With temperatures and snow falling fast, it’s to time to start thinking about gifts for the petrolhead in your life! Whether you’re one yourself or looking for ideas, I’ve put together a list of a few of my favorite products to help make your gift giving season a little easier!

Adam’s Polishes H2O Guard & Gloss

Adam's H2O Guard & Gloss

Its hard to recommend just one Adam’s product, since they absolutely kill it with their Christmas-themed limited edition products every year, but their H2O Guard & Gloss is an easy pick, especially for a winter detailer. Perfect for protecting paint in-between washes, it goes on slick and offers easy application (wet or dry) and shine. (Buy on Amazon)

WRX/STI OEM Trunk Hook

WRX/STI OEM Trunk Hook

If you’re like me, your WRX/STI is your everyday car. This means regular trips to the grocery store…and the struggle of keeping your bags upright on the way home. The Subaru OEM Trunk Hook provides an elegant, OEM solution to the problem! It mounts up with no modification to the trunk itself and can even fold away when not needed. (Buy on Amazon)

WRX Christmas Sweater

WRX Christmas Sweater

Some shameless self-promotion here, but my “Merry WRXmas” Christmas Sweater was a huge hit last year! I got a ton of comments on it at my work Christmas party - mostly people wondering why my sweater had pistons and a car on it… Regardless, it’s perfect for the season! (Buy on RedBubble)

Subaru String Art

Subaru String Art

I stumbled across this awesome Subaru String Art on Instagram one day and it immediately made its way onto my Christmas list! It’s homemade, Subaru-themed, and classy enough to display on your desk! What more could you ask for? (Buy on Etsy)

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Lens

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Lens

If you’ve got an aspiring photographer on your list, look no further than the Canon “Nifty Fifty” 50mm f/1.8 Lens. Its one of the most versitale budget lenses you can buy, and makes for some awesome shots. A vast majority of the shots on this blog and my Instagram were shot with this lens! (Buy on Amazon)

Adam’s Polishes Wheel Cleaner

Adam's Wheel Cleaner

Ok I lied - I didn’t pick just one Adam’s product. Their Wheel Cleaner is just too good to not include here… Plus, it’s perfect for washing off all of the snow, salt, and other road grime that accumulates over the winter! If you’re really trying to make an impression, go for the full gallon jug for the most bang for your buck! (Buy on Amazon)

Billetworkz Engraved Shift Knob

Billetworkz Engraved Shift Knob

Billetworkz is known in the Subaru community for making some awesome stuff, and their shift knobs are no exception. I picked one up myself (as an early present) and absolutely love it. The quality is incredible, and it adds a nice touch to the interior! There are tons of colors, engravings, and styles to choose from, but I went with the 6-Speed Blue Cosmic Space Knob with the Japanese engraving. (Buy from Billetworkz)

Milwaukee Tool M12 FUEL 1/2” Stubby Impact Wrench

Milwaukee Tool M12 FUEL 1/2" Stubby Impact Wrench

I may be biased, but the Milwaukee Tool M12 FUEL 1/2” Stubby Impact Wrench is the perfect tool for any car enthusiast! Having traditionally targeted the construction trades, Milwaukee has been expanding more and more into the automotive tool space and the 1/2” Stubby is their latest offering. With over 250 ft-lbs of force in a package only 4.6” in length, it’s perfect for removing bolts in tight spaces. Its also perfect for safely removing/fastening lug nuts, since it has an auto-shutoff mode to prevent over-tightening bolts. Having had the opportunity to play with it myself, I can safely say its pretty awesome! (Buy from Home Depot)

LEGO Caterham Seven 620R

LEGO Caterham Seven 620R

I can’t think of a car enthusiast who wouldn’t want this on their desk! LEGO went above and beyond with the details on this model. Paired with the Mini Cooper or Volkswagen Beetle, it’s the perfect compliment to any collection. Just be careful - it can be a slippery slope… If you’re feeling extra generous, spring for the Bugatti Chiron! (Buy on Amazon)
