8 Last Minute Gifts For Valentines Day
One of the hardest things you will have to do in February is getting him or her something for Valentine's day. Sure you can get chocolate or flowers, but if your partner is like mine (a car enthusiast), then chocolate and flowers are out of the picture. It is a known fact that car enthusiasts are the most difficult group of people to shop for, they are really picky about what they put in their cars, so finding the perfect gift for them can be tough.
What if you don’t know anything about their vehicle? The last thing you want to do is ask your partner what they want or need. If you want to impress and surprise them, then getting something for their vehicle is the perfect gift! All you need to know is their vehicle’s make, model, and year and we can take care of everything else for you!
Instead of treating them to candy and flowers, get them something they will see every day, something meaningful; a gift for their vehicle.
1. Car Phone Holder
If your loved one does not have a car phone mount, this is the perfect cheap and reliable gift for your partner. A car phone mount, hooks on the dashboard, air vent, or window of your car, providing hands-free operation while driving. According to the NHTSA “Distracted driving claimed 3,450 lives in 2016 alone." Get the facts, get involved, and together, we can keep America’s roads safe.
2. Auto Care Kit
Probably one of the best gifts you can get for your partner who is OCD about keeping their car clean is a new auto care kit. Some companies have full auto care kits that have everything you need to clean your vehicle!
3. Rear Camera Kits
If your partner does not have a rearview camera then perhaps, this could be the perfect gift for him or her! The importance of a rearview camera cannot be overemphasized, because the rearview camera gives you a view that you would not normally see with your own eyes. According to a new study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, “rearview cameras reduced backup crashes by 78%”. Most rear crashes don't result in serious injuries, but you never know who or what might be behind you. Using this technology could save you a lot of stress and potentially thousands in repair costs.

4. Dash Cam
Dash cams are a great gift for your significant other. Why? It’s because they are a good way to provide evidence if your loved one gets involved in a crash. "The total number of vehicle crashes reported in 2017 was 350,000, an increase of 25% over the previous year. This amounts to 960 vehicle crashes every day." Dash cams are a great gift for a new driver or an aggressive driver! Luckily for you, we sell dash cams. Get one here!
5. Key Finder
It is weird how you remember leaving your car keys on the table, and when you need them, you suddenly discover you cannot find them. The key finder is an amazing gift for a new car owner or beginner driver. A key finder helps drivers find their keys when they get misplaced or lost.
6. Driving Gloves
Driving gloves make a great gift during the cold winter days. They’ll protect your loved one from a cold steering wheel while providing good grip for safe driving. They also safeguard the steering wheel against oil or dirt that may build up as a result of driving with bare hands.
7. Touch Screen Radio
If your partner does not have a touchscreen radio in their vehicle, we highly suggest you see if there is an OEM compatible replacement part. Actually, we believe this is the best gift you can get for your partner. Want to know if we have a touchscreen radio that is compatible with you or your partner's vehicle?

If your loved one has kids or operates in muddy areas, you should consider getting them kickmats. These mats will efficiently protect the car’s floor from mud and spills, enhancing its durability.
Hopefully, these gift ideas will help you find a nice gift for your partner! However, keep in mind that the perfect gift entirely depends on the receiver’s taste and preferences
