Have you been thinking about Christmas? It is right around the corner and who better to buy gifts for than ourselves… ahem… I mean… our cars!

Cars add so much to our lives. They are not only our transportation; they are an extension of ourselves an expression of who we are and who we want to be. They often offer us privacy, a place to play our music loud, and give us a feeling of freedom and independence.

What in the world do we give our car with Christmas is right around the corner?  Here are some smart gifts ideas:

  1. For detailing your car, a car care kit, including tire polish, specialty soap, and leather or vinyl conditioner, adds a nice touch. There are also exterior detailing packages with degreaser, microfiber towels, rubbing compound, a buffer, pads, paint conditioners, and wax.
  2. Ideas for the interior, which help improve your daily driving life, include seat gap fillers to keep things from falling. There is nothing worse than losing your phone, keys, or chapstick when you need them the most! A car garbage can is a handy item, and a trunk organizer offers such peace of mind when driving with a load of groceries or milk when taking a corner. A car vacuum is one handy tool, and there are a variety of styles out there that make clean up a breeze. It is incredible the difference a well-engineered tool makes when cleaning.
  3. If you are looking for a bigger or punchier gift, you can shop for car tracker systems that operate with GPS. That way, you can find your car if your teenager gets frisky and decides to take it for a joyride. Another nice gift is a DVD with Bluetooth stereo system and add speakers to the mix. That will transform your driving experience, taking it to another level. How about an OBD2 Bluetooth auto health scanning tool? Talk about peace of mind. Ever wonder what that whir, or click is? An auto health scanner will be sure to put your mind at ease.
  4. Putting together an emergency kit for your car is also an excellent idea for both safety and peace of mind. Collecting a small air compressor, jumper cables, a flashlight, batteries, screwdrivers, pliers, adding bungee cords, a utility knife, whistle, and rain poncho can save the day when you find yourself in a pinch. Don’t forget some energy bars and water just in case.
