With Christmas just around the corner, you’ve probably already started your holiday shopping. If you’re a parent or guardian of a young driver who has just started becoming familiar with the responsibilities that accompany car ownership, you might consider some non-traditional gifts for them. Oftentimes, younger drivers are super excited about the freedom of having their first car, but they forget about the whole maintenance aspect. From replacing the wiper blades to getting regular oil changes, there’s a lot that comes with owning a car. So if you’re looking for gifts that can not only help them maintain their ride, but can also help them be a safer driver, the Denver Mobile Auto Glass team has some great ideas for you in today’s post. If you would like to schedule a windshield replacement in Denver for yourself or for a youngin, give us a call! In the meantime, read our holiday gift ideas for the young driver in your life.
Five Gift Ideas for Young Drivers
New Wiper Blades
Wiper blades are one of those vehicle features that need to be regularly maintained for optimal function, but which often go ignored — especially by younger drivers. New wiper blades make an excellent stocking stuffer. You can even get your young driver a tub of wiper fluid as an added gift. While they may think it’s a silly gift at first, they’ll be thankful to have good wipers when driving in their first snowstorm.
Tires with good tread are a necessity for driving anywhere, but especially in Colorado. That being said, new tires can be quite expensive, especially given that tire shops usually require that you replace both front or both back tires, even if only one is needed. The cost of tires can range anywhere from a couple hundred to more than a thousand dollars, and most youngsters who have just started driving don’t have that kind of money. If you want to ensure that the youthful driver in life has safe tires, consider getting them new tires for Christmas.
This might be better suited for a young adult driver who has a few years of driving experience under their belt. Tinted windows are a great gift option because, not only do they make a vehicle look super sleek and stylish, they also offer features such as UV protection. What’s more, the adhesive tint film can hold broken glass together in an accident, reducing the risk of injury from shattered glass.

Auto Glass Repairs
Sometimes, the best gifts for young drivers are the most practical ones. If the young driver in your life has a rock chip, chances are they’ll ignore it until it turns into a giant crack that stretches the length of their windshield. Not only is this dangerous, but they might also be more likely to get pulled over for operating a vehicle with a cracked windshield. Avoid the burden of having to pay the ticket fine that will probably fall on your shoulders by getting the gift of a windshield repair with Denver Mobile Auto Glass.
A New Windshield
If the young driver in your life already has a large crack in their windshield that grew out of a tiny chip, a new windshield is a gift that will keep on giving. Not only will you have peace of mind in knowing your young driver has a safe and secure windshield, but they will also enjoy driving their friends around in a vehicle that has a pristine windshield.
