With December 25 only a few days away, we thought we’d put you in the holiday spirit with a couple of automotive-themed Christmas items.
It’s not too late to get your ride in a festive mood. Unless you’re sharing an Uber sleigh with Santa Claus, your vehicle probably doesn’t exude Christmas. There are a couple of easy ways to fix that: decorate your car or truck like it’s ready to be placed under the tree, or literally put it under a Christmas tree.
First, place Christmas-themed items on your car. For only a few dollars, you can put Santa, a big red bow or another holiday-themed decoration on your ride. A quick check of Amazon finds all sorts of items you can place on your car that are sure to get people in the holiday mood, from the cute (reindeer antlers and a Rudolph nose) to the somewhat creepy (a pair of Santa Claus legs to stick out of your trunk.) If you want to make a bigger, bolder statement, try sticking a big red bow on your hood. No matter what you do, other drivers will applaud your attempt at spreading some good cheer as your drive around the Valley this December.
If you’ve ever bought a Christmas tree from a lot, you’ve probably driven at least a short distance with a tree on top of your vehicle. There’s a jollier way to get around without removing the tree from your roof: keep it there all month. With the appropriately-named Christmas Car Tree (as seen on TV!) you can do just that, with a tree you attach to your roof with industrial snaps, rubber-tipped hooks, and suction cups. The best part is, this tree comes complete with 70 LED lights and it folds flat so you can easily get into your garage.
If it’s too late for you to decorate your ride for this year, plan ahead for 2019 and order your vehicle decorations now to be ready for next Christmas. Of course, if you need a reputable auto body shop at any time, whether or not it’s the holidays, contact Ric’s Body & Paint.
