Driving around Asheville, from the decorations, to the need to flip on those heated-seats, the holidays are in full swing in western North Carolina. Many of our readers have car-lovers and enthusiasts for whom they are shopping, but what can you get them? In this post and the next, we will discuss eleven key gift ideas for the car-people in your life.


1) Fix Those Dents and Dings

Regardless of how much your friend or family member loves their vehicle, their car is still susceptible to dents and dings from a variety of sources:

  • Wind-blown debris from autumn storms
  • Hailstones
  • Falling ice from cars/carports
  • Wild shopping cars
  • Car doors and fenders

In the Asheville area, the DentFX is a great choice for gifting dent and ding repairs to your friends and family. DentFX will go to them to make the estimate and repair, so they do not have to drive to an autobody shop.

2) 180-Degree Rearview Mirror

Is there a driver in your life you know would love to feel like they are racing at Le Mans, or Talladega Superspeedway? For around $60, you could give the gift of a no-blind-spot review mirror that offers a full 180-degree field of view, eliminates blind spots, and reduces distortion. These mirrors are used by racecar drivers and police offers across the world.

3) Top Gear and the Grand Tour Seasons

The British-based television show Top Gear, and its Amazon Prime-Video counterpart, The Grand Tour are must-see-tv shows for the car-enthusiasts in your life. Both programs are hosted by automobile journalists Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, a truly field-of-dreams cast for car-lovers. A small sample of the type of scenes car people will love, include:

  • Testing supercars
  • Insane car stunts
  • Driving old beater cars
  • Traveling the world
  • Off-road adventures
  • Wild racing

4) Signs and License Plates

For the car-enthusiast who has a space to decorate, consider giving collecting and gifting vintage road signs and license plates. You might begin a collection of old plates from ever state, or even every country.

5) Massage and Heated Car Seat Cushion

For the drivers in your life who make long, back-testing trips across the state or country, consider giving the gift of a heated car seat cushion. These massage/heated seat covers cost between $50 and $70, and can be purchased from Amazon or in most malls.
