10 Innovative Holiday Gift Ideas For Car-Loving Guys From Their Guy-Lovin' Gals


Guys who love cars are often the hardest people to buy gifts for – if it's car-related and they like it, they've probably already bought it for themselves.

5) Vintage Car and Truck Hood Furniture


Joel Hester of Dallas-based Weld House scrounges the scrap yards of Texas, seeking out car & truck hoods suitable for reincarnation into desks, coffee tables, storage cabinets and more. If the prospective slabs of sheet metal happen to be discolored, sun-faded, custom-painted or all of the above, so much the better. That's what you call “character” and that's the whole point.

Yeah, we know books are losing the media battle to virtual information but any decent car-lover realizes the true value of original automotive literature, shop manuals and the like. These gnarly Car Book Ends combine the timeless allure of a classic red muscle car with the gritty texture of non-slip embossed sheet metal. (new automotive gift idea image via SendSational Gifts
