Performance Tool Electric Car Jack

Flat tires can happen to anyone, so make sure your loved one is prepared for those oh-no moments with a Performance Tool Electric Car Jack. No one likes cranking their car up on the side of the road or in a parking lot. This electric jack solves that problem by plugging into a vehicle 12V outlet and raising/lowering the vehicle with the press of a remote-controlled button.

Your camper might not mind getting their hands dirty—but their car is another matter. Help them protect their seats from mud and moisture with this non-slip, collapsible etrailer Bucket Seat Protector. Easily slip it over the headrest and seat after a hike, bike ride, beach day, or float trip. It’s waterproof and machine washable, plus it’s small enough to fit in the glove compartment on those days when they’re not covered in yuck.

For the truck owner who needs just a little more room back there, the Erickson Big Bed Jr Load Extender & High-Mount Load Bar magically grants their wish.

Underhood Work Light

Meet the light that could guide Santa’s sleigh (sorry, Rudolph). This Underhood Work Light by Performance Tool takes up less than 18” of space in your toolbox but provides 450+ lumens of flood light wherever you need it. The retractable steel wires with hooks let you connect to almost any hood and provide the necessary light needed to tinker or fix ‘er up. It’s also a great work, garage, or shed light!

etrailer 2-in-1 Windshield Cover

Whether the forecast is for sun or snow, the etrailer 2-in-1 Windshield Cover has you, well…covered. One side of the reversible cover protects from snow and ice for zero scraping and the other side helps keeps the vehicle’s interior cooler and free of sun damage. It quickly and easily secures to side mirrors, is big enough to cover the windshield and wipers, and is a great gift for every driver on your list.

Rightline Gear SUV Tent

Shopping for someone who regularly camps in their car or a tent? Upgrade their life with this Rightline Gear SUV Tent. It builds on their car by providing a dry, sheltered, private space off the back of the SUV. And it’s better than a standard tent because it connects right to their sturdy, roomy vehicle. Every camper will appreciate the extra room, whether they stick a mattress inside for sleeping, use it as a makeshift “mudroom,” or just enjoy the weather-protected extra space.

Maybe they’re short, maybe their vehicle is tall, or maybe it’s a little of both…either way, they could use a handy stool like this Powerbuilt Tire Step. It brings all the parts they need within reach, making it perfect for loading gear on a roof rack, washing the windshield, or working under the hood. Whatever they need it for, this little lightweight step will make a huge difference!

REDARC TowPro Liberty Trailer Proportional Brake Controller

Rightline Gear Tailgating Canopy

It’s a gift for the tailgater, the camper, the fishing enthusiast, the beach-goer—basically, if they spend any time outdoors and have a van or SUV, they’ll love this portable Rightline Gear Tailgating Canopy.

It’s the perfect companion to help your loved one out of any emergency when you can’t be there in person.
