Car lover. Car nut. Car geek. There are a million different terms for the car lover in your life, all of which can leave you at a loss for what to get for the gift recipient who loves their car more than themselves. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of gifts for the car lover in your life, put together by car lovers for car lovers.
Help your car lover’s beloved stay pristine with new floor mats. Be selective about your purchase; not just any floor mates are good enough for your car lover. Instead, look for mats that are specially measured and manufactured for their “baby.”
No more cold concrete floors
When the temperatures drop, even the biggest car lover appreciates a few months of NOT having to lay on those freezing concrete floors. Give your car lover a gift certificate for oil changes and other work this winter—done by a mechanic they trust—so they don’t have to freeze working on their car.
Give your car lover the gift that keeps giving: a quality car detailing. If you want to get rid of the scuff that you left on their car (and stop hearing about it), give them a gift certificate to give their baby the deep cleaning they feel it deserves.
If your car lover has to drive their “baby” in the snow, a good set of snow tires ensures that your car lover and their vehicle arrive in one piece during one of our Wisconsin snow storms. Contact your local tire shop for new tires; all you have to do is figure out how to gift wrap them.
If your car lover is like most, he or she loves to give their “baby” a regular wash and wax. Find out their favorite car wash kit and wax on the sly or ask around for the best car wash and wax kit around. Only the best wash and wax is going to be good enough for their love.
Not just any headlights are going to do for the car lover in your life. If your car lover hasn’t upgraded their car lighting, shop for LED lamps that give better visibility and use less energy. Be prepared when you start shopping; you’ll be amazed by the selection of bulbs on the market.
Heaven forbid your car lover’s set of wheels breaks down, but if they do give them the gift of a helping hand so they can get back on the road.
If your car lover can’t wait to get behind the wheel every morning, make it a warm steering wheel. Purchase an aftermarket remote start system that can get their car going even on the coldest Wisconsin mornings.
Even the most carefully maintained vehicle can be brought down by a failing or subpar car battery. To help your car lover out of the garage, buy a quality battery charger.
No one appreciates a good set of tools like a car lover. From a set of wrenches to a good flashlight, your self-proclaimed car nut appreciates a good tool as much as you enjoy a ride in their much-loved ride.
