9 car-related gift ideas to drive your holiday shopping

Forget the bling, bling this holiday season and opt for some vroom! vroom! We can’t think of a better way to say “Happy Holidays” than a gift that makes anyone’s daily commute or holiday travels more pleasant, practical or fun.

9 gift ideas to give or put on your wish list this holiday season.

USB car charger
  1. Car seat warmers. If your car doesn’t come equipped already, help you or your friend’s tush stay toasty all winter long. There are do-it-yourself kits for the more adventurous on your list, or if you want to leave that to the pros, just ask us. We will refer you to a company that can do it for you.
  2. Let the force be with your car. The Force Awakens premieres on Dec. 17 and we’re calling all Jedi knights. Find everything from Star Wars themed automotive floor mats to R2-D2 USB battery chargers. And what Star Wars fan wouldn’t love a Darth Vader seat cover. Go to think geek and search Star Wars auto accessories.
  3. High-tech stocking stuffer. Everyone will be talking about the Bungajungle Neutron 6. The what? The small magnet that secures your smart devices to the dash. Watch the video to learn more.
  4. grill ornament
  5. Grill ornaments. Make a statement with a pewter grill ornament. Put Buddha or an American eagle in the driver’s seat when you hit the road. See all the designs by visiting The Grommet.
  6. New tires. December is the best month to buy new tires for your or someone else’s car. Why? You can take advantage of the  Hankook tire rebate.
  7. Emergency kit. This is the practical gift. Not everyone thinks to carry a roadside emergency kit in their car. Show how much you care for your gift recipient with a gift that will help keep him or her protected in an emergency. AAA makes a 42-piece kit that is under $30!
  8. Heated ice scraper. There’s no better luxury than a heated ice scraper when it’s below 32 degrees! There’s a heated scraper for every budget — from $30.00 for a Totes brand scraper from Kohl’s to a $49.99 version from Sharper Image. Let us know which one stands up to the test of winter for you!
  9. Trunk organizer. Although not the most exciting gift on our list, it’s get high marks for practicality. Keep that stuff that you throw in the back of your car and your groceries from falling over and rolling all around the trunk. There are oodles of styles to choose from, including this folding trunk organizer from The Container Store and this organizer that hangs from the headrest to organize the backseat or rear cargo area.
  10. Car charmer. Okay, we couldn’t resist a little bling. Find a rearview mirror car charmer and many more personalized car accessories at etsy.com.
