Gifts for him

by Elisa Parry

Men can be tricky to buy for… Usually because if they want something, chances are, they’ve already gone out and bought it for themselves. Which is why it’s always safer to give an experience instead of a gift. And it just so happens we have plenty of experiences that make the perfect gift they’re bound to love.

If you’ve got a revhead on your hands, you can’t go wrong with gifting them a V8 experience. They can get behind the wheel, or are sit back and let the professionals take the reins on a hot lap experience. Either way, they’ll be reaching speeds of up to 200kmp/h on some of the best race tracks around Australia. It’s the ultimate thrill ride!

Sports car and luxury car hire

If he’s more interested in the style of the car, rather than how fast it goes, you could always gift him a luxury car hire experience. Don’t get us wrong, there’s still plenty of opportunities to put the pedal to the metal in a Lamborghini. But those wanting a more relaxed Sunday drive could always opt for a 1965 Ford Mustang convertible or a GT500 Mustang.
