Buying Valentine gifts can sometimes be very tricky as you are often conscious of buying gifts that would suit the style and personality of the receiver. The general opinion is that since Valentine has to do with the celebration of love, the type and quality of gifts should reflect how you feel about the receiver. It should be romantic as well as relevant. How then do you beat the confusion of buying something special enough for a loved one who has a special preference for car related items?
As automobile specialists, we have compiled a list of items car lovers would love and find really exciting. The beautiful thing about this is that these items can be easily found in the market and should impress every car lover.
First on the list is an inflator. If you have ever been in a situation where your car tyre went flat and there was no mechanic around to help you fix it, then you will appreciate the essence of an inflator. With an inflator, you can easily get your tyre back to shape in good time, especially in emergency situations. Ensure you make the gift look all valentine-ready by presenting it in an attractive package, alongside some other little items like chocolates, biscuits etc.
Car Seat Cushion
If you are not sure the inflator would be a good idea, how about an awesome seat cushion. Seat cushions help make drive time more pleasurable. Driving for long hours can sometimes put a lot of strain on our fragile backs and waistline, especially when you do not have comfortable seat, but with a softly padded car cushion, you can say goodbye to hurtful drive times. This item could be more interesting when you have one, specially crafted to suit and massage the back. Why won’t any car lover love this item?
Customized Car Items
Do these items sound too far-fetched for you? You could do something a little more affordable or usual. Go for customized car items and wears. For car items, create a customized neck and throw pillows. By customized, we mean you can buy a normal one and put your own design and inscription on it. The inscription could be a special message to the person or his/her favourite quote or message. You can also try images of their favourite celebrity or public figure. Better still, stay safe by using the receiver’s own image.
The same should apply to other items like car-centered T-shirts, car dice, car fragrances and the likes. These might sound very common but there are very good ways to show how much you care. The tip to getting customizing right is to use professional hands and to ensure that whatever inscription or image used in the customization is in line with your loved one’s preference and not yours, as there is often the temptation to go for items we love instead of what the receiver loves.
Is your loved one a handyman? An awesome mechanical set won’t be a bad idea too. Though there is a high probability that the person might already have these items, there is still no harm in trying this out. You can take a sneak peek at what the person already has, to decipher what you should or shouldn’t go for.
Car Cleaning Kit
With all said and done, there would always be need to clean the car. No car lover loves a dirty car. Find out the person’s favourite cleaning kit and buy a range of the products. Items like a dashboard spray, scratch remover, shampoo, napkins and the likes, would make an awesome gift pack. Don’t forget to sweeten your pack with some chocolates and flowers as the case may be.
In conclusion, you cannot override that one thing your loved one has always craved for. It doesn’t have to be car related for it to be appreciated. It is often better to go for an item that has been specifically mentioned than the one that is presumed.
