Many people have an affinity for their cars. Whether they are rejoicing with a new car loan and just bought their first car or have had the same vehicle they polish with care every Sunday we have put together a fantastic resource for great gadget gift ideas. From birthdays to holidays and just because I love you days, or even for the days you want to give a little something to yourself, here is a list of ideal gifts for car lovers.
- iPhone Real Racing: Not recommended to play while driving, a car lover will enjoy this free app. If they don’t already know about it they can load it onto their phone and have hours of fun with realistic cars and can be played at different levels. Lots of fun for zero investment.
- Windscreen Wipers: Okay, this is not a very glamorous gift but listen to why you should buy it. If you put a small amount of money into this gift you will actually be giving them a safety feature. Look for Michelin Stealth Wiper Blades as these provide a crystal clear view even in extreme downpours.
- Car Vacuum: A car vacuum allows them to vacuum in case of any mishaps. The true car nut won’t stand for crumbs of any kind and this will allow them to remove any evidence that you ever ate crisps in their car. Look for the Dyson Animal Vacuum if you’re looking for the best.
- Window Vac: Don’t laugh. This is the perfect toy for the person who has everything. This little darling can make short work of the dirtiest windows and also does wonders on the body of a wet car as well. The squeaky clean option is the Karcher Window Vac.
- Water Filter: The guy who is always standing out front of his house washing his car will love this for a few reasons. First if you get the Race Glaze Refillable 0ppm Water Filter, it is refillable so they can use it when they need it. Second it provides a spotless finish as it filters the minerals out of the water. Just to be clear, that means no need to towel dry. The car will dry on its own without spots.
- GPS with Traffic Reports: This is ideal for the person who is always on the road either for work, on the way to work or for pleasure. The Garmin nüvi 2408LT-D is very affordable as a gift or for your own purposes and provides traffic updates in real time as well as all the standard GPS stuff you require.
- Bike Carrier: This is perfect for the car and cycling enthusiast. An expensive choice that offers convenience and ease of use is the Atera Strada DL, but there are many models available that are easy to use, easy to install and easy on the pocket book.
Whether you drive a Citroen or a Fiat, a Jaguar or a 2017 Ford Explorer these are great ideas for the driver who has everything. Visit our website edmunds.com for a few other, slightly larger gifts that you might want to consider giving to the consummate car lover! (Clue: they are actual cars!)
