Last-Minute Holiday Gifts: Garage Edition

With about a week until the world’s biggest holiday, you’ve wrapped up any new garage door projects, winterized your garage, but what about last-minute gifts? Garage related gifts are an excellent idea for car drivers in the family. You can find exciting present ideas below.  

LED Flashlights

LED flashlights are fantastic for car kits because they come in a range of sizes and light outputs. Breaking down is a nightmare, but at night it is even worse. You could be left in the dark without the ability to see your problem. 

Sure, you can use the flashlight on your phone to identify the problem, but an LED flashlight provides a brighter light quality. Add one into the stocking of family members with cars, especially teenage drivers, to give yourself peace of mind that they’ll be able to see. 

Pocket Screwdriver

A pocket screwdriver is another excellent addition to an emergency car kit because they’re easy to store and great to have on hand. Stanley has a 4-in-1 screwdriver that is about that size of a Sharpie. Throw one of these into your loved ones’ stockings as well.

Smart Battery Charger

A battery charger is something that most of us don’t think about until the moment you need one. A dead car battery can throw a wrench into your holiday travels, and having to wait for a service vehicle to bring you a new one can be a real downer during the winter in Boise. 

Brands like Genius have developed small, portable battery chargers for this reason. They can be thrown into the trunk of your car or in the toolbox in your truck and be there when you need it. 

Car Phone Mounts

Pretty much anyone who drives is guilty of messing with their phone while driving, which is why cellphone mounts are so important. According to TeenSafe, 26 percent of vehicle-related accidents occur while drivers use their phones. 

Keychain Car Escape Tools

Another good thing to gift your kids, the women in your life, or anyone else you think could use one is a car escape tool that goes on their keychain. Accidents can become even more dangerous if seatbelts get jammed or you can’t open doors. 

Thinking ahead about the possibility of trouble by giving someone this tool that contains a seatbelt cutter and a window breaker can save their life. There are several options on the market for you to choose from, so have a little look around.

Emergency Road Kit

Since adding screwdrivers and flashlights to your emergency kit has been discussed in this piece, let’s talk about that emergency kit itself. An ideal kit will contain things like essential auto tools, jumper cables, batteries, and other items.

If you are creating one as a gift, make sure to look around to see what typical car kits contain. Also, consider throwing in things like a utility knife, whistle, emergency poncho, and include a first aid kit.
