Valentine’s Day Gifts for Car Lovers

gifts for car lovers

The Big Day of Romance

Car lovers can be difficult to shop for on Valentine’s Day; however, we’ve provided a list of gift ideas to consider. While some people might be able to afford a new supercar (every car lover’s dream), some are just looking for accessories or even road trips. Read on to learn more about Valentine’s Day gifts for car lovers.

According to Autobytel, you should think about getting a car wash kit if your significant other already has a car they love. This includes a sponge, chamois cloth, premium wax, tire cleaner, detailer, and high-quality wash. You can also splurge for aluminum and chrome metal polish, perfect for making any car shine like new.

Next, consider a headlight restoration kit for older vehicles. Does your valentine’s car have yellow headlights? They might need a special kit to bring it back to the original condition. Such kits usually include abrasive materials, including multiple grades of sandpaper, cotton, and more. They also come with special compounds to restore lights to their original look.

Finally, if your valentine has a clunker, you might consider a diagnostic scan tool. Some car lovers enjoy owning a jalopy because it gives them a chance to do some work. However, fixing complex problems can be difficult if you’re not a technician. Consider an app or code reader (usually under $100) for Valentine’s Day.

The Best Christmas Movies For a Magical Season

Best Christmas Movies

Though there is much to disagree on when it comes to the holiday season, there’s one thing that can bring anyone together – a love of holiday films. In fact, AMC recently conducted a poll of the best Christmas movies. Thousands weighed in, and we have to agree with the results. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas! – The oldest movie on our list, this classic animated film first debuted in 1996 and has been airing year after year since, making it a true holiday staple.
  • A Christmas Story – We’re also a huge fan of 1983’s A Christmas Story, which – although it is family-friendly – has a bit more adult humor and is ideal to play in the background at any Christmas party.
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas – Similarly, 1993’s semi-spooky The Nightmare Before Christmas can light up television screens guilt-free, from October through December 25th.
  • The Santa Clause – One of our other favorites is 1994’s The Santa Clause, in which Tim Allen quickly finds himself in charge of Santa’s entire Christmas ordeal, beard and all.
  • Elf – Lastly, the newest film on our list is 2003’s Elf, which quickly became loved by both young and old. Who can deny Will Ferrell’s elven charm, especially when accompanied by the adorable Zooey Deschanel?

So what was AMC’s number one Christmas film? It was the 1990 classic, Home Alone.

What’s your favorite holiday movie? Come let us know at Cambridge Classic Ford!
