Men love gadgets, grills, and cars. It's a fact. And in that fact, sometimes men love their cars so much, that it becomes a form of significant other. We may find ourselves competing for masculine attention against a sleek Porsche with a hot bod. But the secret to winning this battle? Killing it with car-ness.
Think about it. He loves his car so much that you get him a scaled-down artisan model of his baby, and boom, immediate legendary status. Going the extra mile to show you care about something he cares (a lot) about will speak volumes. We had the experts on Volkswagen's Accessory Team weigh in: "If you can’t buy a car as a gift, bigger-ticket items such as trips to a destination car show, racing school classes, or an exotic car membership and leasing program where you have access to various luxury, sport and super cars for on and off track use make great gifts for those who love cars." Trust us (and the experts)—whatever you gift you settle on, it's going to be gas.
