The 4 best gifts for the car lover in your life

Today, we’re rounding up the four best gifts for the car lover in your life to make your holiday shopping that much easier:

  1. A dash cam. We hope it’ll never come in handy, but it’s always good to have a visual record of the road in case of an accident, making headache-inducing conversations with your insurance company that much simpler. There are many makes and models to choose from, we like this one from Garmin.
  2. A small, battery-powered handheld vacuum cleaner. To keep their car looking its best in between detail services, handheld vacuums come in handy when it’s time to clean up that french fry mess in the back seat! (Bonus — it’s also great around the house for hard to reach areas like in kitchen and bathroom drawers!)
  3. An emergency roadside kit. This one from AAA is fairly comprehensive and will help your loved one in case their car is disabled. Especially with the winter season and big holiday road trips, it’s always better to be prepared ahead of long hauls and bad weather.
  4. A deluxe hand detail from CarCare To Go! There’s no better gift than that new car feeling and now you can give that to your loved ones with gift cards available now.

If your car-loving friend or family happens to be local to the D.C. area, check out our holiday gift guide to shopping local for more ideas on how to shop for them or any other loved one in your life while also supporting local businesses.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
