Do you have a Volkswagen fan on your holiday shopping list? Check out the array of toys, clothing and accessories at Nanaimo’s Harbourview Volkswagen!

Beetle on over for that perfect Christmas gift

Plenty of options in Nanaimo for the Volkswagen enthusiast in your life

Whether you drive a vintage Volkswagen Bug or regularly load yourself and the kids into a Touareg, you likely feel a strong connection to your vehicle.

“From our newest Volkswagen drivers to longtime enthusiasts, they’re just enthusiastic, passionate people and they’re a very loyal bunch,” says Andrew Morrison, the marketing, IT and logistics manager at Harbourview Volkswagen in Nanaimo, an automotive fixture in the city for 35 years. “There’s some families we work with who have been coming here for three generations.”

If you’ve got just such a person on your Christmas list, check out the latest gear in the Volkswagen Collection, a selection of merchandise that’s sure to bring a smile from the VW fan in your life.

  1. Get your Beetle on. The Holiday Collection features everything from Beetle tree ornaments and barbecue grill paddles to VW van espresso cups, mugs and even coloured patio lights!
  2. Wear your heart on your sleeves. From customized Volkswagen T-shirts to hats, toques and more, it’s easy to find wearable examples of your favourite vehicle make. As Morrison says, “Volkswagen owners love being able to show off the uniqueness of the brand through clothing or a hat or even an ugly sweater.”
  3. Keep it in the car. If branded accessories are your thing, there’s plenty of options available, from roll-up blankets and license plate holders, to roadside emergency kits, cell phone holders and much more. Stop by Harbourview to see what’s in stock and what’s available by Christmas.
  4. Save it for a rainy (or snowy) day. If you’re unsure about what to get your special person, you can always present them with a gift certificate for the dealership and let them choose for themselves.

Don’t forget, winter’s still coming

With fall and winter weather rather unpredictable in the mid-Island, it’s important that you’re prepared for any conditions on the roads. If you’ve been putting off getting those winter or all-season tires for your vehicle, the friendly staff at Harbourview invite you to drop by for a coffee and a quote on a set of four tires. Various packages are available now – just ask!

Even if you’re in the neighbourhood and curious about the latest Volkswagen models, or are coming by to pick up that gift for a special someone, stop in, enjoy a latte, get in the Christmas spirit and receive a free car wash while you’re there.
