The real tip for buying Christmas presents is to think about who you are buying for; what are their interests, their likes and dislikes and their phobias! It seems obvious, but with a well targeted present you can get away with spending less and in today’s climate of cut-backs that’s got to be a bonus. What’s more, when it comes to the office Secret Santa no-one wants to part with too much money.
Here at Adrian Flux the presents in the Secret Santa sack naturally tend to have to have a motoring bias. Here are five of the most viewed items in a motorist’s Secret Santa trawl.
- The Auto Emergency Kit on Present Finder is an all-in-one tool designed to help out in the event of an accident. It combines a blade to cut through a seat belt, a pointed hammer to shatter windows, an air-bag spear, a bright LED torch, a red flashing warning light and a whistle to attract attention.
- For those interested in safety and becoming a better driver the book Roadcraft: The Police Driver’s Handbook: is essential reading. Used by the police service to train their drivers, it aims to increase awareness of all factors that affect driving from characteristics of the vehicle to road and traffic conditions.
- If your partner is the sort who keeps losing car tickets, season tickets etc then the visor organisers on Extreme Auto Accessories could be just the thing. There are also visor CD organisers to sort out the jumble of CDs that accumulate on the shelf under the glove compartment.
- For the office joker the fake parking tickets could keep him amused, and his colleagues annoyed, in the New Year, more serious present hunters could get a parking timer, for a forgetful friend.
- Over at Nodding Toys there’s a great selection of these perennial favourites if your recipient would appreciate a silent canine friend for the journey.
