    It is the time of year once again when we are celebrating the existence of our beloved mothers. We think that the cake is a staple. But you can step it up a notch by giving a personalized gift for mom.

    We have listed down 11 gift ideas for car-loving moms. It isn’t easy to think of a great gift for her. But we can imagine what she might need while being behind the wheel.

    Driving moms usually treat their cars as their second abode. Giving her a gift that compliments her experience in that second home will make her happy. Let us stay away from traditional gifts and try something more useful and practical.

    Before deciding on what to buy, you should think of her personality and her habits. You should also look at her car. What can be added or enhanced in her car?

    While looking at her vehicle, you might discover some of her unsung wishes. You might see that her floor mats or seat covers need replacing. You might also notice that her car interior needs some overhaul.

    If you have a fashionista mom, she might be wearing heels while driving. Just thinking about it is already painful. Give her a pair of loafers that will match her usual attire. 

    Tell her that she can stash it in the car and wear it just for driving. Loafers are recommended for driving moms because it is easy to wear, lightweight, and comfortable for driving.

    If your mom is always on-the-go, she might sometimes forget to give the car a good wash. If you notice that her car is really dusty and dirty, maybe it is time to bring it to the nearest car wash for some cleaning, waxing, and detailing.

    Look how happy she will be when the car’s paint returns to its original shiny state. She will definitely appreciate the fresh smell of her clean interiors.

    If your mom is a coffee lover, then you should definitely give her a car coffee maker and cup holder. Usually, it fits in a 12-volt socket and very easy to use.

    She can make coffee by just filling it with espresso coffee and water, pressing the buttons, and waiting for a couple of minutes. Voila! Coffee in an instant. She can also use it at home or in the office.

    Jewelry Lover

    Most moms love jewelry. But if you have a car/jewelry loving mom, you might want to give her Fordite jewelry. 

    Fordite or Motor Agate is a stone that is derived from hardened deposits of paint. These can be obtained from old car frames in car factories. The beautiful patterns are really unique.

    If you have a mom that is always prepared, you should think about giving her a pocket knife or a Swiss army knife. It can be easily stashed in the glove box.

    Most of these pocket Swiss army knives can be used in a variety of situations. You might be surprised that it has a toothpick, screwdriver, key ring, reamer, bottle opener, and tweezers.

    This next gift idea is best for those who have traveler moms. You can make her feel like she is in the plane by giving her an airline tray that is attachable (and also detachable) in the steering wheel.

    This can be a perfect holder for her notebook or laptop for when she needs to jot down or work on something. It has a cup holder and a small tray for munchies. 

    It can also fit into the back seat. It can hold the kids’ food and drinks while mommy is driving. It can also come in handy on the drive-in movie nights!

    Each and every one of us has a different kind of mom. And some moms like to have their stuff personalized. One perfect gift for her is a personalized plate. 

    You can choose whatever design you like according to her personality. It is much better to give her a voucher so she can freely choose the design she likes. However, there are varying rules and regulations from state to state regarding these customized plates.

    Your mom could be the one who is afraid to be hungry. She likes to keep ready to eat food in the car. Why don’t you give her a food canister that fits perfectly into the cup holder?

    That way she would not be looking from corner to corner. You just fill it with her favorite snacks, put it in the cup holder, and it is ready to go. Make sure that it has a lid so the food stays fresh and wash it once it is empty. 

    The Classic
