VroomGirls Holly Jolly Gift Guide

We’ve got last-minute gift ideas for the female (and male) Car Lover on Your List in our very own Holiday Gift Guide. Here are 13 chic presents that are sure to set her (and his!) heart racing.

Snow Much Fun

Does she have a need for speed? Ferrari is offering the ultimate Winter Driving Experience in January that includes two days of non-competitive instruction in 8 new FF vehicles on a snow and ice-covered track in Aspen, Colorado. The package also includes two nights of accommodations at the Little Nell Resort, champagne reception, photo package, event memorabilia and more. ($11,300; experienceferrari.com/wde)

Gadgets To Go

Her laptop bag was never so organized: The new Grid-It! Wrap is a rubberized woven-elastic organization system that protects her Macbook Air, iPad or e-Reader while accessories are held snugly in place for the ride. Not a techie? Try the Sun Visor Grid-It! (from $25; cocooninnovations.com)

History’s Raciest Ladies

It’s been a long road for women to sidestep male resistance from the inner circles of the motoring world. Fast Ladies: Female Racing Drivers from 1888 to 1970 by Jean-François Bouzanquet traces the colorful history of the first ladies of motor racing during the last century with more than 40 portraits of daring women who took part in speed records events, rallies and Grand Prix races. (£14.99; veloce.co.uk)

Motorcade of Coziness

One of Pendleton’s first products, the fringed, 100% virgin wool Motor Robe was originally adapted from shipboard “steamer rugs” to later warm the laps of early automobile passengers—and rumored to have been a stock item in every early Model T sold. The new Roll-Up Motor Robe comes with a handy leather-strap carrier and is ideal for impromptu picnics or warming up at outdoor sporting events and gatherings. ($88.00; pendleton-usa.com)

Queen of the Road

What’s the next best thing to buying her a brand-new Lamborghini, Bentley or Corvette for Christmas? Giving her a chance to get revved up behind the wheel of all three. World Class Driving offers Road Tour and “200MPH Challenge” Racing packages to experience up to five exotic supercars a day in 45 cities across the U.S. (from $299; worldclassdriving.com)

Roll With It

The new Ferrari Travel Trolley is as sleek and sporty as its namesake. Made from durable polycarbonate, the trolley features roomy interior pockets, laundry and shoe bag, rubber-grip handle and with four rolling wheels made to mimic their trademark California alloy rims. Choose from Daytona Black or Racing Red. (from $327; store.ferrari.com)

American Beauty

Does she prefer road trip destinations of natural, scenic beauty? From Mount Rushmore to the Grand Canyon, the America the Beautiful Annual Pass gives the driver and up to 3 passengers unlimited access to more than 2,000 National Parks around the U.S. for a full year. Pass includes mirror hangtag and brochure of participating parks. ($80; store.usgs.gov/pass)

Make A Splash

She won’t mind getting caught in the rain with the fashionable new polka-dotted Wet Wellie Rain Boots by VW. These tall and versatile rubber boots feature pull-on styling with double-buckle closure and a one-inch, non-slip heel to keep her feet warm and toasty. ($50; drivergear.vw.com)

On Location

Live in cold climates? Now her car can always be warmed up in the winter months with the Viper SmartStart system, which can unlock doors, start the engine remotely or send a security alert to her smartphone if alarm is activated. Parents will also appreciate the GPS location alerts, should teens drive beyond set proximities or speed limits. The Viper SmartStart app is a free download for iPhone, Blackberry and Android; works with SmartStart in-car control module. ($299; viper.com/smartstart)

Traveling Gourmet

Car campers and weekend adventurers will love the Pinnacle Camper Cookware, a BPA-free culinary and tableware set for 4 from GSI Outdoors. The colorful, compact design features 3- and 2-liter pots with strainer lids, 9.75-inch fry pan/serving plate, pot gripper, serving bowls and insulated mugs packaged for easy, nested storage within a welded stuff sack that doubles as a wash basin. Bon appétit! ($130; gsioutdoors.com)

Fancy Footwork

The low-cut Prototipo is Piloti’s first Touring shoe to pair new Evolution bottom-cushioning with their patented “Roll Control” heel to maximize driving pleasure and pedal control. Road tested by top racing drivers at Le Mans, the Prototipo Driving Shoe is made from high-quality suede and mesh to provide fit and performance—on the track or the street. ($85; piloti.com)

Photo Finish

Using digital photo printing technology, Photo Car Covers has developed a unique dust cover of breathable enviro-tex material that is also a custom-made replica of your own car. Now, she can show off her vehicle and protect it from dirt and grime—at the same time! (Price varies per square footage of material used; photocarcovers.com)

Shop Talk

For DIY ladies that like to take matters into their own hands, Dare to Repair Your Car and The Garage Girl’s Guide are indispensible do-it-herself manuals – written by women for women – with everything she needs to know to fix and maintain her personal vehicle. (from $15, amazon.com)
