The holiday season is officially here! People across Corpus Christi, TX, and the country are flooding into stores, shopping for gifts for all the special people on their lists. But what about your vehicle?
Whether you need a gift idea for a car lover on your list or want to take advantage of holiday prices, don’t leave your car out of the festivities! Explore these auto gift ideas for inspiration:
1 – USB charger
These handy devices have a wide range of uses (and only cost a few dollars!). Plug in your phone, camera, tablet, mp3 player, or any USB connected device for an on-the-go charge.
2 – Emergency Kit
If your vehicle isn’t already equipped with one, now is the perfect time to purchase or build an auto emergency kit. Put one together for your own vehicle or for a loved one to keep them safe this winter and year-round.
For the directionally challenged and map lovers on your list, consider a cell phone or GPS mount. With one of these, keep your GPS or smartphone maps in view to minimize unnecessary distractions.
This accessory attaches to your vehicles hitch mount for a variety of uses. Like a small step, you can stand on this attachment to more easily access roof storage. Certain types, like the Weather Tech Bump Step, even act as bumper protection to avoid minor accidents or parallel parking mishaps.
5 – Drop Stop
This nifty gadget helps you avoid losing spare change, chapstick, keys, and french fries down the space between the car seat and the center console.
6 – Vinyl car mat
A worthwhile upgrade for the cloth counterpart, vinyl car mats are easier to clean, last longer, and help protect your vehicle’s interior from damage from shoes, dirt and mud.
These devices are designed to increase the range of your view from your rearview mirrors to more easily spot vehicles in your blind spot. Add these mirrors to your vehicle for an extra safety boost.
8 – Sun shade
Protect your investment from harmful UV rays with a sun shade! It will also help keep your vehicle cool on hot days while keeping your dashboard and interior safe from premature wear. Find one with personality to match the recipient, and it makes a great gift.
