favorite gifts
for the mothers who are glued to the steering wheel during the week, and the ones who seek adventure on the open road on the weekends.

Tech and gadget obsessed

If you haven’t already gotten your mom a gift for Mother's Day, no need to fret. Amazon Prime is your friend and we’ve got some excellent suggestions that will impress your mother like no other.
We feel relaxed just thinking about a Shiatsu Back Massage Cushion. According to
A Girl’s Guide to Cars
, “This multi-use cushion has a back massage pad that’s designed to mimic the feel of human hands, plus a vibrated cushion to sit on.” This warm luxurious item can also be used at home or in the office. BRB while we go order one for ourselves. 
Does your mom jet from one important meeting to the next? Why not get her a portable LED Mirror Light that easily straps onto the front visor. She’ll be able to touch up her eyeliner or slap on some lipstick in the car and go straight to nailing her next presentation.
For less than $15, you can buy mom the Scosche Magic Mount Mobile Phone Holder for her prized possession. She’ll be able to chat hands-free on the go with strong neodymium magnets holding up her smartphone. Easy to use and adjustable, your mom just may be able to fit in a few more phone calls to her friends while running errands during the week.
If you’ve got a Type-A mom that loves to plan ahead, make sure she’s prepared when caught in an unexpected rainstorm. The Spar. Saa Inverted Umbrella with C-Shaped Handle is a best-selling inverted umbrella that folds the top wet layer into the dry layer underneath. Sounds like magic to us. 
We could cry thinking of the wonderful invention that is the Drop Stop - The Original Patented Car Seat Gap Filler. You may have seen it on “Shark Tank,” but this seat gap filler prevents food, phones, change, wallets, and everything else under the sun from falling into the unreachable unknown. For less than $20, you get a set of two to make sure your front seats are more secure than ever before. 
If your mom is a coffee lover, she’s got to have the Ember Temperature Controlled Mug. It’s leakproof, and its charging coaster lasts about three hours at a time. Perfect for
road trips
and camping, the smart mug keeps tea, coffee, soup, and even hot cocktails warm for about 10 hours. Mom can also adjust the mug’s heat settings through the phone's display or by using the Ember app.

Fun and adventure

How about some mauve Fly Racing 2022 Women's Lite Gloves? If your mom dreams of whipping around a
on the track, these lightweight and minimalist racing gloves will give her the ultimate control of the wheel, no matter what car she drives. 
Mom deserves to let down her hair and party like she just don’t care. That’s why we love the Govee LED Car Lights. These interior strip lights can display a variety of colors to match any holiday vibe or dance party theme. The Govee app makes the lights easy to control and the lights even groove on their own to the beat of whatever music is playing, thanks to a built-in music sensor.
If she hasn’t seen Ford v Ferrari, it’s time to buy her the Ford v Ferrari Ultimate Collector’s edition. The motorsport movie includes discs for Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra HD, or a digital copy that she can watch on a laptop while lounging in bed. The film is based on a 1960s true story at Le Mans, and Matt Damon and Christian Bale aren’t too bad to look at either.

So fresh, so clean, and organized

If you also binged the latest season of “Get Organized with the Home Edit” on Netflix, then you’ll be excited at the idea of a Car Care Kit. This storage solution creates a “zone” in the car for everything your mom would need to clean and spiff up her car. You can even choose a fun color scheme like hot pink to best suit her personal style.
Does your mother take pride in a spotless car exterior? Make
washing her car
more fun with  the Chemical Guys Car Wash Kit. According to
, the user-friendly kit includes, “Chemical Guys Mr. Pink Super Suds Shampoo, Superior Surface Cleanser, After Wash, Diablo Gel Wheel & Rim Cleaner, and Citrus Wash & Gloss Concentrated Car Wash. She even gets a bucket with dirt trap, a chenille microfiber wash mitt, a spray bottle, and two Miracle Dryer microfiber towels.”
When you have kids, a cordless vacuum is a must. No one wants to spend an hour picking up half-eaten Swedish Fish and Cheerios. Buy mom the BLACK+DECKER Dustbuster Handheld Vacuum to save her time and sanity. The chamber is translucent so it’s easy to see the dirt and when it's time to empty.
Bag Hooks are the best thing since sliced bread. On Amazon, you can find hooks for her purse that snap right onto the headrest. Her designer bag will conveniently hang over the front seat if she’s riding solo, and can easily be swung backward when she’s got the rest of the family in tow.
Give your mom a little zen moment in the middle of the day with Aromatherapy Diffusers. You can find cute, customized diffusers that allow you to soak an internal pad with essential oils. By clipping them on the air vents, the natural scent travels around the car instantly. Bergamot, lavender, and ylang-ylang are perfect oils to melt away any stress on Mother’s Day.
