Perfect gifts for the shopping enthusiast in your life
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - They might not be the flashiest gifts, but chances are they will be used and appreciated.
We’re talking about car-related gifts for drivers, and who better to recommend some winners that go the extra mile than car experts at Consumer Reports. First up is a headlight restoration kit. The product is easy to apply and can restore nighttime visibility, keeping everyone in your car safe.
If your loved one lives in a snowy area, consider tickets or coupons to a local car wash. Keeping salt off of your paint will help protect it and washing the underside will keep everything underneath clean and free of corrosion. Another idea could be to gift a battery maintainer. It makes sure your battery doesn’t go dead if you don’t drive much these days. That way, when you do need your car, it’ll start right up.
Consider gifting a set of good floor mats? WeatherTech floor mats are molded to your specific vehicle. They keep the mud and dirt out, and make your car easier to clean. An emergency roadside assistance kit makes a great gift for yourself or others. You never know where you’re going to be when you might need it, so it’s good to keep it in your car in case something goes wrong on a long or short distance trip.
A tire pressure gauge is something else that’s good to have on hand. A small digital one bought at a hardware store will be easy to use. It allows you to check your tire pressure monthly like you’re supposed to. For the person who’s tough to shop for, a music service subscription for when they’re working on their car or driving is another great accompaniment. If you want to tell your favorite driver that you really care and want to keep them from getting stranded on the side of the road, basic roadside assistance plans start around $60 for the first year. They usually include four to five service requests per year.
