Car Accessories Gift Ideas For Anyone

Car accessories make great gift ideas for the car lover in your life. But they are also great for anyone in general, and for any occasion. For example, personalized bling license plate frames make great gift ideas and they fit anyone’s budget. Of course a dash cam makes a great gift as well.

When it comes to gift giving, sometimes you need to think outside of the box, as it really is the thought that counts. Some people think that giving a gift is what counts. Not that it doesn’t. But you have to make the distinction between what you like and what you know the individual will like. You see, those two things are not always synonymous. When it comes to gift giving, it’s all about what the person receiving the gift would like, not about what you like for them.

In a nutshell, it’s all about getting that person the right gift for him or her, based on what the person would like. That’s easy when it comes to considering car accessories for gifts, because you’ve got lots of great items to choose from.

Car Accessories Gift Ideas

    I was just looking for something to get my sister for this Christmas and the idea of car accessories came up, the ones you listed are all great ideas. I’m actually considering getting her a dash cam since it could come in handy in case of a car accident. Do you know if it’s safe to leave the dash cams in the car while parked somewhere on the street? I mean, the cams are pretty big and won’t it attract thieves?

      A dash cam is a great gift idea for anyone and any occasion. It’s definitely safe to leave the dash cam in the car, as it works while it’s in the car to capture any damage done to your car while in park mode. There are small dash cams that are discrete, like the Garmin, the APEMAN mini and a few others. These cams are easily hidden so no one would know that there’s a dash cam in the vehicle. Mirror dash cams are also another options. So you’ve got lots of options to choose from, in terms of discretely designed dash cams.

    Hi Mathew,

    This is a very nice list of gift ideas/ necessary accessories for a car owner.

    Some of them are must-haves. I learned this earlier this week when I’d gone to visit a newborn nephew in the family. At the hospital’s gate was this desperate guy whose car just could not start. His model was the same as the one I was using and so he confided in me that he needed help. The battery was dead/not working. Problem is, I could not help. I did not have a jump starter kit. 

    This set me thinking- had I been in a medical emergency, what could happen if the car’s battery became faulty before getting help? I’ll need to think about preparedness moving forward!

      These car accessories are ‘must haves’ for anyone really and they do make great gifts any time of the year. A portable battery jump starter kit is something we should all have because you just never know when your vehicle’s battery will dies on you. It certainly is wise to be prepared for certain eventualities, that’s for sure.

      Hey Paul
      You are most welcome. Sometimes gift giving can be a hassle especially if you are not sure what the person would like. But anyone of these gifts would be perfect for anyone any time of the year. For example, who would not appreciate having their own portable power bank charger for their cell phone? With this little gadget we can make sure our cell phone is always charged and it saves us the effort trying to find an outlet.

    Like they say, making the little things count always make friendship last longer. I do not have to buy a car before a person can appreciate me but then, anyone would appreciate getting them something of greater needs in their car such as the ones listed here. Thank you so much and you have given me a lot of ideas as to what I should make  my Christmas gifts be for my dad. Thumbs up

    Hi Matthew, Wow! I must confess, these are really amazing and beautiful car accessories gift ideas for anyone. Among these items, I really love the portable cell phone charger. At this point in time, this is what I wish a friend or anyone to give me as a gift in order to keep my phone ON always.

      Absolutely! A portable phone charger is a must these days to make sure your cell phone is always charged and ready, especially in the case of an emergency. I hope you get your wish of someone getting you one. The cool thing about it is that this little item fits anyone’s budget, just in case, you need to get it for yourself.

    You’re very very correct about the idea of gift giving. We should give gifts that the receiver will be very happy to receive (gift they will like when they see it). I have seen some persons receiving gifts they aren’t happy to receive because they don’t like it; that’s not an idea gift. These gifts listed here are ideal. I love almost all of them and everyone will probably do.

