Top Gifts for the Car Lover in Your Life


Top Gifts for the Car Lover in Your Life 


When someone loves their car, often the most thoughtful gift you can give is… car accessories or a spa day!


Car Detailing Gift Certificate to a nearby auto spa is a truly generous and thoughtful gift. There is nothing more satisfying than to climb into your ride and breathe deeply surrounded by a new car smell with gleaming leather and clean carpeting surrounding you. Your car lover will be so grateful when they are driving their sparkling clean vehicle.


A Portable Jump box is an excellent safety device to make your loved one feel protected and well cared for. You can pick one up for well under $100, and they often have an emergency light and have a USB port on them to charge your cell phone if needed in a pinch.


Car Covers are especially nice to use when preserving your paint from harsh weather and the suns penetrating UV rays. Showing your partner that you care deeply about what they prize is a home run when it comes to making someone feel special.


Driving Gloves to keep your lovers’ hands gripping that wheel is an excellent way to show how much you care. They can make them feel like a professional driver and incredibly special when cruising down the highway.


Cell Phone Mount is a convenient gift for your driver. Keeping their phone right in their line of sight without taking their eyes off the road increases your loved one’s safety.


Car Safety Kit’s are another wonderful gift to give your sweetie. They can fit nicely in their glove box or the trunk. This gift says, ‘You matter, I want you to stay safe. They usually have both first aid as well as automotive emergency items for the just-in-case. You never know what may happen out on the open road. Check out this AAA 64 Piece Premium Traveler Road Kit for $32.86 on Amazon.


Car Care Kits, such as the Meguiars Complete Car Care Kit for $49.70, is an excellent deal offering 12 products in one package to help them make their car shine. Everything from soap, clay bars, to wax, tire shine, and interior detailer spray is included in this package.


Steering Wheel Covers are a nice custom touch. A gift like this can spice up the interior of your sweetie’s car and create an even deeper bond. There are so many fun covers to choose from that express their personality. If your car lover is big into their ride, you can find aftermarket steering wheel covers for their make and model to upgrade and customize their prized ride. This gift can be a real winner if you find the right one for your partner.


Mechanic Tool Kit A good set of tools for your sweetie is a thoughtful gift, especially when they have been using the same old tools for decades. There are some great affordable tool kits such as the Apollo 95 Piece Mechanic Tool Kit for $55.20 that will put a smile on their face.
