Even those with bank accounts larger than Ebenezer Scrooge’s like lower-priced gift options.

And since we’re your friend, no matter how much or little fundage you have, we’ve pieced together a $50-and-under holiday gift guide from Summit Racing Gifts, Clothing & Memorabilia.

There are several hundred gifts to choose from up and down the price spectrum. Here are 10 excellent gift ideas under $50 that caught our attention this holiday season:

Holiday Gifts Under $50

Mobilgas Diner Mugs (Set of 4)


Some 60 years ago, these highly robust Mobilgas mugs were common sights at roadside diners and truck stops. Today, they’re not. And sometimes, a healthy does of Pegasus and nostalgia are just what the doctor ordered.

Scraper and Pry Tool Set


“There is a tool in this kit for every job.” — Alan

We agree, Alan. Money well spent.

Corvette Generations Banner


Which Chevy Corvette generation is your favorite? Right before the C7 launched, we ranked them.

This banner is subtle and excellent. A great gift for Corvette fans.

Caddyshack Freeze Gopher Steel Sign


“I got to get into this dude’s pelt and crawl around for a few days. Who’s the gopher’s ally? His friends? The harmless squirrel and the friendly rabbit.” — Carl Spackler

Mopar Omega Logo Hat

A bold and excellent choice for bold and excellent Mopar fans.

Ford Logo Hats

We’re suckers for Blue Oval hats. Maybe you’re not. Maybe you’re not into Ford. Maybe you like other kinds of hats for Nissan minivans. People should be whoever they are. But that doesn’t mean they won’t look cooler wearing this hat.

Chevrolet Steel Signs

Because we’re fair and balanced, we wanted to add an excellent Chevy item to the proceedings. And every garage or man cave or formal dining room on Earth could probably use one.

Redneck Plunger Christmas Tree

Because EVERY room in the house needs to be decorated.

My Last Words Steel Sign


This guy knows what we’re talking about.

Still Plays With Cars Deuce Sign

They say kids smile and laugh a trillion times a day, and adults rarely do, and that’s why kids’ lives are mostly awesome, and adults are mostly jealous of them when sober, or behaving like them when not.

Since sobriety has merit and is strongly encouraged whenever anything automotive is involved, more time playing seems like the next-best thing.

And here’s a simple, wonderful sign to remind everyone what the human spirit is really about…


Or cars.
