Christmas is just around the corner and buying gifts for anyone can be hard. Car enthusiasts are especially particular about their cars and what goes into them. The holidays are a great time to splurge, but if expensive add-ons, wheel upgrades and supercharger kits are not in your budget, you’re in luck. Whether you’re a car enthusiast or you have one in your family, we’ve gathered the best gifts to buy this Christmas.

Key Finder

Making it easier to find your keys will put a smile on anyone’s face, especially ones that misplace theirs often. A great gift this season for the forgetful is a key finder. We suggest finding one that attaches to a key ring and syncs to a smartphone via Bluetooth, which will help you more easily track your keys.

Personalized keychain

A household full of drivers can benefit from customized key chains. Adding a personal touch to each key will make it easier to quickly grab your keys when you’re rushing out the door.

Car Cleaning/Care Kit

If you know someone who is obsessed with keeping their car clean, a complete car cleaning kit will be the gift for them. Taking a car in for a regular cleaning is great, but being able to maintain it in between those visits will keep it looking new all year round, and for cheaper.

Driving Loafers

Long rides can be made comfortable with the proper footwear. Driving loafers are the perfect companion for cruising. When shopping for driving loafers, look for waterproof options to keep feet dry in those rainy or snowy days.


Car mats get dirty, fast. Replacing car mats with ones that can soak up more liquid can ensure a longer life and a cleaner car. This can be the perfect gift for the drivers in your family who haven’t had the time to take their car in for a cleaning.

Phone Mount Holder

Smartphones are useful when it comes to calling and texting, and can help you navigate roads with GPS capabilities. Being able to access your phone hands-free while driving is imperative in keeping you safe while you stay connected. A car mount holder can help you accomplish just that.

Steering Wheel Cover

Steering wheel covers are great for keeping hands warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They also provide extra grip for better control.

Leather Driving Gloves

If the car already has a wheel cover or came with leather steering wheels, then leather-driving gloves are a great alternative. They’ll keep your hands warm in the winter and provide a better grip. They’re also a great option for keeping your wheel free of dirt and oil that builds up from driving barehanded.

Emergency Car Kit

You never know when you’ll find yourself in a situation when you or your loved one is stuck in a car. An emergency car kit can help prepare for the worst-case scenario, from blizzards to camping trips. These emergency kits should include non-perishable food (such as energy bars), water, a blanket, a first aid kit, a seatbelt cutter, and extra clothing.

Dash Cam

If you know someone who loves cool car gadgets, a dashcam will be their favorite gift this season. Accidents happen, and being able to capture what happened and provide evidence can help insurance claims go in your favor. A cam dash will automatically save your movements and record the footage during incidents.

Car Jump Starter

Few things are scarier than finding yourself stranded with a dead battery. Save yourself a call to roadside assistance with a glove box car jump starter. Being able to jump-start your own car will save you time and money.

Car Charger

Most cars can only accommodate charging one device at a time. A car charger that can accommodate multiple devices will help alleviate the pain of sharing. The days of asking “what percent is your phone at?” are over.

Car enthusiasts can be hard to shop for, but you can find amazing gifts at great prices to make their lives easier. No matter what your budget is, you can find cool, useful gifts that will please any vehicle owner.
