Terrific Christmas Gifts to Give Your Car

It is the time of year to spoil yourself and your car. What better reason and season to improve your driving life than an upcoming holiday? Car gifts are fun to shop for and very rewarding to use. Going big, such as shopping for a Bluetooth stereo, a new sound system, speakers, or GPS car trackers are easy yet expensive items for your car. There are a lot of options and combinations to choose from. 

An alternative choice is an OBD2 system. These are systems that use Bluetooth to connect to and scan your vehicle's diagnostic system. These can help monitor your car and detect when a system begins to go awry and so offer peace of mind as your car ages.

There are many little gifts and upgrades you can give your car that is relatively easy on the pocketbook and also improve your driving life. Items like a seat gap filler, a vehicle-specific garbage can or trunk organizer that help streamline and prevent frustrations. Gifts like these are beneficial and make you feel good while driving. Add a smartphone air vent mount to your dash, improves driving safety, look cool, and are ergonomic as well.

Buying your car a handy detailing kit offers a fun and easy way to improve the look of your vehicle. Prepackaged kits with window wash, tire polish, and special soap and interior vinyl conditioner make it easy. However, you can also build your own package, which offers customized products you love to use. Add wax or a car vacuum. You can go big and add an orbital buffer, pads, degreaser, microfiber towels, polishing compounds, and a paint conditioner. Although this is manual labor, it is highly rewarding.

For safety, buy your car a portable jumper, a keychain car escape tool, jumper cables, a flashlight, bungee cords, a utility knife, screwdrivers, a mini air compressor, or a first aid kit and add a whistle, rain poncho, and some high protein snacks and water.
