If you have a friend or loved one that will be taking a long road trip during the holiday season, consider treating him or her to a few seasonally scented holiday car air fresheners. Since they will be spending a lot of time in their vehicle, they'll be sure to appreciate the thoughtful gesture.
Holiday-scented car air fresheners come in a wide range of scents, ranging from fruity to floral and sweet to spicy. If you know the recipient's preferred scents, it'll be easy for you to pick out the most appropriately scented fresheners. If you're not sure what they'd like, however, you can't go wrong treating them to a few different scents to create a well-rounded gift.
Car air fresheners are versatile and come in a range of styles, from the classic cardboard hanging versions, to plastic clips that attach to a vehicle's air vents for maximum exposure. Aerosol spray fresheners are also available. The different freshener styles range in price and some even come in multi-packs for convenience.
Depending on your gift-giving budget, you can either surprise the recipient with one or two fresheners by themselves, or create a customized box or basket filled with other fun car-related items. If you're just treating a friend or family member to one fresheners, you can easily mail it in a small envelope if they live at a distance.
Here are some holiday-inspired car air freshener gift ideas to get you started:
1. Essential Road Trip Basket
For a friend planning a road trip to see family for the holidays, design a gift basket filled with goodies he or she can use along the way. Start with either a hanging, clip-style or spray freshener in a festive scent, such as pine, cranberry, cinnamon or Christmas cookie, and add easy-to-eat snacks, drinks and even an eye mask and blanket if the recipient will be a passenger.
Other ideas include a guide to the place your friend will be visiting if they've never been there, a road atlas and hand sanitizer.
2. Air Freshener Set
If you can't decide on just one or two car freshener scents, create basket filled with a variety for the recipient to sample and enjoy. Include a few of each freshener type in a full range of appealing holiday scents.
Pick creative festive fragrances, including pumpkin, pecan or apple pie, peppermint, apple cider, hot cocoa, cinnamon, balsam fir and fig.
