Just as every year, Christmas season seems to have arrived too quickly! It’s as if we blinked and the entire year flew by… although this year this might actually be a good thing, right?
In any case, it’s the perfect time to think about gifts for your loved ones for the upcoming Christmas. We understand that picking the right present may seem like a daunting task. This is why we prepared this short, handy list of potential gifts for a car enthusiast! Why car enthusiast, you may ask? Well, because everyone has one in their family, or among friends.
And we are car enthusiasts here as well, so we thought it fit. We hope you enjoy our selection and it helps you with this year’s gift choices!
Practical yet full of thought
You know what they say, better safe than sorry. That’s why we usually carry so much stuff inside of our cars! Left to their own devices – be it a cleaning rag, medical kit, glass cleaner or tire shine – they rattle about the trunk and the overall look is rather messy. Getting your loved one a car trunk organizer as a practical gift will show that you understand it pretty well!
Another idea is a… phone holder. You might think it’s boring. But just as our phones are not just phones anymore – they are our little entertainment devices, GPS systems and social media centrals – so are the phone holders. Nowadays they can not only hold your phone securely when you drive, but also charge it wirelessly. Not only that, some of them release the phone from their grip as soon as you wave your hand near its sensor! For a car enthusiast who likes small yet useful gadgets, such a phone holder will bring a lot of joy.
If you don’t like the first two gift ideas but you’d still like to give something practical, custom floor mats might be the answer. There are many online and offline stores that take custom orders for floor mats – as long as you know your loved one’s car make and model, you should be set!
Elegant and sophisticated
What if the person you’re gifting has everything under the sun for their car? This calls for a perfect accessory for every car enthusiast – automotive themed earrings for her, cufflinks for him! You can wear them inside and outside of the car, and depending on the design they can be worn for every occasion. Christmas dinner? Check. Car meet? Check!
A must-have for any vehicle owner
Of course this list wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t mention our own products. BlackVue dashcams are the ultimate present for the car lover. We want to venture even further and suggest that it’s the perfect gift for any vehicle owner. You can’t put price on safety, security and peace of mind – and those are the things BlackVue dashcams offer.
Once installed, the dashcam will keep an eye on everything going on on the road. You can choose from a wide range of BlackVue dashcam models, depending on the features you’d like included and your budget.
Need crystal clear, crisp image quality in 4K? Get the DR900X series (comes in several variations!). If you’d like your loved one to stay connected at all times, LTE-enabled DR750-2CH LTE model is the way to go. And lastly, if you’re looking for something hassle-free, without any bells and whistles while still doing its job – the DR590X or DR590 series are worth a closer look.
For the dashcam owners
There are still a lot of options to choose from if the person you are looking to buy a gift for already owns a BlackVue dashcam!
The best accessory for a BlackVue dashcam owner is undoubtedly a Parking Mode accessory. From the Power Magic Pro hardwiring kit, the Power Magic Battery Pack and the Power Magic Ultra Battery, you have a choice of three absolute hits that can accommodate every BlackVue user.
If you’re looking for something smaller – the newly released BlackVue CPL filter is a great addition to a BlackVue dashcam. It protects from any unwanted glare and reflections, making sure the image quality of the recorded footage is crystal clear and contrasted. The BlackVue CPL Filter (BF-1) is compatible with DR900X, DR750X, DR900S, DR750S as well as DR650S front cameras.
Another great choice is an additional microSD card – BlackVue dashcams support up to 256GB, and the BlackVue microSD cards are rigorously tested for the harsh environment they need to work in. Regular microSD cards don’t stand a chance in a dashcam – they need to be high endurance to withstand constant writing and overwriting of the footage. And since it’s recommended to change your dashcam’s microSD card every six months or so, a new microSD card is always a practical gift that will be put to good use.
We hope this short list helped you with the tough selection of the perfect Christmas present for your car loving family member or friend. Happy shopping!
