With the holiday season nearly upon us, it’s time to start thinking about what would make a great gift for the Corvette enthusiast in your life. Or, conversely, what you may want to “suggest” to your family and friends as to what would make a great gift.
Well, worry not! We’ve searched, we’ve scrounged, we’ve dug deep into the small corners of the web to find some of the best Corvette themed gifts for this holiday season… or any season, for that matter! Everything from socks, to books, to garage signs, we’ve searched for them all!
Note: we have posted links to the products we call out here. Some of these products are available on Amazon or eBay, where we have an affiliate relationship. If you purchase a model via these links, we may receive a small commission (at no additional cost to you). This is how we fund our site 🙂
Corvette owners do sometimes need to kick their feet up and relax too. Why not do so with a bit of humor while keeping your feet warm in the cold winter months? One-size-fits-all blended polyester and wool socks are guaranteed to keep feet comfortable and are easily machine washable.
Like many others that drive, or admire, Corvettes, sometimes a little coffee is needed to get the brain turned over and rumbling like a Chevy V8. If you need to take your caffeine on the go, this travel mug is the perfect companion. We like the contoured body and heavy duty rubber grip for your fingers and palm to ensure you get a solid grip. A twist-seal lid means no spillage, and the entire mug is stainless steel for ease of cleaning, as well as all parts being dishwasher safe
The only thing we don’t like about this calendar is that it doesn’t have pictures of the 2020 Corvette C8 in it! However, since that Corvette has not even had its final consumer model fully finalized, we’ll just have to live with admiring pictures of C6 and C7 generation ‘Vette’s instead…. which bothers us so much 🙂 12 inches square, a perfect calendar for the home office or wherever you want to hang it.
On the theme of the home office, this stylish business card holder won’t look out of place on any desk. We love the fact that it’s wood, laminated to protect against any accidental bumps or drops. And, of course, we love the little C7 Z06 guarding your cards with its aggressive stance. Put together, this may even be worth putting on your desk at work so you’re never far from a Corvette.
The Complete Book Of Corvette, 2014 Update by Mike Mueller
While this book may be from 2014, we still recommend it in 2019 and beyond because it is one of the best coffee table books about the Corvette that we’ve come across. Well written, with plenty of pictures from each generation, including some contributions from Chevrolet themselves from their archives. As well, Mike Mueller is a renowned author of multiple books on American muscle cars and this book is held in high regard, with 304 pages of nothin’ but ‘Vette
We… don’t really have much to say about this one, and we can’t even mount a defense that this isn’t the perfect gift for the Corvette nut in your life. This mug comes in either an 11 oz/325 mL or 15 oz/445 mL size, and describes absolutely everyone that works at Corvsport with simple, straight up facts.
If you like your mugs a little more factory-authorized, look no further than this mug. 16 oz of coffee holding ceramic awesomeness, matte black outside, glossy black inside (the reverse of how this author would have his C7 Stingray, by the way), fully dishwasher safe and fully authorized by Chevrolet. Heavy duty ceramic also means that the mug has nice heft, just like sliding home the shifter on a C6 from 2nd to 3rd.
Made of 100% polyester, this throw blanket bears the C7 logo in on a bold red back ground with black trim. A perfect blanket to wrap around yourself during the colder months so you can watch the C7.R and soon, the C8.R, tear up GT racing at Le Mans and IMSA in supreme comfort. As well, this blanket is large enough that if needed, it can serve as a twin-size bedspread if you have any younger Corvette fans in your home.
Zora Arkus-Duntov – The Legend Behind Corvette by Jerry Burton
A highly rated, lovingly written biography of the man that had the vision to bring Corvette to the fore of the American sports car industry. If you’re anything like us here at Corvsport, we love to know all we can about all the legends, the history, the fateful decisions that led to a small sketch becoming a classic car that became a muscle car icon. A definite must for any Corvette fan that wants to know how it all started.
If you have a Corvette, the perfect sign to hang in your garage for where your baby sleeps. If you don’t have a Corvette, the perfect sign to hang in your garage for where you baby of the future will sleep. Either way, it is a perfect sign to hang in your garage! 8 inches x 12 inches, embossed aluminum with two bolt/screw/nail holes for secure mounting to the wall.
A great sign for a Corvette fan or owner, it doesn’t limit what car is parked in front of it like the one above! Also perfect for hanging pretty much anywhere in your home, or if you’re like many of us, above your collection of Corvette models and die-casts. Approximately 10 inches x 9.5 inches measured at farthest points.
It has made us wonder a few times how one would get a Christmas tree home if a Corvette was the only car we could use… This ornament is perfectly in line with the humorous images we all had in our heads, tie “tie it to the roof and drive like hell” style, and as such we can’t help but recommend it as a great gift. It’ll make any Corvette fan laugh, or at the very least smile, and will look great on a Christmas tree!
On the whole Christmas theme, there of course are the classic ugly sweater competitions at most offices and workplaces. You can show both your dedication to everyone’s favorite American sports car, as well as potentially winning the ugly sweater competition in this stylishly “ugly” sweater! To us, it really isn’t that ugly, but we might be slightly biased in that regard…
A great sign to put on the door of your home office, hang on the wall of your garage, or above your collection of Corvette Stingray models. We love this sign because on the Etsy page, you can select pretty much any size you want it to be, from 4 inches x 18 inches all the way up to 9 inches x 36 inches, and have it in a wide range of colors.
Chevy Corvette: Yes It’s Fast, No You Can’t Drive It Wooden Wall Sign
One of the greatest things about Etsy is that you will sometimes come across what, for specifically passionate craftsmen, is a labor of love. We were immediately impressed by the look and quality of this sign, as well as by the artist’s use of reclaimed 3/4 inch knotty pine wood. The intentionally distressed look of the sign, the tongue in cheek message that many Corvette owners tell people that ask to drive their cars, everything about it makes it a great gift. The price we listed here is for the smallest sign at 16.5 inches x 28 inches, but you can order up to 38.5 inches x 72 inches.
