I once got a block of cheese for Christmas. Just that, a block of cheese, sitting under a Christmas tree in a nice felt bag with a ribbon on top of it. I did get other presents, but that heavy piece of dairy product is what sticks to my mind when remembering all of the Christmas presents I’ve ever received. I did consume it throughout a relatively concise period of time, but I didn’t need much time to realize there just might be presents I would enjoy more. One might go on a rational route of asking Santa Claus for clothing, or if you’re a seasoned chef – some grilling accessories for preparing your favourite meals.
However, we are not normal people. We car centric enthusiasts, who giggle out of joy whenever an interesting car passes by, or we receive a car related thoughtful gift. And since Christmas is just around the corner, here’s our list of the perfect gifts for any petrolhead from our Dyler Classic Passion Shop.
