The dreaded day has arrived when your baby now has their driver’s license. You decide to reward them with their very own vehicle.
Before gifting them the car, there are some modifications you should make. Read about the must-have accessories to add to your teenager’s car.
Add a Phone Mount
It seems like teenagers can’t put their phones down. However, they can’t text their friends, change the music, or turn on the GPS while driving, as it causes them to look away from the road.
Install a phone mount in their car to encourage safe driving. It makes answering phone calls and looking at directions much easier while driving. They can keep their eyes on the road and still queue up a couple of songs in the process.
Upgrade the Sound System
Whether you’re gifting your teen a new or used car, the factory sound system is most likely the bare minimum. While it’s acceptable for some, you may want to treat your child to an upgraded sound system.
Install new speakers, replace the radio, and add a new amplifier to supply more power to the speakers. It’s a great way for your kid to enjoy their favorite music while focusing on the road.
Durable Seat Covers
Whenever a soda spills or dirt sticks to the car seats, people often forget to clean it up. That’s why seat covers are perfect for people of all ages. Even when they make a mistake, it won’t impact the original seats.
Pick out the most durable seat cover materials for your teenager. The strong material will ensure your teenager doesn’t tear up the seats.
Help them choose a color and design so that they can be a part of the personalization process. Your teenager will immensely appreciate the gesture and adore their brand-new seat covers.
Store Safety Items
You can’t let your kid start driving until you know they’re safe. Some must-have accessories that aren’t as luxurious as the others are safety items that will protect your child in case of an accident. These include
- Jumper cables
- Car jack
- Spare tire
- Basic tool set
With these items readily available, your child will have the tools they need in case they break down while driving.
The final piece to add to your teenager’s car isn’t the average item. Add one last accessory that holds meaning. Whether it’s an inside joke in the family or a piece that encapsulates one of your child’s passions, include it in the car.
Some ideas are ceramic car coasters, a custom air freshener, a special keychain, a license plate frame, or an adorable dashboard buddy! No matter what you choose, your child will greatly appreciate the gesture.
