Then plug in those lights and let your car shine!
On a more serious note, decorating your vehicle for the holiday season can be fun, but there are still some precautions you should take. Wrapping Christmas lights around your vehicle may look beautiful, but it’s quite dangerous and not at all legal. Having lights that weren’t originally installed into your vehicle can pose a serious problem when on the roads. Other drivers may become confused or distracted by the excess light radiating from your car, which can result in accidents. Instead of bright Christmas lights, we’ve thought of six other decorations you can use for your vehicle to celebrate the holidays!
Reindeer Car Kit
The reindeer car kit is one of the most popular vehicle decorations for the holidays. Within most reindeer car kits, you’ll find antlers and a wonderful red nose. Each antler fits right onto the windows of your vehicle, while you can place the reindeer’s nose onto the front grille of your car. These kits are adorable and will have people smiling whenever they see your car drive by.
The creator behind this comical magnet was definitely catering to an older audience, but it’s made us giggle nonetheless. These little legs are eye-catching and whimsical, whether you decide to place them over your wheels or pretend to have an elf locked away in the trunk. Despite being made for your vehicle, the magnets can be stuck to any metal surface like a locker or even the fridge. If the elf legs aren’t to your liking, they come as Santa legs as well!
Festive Aerial Topper
While some people use aerial toppers to locate their vehicle after coming out of the grocery store, you can use it to get into the holiday spirit. There are many designs you can choose from, including a simple Christmas tree or a classy snowman with a carrot nose. Aerial toppers are perfect for someone who wants to keep their celebration of the holidays simple. They’re far from being distracting and, as mentioned, are quite helpful when trying to find your car! All you need to do is stick one on the antenna of your car. Unfortunately, for those who drive vehicles without antennas, this won’t be a viable option for you.
There are several ways of decorating the outside of your vehicle, but sometimes it’s better to decorate the inside. Bobbleheads may not be as common as they once were and most of the time, you’ll find them in Hollywood films, heads bouncing along as semi-trucks drive down the highway. However, they’re also fantastic (and rather cute!) holiday decorations. Passengers in your vehicle will certainly get a kick out of a small bobbling Santa Claus.
You might argue that stockings should be hung by the chimney with care, but we think they make marvellous additions to your vehicle. The tradition of the Christmas stocking allegedly began in response to the life of Saint Nicholas, who gifted a family with gold. One version of the story says the gold accidentally fell into the stocking, while another tells the tale of Saint Nicholas throwing the bags of gold directly into the stockings. Either way, hanging stocks is a cute and beloved tradition. Make your vehicle feel festive to those entering by hanging stockings in your car. Ask those who are frequent passengers in your vehicle to bring a stocking of their own and perhaps, come Christmas morning, they’ll have their own little surprises waiting for them.
Having fun with the holidays is great, but it’s still important that you pay attention while on the roads. Decorate your vehicle sparingly, so that you don’t distract yourself or others as you pass by them. You should also take the time to winterize your vehicle as you make your vehicle festive to keep you and your family safe this holiday season!