      Some people really get the gift giving thing wrong. They figure they can give someone else something that they like and the recipient would love it as much as they do, only to realize that that’s not the case. That’s when they get the response of “You shouldn’t have.” LOL, and they mean it. The way people use their cell phones these days, I’d say a portable charger would be a fantastic gift for anyone, not just the car enthusiast.

    My wife really loves it when I give her stuff to pimp out her ride.:) she also worried all the time about breaking down lol. I was thinking of getting her a dashcam but I think now I see that nicely compact battery booster she might think of me as her hero this Christmas. 

    Thanks for the awesome car gift ideas.

      Hi Katja
      You;re most welcome. These are great gifts all year ’round for sure. I definitely support the idea of a cell phone holder for safe driving. Custom vehicle floor mats are also great and complete the interior look of the vehicle. Sometimes we just need to think outside the box for gift giving ideas and when they are unique, they make such a huge difference. It shows that you were really thinking about the person and what they might need.

      You are right, some of these gifts are “must haves.” Just think,if you had a portable battery jump started, you would have been able to help that guy out. A portable battery jump starter can be a life saver, and so can the portable cell phone charger. As the saying goes, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

    Hi Mathew, thank you very much for publishing a great idea to gift others with Car Accessories. For the past few days, I’m thinking to give a nice gift my friend, After reading your article, “Anker Portable Cell Phone Charger” in my mind. Can you tell is this charge fast? Hope to get more great ideas from you in the future.

      Hi Abdul
      The Anker portable charges are top of the line and they charge pretty quickly. There are lots of options to choose from and some have two and three ports so you can charge more than one phone or other device at a time. A portable cell phone charger is a great gift for anyone. It’s thoughtful and you’re making sure that the ones you love would always have their cell phone charged. A dead or dying cell phone battery defeats the purpose of having a cell phone. With the portable charger, they can always be assured that their phone is charged and ready to use, especially in an emergency.

    This is a very timely site with Christmas just a month away.  The array of products for cars was something that I have not seen in one spot.  I particularly think that the phone mounts are very practical.  I do have a question.  I am wondering, since you are pointing me to Amazon, if there is product damage or something, would I go directly to Amazon.  I buy from Amazon frequently and have had no difficulties.  Your site is organized with a clear description of each product. I like the fact that all the products for cars were lumped together.

      Hi Anastazja
      We absolutely agree that the phone mount is very practical. Despite the admonition, some people are still using their cell phone form a hand held perspective, even while they are driving. That’s crazy, so having a phone mount is the safer way to go. Well, based on your experience on buying from Amazon, I am sure that you’ll continue to have a great experience. So should fell just as confident to buy this product from Amazon. What I love about Amazon is that they make sure that their customers are taken care of, regardless of who the seller of the product is.

    Hi, 

    Thanks for writing this article! I often have a mild pain in my back, so for me, the car seat for back support might come in handy. I will be referring some of my friends to your site, because there’s a lot in this article that might appeal to them. Thanks for the heads up!

    Have a great day!

So you definitely want to make sure you’re comfortable while you’re on the road. You definitely don’t want to exacerbate the situation.

    I love the idea of a portable car battery jump starter. I’d just be scared that, for whatever reason, it would fail to work when I need it. I’d still carry jumper cables, just in case. The car seat back support looks really nice, but I’ve tried one in a car before. It is great for the back, but for some reason, my head feels like it leans back to far. Portable cell phone chargers are great for any time anywhere. These are some really great ideas!

      Hey Cathy
      A portable car battery jump starter is a great little tool for anyone to have in their car. I understand your trepidation, but the thing about jumper cables is that you have to wait for a good Samaritan to come along to help you out. On the other hand, I absolutely agree with you about the portable cell phone charger. That’s definitely a ‘must have’ for anyone. You definitely need to make sure you can make a call or two, especially in the case of an emergency.

A dash cam is a great way for anyone to protect themselves from that happening, since you’ll have evidence of what actually happened on the road.
