Since the age of 6 when I went to my first motor race meeting I have aways had a passion for cars and Me and My Car, the home of inspired motoring gifts for men, was born out of this passion. All of our fabulous products have a motoring theme and are designed to appeal to the car enthusiasts in your life. We also know that a love of cars tends to extend to all things motorised, so our range seamlessly blends the best in car gifts with boats and planes.
The company started in 2006, the same year as Notonthehighstreet.com, by myself, Fiona Elliott, using my experience gained from previous lives as a buyer for Habitat and a retail consultant. Having created many successful ranges for other companies and recognising that most retailers think that gifts for men are difficult, she set myself the challenge of creating a unique range of gifts for men which would appeal to my male friends who loved and competed in motorsport. Since then the range has grown from strength to strength and we have managed to help thousands of people to give the men in their lives a gift which they are truly delighted to receive. All of our products are high quality and we regularly give them as gifts ourselves.
Me and My Car can still be found at major motor racing events in the UK such as Goodwood Revival and Silverstone Classic.
Me and My Car has a brother, Me and My Sport which offers a unique range of sporting gifts for men. So if the men in your life prefer cricket or cycling to cars we should have a special gift for them. Me and My Sport can also be found on Notonthehighstreet.com.
Me and My Car joined Notonthehighstreet.com in 2008 and have been able to showcase our range to a wider audience. In 2012 we were delighted that our Personalised Tax Disc Cufflinks were shortlisted for Personalised Product of the Year. The judges commented that the cufflinks offer a quality and intricate piece of personalisation, and was an exceptionally strong entry. In 2013 we were even more delighted to win the 'Entrepreneur of the Year' Award. George MacDonald, executive editor of Retail Week was one of the judges and commented, 'Perfect presents for petrol-heads. An astute product range for men – traditionally seen as difficult to buy for. Great focus on product and clever personalisation. Great customer feedback that indicates real understanding of the target shopper and the recipient of the gift.'
