The holidays are almost here, which means it is time to start searching for the perfect gifts for your friends and family. Typically, OneRequest is here to help you shop for a car, but today we're providing some helpful gift guides to make your holiday shopping experience easier. Since OneRequest headquarters are located in the Kansas City Metro area, the team found some local automotive and gift businesses you can support and shop from during the 2020 holiday season.


Midwest winter weather is in full swing during the holidays. It's important to protect a vehicle's exterior to maintain its integrity. Why not gift someone proper exterior car protection items? It's a practical gift that will keep on giving throughout the winter months. A more personalized gift option would be a bumper sticker or license plate frame.

There are multiple exterior car gift options. You could set someone up with wind shield wiper covers and a wind shield protector screen. You could also gift someone a car detailing service of their choice. Someone might want to get their windows tinted or someone might love a customized car wrap. The possibilities are endless!

Most people see the exterior of the car, but the interior is just as important. The interior gives drivers multiple opportunities to update and customize their vehicle. You've probably seen plenty of cars with bumper stickers, but have you seen any with interior LED floor lights? How about personalized steering wheels or cup holders? There are endless ways to customize a vehicle's interior.

Rally House sells seat covers and car mats to represent almost any professional or collegiate sports team. Kansas City is also home to National Auto Sound & Security, where shoppers can find everything from stereos and subwoofers to dash cams and navigation tools. Interior car accessories are the perfect gift for anyone in your life who enjoys making their car completely their own.

Car Miscellaneous

If you're looking for a long-lasting and meaningful gift, consider a car wash membership or auto repair shop gift card or credit. Most of the car detailing and auto shops mentioned above, also offer gift cards. If you know someone who plans on detailing the exterior or interior of their vehicle in the summer months, that could be a great present to pay it forward. One more option would be a membership or tickets to their local automotive museum.

A car wash membership usually allows you to pay once and receive multiple car washes over a selected period of time. It works in a similar way to other monthly or yearly memberships. Memberships make great long-term gifts.

These local car washes are offering great deals on memberships - what a great gift!
Visit GO Car Wash, Paradise Bay Car Wash or Tommy's Express Car Wash.

Did you know there are over 175 automotive museums in the United States? Kansas City has its very own automotive museum. You can purchase memberships or one-time tickets. With over 30 vehicles in a 10,000 square foot viewing facility, the Kansas City Automotive Museum is a must-see, if you're in the area.
