The holiday season has arrived, and it is a great time to start thinking about creative holiday gift ideas for the new driver in your life. Have a teen driver at home? GDL Institute is happy to share some suggestions for fun and useful gifts that the recipient will enjoy, and that the giver would be happy to give!
Car-themed stocking stuffers. Fill up a stocking with some useful tools. Ideas include sunglasses, key chains, tire gauges, air fresheners, stick-on blind spot mirrors, ice scrappers, or gas station gift certificates.
Gift Certificate for a package of car washes or detailing service. Rain, snow, sleet, mud and dust all leave a vehicle looking less than shiny and new. Any driver would enjoy a gift certificate for a car wash or detailing service. A coupon booklet for free car washes makes a nice gift for the holiday season. Check with your favorite local car wash provider, many offer coupon booklets or package discounts for multiple washes this time of year.
Emergency car kit. One of the most important things to remember about safe driving is that you should always be prepared for emergencies. It can happen to anyone; you could end up with a flat tire, run out of gas, breakdown due to engine trouble, or become stuck due to adverse weather conditions. Put together a box of items that a new driver can keep stored in their vehicle in case of emergency. For ideas on what to include, check out our blog post, “Rules for the Road: Be Prepared With a Roadside Emergency Kit for Your Car.”
We’d like to wish you a happy holiday season from everyone here at GDL Institute! Remember, our Drug and Alcohol course and permit test are available online 24/7. An online course is the perfect option if you wish to complete the course over the busy holiday season, or it even makes a great gift for a teen who is ready to begin driver training.
