10 Awesome Gifts for Kia Owners

gift for kia ownersIt might not quite be time for the holidays yet, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about presents for the car lovers in your life. Those who have birthdays or other occasions during the fall will definitely appreciate one of these gifts just as much as those who receive them during the winter holidays. If you’re looking for a great present for someone who drives a Kia (or any kind of car), here are ten awesome gifts any car lover would definitely appreciate:

  1. Gift certificates for service – While servicing a car is rarely expensive, giving someone a gift certificate to cover an oil change or another type of service that you know their vehicle needs is a great way to show them that you care about them and their car. Most Kia service departments sell gift certificates, but you can also simply take their car in for the service and pay for it as your gift. Either way, someone who loves their car will love that you took the time to think about that car and get it the service it needs.
  2. A travel bag – It’s always a good idea to have a spare bag in your car, whether for toting groceries or simply for throwing a few things into for an impromptu road trip or day trip. If you have a Kia lover on your gift list, you might consider getting them a branded Kia travel bag. They’ll have a bag that matches their car, which is a great way to keep track of that bag and so that even when that bag is empty and being stored in the car, they never have to worry about it feeling like clutter.
  3. Sunglasses – You might not think that sunglasses are an appropriate gift for the driver in your life, but if you have someone in your life that loves to drive, they are probably in need of a great pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses are as useful during the winter as they are during the summer. Glare from the sun can be as blinding off of snow as it is off of other cars. Grab them a stylish, functional pair of sunglasses to keep their eyes protected during all weather and all driving conditions.
  4. A great travel mug – Just because someone is on the road a lot doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be able to enjoy their morning coffee. A great travel mug that keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold is the very best way to make sure someone who loves to drive is also able to get their caffeine fix. Look for a mug that closes securely, but is also easy to open and close, so the driver can drink their coffee even while driving.
  5. A GPS – If your driver has a one of Kia’s newer models, he might already have GPS built right into the vehicle. This isn’t always the case, however, depending on what trim he went with and what model year he purchased. If he doesn’t have GPS, having a dedicated one can be a great way to avoid traffic jams, beat construction, and find new locations. Smartphones might include some of these features, but they are rarely as accurate as real GPS.
  6. Battery jumper – You can now buy little packs of energy that you can simply clip onto your battery to jump it back to life if it dies. With cold weather approaching, it is always a good idea to have something on hand that will kick start the car if it refuses to start one cold morning. While Kia vehicles are at the head of the class when it comes to reliability, most people don’t change out their batteries on a regular schedule, but then do not have any recourse when that battery refuses to produce a spark. A jump pack can be a great way to make sure your car lover is never stranded.
  7. Driving gloves – Driving gloves might be a little old school, but if you are trying to find a gift for someone who seriously loves their car, it might be exactly what they are looking for. Even if your car owner doesn’t have a vehicle that sports the old wooden steering wheel that is often associated with these gloves, the gloves will make driving on very hot and very cold days alike—he’ll never burn or freeze his hands on the steering wheel again.
  8. Driving shoes – Like driving gloves, driving shoes aren’t something that you see very often, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t still applicable to the modern’s driver. The right pair of shoes can make switching from gas to brake easier and more accurate, and can just simply make driving more fun.
  9. Road kit – There’s nothing that can make driving safer or more fun than having the right tools. That means jumper cables, tape, a flashlight, some band aids, charging cables, and screwdrivers. In case he ever needs to make a quick repair, change a tire, or jump his car or another, he’ll have all of the tools he needs.
  10. Kia maintenance journals – If you have someone on your gift list that loves to keep track of their maintenance, mileage, gas usage, and more, there’s no better gift than a Kia branded notebook. These little journals fit right in a Kia vehicle’s jockey box and can help the car-obsessed keep that car healthy and happy.
