Maybe you can get him a subscription to one of the music companies. Then he can have unlimited music which would be commercial free. If not that, get him AAA automobile card for towing etc.

I really like hkckk5's suggestions. I think the music subscription would be useful for entertainment, especially for a young person, and the AAA membership would be invaluable if the car ever breaks down or gets a flat tire. If you're looking for something a bit cheaper, then something to hang on his rear view mirror might be pretty cool.  :peace:

Not all cars come with satellite radio.

I would say cleaning kits or air fresheners.

I would get him an AAA membership of a gift card at a gas station, or a visa gift card and tell him it's for a full up.

I think a gas card is the better idea. A music subscription could end up doing more harm than good - especially if he is a young/new driver. Music vs. gas card = distractions vs. practical...

I'm in favor of the gas card as well. What's better then not having to use your own money as a young adult to get gas?

I like the gas card idea. Or some cleaning products to help take care of it.

I agree with the gas card and if it is not under warranty maybe a couple of oil changes when he needs them

That depends on you.  How much money do you have?  How much is gas in your area?  If gas is $4.50 in your town then $20 will not get you much gas.  If gas is $2 something then $20 will get you quite a bit.

As for the medal with St Christopher on it (not sure who or what that even is) again that would depend on you. I am assuming it has something to do with Catholics?  So that would depend on your alls beliefs.

I thought the St Christopher medal would have been nice but I guess my Grandson doesn't think so. I don't get it, I brought my daughter up Catholic but her kids are *bleep* Nilly when it comes to religion. For some reason Countrygirl that really bothers me :(

I second this suggestion! Set him up for success from a maintenance perspective
