Christmas gift ideas for young drivers

If you’ve just bought your first car, chances are you’re completely obsessed with it, from the windscreen wipers to the tail lights and all that’s in between.

We’ve compiled a list of the top ten gifts any new driver would be thrilled to receive, so when your friends and family ask what you want this Christmas, you’ll know exactly what to ask for.

AA breakdown kit

The AA’s Breakdown and Safety Kit includes everything you could need for any unexpected incidents on the road.

It includes a hazard warning triangle, a reflective emergency jacket, a tow rope, LED torch, car hammer, seatbelt cutter, boost cables and a tyre inflator, all in a handy zip bag.

New driver survival kit

This New Driver Survival Kit comes filled with mini reminders and good luck charms to keep drivers safe on the road.

It includes celebration confetti, a penny towards a new car, coffee to keep them alert, L-plates to rip up, sweets to congratulate them on their ‘sweet’ success, amongst many, many others.

It’s the perfect keepsake for someone who’s recently passed their test.

Tartan fleece blanket

Whether you’re off to a festival or stranded by the roadside, this fleecy blanket will keep you warm in all weathers.

It can also double up as a picnic blanket or be used to keep car seats protected from muddy paws – just bung it in the wash when you’re done.

Furry hanging dice

Furry dice are both iconic and a rite of passage. They can be easily hung on coat hooks or a rear-view mirror and come in pink, black, blue, red and white.

360 degree disco light

This rechargeable disco light fixes onto your rear window and features seven different coloured lights on a 360 degree base, just make sure you don’t use it while driving!

VW Camper Van car boot organiser

Keep your boot tidy with this foldable storage box in a fun VW Camper Van design.

It has two compartments and can hold up to 30kg – perfect for taking food and beers round to a friend’s.

Antlers and red nose car set

For a more seasonal gift look no further than this set of reindeer antlers and accompanying red nose.

Fix the nose to the front of your car and an antler onto each front window to create your very own Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Pass plus course

The Pass Plus is an ideal gift for any driver who’s passed their test within the last year as it helps increase your confidence driving, not to mention the fact that it can help you secure lower car insurance.

The six practical module sessions cover driving in towns, in different weathers, on rural roads, at night, on dual carriageways and on motorways.

There’s no test to pass but modules are assessed and you can request a certificate at the end of all the assessments to pass on to insurers.

Yankee Candle car freshener jar

When you’ve been overloaded with smells of cinnamon and pine cones all Christmas, these ‘Beach Vacation’ car fresheners by Yankee will be a welcome relief.

The pack includes Beach Walk, Sun & Sand and Island Spa and will keep your car smelling fresh for up to 12 weeks.

We hope our Christmas gift ideas have inspired you (even if that’s just inspiration for your own Christmas list!) – happy shopping!
