Christmas gift ideas for EV drivers

With Christmas just around the corner, we’re all searching for those perfect last-minute gifts for our loved ones. What do you get the person who has it all already? We’ve got some great gift ideas to suit all budgets for the EV drivers in your life.

So, without any further ado, here are our top 5 Christmas gift ideas for electric car owners this year:

Novelty stocking fillers are always a treat

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a few novelty gifts to fill a stocking! From socks to mugs, t-shirts to iron-on badges, there is a wide range of gift ideas to explore this year.

In fact, socks are such a great gift to give at Christmas. Hardly anyone buys them for themselves, so this is your chance to give a unique and playful gift. If your loved one drives a Tesla, there’s bound to be a perfect pair of socks for them here!

Another great idea is to pick up a novelty t-shirt to be worn proudly behind the wheel. Tongue in cheek slogans are definitely a great way to show your appreciation for your friends and family, so take a look at this t-shirt for the proud EV driver you know.

Get that new car smell, permanently

Remember the first day you opened the door to your new car? Now with this fancy candle, you can bring that scent into the home and give the gift of the new car smell this Christmas. This candle will ensure that every time your loved one gets home it feels like day one with their EV all over again.

But of course, you could also give the gift of a new fragrance for their EV this year too. In fact, there’s an Elon Musk car air freshener which will “make your car smell like the world’s hardest working billionaire”, what better way is there to show your love and appreciation?

Tesla tequila? Sí, por favor!

What better present this year than a collaboration between their favourite EV brand and their favourite alcoholic beverage?

Tesla have released a premium tequila product this Christmas, in an even more impressive logo shaped bottle. This really is product design on another level, but what else would you expect from Tesla?

Whilst this is on the pricier side, it certainly would be a stand out gift to give this year. Just remember not to get behind the wheel after giving this a try!

Warm up winter mornings

Early mornings are a struggle for many of us. Give the gift of portable morning caffeine this Christmas and you may well be someone’s new favourite person.

Of course, there are plenty of options available on the market, but you don’t have to break the bank to get a personalised option with a secure lid – nobody wants their car seats drenched in coffee or tea!

We like this brushed chrome option that comes in a variety of style choices.

Staying safe on the roads this winter

In the winter, you never know what conditions you’ll be faced with on the morning drive. When its dark, icy, and snowy, it can be a treacherous journey. You can keep your loved ones safe by giving the gift of a winter driver kit.

Whilst electric vehicles may have a more consistent and safe acceleration in the winter than petrol & diesel cars, it is still important to keep a winter driving kit in your boot for emergencies.

The AA have put together the perfect Winter Car Kit which features a snow shovel, high visibility vest, foil blanket and torch; all of which are self-contained within a canvas carry bag which won’t take up much room in the back of the car.

With this gift list, you can’t go far wrong with your final festive purchases.
