The Automotive Christmas Gift Ideas: Car Accessories Edition
There is no shortage of Black Friday Car Deals. However, if you are looking for Christmas gift ideas that are more reasonably priced, you are sure to find something for everyone on your list within one of the 40 gift ideas we found.
Toy Car Sales
Gifts For Him...
Nothing beats Weathertech floor mats. They come custom-made for the vehicle you drive, and are the best in the market.
Like Go-Pros were in the mid-2000s to the sports and amateur outdoor enthusiasts, dash cams are the car accessory gift that most guys probably don’t even know they want. Some start for as low as $55.00!
I saved this gift idea for the men’s list for last, because it can be the most expensive. But! For long road trips, nothing beats the promise of continuous service (especially if you have kids). WeBoost dominates this space, and I would start there if you’re interested in this as a gift.
Gifts For Her...
Heated Massage Chair Cover
Need we say more. This is especially great for someone who doesn’t have built in heated seats, but the massage component alone makes it worth it. Don’t laugh at me, but Bed, Bath & Beyond has quite a few options if you’re interested in this as a gift.
Kick Mat Auto Seat Back Protectors
There are a few options for this. You can get covers that go over the back of your seats to protect them from your kiddos when they stick their feet out and can finally reach the back (I swear, ever since mine learned to extend their legs it was their mission to be able to touch the back of my seat with their feet), and you can also get covers to protect your back seats. Some even come with built in trash receptacles.
Gifts For Teenagers...
Drop Stop Seat Gap Filler
It always makes me so nervous when I see people fiddling in between their seat for something they’ve dropped – that nervousness increases exponentially when I see it’s a teen driver. Help prevent credit cards, change, cell phones and food from falling in between the center console and the seat with this gap filler.
No Blind Spot Rearview Mirror
Your kids will think they look like ‘old fogey’ or ‘a nerd.’ But safety first, right? These things are awesome, and will also help newer drivers navigate the reverse gear.
Glove Box Car Starter
Small enough to fit in a glove box but big enough to start a dead car battery. Great, especially if you don’t want your teen asking other people to let them jump start the car.
Tell them they get senior citizen-type discounts with it, too, and maybe it’ll go over better. In all seriousness, I’ve had friends who started buying this for their kids when they first got their licenses and it’s a guaranteed auto-renewal present for years to come. You’re welcome!
Car Accessories for Under $50.00...
Bluetooth Cassette Adapter
For the car driver in your life who might not have the newest model. You can help them get some of the latest functionalities, like Bluetooth, with this cassette adapter.
5 In 1 Rescue Tools
The Swiss Army Knife for cars – this thing can break glass, cut through seat belts, check the tire pressure and has a built-in flashlight and alarm. Need I say more?
Garage Parking Sensor
We’ve all seen the tennis ball hanging from the garage ceiling, and now there’s a sensor you can use instead to help get you parked.
Car Accessories for the Avid Driver...
Harness Seat Belts - Variety of Styles
These complete the look for a lot of cars. No matter the age of the vehicle, if someone is looking for a sportier look, harness seat belts do the trick.
Golf Supply Trunk Organizer
This holds golf balls, gloves, shoes and other golf accessories from rolling around in the trunk.
Car Accessories for the Do It Yourselfer
Mini Wet/Dry Shop Vac
Instead of hitting up the car wash, get the do it yourselfer in the family their own vacuum to use. This will also save on the need for a ton of pocket change. I know, I know, they take credit cards now too, but let’s be honest, we all hoard quarters solely for the purpose of things like car washes and vacuums.
Armor All Gift Pack
Anyone who likes to do anything to their car themselves will appreciate Armor All products. The ultimate car accessory is a clean one.
You can get these at most of the headliner retail stores, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Walmart. Don’t make your do it yourselfer drive to the car wash. Give them the power of a pressure washer and freedom to clean their vehicle from home.
