Looking for Black Friday gift ideas for the gearhead in your life? Don’t worry, we have a few suggestions to share and none of them have a risk of spontaneously combusting. We found three items that we think any gear head would love to get this holiday season. If that special someone in your life loves cars, they are going to love everything on this list.

LEGO Technic Ford F-150 Raptor

We think one of the best Black Friday gift ideas for a car enthusiast is one of the various automotive-themed Lego sets. You can find anything from a Toyota Supra to a McLaren Senna. If you have a little more to spend you can opt for some of the larger sets such as the hard-to-get Lamborghini Sian.

However, this year we are going to recommend the Lego Technic Ford F-150 Raptor set. It is relatively easy to find and it is a set that features lots of fun details. It has a working suspension system, all the doors can open including the truck bed, a knob above the cab allows you to turn the wheels, and it has a moving V6 engine under the hood.

The set even comes in the “Code Orange” color available on the real Ford F-150 Raptor. Any gearhead would appreciate the opportunity to build and display a Lego set like this.

Forza Horizon 5

In our opinion when it comes to Black Friday gift ideas for gearheads, it is hard to top a good racing game. Forza Horizon 5 was recently released and so far it has received nothing but stellar reviews. The Xbox exclusive game features hundreds of cars for players to choose from. So, if the enthusiast in your life has a favorite car, chances are it is already in Forza Horizon 5 or will come to the game later.

Forza Horizon 5 features a massive open-world map that has various terrains for players to explore. There are also tons of in-game events both online and offline so you’ll never run out of things to do.

We know that the new Xbox consoles are really difficult to get but the good news is that Forza Horizon 5 is also available for previous-gen consoles like the Xbox One and on PC. With a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, the game can even be played on the go with streaming to a mobile device.

Forza Horizon 5 is potentially the best gearhead gift someone could get this year.

3 Things to Watch Out for During Black Friday Car Shopping

Right so this is not exactly the cheapest of our Black Friday gift ideas but hear us out. The Jaguar F-TYPE is one of the most beautiful cars ever made! Who wouldn’t want to see this sleek coupe in their driveway with a big bow on it? It has tons of power and can be had in convertible form if that special car enthusiast in your life enjoys the wind in their hair (or scalp, we don’t judge here).

Sure, the F-TYPE may have a starting MSRP of $71,300 but can you really put a price on someone’s happiness? Alright, you probably can. However, that still does not change the fact that a 2021 Jaguar F-TYPE is easily one of the best Black Friday gifts that someone could get.

If you get this car for that special someone in your life and they don’t like it, please let us know. We’ll totally take it off your hands for you.
