Great Gifts for New Car Owners

No matter what age you are, when you pass your driving test and finally get your hands on some keys to a new ride – it is an exciting time. Not everyone will be able to buy a brand new set of wheels, but it is still their first car – and something that should be celebrated! 

So here is a list of great gifts suitable for any person who has finally got a set of wheels!

Depending on the age of the car – this could be heaven-sent. When you have places to go, but your heating system isn’t playing ball, you’re going to have fogged-up windows. A defogger cloth is the best thing for it. It quickly gives a streak-free clear window.

Ice Scraper 

For those who have been standing with a credit card trying to scrape off the ice or running back and forth from a tap to get rid of all of the ice – you know it is no fun. Scraping the ice off the car before driving is a must in terms of safety, but it is just one more thing that car owners need to take care of. 

A very sturdy model with a glove attachment is one of the fanciest ones you can choose because there is nothing worse than cold hands while scraping ice off the car. 

Car Cleaning Kit

Getting your car detailed every once in a while will leave it smelling and feeling fresh – but an in-between clean is good for the paintwork and keeping the car rust-free. A range of carcare products like wax, chamois cloth, buffer, and more will turn cleaning the car into the long session that it should be. 

Having a kit that has everything you need in it can save a lot of money on detailing, but it also means they will have the right products because we all know that the wrong cloth or a bad soap can leave streaks, smears and leave the car looking worse than before. 


The new leather smell in a car fresh from the production line is lovely, but the smell of a 15-year-old car that has seen better days? Not so much. There are more options when it comes to in-car scents than ever before. There are the pine-scented trees we all know, but you can also get high-end car fragrance options. Buying a car scent isn’t easy! But think about the person, and you’ll soon know if it should be a leather and tobacco smell or a jasmine and vanilla. 

Emergency Kit

There are more than a few things that they’ll need an emergency kit for, and often, it doesn’t come high on the list of things they will think about getting. Here are some of the things you’ll need: 

  • Flashlight with batteries
  • A-Z
  • First Aid Kit
  • Bulbs (that fit the car)
  • Flat Tire Sealant
  • Blankets

And anything else that is appropriate for your location and the typical weather. For example, if you live somewhere that is often hot, here are a few extra things to consider: Embrace the Sun: Must-Have Car Accessories for Summer Weather
