10 Gifts For New Drivers
Stumped on what to buy a newly passed driver? Don’t worry – we’ve got some ideas!
We all know that passing your driving test is a huge achievement that deserves to be celebrated, but it’s hard to work out what you should buy for the new driver if you want to celebrate with a gift. While we’re sure your recipient will be pleased with whatever they receive, it’s always good to know that the gift will come in useful. We’ve rounded up a few ideas, from dash cams to personalised playlists, to help you in your search for the perfect present.
1. Travel Mug
Shopping for a commuter, a student or an up-front coffee lover? Whether you get a personalised travel mug or a more expensive model, this gift will be particularly appreciated on frosty winter mornings!
2. Chocolates for the occasion
Not on the Highstreet is a great place to get out-of-the-box gifts for any occasion – including passing your driving test! From their website, you can buy these super cute ‘You’ve Passed!’ chocolates. Perfect for the new driver who loves a sweet treat.
3. Bluetooth-aux adaptor
Getting on the road is usually very expensive, and not everyone can afford a new car with Bluetooth. This can be a bit of a pain, especially as newer phones are beginning to not come with AUX jacks. But, fear not! For around £10, you can get a Bluetooth adapter that plugs into your car’s AUX port! What’s better than the gift of song?
4. A driving playlist
Talking about the gift of song, making a driving playlist could be the way to go! Load it with a mix of their favourite songs, your favourite songs (if they’re any good, that is!) and some absolute classics. This gift is really thoughtful, and free on Spotify. A chance to bestow your music genius on to someone else!
Help them explore the world – and lessen their chances of getting lost – with a Sat-nav! There’s so many different mdoels available, ranging from around £50 right up to £300. It definitely beats using an app on their phone to be led to the middle of nowhere and told GPS signal lost, that’s for sure…
6. Fancy car air freshener
If you’re going to go down the air freshener route, do it properly! These Sex Wax air fresheners smelly lovely and last ages. You never know, it might inspire them to keep their car cleaner for longer…
7. Dash cam
Dash cams are becoming more and more popular with drivers. The footage recorded can be used in case of an incident, if you’re contesting fault. You can read more about the benefits here. You’ll need to shop around with these, with models available from £30 to £200!
8. Key ring
Well, they’re going to need one for their first set of car keys! Despite what you may think, key rings don’t have to be a boring, or tacky! These personalised leather-stamped key rings are sure to please even the fussiest new driver.
Every car needs mints, of course! And, you should know by now, anything can be personalised. Getting Personal have a whole section dedicated to personalised mints. If you opt for this gift, at least you’ll always be fresh in the passenger seat!
10. Insurance on your car
Has the new driver not got their own car? Why not lend your car to them so they can keep on top of their driving skills? Our Car Sharing Insurance can be used from 1 hour to 30 days, so they can borrow it for anything from a trip to the shops to a weekend away!
