The more expensive gifts:

  1. Dash cam - NEXTBASE 522GW Dash Cam (€179)
    This dash cam leads in HD video quality, has touch screen and great wireless performance. It also has Amazon Alexa built-in! This is first dash cam with an emergency SOS feature so, if you have an accident an alert can be sent to the emergency services sharing your location.
  2. Jump starter - NOCO Genius UltraSafe Lithium Jump Starter (€119)
    This jump starter provides up to 20 jump starts on a single charge, and will jump start a flat battery in seconds. It also doubles as a charger for your mobile in case of an emergency. The nifty device even has a flashlight built-in, so you’ll never get stuck in dark in those winter months.
  3. Car stereo - Sony DSXA410BT Car Stereo (€85)
    What’s a car journey without some accompanying music or radio chat? This multimedia stereo has bluetooth, voice control and near-field technology (NFC) capabilities. This means that when you get into your car all you need to do is hold your smartphone close to the stereo’s volume dial and your phone will connect! Hands-free phonecalls and spotify playlists have never been easier. 

The more in-expensive gifts:

  1. Car engine fault code reader - Autel AutoLink AL319 Universal OBD2 Reader (€44)
    This one is for the car functions enthusiasts out there. It’s an Onboard Diagnostics (OBD) scanner, which basically acts as a troubleshooter for your car. It helps you to monitor and regulate you car’s different functions. Users can verify repairs or solve basic engine and driveability problems without needing to pay for a mechanic check.
  2. Car storage bin - DRIVE Car Bin (€23)
    We know that a bin doesn’t seem like the most glamorous of Christmas gifts, but the practical people in your life will really appreciate this one! It’s spacious but compact and can strap around a car seat. It can also be used as a storage bin, we’re thinking of those pesky toys that always seem to find a home under the seats.
  3. Car phone mount - Belkin In Car Vent Mount (€22)
    This phone mount adjusts in size to fit your smartphone so you can safely take phone calls. A cool feature is it can rotate 180 degrees so you can view your Google Maps in portrait or landscape!
