The best Christmas gifts for electric car drivers

With Christmas just around the corner, we’re all searching for those perfect last-minute gifts for our loved ones. And what do you get the person who has already gets cheaper, greener driving with an electric vehicle?

Don’t worry – we’ve got the perfect gift ideas to suit all budgets for the EV drivers in your life.

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

1. 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 air fresheners, 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.

Or, if you fancy smelling like a billionaire and want something totally different – for only £6, you can purchase an Elon Musk smelling car air freshener.

2. Green number plate

Why don’t you give the unique gift of a green number plate? Or better yet, a green, personalised number plate? This thoughtful present is tailored to the individual and makes their EV even more special.

It’s a gift that keeps on giving, as green number plates show off that their vehicle is electric and offers benefits such as free or cheaper parking and free entry into zero-emission zones.

Green number plates for electric cars can cost as little as £18 per plate, too – making it an easy and cost-effective present for EV drivers.

3. Home EV charger

Whilst you won’t be able to get your charger installed by Christmas, why not start the process and give the gift of an EV charger?

A home EV charger is by far the most convenient way to charge an electric vehicle. There is no need to hang around a public charging point for hours or, even worse, queue to use a charger. You can charge your vehicle whenever suits you, no waiting, no stress.

Getting a dedicated home electric vehicle charger installed also allows you to benefit from faster-charging speeds, charging three times faster than a standard 3-pin plug charger. It is also the safest way to charge an electric car at home.

4. Warm up winter mornings with a coffee cup

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 – least of all their new electric car.


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

5. 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.
