It's difficult knowing what gifts to get so soon after Christmas. Hub is an F1 racing fanatic, and whilst I can't yet afford to buy him tickets for Silverstone (one day!) I wanted to get him an F1-inspired surprise.
Etsy came up trumps as usual. There are various F1-themed gifts on there from UK selllers; here are some of my favourites.
It's an ashtray or coin tidy with carbon fiber centre, made using a 4th gear ratio from the gearbox of a 700+ bhp Honda F1 racecar driven by Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello!
It came in a black gift box with a card explaining it's history. Hub loves it, and it's a great talking point.
The Etsy shop is LedonGifts, based in Manchester.
They also sell clocks, cufflinks, keyrings, and lots of other items made from F1 car parts.
I love this clock:
My other favourite F1-inspired gift on Etsy is from Sam Osborne.
She has created this poster with a fabulous quote from Mario Andretti.
I'd love to get this on a coffee mug Sam!
