the new Gear.Club Unlimited 2 (released December 4th), is bringing high-octane racing fun to the Nintendo Switch. Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is the only racing game with licensed vehicles with brands such as McLaren, Porsche, Mercedes-AMG, Pagani, Bugatti, BMW, and more on the Nintendo Switch. Users will be able to utilize a Performance Shop that allows gamers access to seven workshops where they can do things like upgrade/tune their car’s engine and gearboxes, use a wind tunnel to improve aerodynamics, shed weight, throw on new tires, and more. Gamers can customize with exterior modifications and create your own livery with graphics. As an added bonus, the cars are able to be modified to compete on sand tracks in ‘Rally Mode’. Simply put, this racing game has everything you need to have fun.
Heel Tread Socks
Made in Portugal, these socks are perfect for any automotive enthusiast. Each sock design is inspired by a car and their colors/patterns/liveries reflect the heritage of the vehicle. There are six different collections such as ‘German Perfection’, ‘Rally Legends’, ‘Pit Stoppers’, ‘Italian Flair’, ‘American Muscle’, and ‘British Charm’. All socks are available in a calf-high ‘Regular’ style with a selection of ankle-high ‘Low’ socks also available.

Everyone needs a solid pair of sunglasses for driving and these are a great choice.
Autodromo Stringback Driving Gloves
Nothing connects you to your car like a good pair of driving gloves. The feel of the steering wheel and grabbing the shift knob is a classic, vintage thrill that is a joy to experience. Autodromo’s Stringback Driving Gloves are inspired by those worn by racers in the ‘50s and ‘60s with soft leather to grip and protect your palms, and a stringback to keep hands cool. A short cuff makes them perfect for the watch-wearer as well.
LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron
The Bugatti Chiron is one of the most advanced, complex, and powerful high-end machines to ever hit the pavement. If you don’t have the millions to shell out for the actual car, you can spend a fraction of the cost of the exotic for the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron. This 3,599-piece set is a 1:8 scale model and features a moving W-16 engine and gearbox. The attention-to-detail is spectacular and will put a smile on any gearhead’s face.
