Christmas Gifts Every Car Owner Will Love
If you could buy a car for every person on your “nice” list…I’m sure you would! Though a new car might not be under the tree this holiday season, there are still dozens of gifts you can get for the car owners in your life.
Dash cams are a relatively new car accessory. They're small cameras that record their surroundings and are mounted on your vehicle's windshield or dashboard. Dash cams can be useful if you ever get into an accident, but they also have some other cool uses:
- Recording your drive. Having footage of everything that happened is important evidence if you have an accident or encounter some type of misconduct.
- Recording driving techniques in case you need them later (e.g., backing up into someone's mailbox because it was hard to see).
- Monitoring other drivers on the road—a dash cam could show if someone swerved into your lane without signaling or ran a red light when they shouldn't have been going so fast!
Additionally, if your dash cam can be uploaded to a cloud, your stolen vehicle can be easily tracked.
Proximity Key Finder
A proximity key finder device uses Bluetooth technology to locate lost items in a radius of up to 50 feet. When activated, it emits a loud beep for five seconds. It then turns off automatically so as not to drain the battery. It can be used with the corresponding smartphone app or included key ring lanyard, depending on the type! If you're the type of person who can't remember where they left their car keys (and aren’t we all every once in a while?), this is an excellent gift.
Do you like to wake up thirty minutes early so you can scrape your windshield wiper?
Windshield covers are a perfect gift for any car owner in Colorado because they’ll literally pay you back in sleep! A windshield cover goes over your windshield to prevent ice build-up and snow.
Another benefit of using a windshield cover is that it will protect your car from UV damage in the summertime when parked outside. In addition to keeping its appearance looking great, this feature can also help extend your vehicle's life over time!
While this might not be the most glamorous of gifts, it’s definitely among the most helpful!
Snow tires are designed with one thing in mind: getting you from point A to point B safely, regardless of the conditions outside your window.
Snow tires have a different tread than regular all-season tires. While they're not made specifically to be used in the winter months, they can be used on both summer and winter roads with no problem at all. Snow tires also have deeper treads and more grip, making them great for driving in snow.
New Floor Mats
Floor mats are inexpensive to keep your car's carpets clean–and make for a great gift. Most of us still have the first set we got, which rarely stands up to Colorado snow and ice melt.
Whether you prefer the classic look or something more modern, floor mats come in various colors and styles to fit any taste or budget.
Some offer unique designs that reflect a sense of personal style. In contrast, others offer practical benefits like non-skid backs for added safety or rubberized bottoms for better grip on slippery surfaces like snow or ice-covered roads during winter months (or even rainy days).
Handheld Car Vacuum
A car vacuum is a little luxury, even if it doesn’t seem that exciting! Handheld ones that are battery or charge-operated make for easy cleaning in all vehicles! This gift is especially great for those who have kids.
