Don't forget to spoil the car lover in your life this Christmas.

Dashboard Camera

Are you hoping to buy a present for a new driver?

A dashboard camera could be the perfect gift this Christmas.

Prices generally range from around £40 to £300, so you can easily find the best one for your budget.

By buying your loved one a dash cam, you can keep them safe from any legal complications they could face on the road.

A high-quality dash cam can also capture the beautiful and unexpected moments that might unfold during the road trips you take together - so this is much more than just a practical gift.


Car Vacuum Cleaner

Car vacuum cleaners offer a convenient, compact and portable Christmas gift option.

You can find an effective car vacuum cleaner for as little as £30, or you could splash out on one from closer to £300.

This gift could be perfect if you know someone who struggles to keep their car clean or otherwise invests hours of their time into keeping it spotless.


Emergency Car Kit

Think of an emergency car kit as being a little like a hamper basket that’s filled with everything a driver could possibly need whilst out on the road.

This is an amazing Christmas gift idea for new drivers who may not have gotten round to assembling one yet.

You can include a first-aid kit, a high-vis jacket, a torch, a shovel, and an ice scraper as part of the kit.

Consider incorporating cute blankets, a spare phone charger, and their favourite snacks and non-alcoholic drinks into the kit so that they can be easily stored in the car all-year round.

You may want to included more personalised touches, like an air freshener in their favourite scent.

You could even make them a playlist of songs you know they love to drive to, so that you can sing along together next time you head out on a road trip together.


Personalised Mug

If you always meet up for coffee, why not have their name printed on a car-related mug?

You can pick a design or image to include that features their favourite car or place to drive

You can find personalised mugs on sites like Etsy, or you could choose to hand paint one at a pottery place together around Christmas instead.
