It's Beginning to Look Car-Lot-Like Christmas

It's gift-giving time, and of course I recommend auto related gifts. Here are a few ideas for this year!

A popular gift for do it yourselfers is a code reader that hooks to the car’s computer. But be aware that they can be very basic like this one for $60, all of the way up to very sophisticated ones for hundreds of dollars. Make sure you know what kind your gift getter really wants before you buy one.

Old style tin signs are a great gift idea to spruce up a garage. There are lots of signs out there to choose from, and many of them can even be personalized.

How about a tablet holder? It hangs on the back of a seat. That way a back seat passenger can view their iPAD or tablet either up and down, or side to side. It simply attaches to the headrest, and can be adjusted in our out to fit just about any tablet out there.

There are plenty of bumper stickers out there for everyone’s favorite teams, but chrome-plated emblems take team spirit to whole new level. And with a peel and stick back, they are easy to install.

Here is one of my favorite gift ideas – the Hot Wheels Video Racer. It has a built in camera and actually records video as it goes down the track. You can also attach it to just about anything else to record even more action. If my family is watching this right now, get me this for Christmas!

Car beds for kids are available in many styles and price ranges. What a fun gift to give, and your child will enjoy it every night of the year.

Speaking of race cars, do you know someone that has a need for speed? The Richard Petty Driving Experience is at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City. For under a hundred bucks, your gift-getter can ride along at 160 miles-per-hour for several laps around the track. Check their website for information about gift certificates!

If you have someone who likes to keep their vehicle shining like new, a gift like an orbital polisher would be a good choice. Having something like this will make it a lot less tough to buff.

Don't forget about Fido this Christmas! Check out the booster seat that allows your smaller dog to see out the windows. It also has a small leash to hold the pup in place. They’ll feel like they are riding in style, in their private sky box seat!

Kids will love Tonka Flip Race Cars. They are remote control, fast, and they can flip over and keep on going! And as you can tell, both the boys and the girls will love’em.
