Giving a fun auto-themed gift makes perfect sense if you know a car enthusiast who is simply crazy about his car. A Volkswagen Beetle car owner in particular will appreciate a gift bearing the logo or imagery of his car. By giving an auto-themed gift you can ensure that the recipient will appreciate the thoughtful sentiment since it matches his automobile. There are several types of VW Beetle-themed gifts that you can make or purchase. The good news is that you can give a fun and practical gift.
Custom Photo T-shirt
You can take a photo of the recipient's VW Beetle with a digital camera and have it turned into a T-shirt. Simply take the image to a print shop that specialises in customising clothing and have the image transferred to a quality T-shirt. You can also have the printer add a funny quote or catchphrase that the recipient uses often. To make the gift even more meaningful, select a T-shirt colour in the exact same shade as the recipient's VW Beetle.
Polymer Clay Key Chain
If you have an artistic nature, you can create a mini replica of the recipient's VW Beetle out of polymer clay. You can match the replica exactly to the recipient's car, dents and all. Goofy features, such as a big pair of lips or wiggly eyes, can add the right touch of humour to the key chain. Before the polymer clay sets, add a thin chain complete with a key ring. Every time the recipient starts his car, he will remember you.
Hood Ornament Necklace
Your local junkyard is full of VW Beetles that have long since been turned into scrap metal. Paying a visit to your local scrapbook can yield a VW Beetle bonnet ornament that is in fair condition. You can turn the bonnet ornament into a fun necklace by attaching a hanger to the back of it and suspending it from a metal ball chain fitted with a clasp. Alternatively, you can spray paint it a bright colour and hang it from a matching nylon lanyard. To add a bit of shine, you can also glue rhinestones or plastic gemstones to the front of the bonnet ornament.
If you are on a budget, you can create a funny greeting card on your home computer. An Internet search engine can provide you with countless photographs of VW Beetles that you can print from your computer. You can cut out the printed picture and glue it to a piece of folded card stock to create a greeting card. With the addition of a humorous sentiment on the interior of the card and a matching envelope, you have a simple gift that is ready for giving.
