If you are not originally from Texas, you have no idea what we deal with regularly. The struggle is real sometimes. On the other hand, I've got some great gift ideas for Christmas for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list this year, if they live in the Lone Star State. I personally need them, so I decided to share three things that every Texan should own. 

1. An ice scraper for your windshield. FYI, those of you not from Texas, we don't get much snow in the winter but ICE? Oh man yeah. In January and February you will want to get up super early to either turn on your car to defrost your windows or, if you are impatient and always running late like me, you better get you one of these.

2. A car wash kit. If you've never heard the saying that Texas you can go through all four seasons in one day, it is very true. It is not unusual to wash your vehicle one day thinking the rest of the week is going to be beautiful and sunny but get a surprise downpour the next day. Or better yet WIND. Your once spotless, clean car is now packed full of blowing dirt and dust, leaving it filthy again.

3. A windshield repair kit. Let me preface this by saying every single car I have ever had (and I've had many) has gotten some kind of windshield ding. I'm not being dramatic, I'm not exaggerating. Every single one. Including the one I am currently driving. Why is this you ask? Because many of us, especially here in West Texas, commute to work daily. May as well save money by just having your own kit and repairing the nick yourself!
