At St. Albert Honda, we love the holiday season! It’s the time of year where families come together and share what they’ve been doing throughout the year. However, the holiday season also means searching for gifts for your loved ones. Trying to find the perfect gift for the car lover in your life can feel like driving down a road, only to realize it’s a dead-end. It’s hard to find something that they don’t already have and gifting them a new car is probably out of your price range. Since the holidays are already stressful enough, we’re going to make things a little easier. We’ve taken the time to compile a gift guide for car lovers in your life and hopefully, you find something that you think they’ll like!
It’s rare to see anyone leave the house without a cellphone. Technology has become a key part of our lives and it’s unsurprising that vehicles have adapted as well. Newer models of vehicles have Bluetooth or Apple CarPlay installed, allowing drivers to listen to music or answer phone calls without taking their eyes off the road. However, finding a place to put your phone while you’re driving is a bit of a hassle. With technology in vehicles evolving, phone mounts have become quite popular with drivers. There are many options to choose from and depending on preference, you can get a phone mount that fits on your windshield, air-vent, or dash. This is an excellent gift for someone who is always on the road or is frustrated with the lack of a place to put their favourite electronic device.
Automotive Cuff Links
After Christmas comes New Year’s Eve, which means there’s a possibility you’ll be attending a party to ring in the new year. If you’ve got a loved one with an affinity for fashion or simply wants to look good, consider getting them a pair of cufflinks. Etsy offers a variety of cufflinks that resemble speedometers or fuel gauges. Not only are cufflinks practical gifts, but they’re more interesting than a regular pair of cufflinks that you could get anywhere. Not to mention, they’re small enough to fit in a stocking!
While a lot of people will settle for a quick wash to get rid of the grime on their vehicle, those who take pride in the appearance of their car want to ensure it looks brand new. Washing your vehicle is extremely important. Driving on the roads, especially in Alberta, causes many different contaminants to become stuck on the exterior of your vehicle. This can damage the paint and finish of your vehicle, lowering the value of it should you decide to sell. Luckily, St. Albert Honda has a detailing kit that will help the car lover in your life keep their vehicle clean and shiny. This detailing kit contains all the necessary products to keep a vehicle clean including glass cleaner and Honda Wash n Wax, all for an affordable price. Stop by St. Albert Honda for more gift ideas and pick up a detailing kit for the car lover in your life!
Remember when you were young and getting socks was the worst gift you could receive? As you get older, socks become a prized possession but what’s the point in gifting them if they’re not going to be fun? If you’re looking to get the car aficionado in your life a pair of socks, then Car Throttle is where you can find socks inspired by different types of vehicles! They have an amazing selection of patterns which we have to admit are creative. While we’re partial to the “Clutch and Gas” socks, you might find the design of another pair more appealing.
There’s a good chance there are little ones in your family who aren’t old enough to drive. Children always seem to want to be older than they are and look to the adults in their lives for guidance. This commonly means they want to do adult-like things, such as driving. Unfortunately for them, their safety (and the law!) comes first and there’s absolutely no way they’re getting behind the wheel. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t drive something. Pedal go-karts are a fun way of letting the kids take control and go for a cruise. They pick the speed and the go-karts versatility means it can be driven indoors and outdoors. For the ultimate experience, we recommend you let them take their new ride for a spin outside. Just because they’re too young, doesn’t mean they can’t have some fun!
That wraps up our list of ideas for the car lover in your life. While the items may range in price, it’s really the thought that counts. No matter what you gift them, they’re going to know that you were keeping their interests in mind. Share with us what your favourite gift idea was and if you have any suggestions of your own!
