Seasons greetings... Merry Christmas to all those in the Tesla community! Hopefully, you've been treated to some great gifts under the Christmas tree this morning. Our Tesla family is gathered together as well enjoying a sunny holiday morning here in South Florida. Whether you received a nerdy Christmas sweater or a dorky dreidel (yeah, I got one) this holiday season, let's face it — what you really wanted was something for your Tesla.

Sure, you got two awesome new Easter Eggs from Elon Musk. But we know you were really hoping for software update v8.1. Or, even better — a new Tesla Supercharger located minutes from your house. But, no dice. Well... there are always some fun things you can do to treat your Tesla. For one, you should treat your Tesla to a deluxe car wash and take some family photos — it is a member of your family after all. Or, perhaps... you can get few fun accessories for it.

It turns out that Alex Guberman, who has his own virtual Tesla empire, just released a video with some of our products (thank you Alex!) as great gifts to treat your Tesla Model S. Alex runs two popular Tesla Facebook groups, Tesla Model S Owners Club and Tesla Model 3 Owners Club, totaling over 12,000 members. Check out Alex's Tesla News in 60 seconds weekly segment on his Everything Tesla YouTube channel. He's such a fan that he's already on his third Tesla. His top five Tesla accessory picks? The center console insert, cubby compartment, coat hooks, caliper covers, and Getting Ready for Model 3 book.

Okay... what's the ultimate Tesla gift? Maybe it's time to head over to the Tesla store and buy your wife (or husband for that matter) their own Tesla! Check out this classic Christmas ad from the Electric Vehicle Association of America that appeared in the American Journal of Surgery back in 1912. The ad says that the, "cost of an Electric is decidedly moderate when you consider its lasting, satisfactory service. Maintenance expense and cost of power is far lower than that for other types of cars. Before you buy any car – consider the Electric." Indeed, some things never change.

In any event, we wanted to send a message of peace and blessings to all those across the entire Tesla community worldwide. Thanks for your continuing support, we're looking forward to an exciting year in 2017! Looking back at our amazing experience during the Tesla Model 3 launch event earlier this year, we're forecasting 2017 as the breakthrough year for Tesla Motors. We're looking forward to keeping you updated on progress.
