Holiday Gift Guide: Car Accessories

on December 21, 2021

The holiday season has finally arrived this year in 2021, and you might be on the hunt to find the best gift for your loved ones.  Luckily, if you have a car lover in your life, there is a vast array of car accessories that you can purchase as a holiday gift!

Regardless of whether that person is a friend, family member, or loved one.  They will be sure to appreciate any car accessory or gadget. Car accessories are great holiday gifts because they come in all shapes and sizes from commuter gifts, funny gifts, cute car accessories, and more.  They also range in price, so you can find a gift in almost any price range.  

Hilarious Car Accessories

Everybody likes to open up a funny gift during the holiday season, so why not purchase a funny car accessory? The first one we would like to mention is the infamous Hulu dancer dashboard doll. These little bobble figurines are hilarious to see and would be a great gag gift for anyone that drives a retro car.  

Speaking of retro cars, nothing screams retro than giving your friend a pair of those fuzzy dice that they can hang from the rearview mirror.  If you know someone who is driving an antique car from the 50s or 60s, the fuzzy dice will be sure to put a smile on their face!  

If you have a messy friend, you can always purchase a car garbage can, these little guys make for the perfect gift for the messy friend who likes to throw stuff all over his vehicle. 

Finally, if your friend doesn’t mind putting stickers on their car, getting a funny bumper sticker makes for the perfect gift!   

Adorable Car Accessories

There are plenty of cute car accessories that anyone who enjoys staying trendy and fashionable.  You can design the interior of your car just like a house by giving someone a steering wheel cover or seat cover. 

There are hundreds of colors and designs for steering wheel covers and seat covers, plus there is some benefit to them.  The steering wheel covers will help keep your hands warm during the winter months, while the seat belt covers will keep your actual car seats in better condition.  

Commuter Car Gifts

If you are buying a holiday gift for someone that goes on long commutes, there is a vast array of automotive gifts that will bring joy to their lives.  The first type of commuter gift that we would recommend is for emergencies.  

You can give your friends things like a tire inflator which allows them to fill up tire pressure on the go.  Another great option is a jump starter kit in case their battery ever dies on the commute.  Keeping your friends safe on the road is one of the best gifts you could ever give them, which is why we also recommend gifting an emergency preparedness kit for their vehicle.  

If you want to give your commuter friend and more simple commuter gift, anything from a wireless charger, to drinkware, and of course phone mounts are all great options for the commuter in your life.  

Cool Car Accessories for Car Lovers

If you are getting a car gift for someone who is an automotive enthusiast, some of the best gifts you can give them include driving gloves, car magazine subscriptions, tool kits, and more. 

A nice pair of leather driving gloves are great for a car lover that enjoys watching NASCAR or racing, while a magazine subscription is also a great option for all types of vehicle lovers.  If the person you are purchasing loves trucks, there is a magazine for that.  If the person loves NASCAR, guess what?  There is a magazine for that as well!  

Finally, a portable tool kit is a great gift for someone who likes to keep a routine maintenance on their vehicle while on the go, and you can even throw in a tire pressure gauge so they can check their tire pressure whenever they want!  

The Best Automotive Gift

The best automotive gift that you can give a loved one is a DriveSmart vehicle protection plan. In the event that your loved one suffers a vehicle malfunction or breakdown, all they would need to do is call our DriveSmart roadside assistance phone number.  A tow truck would come and pick up their vehicle and bring it to a nearby certified repair facility.  

At that point, the repair facility will make the claim with DriveSmart, and conduct the repair on the vehicle.  Your loved one would just pay a small deductible while DriveSmart would cover the entire repair.  

We hope that our 2021 holiday gift guide has provided you with insight into purchasing the best car gifts for your friends and family.
