Top Gifts and Stocking Stuffers for Car Lovers

Finding the perfect holiday gift for each person on your list can be a bit of a challenge, especially if one of them seems to have everything already!  If there’s a car enthusiast in your life, or someone who has recently purchased a new car, this list of gifts will provide you with plenty of ideas that will make gift-giving a little easier this year.

1. Portable GPS

This is a perfect fit for those who don’t have a navigation system built right into their car.  Many people use their smartphones for directions, but those can lose signal or battery life quickly.

2. Cellphone mount

If your gift recipient prefers using an app on their smartphone over a GPS device, help them keep their hands on the wheel by getting them a cellphone mount.  Make sure to remind them to never reach for their phone while driving.

3. Car safety kit

A car safety kit is useful to have on hand in case of emergency.  They usually contain jumper cables, a first-aid kit, and other tools.  If your recipient already has something similar, you can create a customized winter emergency kit for weather-specific emergencies.

4. Wireless key finder

A wireless key finder is perfect for those who are always losing their keys.  Using a transmitter that connects to a key fob on your key ring, this device can help you find your keys up to 60 feet away.

5. Dashcam

With the winter season and slippery road conditions ahead, collisions may be more likely, making a dashboard camera a great gift for your car-loving friend. They’re also great for capturing road trip footage!

6. Travel mug

An insulated mug with a tight seal will help keep your car-loving friend’s coffee hot and their ride clean.  Throw in a package of coffee or teabags as a little bonus!

7. Car care / cleaning kit

Speaking of keeping their ride clean, what about a car care or cleaning kit?  You can create a personalized one using some of these ideas.  Or purchase something more specific such as a car leather care kit if your gift recipient has leather seats.

8. Pet travel accessories

If your car lover is also a dog lover, you can get their loyal friend a comfy bed to lie on in the back.  There are a lot of styles and designs out there ranging from simple cushions or fitted blankets for the backseat or even basket seats for small dogs.
