The best Porsche holiday gift guide we could find
We've looked at a lot of them, so you wouldn't have to. The best we've seen is from Porsche Purist. Not only does it have personal recommendations, it's pretty comprehensive.
A club membership is one thoughtful idea:
"If you’re a Porsche owner and you don’t belong to your local owner’s club, you don’t really know what you are missing. Here in the US, the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is king. With more than 100,000 members nationwide, there is bound to be a local and active group in your community. I personally participate in three different regions and enjoy interacting with other Porsche owners immensely. If you’re not yet a member of the PCA or similar type club, you should really think about joining up. If you’re the husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc of a Porsche owner and they are not yet a PCA member, this is a fantastic gift (the cost of membership includes 2 people). Not only will they meet other people with similar obsessions, a membership to the PCA includes a monthly subscription to Panorama Magazine."
It includes maintenance items:
"Over the years, I have come to enjoy and appreciate a few small items that make Porsche ownership a little easier, especially if your Porsche doesn’t happen to be your daily driver." For example: the Porsche Dual Mode Battery Maintainer / Charger. "This is perfect for those that store their Porsche over the winter and don’t want to bother with the hassle of removing and reinstalling the battery." We'd add that it would also be perfect for those of you who store their Porsche in Florida over the summer.
Something for the art lover:
"If you’re looking for Porsche related artwork (and I’m sure you are) then you might want to take a look at these affordable and extremely well executed limited edition prints by Stéphane Dufour. If you live in the US, Stéphane’s work can be purchased through his distributor in California or you can contact him directly if you are interested in the original art that the limited editions are derived from. My favorite piece, without a doubt, is the homage to the 1970 Porsche 917 Martini n°3 and its psychedelic decoration created in wood and aluminum."
It includes books, magazines, toys, watches ... you name it. Even Porsche gifts "for her,' like a special handbag and set of kitchen knives.

One thing the guide didn't mention is that you Porsche owners can give a gift subscription to Christophorus magazine or that you future Porsche owners can hint to your Porsche-owning friends that you'd like one of those gift subscriptions. Order it here.
