Ferrari is most famous for its breathtaking sports cars, which are some of the best cars ever manufactured but the Maranello carmaker is equally good at marketing and merchandising. You can find virtually any item with their logo on it, from coffee mugs to pillows, so buying something for a Ferrari fan should not be a tough task

The first suggestion is aimed more towards the little Ferrari fan, although a grown kid like myself also enjoys building a Lego set. This one is an inventive F8 Tributo replica that looks surprisingly similar to the real thing.

The Danish toymaker redefined the notion of both toys and puzzles with their amazing sets. They are incredibly fun to build and stimulate divergent thinking.

This high-quality set features 275 individual pieces that come with easy-to-use building instructions. It also contains some stickers, and getting them right is surely the hardest part of this build. You can order this officially licensed set from Lego’s official store for only $20.

Bburago – LaFerrari Matt Black Signature Series 1/18 Diecast Model

For most car fans, it all started with toy cars, so even in adulthood we are attracted to them. There are several brands that have a history of creating quality scale models, or toy cars for grownups.

One of them is Italian manufacturer Bburago, which has built many officially licensed Ferrari models through the years. The build quality has decreased since being purchased by Maisto’s parent company, but they still make some nice models.

One of them is the La Ferrari Matt Black Signature Series, a 1:18 scale model that faithfully replicates the first hybrid road car Ferrari has ever built. The doors, hood and frunk, and steering are all functional; it features a highly detailed interior, engine, high-gloss wheels, and even the Brembo braking system is accurately reproduced. It can be ordered online from Amazon or Walmart for around $70.

Scuderia Ferrari Pista Stainless Steel Watch

It might not be a smartwatch, but you don’t see any Ferrari EVs out there, do you? Like the carmaker, its fans tend to appreciate old mechanical things like good old fashioned V12 engines, so they are sure to appreciate an official Scuderia Ferrari stainless steel timepiece.

The quality 1.73-inch Pista watch features a gritty design with a stainless-steel bracelet, engraved Ferrari logos, and a black dial with textured stripes inspired by the Imola racetrack surface.

The watch also includes Rosso Corsa accents, the iconic red paint used on the actual cars. It can be ordered directly from the manufacturer’s official store for $180.

Every car fan dreams of driving a Ferrari, but the ones who are fanatical about the brand want to race one. It might prove difficult and expensive to do that in real life, but thanks to video games and this steering wheel, that dream can become a (virtual) reality in the comfort of a living room.

The Thrustmaster T300 is one of the most capable racing wheels for PC and console out there, offering next-gen force feedback technologies through its brushless motor, providing a very accurate racing feel.

This model comes with a high-quality 599XX EVO replica wheel wrapped in Alcantara. It has a diameter of 11.8 inches (30 cm), fully programable buttons, paddle shifters, and a three-pedal base. It can be ordered online on various platforms for around $700.

The Ultimate Gift: The Ferrari Experience

I if you want to give a car fan the experience of their lifetime as a Christmas gift, there is a thing called the Ferrari Experience offered by the good folks at Exotics Racing in Las Vegas.

There are four models to choose from, including the F430 F1, 488 GTB, F8 Tributo, and 488 Pista, which can be driven on a racetrack with 1-on-1 coaching from a professional racing instructor.

It isn’t as expensive as you would think, with prices starting at around $270 for five laps. There is also a 20-lap pack that starts at $840 to turn the experience into a legitimate track day. The track is located just 20 minutes from the Vegas strip and just 40 minutes from downtown LA.

Similar experiences can be had on other continents as well. In Europe, fans can rent a Ferrari and drive them on legendary tracks like the epic Nürburgring.

So, whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a child or an adult that loves cars, a Ferrari-themed product is always a safe bet with an overwhelming abundance of choices. Whether you go for one of the items we listed above or find something different, you’re sure to make someone very happy this Christmas.
