We all have those people who are hard to shop for around the holidays. Many of them already have an overabundance of “stuff.” People are used to buying the things they want on the Internet with just a few clicks.

That’s why more people are changing their idea of holiday giving. A lot of joy can come from receiving a positive experience— like having their car be clean and spotless again.

Automotive Quality Solutions has several ideas for helping your loved ones enjoy the look of their vehicles.


AQS works with the goal of restoring a car to be as clean as the day it left the dealership. We have a variety of packages focusing on the car’s interior and exterior, including an undercarriage wash.

A gift certificate for detailing also allows people the gift of time. They can relax and enjoy a free afternoon while AQS gets in and does the dirty work.

Paint Protection and Coating

Instead of giving someone yet another gift that sits on the shelf, there’s great value in protecting and caring for one of their biggest and most important purchases by removing and preventing dings and dents on their vehicle. A gift certificate toward XPEL paint protection film or Opti-Coat Pro+ ceramic paint protection coating allows the recipient to admire the look of their car for years to come.

Repair Services

Has your family member been putting off repairs to the exterior of their car? A gift certificate can be the push they need to help them take pride in it again.

Auto Care Supplies

We have great stocking stuffers on-site for purchase. Opti-Coat Maintenance products are gifts that will last all year long. High quality microfiber towels, sponges made for auto detailing, or a wheel brush will thrill a car enthusiast as well.

If you’re willing to put in some time and elbow grease, your parents or significant other will appreciate a basket of auto care supplies along with a promise that you’ll spend a few hours this winter doing some auto upkeep for them.

Or, just watch a movie with them by the fire while AQS does it for you.
