Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and finding the perfect gift can be a challenge. If you have a car enthusiast in your life, here are some Valentine’s Day gift options that are sure to get your loved one’s heart pounding.
Car detailing gift certificate
If your Valentine loves their car (almost as much as they love you), a gift certificate or gift card for a detailing service is ideal. It’s like a spa day for a car! Car detailing goes far beyond the standard car wash and includes things like washing, paint claying, polishing, waxing, vacuuming, glass cleaning, steam carpet cleaning and more.
Nothing’s more aggravating (or dangerous) than having your phone fall between your seats or go dead – especially when you are on a long drive. Solve those irritating problems by getting a great phone mount that also serves as a charger. There are many options available including ones that attach to your air vents, use a magnet or adhesive, or convert your cupholder into a phone stand.
Dual-facing dash cams have become increasingly popular for motorists over the last few years. The camera continuously records what is going on in front of the car while you are driving, as well as focusing on the interior of the car, or out the back of the car. These devices are very helpful – especially in the event of an accident – as the video footage can prevent other drivers from making false claims, settle arguments in traffic and prevent vehicle theft.
Portable jump starter
Every driver should have a portable jump starter they keep in their vehicle. Anyone who has ever had their battery die at night when no one else is around knows how important this gift is. These easy-to-use chargers let you jump your car without another vehicle, and sometimes provide other functions – such as a flashlight, phone charger or even an air compressor.
Provide your loved one with the ultimate driving experience – the opportunity to put the pedal to the metal at a local racetrack. Many racetracks offer “track days” where you can drive your car on a real racetrack for minimal cost. All you need is a car that’s in good condition, a valid driver’s license and an approved racing helmet. Contact racetracks near you to see if they offer track days.
