This time of year flies by so quickly, that I’ve decided to start my holiday shopping early. Most of the time I plan to begin Christmas shopping after Thanksgiving or even the first or second week of December, but I’ve finally learned my lesson. I plan to do a lot of my shopping online this year. It’s easier, I don’t have to fight the crowds, and since I won’t be out shopping I’ll be home when the deliveries come! Most sites have free shipping this time of year or holiday specials, and many of the sales in stores are also available online. I’m so excited! One of the hardest people to shop for in my family is my oldest son, Boobie. He turns twenty a few weeks after Christmas and we’ve struggled for years with what to get for him. I think what makes it so hard is that he has a great job so he gets what he wants for himself, and he also has had a girlfriend for many years and she likes to shop for him too. So what do you get your grown child that has what he wants? Well, I came up with some great Holiday gift ideas for the car enthusiast in your life. Well, my grown child is a car enthusiast. It has grown into one of his favorite hobbies, he’s done a lot of little upgrades to his car and helped his friends work on theirs. He’s done major work to his car too, and he has a group of friends that all have cars like his and they trade car parts and go for drives to lakes and have a fun BBQ. When he’s in the garage tinkering with his car, he’s also blasting his music. He loves his music and it gets him in his zone when he’s out there working on his car. He also builds cars for a living, and he shared with me that they can listen to music at work too. I found out that JBL.com has free shipping and returns on their products this holiday season. Not only that, you get lifetime support on your JBL products and now through November 22, 2014 the wireless JBL Flip 2 Speaker is on sale for $20 off! I got to thinking, and knew that my son would love this speaker while he’s out working on his car or even at work. It would also be perfect when he and his friends are hanging out at the lake or anytime really, and it comes in a few different colors to suit anyone’s style. I thought it would be a fun idea to put together a gift basket with things that I know he would like. The first item, of course, being the wireless JBL Flip 2 portable speaker with Bluetooth capabilities. It’s easy to just add in some things he could use on his car like lint free car wash towels, leather cleaner, de-greasing spray, hand cleaner that removed all the dirt and grime from his hands and under his nails. After that, it’s easy to just throw in a gift card to his favorite auto store for any necessities he may need. I can’t forget his favorite homemade chocolate chip cookies that can be kept in the tin and are easy to take on the go. They can be shared with friends or coworkers, or just as an easy snack. Really, any excuse to give him cookies is a good one, he’s obsessed with these. He lives in t-shirts and always likes new ones with cool car themed slogans or the logo for his car on them, so that would be a great addition and something he’s sure to love. I know that he would love these items in a holiday gift basket, it’s everything he can use, plus a few items he wouldn’t even think to purchase himself. I may even buy a few more speakers for our teens in the other colors. Since they’re on sale and I don’t have to pay for shipping, why not? The speaker is small and portable, but loud and powerful. You can connect it to your phone through Bluetooth capabilities and it charges quickly. You can stand it on its side, or lay it down, the volume can be changed either on the speaker itself or you can control it through your phone. I love the little zip case that it come with as well, keeps it safe as well as portable. For more detailed specifications on this speaker you can check it out on the JBL website.
