This cover folds up into its own headpiece when not in use and tucks inside most glove boxes, so you can pull it out whenever you need it. Warning: this universal cover fits most front seats, but it hasn’t been confirmed to fit reindeer-drawn sleighs.

truck mat

BedRug Custom Truck Bed Mat

Who it’s for: The truck owner that enjoys campingCamping is great, bonfires are great, eating a hot dog cooked over said bonfire is great, sleeping on the ground in a tent is decidedly less great. With the BedRug custom truck bed mat, turn your truck bed into a people bed and sleep the sleep of kings. When your friends wake up at 5am covered in dew with a backache that they won’t completely shake until noon, you’ll be snoozing away, happy you prepared for comfort. Just make sure they save you some of the eggs they made for breakfast; a comfy bed is no reason to go hungry after all. And when you’re not camping, you can use the softer bed liner to protect your precious cargo. No more worrying about scratching furniture or damaging your truck when those same tent relatives ask you for help moving their couch.

noco genius

NOCO Genius Boost Sport Jump Starter

Who it’s for: The relative that loves to take road tripsYou hope to go your entire life without needing emergency measures like this one. But the peace of mind that is instilled when you KNOW that if your loved one’s battery dies, they have the tools necessary to get their vehicle up and running again can’t be put into words. Batteries are at their most vulnerable in the cold climates, and I don’t want to imagine my family members stranded out in the middle of a winter storm over the holidays. Make sure they will always get back to the safety of their home this holiday with the NOCO Genius Sport Jump Starter.

seat protector

etrailer Cargo Area Protector

Who it’s for: That person who brings their dogs (or their crock pot) EVERYWHERENobody wants to deep clean their car. And just trying your best to keep it clean will only take you so far. Eventually you will take your dogs for a ride, or you will spill a drink, or throw some muddy/snowy gear in the back. And you’re stuck: now it’s either deep clean your car, or live with the mess you’ve created. What if I told you there is a third option? With some preparation, all of those messes could be avoided. With a cargo protector, make sure that cleaning up the messes that life throws at you (or into your trunk) are as easy as possible to clean up. No more dog hair, no more mud, no more hassle. This is a must-have gift for you, for your friends, for your family, for anybody that drives and doesn’t want a mess in their car.

wineskin

Coghlan's Leather Wineskin

Who it’s for: The hiker that wants to stay hydrated and prepared, or that camper who wants to be a BIT extra You can never have enough “insert favorite beverage here” when you’re out camping. Whether that's water, kool-aid, hot coffee, or a cold drink, this leather wineskin will make sure that you have a comfortable place to keep a full liter of whatever liquid you need at a moment’s notice (yes, it’s also fantastic for wine). Make sure you’re storing your liquids in style next time you go camping, and don’t be caught with cottonmouth in the wilderness.

winter safety kit

Winter Road Safety Kit

Who it’s for: Anyone that drives. Literally anyone.It is no shocker to anyone that winter is a dangerous time to be on the road. From the biggest truck with the most snow-ready tires to the smallest sedan that struggles in the rain, there is no vehicle that is 100% safe when mother nature decides that we’re ALL celebrating a white christmas, whether we want to or not. This holiday season, make sure your loved ones are prepared for the worst with a winter road safety kit. This kit comes with a set of GripTrax plates to help you if your vehicle is stuck in snow, and if that isn’t enough, there is a windshield protector to protect from snow accumulation, an ice scraper to keep your windshield clear, and an LED flare to signal for assistance. We wish we could give the gift of “don’t have to drive in inclement weather anymore”, but this is definitely the next best thing.
Ashley Y
Why Ashley Y gifted it: This is a great gift to give to someone you love! Especially if it's someone that travels more often. It even comes with a windshield cover! I don't have one yet so this is definitely on my wishlist!
hitch cover

Hitch Covers

Who it’s for: The person who LOVES customizing their thingsWe all have that friend or family member who is always asked to borrow their truck, trailer, etc. Maybe they helped you move, maybe they hauled a load of raw materials for your latest project, or maybe they were there when you bought that new washer and dryer. But they’ve always been there when you need them. This holiday season it’s a great time to pay back that kindness with a bit of customization. Endorse their favorite sports team, hobby, or any other interest with a custom hitch cover, all while keeping the hitch receiver free from debris when it’s not in use. This gift makes a fantastic stocking stuffer for the hitch-owner in your life.

Rain Guards

Putco Rain Guards

Who it’s for: The car owner that wants to protect their vehicle from the elements We’ve all been there, maybe you left a window down, or maybe your vehicle wasn’t as waterproof as you thought, but getting moisture in your vehicle can be a major inconvenience. Putco Rain Guards make a great gift for any vehicle owner, from the busy soccer mom, to the hard worker, to the car camper who is looking for a bit more airflow without the risk of being rained on. We won’t tell anyone if you get a set for yourself too. Protecting your vehicle from the elements is a great way to increase its longevity, and in some cases, even its resale value. Give the gift of practicality this year with Putco Rain Guards.
