8 Last Minute Gifts For Valentines Day

8 Last Minute Gifts For Valentines Day

One of the hardest things you will have to do this 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 (car enthusiast), then chocolate and flowers are out of the picture. Car enthusiasts are the most difficult groups to shop for, they are really picky about what they put in their cars, so finding the right gift 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 if the make, model, and year of the vehicle and we will 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 help us 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 doesn’t have a rearview camera then this is the perfect gift for him or her! The rearview camera gives you a view that you wouldn’t 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. Check out our selection of rearview cameras here


4. Dash Cam


Dash cams are a great gift for your significant other. Why? Because they provide evidence if your loved one gets 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


This is amazing for a new car owner or beginner driver. A key finder helps drivers find their keys when 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 partners' vehicle? If you know the make, model, and year of the vehicle; you can see all the products we have for your vehicle using our vehicle search tool on our homepage


 Why OEM? Check out our article OEM vs. Aftermarket. 


8. Kickmats



If your loved one has kids or operates in muddy areas, 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. 


We recommend you find the vehicles make, model, and year; then go on our homepage and use our Vehicle Search Tool. There you will find OEM replacement parts for the vehicle. We may not have everything for every vehicle, so if you don’t find something on our website, contact us here so we can help you find that perfect gift.
