Getting a gift for a loved one is not always so easy, even when you know what they love.

Well, look no further and check out this list of five great gift ideas for the classic car enthusiast:
1) Jaguar E-Type Cufflinks
The Jaguar E-Type Cufflinks are sure to add a touch of unusual elegance to your loved one’s wardrobe.

Tin auto signs make a one of a kind gift. Such a sign captures the nostalgia of a much-treasured and bygone era. Popular gift options include customizing a tin auto sign with imagery of a classic of choice, or with the car logo.
3) Vintage Automotive Books
Any classic car enthusiast who is truly passionate about his/her classic cars will love vintage automotive books. There is a historical and cultural significance that is associated with these types of books, which include classic car manuals, encyclopedias of classic cars and even promotional pamphlets. Vintage automotive books can help readers “walk” or visualize the path of the automotive industry from its birth to its maturity, or to follow the career path of the classic race car drivers. A few examples of these books include Zip Saunders, King of the Speedway by Rex Loomis and The Romance of Motoring by T.C. Bridges, among others. A good sampling of these books can be found at http://www.abebooks.com/books/antiquarian-rare-design/collectible-antique-classic-motor-cars.shtml.
4) The Ferrari 250 GTO Cufflinks
Another iconic car of the 1960s was the 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO. In fact, this edition of the classic Ferrari car is a much sought after car, and mostly auctioned for millions of dollars to the highest bidder, largely because only 39 of these cars were ever produced. Therefore, if you cannot get a real 250 GTO Ferrari, an elegant and thoughtful alternative gift for your loved one would be a set of these handcrafted, sterling silver, Ferrari cufflinks.
5) The Art of the Classic Car Coffee Table Book
