Car-Related Gift Ideas
Did you score on Black Friday? Or order everything on Amazon? It not, you probably have a few car lovers left on your holiday-gift-giving list. To help, we’ve assembled some great picks for anyone left on your list who loves cars. It’s our Gift-Giving Guide for 2017:
Cell Phone Holders Make Great Gifts
In Southern California, where Genesis Automotive is located, it’s illegal to use a cellphone while driving. But that doesn’t eliminate our desire to see who is calling. But it’s unsafe to check while we’re behind the wheel or peek at driving directions on GPS. An elegant solution to this dilemma is a universal air-vent or windshield mounted cell phone holder. This is a great gift for 2017. It keeps your loved one’s mobile phone within arm’s reach while simultaneously helping them obey the law.
Gift a Bluetooth Cassette Adapter
While we love classic cars, an undesirable side effect of their age is that they fail to incorporate innovative digital technology. Help your loved ones overcome this obstacles by picking up an inexpensive Bluetooth Cassette Adapter. This will enable them to play music from their portable Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a smartphone. The gift will also enable them to take and place calls through their car speakers!
Trunk Storage Solutions as a Gift
Now that Californians must bring our own bags to grocery stores, most trunks have morphed into disorganized messes. Offer an easy storage solution to your loved ones. Available in several different materials and styles, these quick fixes can put a stop to the madness.
Include an Emergency Kit in your Gift Bag
We’ve all read about the importance of stowing emergency supplies in our trunks in case a disaster breaks out while we are in our cars. But how many have taken the time to put together necessities for just such an event? You can either buy a pre-made kit or assemble your own. Be sure to include a first aid kit, tennis shoes, a solar blanket, a flashlight with extra batteries, water, unperishable high-protein food. Click here for more suggestions, from FEMA.
Free-Standing Battery Charger
You can choose a large model to store in the garage or a portable model. Both are great gift ideas because they reinforce independence. Safety is also improved, since your recipient won’t have to ask strangers for a jump-start.
Car Mats Make Great Gifts
A great idea even if your loved one lives in a mild climate, such as the one we enjoy in Covina, spare car mats will help keep the car clean, even if the driver and passenger have wet or muddy shoes. Anyone who struggles to keep his or her vehicle carpet clean will appreciate the thought behind a gift like this.
