For the Neat Freak:

Dirt Lock Bucket Insert

Anyone who loves cars loves a clean car, but it’s probably safe to say we don’t all love the process of getting it to that clean-as-a-whistle state. Enter: Dirt Lock, an enormously helpful bucket insert that manipulates the flow of water, leaving you with only clean water as you wash your ride! Reusable and chemical and crush-resistant, it’s sure to become an instant favorite for the neat freak in your life.

For the Perfectionist:

Edgeless Microfiber Cloths

They may not be glamorous, but microfiber cloths are certainly a must have for any car owner who wants to keep their ride in tip-top shape. We love this set from Mighty Cleaner, which has an edgeless, no-hard-seams design to prevent scratching as you clean. Constructed from extra long furry fabric, these towels are also especially adept at picking up and holding grime from even the hardest to reach spots on your car. The cherry on top? The set also comes in two colors to help you color code for different uses and treatments.

For the Dreamer:

(LEGO) Lamborghini Sián FKP 37

We’d all love to give our loved ones a top-of-the-line sports car (and let’s be real, we’d love to receive one, too) but sadly, life often comes with budget constraints. If a $3M+ set of wheels isn’t an option, give your friend the next best thing — this wildly accurate (and complex) Lamborghini LEGO set, the ultimate gift for those who dream of revving engines but are stuck in the slow lane of reality. Who even needs a garage when you can have a LEGO masterpiece on your desk anyway?

Buy on Amazon | $359.99
