Auto Themed Christmas Gift Ideas
Buy Your Loved One an Auto Themed Gift this Year
Here at Big Sky Collision Center, we love vehicles. The intricacies of the engines, the sleek designs, the memories and stories they tell. If you’re here, you or a loved one hold that same passion for the automobile.
The problem is that buying something for the car enthusiast is hard! You don’t want to get them the wrong thing. And too often the universal items (like a steering wheel cover) are cheesy or don’t match their style. So we’ve put our heads together, and we have come up with a variety of gifts that you can get your vehicle enthusiast this year.
Auto Detailing for their Ride
Those who love cars and trucks love keeping them in pristine shape. And we all should be doing this! Vehicles last longer and they’re safer to drive when they have been kept clean. Swing on by Big Sky Collision Center and pick up a gift certificate for a full auto detailing. It will save your enthusiast some time, and get professional quality cleaning done.
A DIY Detailing Kit
Of course many enthusiasts don’t want someone else touching their rig. That’s understandable! We put a lot of love into our vehicles and even though the detailers here at Big Sky are nothing but professional, it’s fun to do it yourself. You can grab a car care kit from Griot’s Garage to help them keep it in top shape. Costs range from about $50 – $500+ depending on the kit.
A New Paint Job
A lot of us have project cars. Many of the projects can be done at home in the garage. For instance, you can swap out an engine in the garage (or in the driveway for that matter). But when it comes time to put a new paint job, nothing is better than a professional paint job.
Our auto painting techs are amazing! Years of experience and professionalism means that the paint on your vehicle comes out as good as it left the factory floor.
Emergency Kit for the Trunk
We have stressed the importance of the essentials for your car’s trunk. Don’t get stuck in a Montana winter without them! But you don’t have to build a makeshift emergency kit. You can swing by one of the stores here in town and pick one up for relatively cheap.
For example, stop by Target and grab this Orion 79 piece kit for under $40. It’s got most of what you need (but you will still want a few more pieces in case you’re waiting for a long time.
Who here has a driving hat? Driving gloves? Driving shoes? Driving apparel has largely gone away opting instead for just wearing whatever you happen to have on at the moment. For those who love their vehicles, the apparel is as much a part of the experience as cranking up the car.
Driving apparel can be almost anything. Any brand, any style, and look; as long as you’re comfortable and you love it. Perhaps start with a pair of driving gloves like these Stringback Driving Gloves? They’re a bit pricy at $125, but they’re pretty slick!
A Dashcam for Billings Drivers
Let’s face it; Billings has some pretty terrible drivers! Of course no matter where you go you’re going to hear that sentiment from the locals (and they usually blame those from out of town). We have our share of bad drivers here, and often it’s tough to prove your case in the event of an accident.
Tough to prove your case unless you have video evidence! Dashcams have become popular, and they now shoot crystal clear footage at a relatively low price. Grab one at most box stores for under $100 (some under $25).
Big Sky Collision Center says to Have a Safe Christmas!
Christmas is coming, there are just a few more days of shopping until it’s here. If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for the car enthusiast in your life, then hopefully you have a few more ideas. If they do dent, bang, crash, wreck, or otherwise damage their pride and joy, bring it to Big Sky Collision Center. As the best auto body repair shop in Billings, we will get it restored to its former glory.
