Since Christmas is a little over a week away, some people may still need some last-minute gift ideas. If you’re struggling to find those little gifts that won’t break the budget while still being useful, check out the Business Insider’s list. These Christmas gifts work best for car lovers, but most are practical things anyone with a car can use. We will highlight some of the best for the current season, and highlight others that are good year-round.
In Season Gifts
The winter season brings snow, ice, and dead car batteries. So a great Christmas gift for car lovers this season would be a jump starter. Instead of being stranded or awaiting a jump-start, they would be able to jump their own car. They are practical, especially for winter when the cold weather tends to mess with car batteries. Another great gift for winter drivers would be a pair of leather driving gloves. Leather gloves keep your hands warm while maintaining flexibility and grip that other winter gloves may not. Finally, another great gift for the winter season would be a tire inflator. Tire pressure is a key component to maintain control of your vehicle in snowy conditions, but many people neglect to fill or check their tires appropriately.
All Season Gifts
Although the Christmas gifts for car lovers above are useful all season as well, the gifts in this section are geared towards use all year. Particularly, the car mount and GPS system are very useful things to have in a car at any point in the year. Many people rely on their smart phone’s GPS, but it comes with some issues. If you don’t have a solid connection and a good battery life, then a GPS system may work out better. Additionally, if the police catch you on your phone, even if you’re just checking the route, you could be ticketed. On the other hand, a car mount allows drivers to use their phones as a GPS while still being “hands-free”
