Looking for the Perfect Gift? Consider an Auto Safety Kit

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on December 22, 2011

Everyone seems to have that one person on their holiday shopping list who has everything, wants nothing, and is impossible to buy for. When you’re facing that person on your own list, consider giving an automobile safety kit. It’s a great way to tell someone you care about how much you value their safety.

Pre-packaged auto safety kits are available in many hardware and “big-box” stores, or you can put together a kit from scratch. Most auto safety kits include: safety lights, flags, and/or flares so other motorists can see the vehicle; a first aid kit; and personal items like flashlights and blankets that reflect body heat. Larger kits, naturally, have more components. Crank-operated radios are also popular, as are radios that broadcast weather and safety alerts for specific areas from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A small fire extinguisher may also come in handy.

Safety kits for the home can also be thoughtful gifts. Items for home safety include smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and flashlights and batteries. Bottled water and non-perishable food can be included in both car and home kits.

Nobody looks forward to getting into a car accident. By keeping a safety kit in your vehicle and following driver safety tips, however, you can be prepared for many different types of accidents, as well as for situations where your car breaks down or gets stuck in snow.
