You would think that the Corvette passion would make finding a gift for someone a little bit easier, but sometimes, finding that just-right gift can take a little digging. There’s a lot going on in the Corvette world and while we’d all love to have a new ZR1, or, dare we dream, a mid-engine Corvette under our Christmas tree, there are times when that’s not possible.
Looking for something a little more manageable, but just as meaningful can be tough. While online catalogs and to-do lists are full of ideas, we thought we’d throw a couple of suggestions out there that you may not had thought about previously.
Give The Gift Of GOING!
There are many shows and events throughout the year, and places like Carlisle Events hosts multiple events at their facilities located in Carlisle Pennsylvania (as well as other venues). While many Corvette enthusiasts have their annual Corvettes at Carlisle event marked in permanent ink, there are also other events throughout the year that are just as valuable to the Corvette faithful. Spring and Fall swap meets are great places to find those items to finish a project or find a new one.
Carlisle events is currently offering a seasonal pass that will give access to all Carlisle events for 2019. For the cost of just a few days’ admission, each pass is good for one admission daily to all Carlisle events for the 2019 event season. As an added bonus, Carlisle Events is now offering a Christmas holiday special discount of 20% (discount added at checkout). So, if someone you know is usually found scouring the swap meets and show fields of various Carlisle events, then a season pass to all Carlisle’s events may be just the perfect stocking stuffer.
Secret Santa Of Seat-Time
Who doesn’t like driving a Corvette! And now, the NCM Motorsports Park is offering holiday gift cards that can be given for specific experiences, or in any dollar amount! Some areas of interest may be NCM Motorsports Park Karting $20, Touring Laps $50, Hot Laps $125, C7 Corvette Touring Laps $220 or a full-blown Corvette Experience at $599.
You can either choose a specific event to be gifted, or you can stack up funds on a gift card and allow the lucky recipient to choose their style of gift! To redeem the gift card and book an experience, they can call the NCM Motorsports Park at (270) 777-4509 in advance to check availability.

Have someone who’s hard to shop for? You can still give them what they want by allowing them to make the decision for themselves. Gift cards are still a great way to show you care and allows the recipient to get exactly what they were (perhaps, even secretly) wishing for.
