car toysWhether you’re looking for something to get yourself or your favorite car fanatic for the holidays, knowing what’s “in” in the car toy world and what’s “out” can be difficult. Surprising a gearhead with something they haven’t seen before or didn’t know they needed can be even more difficult. That’s why we put together a list of some of our favorite (and most useful) car gadgets of 2019 to help you wow them (or pick a little something up for yourself – we won’t judge.)

Portable Humidifier

As your Denver auto body shop, we know it is dry here in the mile-high city, so having a little added humidity never hurts – especially in the winter. Luckily all you need is a USB plug-in these days to have a mini humidifier (and/or oil diffuser!) with you everywhere you go. Offer yourself a little moment of relaxation with some lavender essential oil and a warm air mist while you’re stuck in that rush hour traffic on I-25 or I-70. Or gift one to your favorite commuter. We could all use a little more serenity on our daily drive, right?

USB Mini Fridge

Yeah, you read that right. A mini-fridge big enough to hold six cans but light enough to be ported from the car to your favorite picnic destination, all powered easily by a USB charger. Don’t have a USB port in your vehicle? If you’re looking at the Cooluli Electric Mini-Fridge, you’ve got options. It can easily be powered by the cigarette lighter or your vehicle’s main, too. Oh, and did we mention it keeps things warm as well as cool? Those holiday potluck dishes will arrive at exactly the right temperature, no re-warm needed. If you snag this one BEFORE the holidays, we wouldn’t blame you.

Digital Tire Pressure Gauge

Gone are the days of having to use the old school tire pressure gauge and hoping you’re reading it right but never really being quite sure. With a digital tire pressure gauge, you can take the guesswork out of it. Never wonder if those tires that look just a little bit low need more air or not. During the winter in the Front Range when the temperature changes from mild to cold in the snap of a finger, it’s important to be able to check your tires quickly and accurately. Those quick changes in weather can impact the pressure in your tires – and when there’s snow on the roads, you especially don’t want to be caught driving on under-filled tires.

Back Seat Organizer

Okay, this one is on the practical side of things, but if you know a new mom or a family that has a nearly impossible time keeping their vehicle organized, or someone who’s driving their car for Lyft or Uber and wants to offer their riders a more luxurious experience, you can’t beat a back seat organizer. It’s the perfect place to hold all the kids’ toys or beverages, tissues, charging cables, and mints or candy. Whatever you need it for, there are a number of options with different pockets of different sizes that can help anyone organize their vehicle, no matter how messy it might have been before.

Alexa-Enabled Car Charger

Those voice-activated assistants are pretty much everywhere these days, so why should your car be any different? An Alexa-Enabled car charger plugs into the cigarette lighter in your vehicle and charges your devices while also offering the power of Alexa in your vehicle. Want to add something to your shopping list? Order a pizza to arrive by the time you get home? Play a game or find a fun, random fact? Check the weather your final destination? This car charger has you covered and then some. We wouldn’t recommend gifting this one to your friend who’s afraid robots are taking over the world, though.

Whatever you or your favorite car fanatic is looking for, there’s a gadget to make it happen. This list is really just the tip of the iceberg, but it’s a good starting point. What are you gifting your autophiles this year?
