2023 Holiday Car Detailing Gift Guide & Ideas


2023 Holiday Car Detailing Gift Guide

When the leaves start falling you know that the holiday season is just around the corner. Before we hit the holidays, we had to compile a comprehensive list that includes gift ideas from our DI team. This 2023 guide was developed to help you get the perfect detailing gift for that special detailer in your life and ranges from popular detailing staples, to many of the hot new detailing products and SEMA Show releases from this year. Check out these recommendations below and if you have any gift suggestions, just leave them in the comments section!

SEMA Releases

SEMA 2023 has come and gone, but this show was one of the best for detailing product releases in years! Some heavy hitting tool releases are shown in this table below, but for this section we are going to highlight some great chemicals. From the Oberk Slick Shoes, Nextzett Lotus Ultra Textil Protect, 303 Ultra Suds Ceramic Wash, to the Optimum Ultra Ceramic Seal, you have something to care for almost any surface around your vehicle. If you are buying for that detailer who has many different products, grabbing a new release is a safe way to pick up something they don’t already have.

SEMA 2023 Releases

Rupes BigFoot iBrid HLR15 Kit

This compact, yet high-powered tool seamlessly combines the power you want with the freedom and maneuverability of Rupes iBrid battery units. Rupes did not simply add a battery to their existing units, they hit the drawing board and built this tool completely from the ground up. The Rupes iBrid HLR units boast a more compact form, simplifying handling and maneuverability during operation. The improved design also places a strong emphasis on vibration reduction, delivering a smoother and more comfortable experience that ensures precision and control throughout any polishing step. While released at SEMA 2023, this unit is not expected to be in stock until February 2024. We are however accepting pre-orders and this unit would be the “Rolls-Royce” of detailing gifts this year.

Koch Chemie Gentle Snow Foam X-Mas

Dirt, grime, tar and other heavy contamination buildup is inevitable unless you park your car in a garage and never take it out for a spin, making a high-quality shampoo incredibly important. The Koch Chemie Gentle Snow Foam X-Mas, takes everything we love in the original Gentle Snow Foam and adds in an amazing holiday smell. This scent smells like warm cider on a cold day and reminds us of sitting around a fire during winter months. It is warm and spicy, adding that something extra to your wash process. With that said, this product was extremely popular and unfortunately has already sold out. We do however still have the original Gentle Snow Foam which is a fantastic shampoo.

Dynabrade Renny Doyle Series DB8 Polisher

Dynabrade paired up with the detailing mind of Renny Doyle of Detailing Success to bring you a high-quality polisher. This unit was born out of the thought that Renny wanted something to cut like a rotary unit, but to finish like a dual action polisher. It is a forced rotation unit with some cool ergonomic features like a swiveled power cord. If your detailer is in need of a new polisher or is a fan of Renny, the Dynabrade DB8 makes an incredible gift this holiday season.

Ceramic Coatings

Ceramic Coatings have become the gold standard in protection if you are striving for durability. Some of our most popular coatings are the Gyeon MOHS Evo, Gtechniq EXO v5 and the Aquatek Select, all of which provide you with long lasting protection and insane gloss. Even if you are looking for coating care items, we have a large coatings section to help you reach for a great gift.
