Ask Patty’s Gift Garage: Week Two

Published Nov 20th 2006, 6:11pm by Jody DeVere in Featured Articles

Last week we mentioned some cool gifts to get that car-loving mom, sister, girlfriend or co-worker. Now we have even more cute ideas. Get your wallets ready ladies!

License_plate_holderGirls Love Wheels has a large assortment of car accessories and decor. We really like their collection of license plate covers. Sure, you see them all over, but enough with the “My daughter is an Honor Student” examples (not that you shouldn’t be proud; you should). How about a pink leopard plate holder! They even have one with ladybugs or one with paw prints. Check out their large selection.

Caricature Instead of getting a gift for your friend that is for the car, why not get something to her of how much she loves cars? You can get these funny car caricatures and add in your friend or even yourself! Why not add in a picture of the whole family? You send in your pic and they add it into some of their fun templates and print out a truly unique present. 

Minxypinksteering2 Most steering wheel covers are ugly, let’s face it. Who wants some geriatric-looking nubby rubber on their wheel? Hmmm… might be a nice hand massager while waiting in traffic… Well, instead, opt for style! These pink MINXY steering wheel and seatbelt covers are adorable and will fit most vehicles. Check out the entire line of MINXY interior pieces at Fast Chick

Chevy_seatbelt_belt_red Do you want to shout to the world that you are a car gal? Try doing it by keeping the car accessories on you! Flaunt your fashion sense with a seatbelt belt from Everything Carz. You can get them in many different colors and from Dodge, General Motors, Ford, and Honda. This flashy red GM belt is just our style!

Dax_shadow_copy Everything Carz has even more neat stuff to offer. They have handbags that are made from used truck and tractor inner-tubes that would otherwise be part of landfills that pollute the Earth. And they are seriously cute too. These tubes are collected from tire centers cleaned using an environmentally friendly process. They use fine hand dyed smooth grain & embossed leathers for the trim to add a touch of color. They are completely handmade and unique, and stand up to inclement weather! Check out all the styles!

Vwbarbie I promised last week I would share the Barbie VW Bug with you so here we go. There is a limited production run of Barbie Volkswagens that were made this fall. The exterior is a shocking hot pink and the interior is an understated black with pink trim. VW is only making thirteen of these pink Barbie Bugs and they won’t even leave Mexico. If you know someone down south and you think you’d like to have one for the holidays, you will have to fork over $24,368.
