Gifts For People Who Drive A Lot

Phone Holder

An inexpensive gift that offers hands-off convenience all-year round to help someone you love reach their destination safely.

For anyone who relies heavily on navigation or takes sales calls on the road, a phone holder is a must.

This practical car accessory ensures safe, hands-free use while driving. And with several options and styles to choose from (for both iPhone and Android users), Amazon makes it easy to match their car’s interior with their personal style.

Anti-Glare Sunglasses

A thoughtful gift that combines style with practicality.

For those who spend extended hours on the road, whether it’s the harsh midday sun or the glaring headlights of oncoming traffic at night, limited visibility and eye strain makes these days a challenge. Often leading to tiredness, headaches, and more.

Anti-glare sunglasses are designed to significantly reduce glare and enhance clarity to provide a safer, more comfortable driving experience – making these the perfect gift for anyone driving for extended periods of time.

Amazon Echo Auto

For the one who loves gadgets and considers Alexa their BFF.

It’s an Alexa for the car that is perfect for car enthusiasts and commuters alike. Using hands-free, voice-controlled technology, a driver can play music, control smart home devices, reply to texts, and much more – all without taking their hands off the wheel or eyes off the road.

This clever device is sleek and small in design, yet feels like you’ve transformed your vehicle into a smart car.

Gifts For Car Maintenance & Safety

Rock Chip Redemption Cards

Perfect for an Idaho friend or family member who spends a lot of time on the road.

Rock chips are a common occurrence when driving on highways or neighborhood roads. Timely repair is critical and because rock chips happen year-round, a redemption card at Nu-Vu Auto Glass makes a great gift any time of the year.

The technicians at Nu-Vu Auto Glass can repair a small chip and have the vehicle in and out in around 20 minutes. Visit one of our three convenient locations in Idaho to purchase a redemption card your friend can use the next time they need a rock chip repaired.

Additionally, it’s a handy tool that can be used by anyone. Consider giving a quality tire pressure gauge to anyone in your life that owns a car.

Gifts For A Clean Car

Glass Cleaner

For a windshield that gleams and provides safer travels – day and night.

Whether you’re building a car cleaning kit, or just looking for the best windshield cleaner, consider giving Nu-Vu Auto Glass’s premium glass cleaner. Known for its streak-free finish, it’s a popular item available at every Nu-Vu Auto Glass location.

Appreciated by seasoned and new drivers alike, a windshield cleaner that reduces glare and enhances visibility is a must have – especially while driving in challenging weather or low-light situations.

Car Vacuum

A handy accessory to make maintaining vehicle cleanliness fast and easy.

For the car enthusiast that loves a clean car, a portable car vacuum makes cleaning tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas a breeze. For an affordable option, we like this handheld vacuum on Amazon offering multiple pieces and high power to ensure a thorough cleaning job.

Gifts For Winter Driving

Windshield protection cover

A great for any occasion with year-round usability.

Southeast Idaho is no stranger to a wide range of temperatures and heavy snowfalls. If you’re looking for a gift for someone who experiences cold snowy winters where they live like we do in Twin Falls, they’ll benefit from a windshield cover that shields the glass from frost, snow accumulation, and eliminates early morning scraping.

In the summer, it also serves as a sunshade, blocking out excessive heat and protecting the interior from sun damage. This is a great option for year-round usability, so you can gift it for any occasion!

Amazon has a few affordable windshield covers for ice, snow, and heat that are compatible with most vehicles. Consider this hassle-free gift to add to a loved ones vehicle inventory.

Rubber mats and cargo liners

Protects the interior during winter months from mud, spills, and general wear and tear.

Floor mats and cargo liners make excellent gifts for car enthusiasts or anyone who takes pride in the cleanliness and condition of their vehicle. Cargo liners are particularly valuable for those who frequently transport goods or sporting equipment in their vehicles.

Whether it’s a set of sleek all-weather floor mats or a durable cargo liner designed for adventure, these accessories come in a variety of options to add functionality and style to any car, truck, or SUV.
