Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for the Car Lover from Toyota of Plano


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and for those of you who have waited too long to order the always appreciated box of truffles and and flowers, shame on you! However, there’s no need to fret. We’ve come up a few last-minute gift ideas for the driver you love.

Dream car rental: Spring for a weekend rental of your significant other’s dream car. Pack a romantic picnic, drive to a make-out mountain and watch the sunset, or just crank up the tunes and cruise the ‘hood.

Mix CD: It was more practical than a costly upgrade of our car’s audio system to Bluetooth, satellite or internet streaming. More importantly, it was sweet and meaningful.

Car magazine subscription: Pretty much everything is available digitally these days, but there’s something fun about reading an actual print car magazine, according to one of our staff members. My husband also notes the nostalgia that comes along with flipping through the pages as he did as a child after saving up enough allowance to buy the latest issue.

Driving shoes: For folks with stick-shift sports cars, or those who just like to look the part, pick up a nice pair of driving shoes to adorn the feet of the one you adore.

Radar detector: Nothing ruins a hot date night like a visit from the friendly state patrol officer. Prevent future letdowns with a radar detector.

Defensive driving school: If your Valentine has any long-term potential, invest in a local defensive driving class for both of you. It’ll be a fun bonding experience, not to mention the peace of mind that comes with having a partner you trust completely with your car/life.

Fuel the flame with a gas gift card: For something a little less personal, but still thoughtful, pick up a gas station gift card. This might be more meaningful for couples separated by long distances.

Clean/service the car: Your messy Valentine would appreciate having their car professionally detailed to get the crumbs out. The cherry on top would be if it was taken in for a full service and oil change by someone else, thereby negating taking the kids to the mechanic. Help keep the family car clean by storing a booklet of full-service car washes in the vehicle.
