xmas snow

There is a chill in the air, and snow in the forecast in the Asheville area. Christmas is drawing near, and it is time to grab those final presents for the car-lovers in your life. In our previous post, we discussed the first five of 10 Christmas gift ideas for your friends and family members who are car-enthusiasts, including:


  1. Cell Phone Dashboard or Air Vent Mount
  2. Gift Certificate for Vehicle Maintenance
  3. Flashlight, Toolkit, Jumper Cables
  4. Car Seat Cover/Warmer/Massager
  5. A Great Road Trip

Continuing our list, here are five more great Christmas gift ideas for the car-lovers in your life:

6) Vehicle Tune Up and Repairs

Even the most well-maintained vehicles require tune ups and repairs from time to time. For the car-lover in your life, consider giving them the gift of more intense vehicle maintenance. Make sure you send the gift-recipient to a trusted auto-maintenance shop like RetroLube in Asheville, NC.

7) Audio System

Some of the car-enthusiasts in your life may collect classic, older vehicles. These beauty, powerful machines may have some great bells and whistles, but they often lack key audio system components. Consider gifting the car lover in your life a combination of these audio improvements:

  • New Radio
  • Better Speakers
  • Bluetooth Capable Sound System

8) Winter Driving Kit

In western North Carolina, we can receive snow and cold temperatures far more dangerous than our eastern neighbors. It is important to be prepared for icy emergencies. Consider giving the gift of safety with key winter items including:

  • Warm Blankets
  • Antifreeze
  • Tire Chains
  • Kitty Litter
  • Collapsible Shovel
  • Non-perishable Food
  • Flashlight and Batteries

9) Dash Cam

How often have the drivers you know started to tell a story about something they saw through their windshields, only to conclude, “You should have seen it.” For the car-lovers in your friends and family circles, consider the gift of a dashboard camera. These are useful for recording interesting events, and potential legal matters.

10) Car Seat Covers for Pets

Does the car-enthusiast in your life enjoy driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway with their pets? Consider seat covers to help protect leather and cloth upholstery.
