Get Them a Winter Vehicle Safety Kit as a Holiday Present

November 15, 2017

During the winter, you never want to take risks. You certainly wouldn’t leave your home unprepared for a sudden storm or power outage. Why not take the same precautions when it comes to your vehicle? A disastrous situation could occur at any time. Even if you’ve just got a flat tire in frigid, snowy weather, it can be a dangerous scenario. Always have a vehicle safety kit in the trunk.

Why A Gift For the Holidays?

Do you have a new driver in the family? A winter vehicle safety kit is the perfect gift. Especially with inexperienced drivers, there is a high chance of being caught in a sticky situation. Being prepared is the best gift you could give. Safety kits add another layer of personality and specialty to a vehicle. If you’re stumped, and don’t know what to get your new driver or new vehicle owner for the holidays, consider a vehicle safety kit.

What to Prepare

Let’s get down to the bare essentials–what you absolutely need, and what you can get for under $20.

  • Flashlight. This is the number one item you should have in your safety kit, along with spare batteries. Flashlights have so many uses–from simply providing visual aid to creating a signal during low visibility.
  • Water and food. It doesn’t have to be complicated, but invest in a few long-lasting supplies that would be helpful for survival. Water and small non-perishable snacks, like chocolate bars or granola bars, are perfect.
  • Blankets. This doesn’t have to cost you anything, if you have a spare in your home! But, it can be incredibly useful if you find yourself caught in frigid winter weather without working heat.
  • First aid kit. Don’t spend too much time thinking about what you’ll need in this kit. Focus on the basics: bandages, alcohol swabs, ibuprofen, burn cream, etc. This will help you get through minor injuries.
  • Litter. It sounds odd, but kitty litter can actually give your tires traction if you get stuck on an ice patch. Keep a box in your trunk just in case.

Going Above and Beyond

Don’t stop there–use your imagination! Perhaps you could include something like a small shovel or even a fire extinguisher. A box of tools is useful, and it doesn’t have to be plentiful. Even a simple screwdriver can solve many problems. Why not throw in a few road flares? These are excellent in low visibility if you find yourself stuck on the shoulder. And you’d be surprised how much someone can actually fix with a roll of duct tape.

As long as you have the basics, you’ll be able to build off of them to create the perfect winter vehicle safety kit. This holiday season, show your loved ones that you care by providing them with safety, comfort, and utility.
