Top Gifts One Can Give to an F1 Fan

Know an F1 fan whose birthday is on the way? Here are some gifts you can present to that special one!

In European and certain American countries, Formula One is a big thing and therefore, there is no dearth of Formula One fans. However, in India, Formula One fans are a rare breed. Therefore, F1-based merchandises are also rare in the nation. In case you know a diehard F1 fan whose birthday is on the way, but you do not know what to gift them, you have accessed the perfect article. In the following paragraphs, we have listed some of the top F1-based gifts one can present to a hardcore F1 fan.

Scaled-down or miniature helmets

On the internet, there are several firms that sell miniature or scaled-down versions of F1 helmets belonging to real racers. From Ayrton Senna to Michael Schumacher’s helmets, one can find the miniature versions of any racer’s helmet on the internet. However, note that the miniature helmets are expensive and since they are hard to come across in India, you might have to import one from some foreign country. In short, expensive price-tag along with hefty tax and delivery charges.

Actual replica helmets used by racers

If your budget is really high, you can gift an actual replica helmet of a racer’s helmet. Similar to miniature versions, replicas of actual helmets are sold by many companies. However, actual helmet replicas are extremely expensive because they are made of high-quality material used in real F1 helmets. Not to forget, the overall build quality of those helmets is way better than the average motorcycle helmets found in the local markets.

Miniature F1 cars

Another brilliant thing you can gift to a diehard F1 fan is a miniature or scaled-down version of Formula One cars. There are plenty of online stores that sell a scaled-down version of Formula One cars in various ratios, such as 1:12, 1:18 and more. Some of the miniature versions are sold with the official signatures of the racers. However, similar to actual helmets, miniature F1 cars are expensive because they are not toys but are collectables.

Other merchandises

Last but not the least, there are other merchandises one can gift such as official Formula One t-shirts, caps, jerseys, jackets, mugs, posters, keyrings, stickers, badges, F1 video games, F1 steering wheel, racing simulators and F1 television subscription.
