Gifts for Car Lover Guys, Boyfriends & Enthusiasts
Car Guy’s Safety & Maintenance Gifts
These five gifts are must haves for the driver who is always on the road. They are extremely handy in a pinch:
- Winplus High Output Portable USB Jump Starter – This device is a life saver, whether you are out in the middle of the desert with no one around or if your children left the back reading lights on in the van while it was sitting in the garage overnight. AND…it carries enough juice to charge your phone several times over in an emergency.
- WeatherTech Floormat System – I debated putting this in the cleaning and detailing. But if you live in an area prone to snow and mud, this gift will save a ton of time in cleaning and keep your interior looking pristine.
- POTEK Car Jump Starter with 150 PSI Tire Inflator/Air compressor,1000 Peak/500 Instant Amps with USB Port to Charge Iphone ,IPad, Kindle – This a great device to throw in the back of a car before a campout or long road trip. OR just keep it in the garage for when the kids need a quick bike tire fix or a ball inflated.
- Winplus Sunshade Sets– This set is a must for us in Arizona. There are few things worse than getting into your car and burning your appendages on every metal or plastic surface. This sunshade solves that problem. The main windshield shade keeps your parked car much cooler and the see through side shades add an additional protection from the glare. They fold up and easily store under the seats.
- Torin Big Red Hydraulic Trolley Floor Jack with Carrying Case, 2 Ton Capacity – This jack is a great choice for changing oil or changing tires than the small mechanical jack included in most car purchases. It is easy to raise and lower a minivan so you can do whatever needs to be done.
Car Warming Gifts
New Car Owner’s Gifts for Cleaning and Detailing:
Keeping your vehicle clean is always on the to do list. These thoughtful gifts make the job much quicker and can be easily available. Practical gifts like these should be on your shopping list.

- Carrand 93019 Final Touch Vent, Dash, and Crevice Detail Brush Set. This brush set is great for cleaning the dust out of the vents and getting into all the grooves and tight spaces of your dashboard. This detailing kit is the perfect gift a car fanatic.
- AmazonBasics Deluxe Microfiber Car Wash Mitt – A mitt like this is great for getting good coverage on the panel you are working on. AND..when you are finished, throw the microfiber wash mitt in the washer and dryer to be ready for the next go-around.
- Daiso Microfiber cleaning mitten – This handy mitten easily fits in a console cubby hole and is always handy for a quick dusting of the dashboard and console systems.
- Armor All Glass Wipes (25 ct.) – 2 Pack – These are always handy to have around, especially with young children who love to make fingerprint artwork on the passenger windows. Also, they are great to refresh the headlamps, keeping them shining brightly in the night. This is the perfect present for practical people and their beloved cars.
Unique Gadgets for your car lover boyfriend:
These gifts are great for making your interior work for you.
- Koomus Magnetic Phone Mount System – This phone mount can be purchased with a suction cup dashboard mount or, my personal favorite, the CD insert mount. With a magnetic mounting system, it holds your phone well without having to pry the jaws of life open to insert or remove your phone. LOVE IT!

- Knox Electric Cooler and Warmer for Car and Home with Automatic Locking Handle – 27 Quart (25 Liter) – A cooler is essential for long road trips to keep everyone’s drink cold and even those roadside picnic items like ham, cheese and mayo. Being electric makes it so you don’t have to stop regularly to refill the ice.
- BlueDriver Bluetooth Professional OBDII Scan Tool for iPhone, iPad & Android – Ever have a dashboard warning light go on and have no idea what it means? This gadget can help clear up the confusion and help you get your car repaired quicker.
- FORTEM Car Trunk Organizer For SUV Truck | Auto Durable Collapsible Cargo Storage | Non Slip Bottom Strips To Prevent Sliding | Bonus Foldable Thin Nylon Waterproof Cover – This will help keep groceries or gear from rolling all over the trunk.
