4 Car-Themed Sweetest Day Gift Ideas for Men

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Sweetest Day originally started back in 1921, in Cleveland. A committee of 12 candy makers —  dubbed the “Sweetest Day in the Year Committee” — wanted to promote candy sales in light of that October’s pre-holiday season slump. Although the group also gave away 19,500 boxes of candy to orphans and the less fortunate, the Sweetest Day campaign turned into an annual event.

Today, Sweetest Day has morphed into a second Valentine’s Day event to celebrate romantic relationships. Many people who celebrate it view this occasion primarily as a holiday for men. If you fall into this camp, you might be wondering what to give the special man in your life this Saturday. Here are four auto-themed gift ideas to consider.

Bluetooth FM transmitter

This is a great gift idea for a guy with an older vehicle model that lacks high-tech features like Bluetooth and hands-free phone-calling. The gadget plugs into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter port and will sync with his smartphone so he can access playlists. Additionally, it has a built-in 5V port so he can use it to charge electronics more quickly.

Bungee cords

What better present to bestow on a frequent road-tripper (or camper) than this badass bundle of bungee cords? ABS coated metal hooks will help shield his vehicle’s outer shell from scratches. The cords themselves have a 185-pound maximum break strength to tenaciously secure belongings to the roof. This set also comes with canopy ties, ball bungees, and an organizer bag.

Engine replica

If the man in your life has a penchant for Chevy, this build-your-own replica of a Chevy Street Rod engine is sure to put a smile on his face. The model features plastic injected molding accessories and a die-cast engine. It also includes a removable oval air cleaner with chrome-plated valve covers, an air conditioning pump, and pulleys.

Driving shoes

These fashionable driving moccasins will enhance your guy’s style while giving him an extra grip when his foot touches his car’s pedal. The segmental textured rubber sole is flexible and supportive enough for walking, not just driving. If your man spends a good deal of time behind the wheel, this gift will be a thoughtful one.
