Top 5 Christmas Gifts For Your Car 2016

LaFontaine Automotive Group —  December 15, 2015

Christmas is only a few days away, and if you’re still looking for gifts you’re three months behind. But have no fear! Below are some automotive gifts so hot, you’d think it was summer (which it kind of is…what season is this?)

Air Tire

  1. Bluetooth Cassette Adapter

It’s safe to say that most of us have either a smart phone or an iPod of some sort, and if you don’t, you’re so two thousand and late (Black Eyed Peas reference).

Sadly, while many of us have the latest in phone and music technology, our cars may be something out of the dinosaur age. Having nothing but a cassette player might spell doom for many passengers that can’t rock out to Michael Bolton…but fear not! Just slip in the Bluetooth Cassette Adapter, and BOOM you can connect to your favorite smart phone or music device.

Now your Ford Pinto can blast the gangster rap it’s always dreamed of.

  1. Automatic Cordless Tire Inflator

Let’s be honest: we think about our tire pressure about as often as we think about our medulla oblongata (if you think about your medulla oblongata then this joke doesn’t work on you). Yet it’s the first thing on our minds when we get a flat tire and we’re stuck on the side of the road.

Many don’t have time to drive to a service center or Belle Tire to check their tire pressure, and so the Automatic Cordless Tire Inflator is a godsend.

Simply connect it to your tire stem and you’re all set. It even shuts off automatically when it’s reached the desire psi, so you don’t have to keep checking to see if it’s good. Finally our tires will get the justice they deserve.

  1. Glove Box Car Jump Starter


Flat tires are certainly an inconvenience, but few things are worse than a car that won’t start. You may be all alone with no other cars nearby to help you jump it, or worse, it’s that creepy guy from accounting with the dandruff and psoriasis.

In these instances, you are all alone…but you don’t have to be! With the Glove Box Electric Car Jump Starter, you can jump your own car solo-no help needed! Now you can reject that creepy guy from accounting with confidence.

  1. Heated Massage Cushion

Even though we’re not having the coldest of winters (if we have, indeed, decided to call this “winter”), you can bet here in Michigan that we’ll eventually get the -50 degree days that make every part of being outside miserable.

Car seats can freeze very quickly, chilling your bum to ungodly temperatures. With the Heated Massage Cushion, not only will you have a warm embrace on your derriere, but you’ll get a fantastic massage during your drive.

Now being stuck in bumper to bumper traffic doesn’t seem so bad.

  1. The No Blind Spot Rear View Mirror

My youngest brother is beginning driver’s education, which means my blood pressure has reached critical levels.

Driving with him can be harrowing when he doesn’t quite understand the importance of “blind spots.” While the No Blind Spot Rear View Mirror won’t eliminate that worry, it will help him become more comfortable on the highway, which makes me more comfortable, which means my heart doesn’t explode.

Any parent of a new driver (or just anyone that hates their blind spots) would be wise to pick up one of these.
