I recently asked Facebook friends for vehicle-related gift ideas and got quite a few responses. So if you need a few last-minute ideas, here you go.

Lots of people suggested gifts related to sound systems. From the head unit in the dash to speakers, amps and subs, the list goes on and on. But remember, eventually you are probably going to be riding in their vehicle with them, so buy accordingly.

A subscription for satellite radio was also mentioned and that would be a great idea for someone who is in their vehicle for long commutes.

Multiple people said they would love to receive heated seat cushions and they are a great gift to get around this time of year.

Lots of other accessories were also mentioned, such as air fresheners, floor mats, organizers and snow brushes. These are usually very affordable and you can find many different accessories at auto parts stores and most big retail stores.

A do-it-yourself person posted that a gift such as a floor jack and jack stands would be a great idea. It not only makes their jobs easier, but the jack stands keep them safe as well.

Tires and wheels were mentioned, which is no surprise as these are always a popular gift. You might want to get a gift card from a tire shop for this gift though as four tires are going to be difficult to fit under the tree.

Navigation systems are a great accessory to have in your vehicle and they have really come down in price. Getting this gift for someone close to you makes their life easier and gives you peace of mind, knowing that they won’t get lost out on the road.

Gas cards were one of the most popular ideas, so this would be a great gift for most people. Plus you can get them in just about any dollar amount so they can be affordable.

Car washes and vehicle details were also mentioned by quite a few people. These are easy gifts to buy as many car washes sell different levels of prepaid wash packages.

Remote starters were the most popular gift idea mentioned, although it will have to be installed after the holidays. Deal with a reputable business that sells and installs the remote starters to make sure that it is done correctly and get on their schedule as soon as possible to avoid the post-Christmas rush.
