If you missed Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, don’t worry. It’s not too late to find a great price on the perfect Christmas gift for the car enthusiast on your Christmas list. We at Paul Obaugh Ford have a whole host of ideas to help you make the car-lover in your life happier than a little kid on Christmas morning…
Car accessories are often a simple but popular gift idea. Bumper stickers from a college student’s school are a great gift – the perfect representation of surviving the first semester of higher education. Since this winter already promises to be colder than last year, a heated ice scraper is also a practical gift anyone would appreciate on a frozen morning. Steering wheel covers with fun colors and quirky patterns are a great way to dress up a car with a personality of its own.
Many of us spend lots of time on-the-go. Portable gadgets are memorable gifts that add convenience to longer journeys. A portable DVD player is a welcome gift for kids and parents alike, a car charger for the cell phone is an absolute necessity, and a GPS is hard to live without these days. And while tablets, smartphones, and all varying degrees of portable media are fun to toy around with, don’t forget the importance of maintaining full concentration on the road.
For the car guru who likes to tinker under the hood and take care of his or her own maintenance, restocking supplies like oil, air and oil filters, and even a spare tire is a good way to support the hobby. If you’re running low on funds, a handmade coupon for a free car wash or two could be a thoughtful gift; just be prepared to roll up your sleeves when the recipient cashes in on the coupon.
Hopefully these gift ideas have sparked your imagination and will help you shop for the car guru on your Christmas list. Leave us a comment and let us know what you’ll be giving that special someone. We promise to keep it a secret!
