Car Accessories For Girls
Looking for Car Accessories for Girls?
Girls just want to have fun, and that applies to having fun (and cute) car accessories for girls too.
Most of the time we merely think of our cars as transportation. What we rarely think about is, that for some of us, our cars are another place where we hang out with our friends, listening to music, talking and laughing and more. Or as that place, a little corner of the world, where we can be by ourselves to think as we just drive. But somewhere, on some level, we are aware of this extra living space that is not a part of our house, but still is an extension of it in a sense. And so we feel the desire to add our own touches to what would otherwise seem like almost any other car on the road.
Whether looking for car accessories for girls for yourself or as a gift for a daughter, friend or girlfriend...for a teen or a grandmother who is young at heart...you'll find some great ideas here.
Emergency and Car Repair for Girls - The Ulitmate Car Accesories for Girls
The most important car accessories for girls are the ones that help you out when things go wrong and keep you safe.
There are kits you can keep inside your car for minor problems, such as a band-aid if you get a little cut...or for more serious problems, such as jumper cables if your car battery dies.
Also, books on the basics of car maintenance and repair are helpful little gems too for any driver.
While this is mostly a novelty item (some of the items in this first aid like kit includes chocolate and breath mints) it does have some practical items in it such as band-aids and Instructions to Change a Flat Tire and Instructions to Jump Start a Dead Battery.
The Safety Girl Kit makes a great gift for girls, especially one who has just become a driver for the first time.
This emergency kit is great for some real roadside emergencies, it features many helpful items including jumper cables, a flashlight, adjustable wrench, tire gauge, voltage tester, air compressor, ratcheting bit driver, PVC electrical tape, slip joint pliers, life hammer, twenty cable ties, nylon string, HELP flag, and more all neatly stored in a compact, soft-sided bag. And it is pink! Makes a great gift!
Books About Cars for Girls
While it's not exactly an accessory, every girl should know at least the basics about cars...
Knowing a little info about what to do in an emergency, knowing proper car care and maintenance, knowing at least enough to get by when talking to mechanics...all of that can go a long way towards increasing her confidence and respect.
When I first got a car I found a book at the library geared towards women that I found really helpful to me. Unfortunately I haven't been able to track it down since then. So here are a couple other alternatives worth looking into.
Steering Wheel Covers for Girls
Steering wheel covers are probably one of the best car accessories for girls trying to personalize their vehicles. It's one of the first things you really notice if you look inside the car interior. Some steering wheel covers help keep the steering wheel to feel cooler in the summer and less cold in the winter. They help keep the steering wheel in good condition (which is nice when you resell the vehicle) or hide a steering wheel that has become faded and cracked and seen better days.
A cute or pretty steering wheel cover can even make you smile every time you start to drive.
Car Seat Covers for Girls
Just as a cute chair is an important decor element in a girl's room car seat covers make an impact in personalizing the interior of a car. This car accessory for girls is the equivalent of putting a slip cover on an old couch or chair. Whether you are trying to cover tears or stains or just want a fresh look car seat covers can give you that. And since the fabric of most cars come in neutral colors car seat covers give you a lot more options. And if your tastes change you can easily replace the car seat covers for something that fits your new style better.
Auto Accessories Combo Sets
Auto accessory sets, such as these pink zebra striped ones, often include seat covers, floor mats and steering wheel covers, and may also include things like license plate frames, cd visor organizers or keychains. The advantage to buying these items in a set, rather than separately is a savings in money.
Cute Floor Mats for Girls
Protect your shoes, keep your car floors from getting too dirty (floor mats are easier to clean than the interior carpeting inside a car) and look cute...even though they are often taken for granted, the floor mats in our cars serve many purposes.
Girly floor mats can be found in pink, with floral designs, with popular and cute characters like Hello Kitty, and so much more.
Girly Bumper Stickers
Bumper stickers are one of the few exterior accessories there are for cars. But they are certainly the best for getting any message you have across to your fellow drivers out there. Share your life philosophy or a funny quote...or just declare that you're a girly kind of girl with a cute bumper sticker. Here are a few girly bumper stickers picked from the popular print on demand site Zazzle.com
Car Accessories for Girls on eBay
eBay's auctions and "buy it now" items can be a good way to get accessories for a girls car at good prices.
Antenna Ball Toppers
You've got to love some of the unique and cute antenna ball toppers out there. Here is a fun one for girls that I found. I love her pink hair! I've also seen some fun ones like a chocolate dipped strawberry, a fancy crown, flowers and stars...and many more.
One tip about Antenna Ball Toppers...remove them before going through automatic car washes! ;)
