A cheap but practical gift is a jug of low temperature windshield washer fluid. Look for a temperature that is -25 or -30 or lower. It costs less than $5.

There are some days when the temperature and humidity are just right to cause the windshield to glaze over when driving up Big or Little Cottonwood Canyon. And the "blue stuff" that's in the reservoir will not defrost the windshield.

You might want to buy a turkey baster too. Use it to suck the blue stuff out of the reservoir and replace it with the low temperature fluid.

There are several brands of low temperature windshield fluid. They are various colors, but none are blue. Stick a bow on the jug and it's wrapped!
