It never fails. In the middle of holiday craziness you realize you need to get a quick gift for a teacher, service person or holiday grab bag.
That’s a doubly tough mission when you know little about the person or have already gotten the top gifts on their lists. When in doubt, think auto.
Consider these auto gifts to keep their holidays – not to mention year – bright:
Munchkin Car Seat Protector & 2 Pack Car Shade Combo Kit. This keeps the baby safe and protects the car upholstery from all this inevitable spills and drips. It even offers a visual alert when the car’s interior is too hot for baby. In addition, the kit comes with a two-pack vinyl black shade with a release button. $17.22; www.wal-mart.com.
Life Hammer. So your car goes into water and the electric power goes out. How do you get out when the window can’t be rolled down? Or what if you’re in a crash and the seat belt won’t release? The good folks at AAA first told me about this hammer and I’ve kept one in my car ever since. Of course be sure to remind the recipient to put it in the glove box or somewhere else within easy reach of the driver. Life Hammer has a super sharp blade that slices through a locked seat belt. A double-tipped steel hammer can be used to smash through a car window. $19.95 at many retailers including www.amazon.com.
Heated Ice Scraper. This is one of those things people love but just don’t buy for themselves. The heated electronic windshield ice scraper has a U-shaped heating rod that melts away ice. It even comes with a light to guide the way in dark, snowy nights. Plug it into the car jack and it’s ready. $14.95 at various retailers including www.amazon.com.
Grumpy Girl Auto Bird Turd Emergency Kit. The minute you wash and wax your car the birds decorate it with their own calling cards. Besides the ugh factor, the waste also damaged the finish of the car if it’s not promptly removed. Cleaners, wipes, Baggies and more will get the driver on the road and looking pretty. $29.95 at www.target.com.
Lifeline AAA Emergency Auto Kit. The only thing worse than having your car break down is not having simple tools that could get you on the road. This kit has a booster cable, flashlight, fuses, and plenty more “must have” emergency necessities. $29.99 at various retailers including www.drugstore.com.
