Christmas is right around the corner, and for most of us, this years celebrations are probably going to be a bit different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People are spending the holidays stuck at home or away from their loved ones. With that being the case, this shouldn’t stop us from celebrating and showing appreciation for the ones we love through gifts. Even though you may not be able to fly home or have a normal Christmas, you can still give your dad, husband, or partner a present that will make them feel loved this holiday. Here Marietta Wrecker talks about five car-related gifts to consider giving someone this holiday.
- Vehicle Floor Mats – These are a great gift idea for dads who love to go hiking, fishing, and off roading. New floor mats help protect the vehicle’s carpet from mud, dirt, and snow. Most floor mats are designed with channels and ridges that trap dirt and other elements to ensure that your carpet stays clean and dry. More importantly, these mats are molded perfectly to the contours of your vehicle floors to ensure maximum coverage.
- Cold Air Intake – This is a modification that relocates the air filter outside of the engine compartment. The engine draws cooler air from outside the vehicle making it better for combustion. As a result, installing a cold air intake assembly on a vehicle increases its engine horsepower. For such an inexpensive part, doing this mod significantly improves vehicle performance. Lower air temperatures contribute to quicker throttle response while increasing the engine’s lifespan.
- Seat Covers – Give your loved one’s vehicle a fresh new look with brand new seat covers. They’re a stylish way to hide stubborn stains or ripped upholstery—not to mention an inexpensive and quick alternative to reupholstering the car seats. Quality seat covers come custom fit to your make and model. Neoprene is quite popular because it is both durable and water-resistant. Be sure to get them in colors that will complement the existing color palette of the vehicle’s interiors.
- Dashboard Magnetic Phone Mount – With the hands-free law in affect, driving without a phone in your hand has become the law. A dashboard magnetic car mount will hold any cell phone with its powerful magnetic core and metal plates. This is a great gift because its practical and promotes safer driving.
- Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum – A simple shop vacuum is always handy around the garage, and is perfect for making quick work of cleaning the interior of a car. Shop vacuums have a far more advanced motor than regular (dry) vacuums. If you’re vacuuming your car, you can use the shop vacuum to clean up just about any spots you want.
