It's the most wonderful time of the year, the time when you get to blow your hard-earned money on crap your loved ones will forget about within weeks. But what to buy the gearhead in your life that you don't like?

Our friends over at Gawker had a great take on this idea recently — a list of gifts for someone you hate. It's awfully hard to top a $5 gift card to Chili's, "because it forces the recipient to at least think about going to Chili's."

I think we need an automotive take on that idea. What's the worst car-related holiday gift?

I submit the leather steering wheel cover, available at Pep Boys for just $22.99. It does not look good, ever, nor does it look luxurious. See that Alfa Romeo 8C? It will never have one of these. But if you need a gift for someone, you could do worse.


Show me worse, everyone.
