Hey slackers! Got your Valentine’s Day gifts yet? If not, E3 Spark Plugs has a few lovely ideas for the car buff who stole your heart. They range from the practical to the pricey, but they’re all a romantic little something that any auto enthusiast will love.
- Gearshift bottle stopper: No doubt the wine and champagne will be flowing tonight. So this bottle stopper designed after a 5-speed gearshift will come in handy immediately. Made with stainless steel and a cherry wood knob, it’s available online from the Wine Enthusiast.
- Seatbelt totes: If the car lover you love is also a lover of all things eco-friendly, he or she will love a selection from Harvey’s, maker of the Original Seatbeltbag. Purses, backpacks, laptop carriers, wallets, dopp kits, makeup cases, etc. are made from real recycled seatbelt material in shiny, vibrant hues. Available online and in stores nationwide.
- Gift basket: This is a great way to load up your love with items that will keep him or her safe and in style on the road. Search online for pre-made baskets, or fill a basket or carwash bucket with items of your own choosing. A few suggestions: car wash and buffing products; books or magazines about classic, vintage or muscle cars; a tire gauge; jumper cables; a battery charger; a flashlight; a car-themed t-shirt or tank top; a GPS navigator; an MP3 FM transmitter; a remote starter system; and, of course, a set of E3 car spark plugs or truck spark plugs.
- A driving adventure: Tickets to a favorite car show or museum allow for shared experience. But if you really want to rev the engines, opt for a driving adventure like the DFW Drive Your Dream supercar experience. For a price your love can get behind the wheel of an Audi R8, Lamborghini Murcielago or Ferrari. You’ll get a briefing on the nuances of driving an exotic car, then hit the road for a tour over a predetermined course. Ride-along tours allow the two of you to experience driving and riding in the car of your choice. DFW Drive Your Dream has five locations in Texas, but similar driving adventure companies dot the nation. Just do an online search.
From all of us here at E3, have a safe and happy Valentine’s Day!
