Automotive Gifts for Mother’s Day

With four spiral balls that can effectively simulate a human massage therapist, this is an excellent gift if you want to make sure your mom can drive safely and pleasantly wherever she is going.
Car Visor Vanity Mirror
For those whose moms are daily commuters, she may run into a time or two where freshening up in the car is the only option. But, while most new cars have all the bells and whistles when it comes to Bluetooth setups, navigation and infotainment systems, the visor mirror still leaves something to be desired. And in low-light conditions, it can be hard to get a good look at oneself, which is why mom will appreciate this clip-on visor mirror with LED vanity lights. With 60 LED lights and three different light modes, there is a setting for every type of lighting situation in the car. And for just $39.99, your mom will get two of these mirrors — one for each visor — and two charger cables.
Cordless Handheld Vacuum
Every car gets dirty no matter how often or how little it gets used. So when it comes to getting a car wash and getting rid of any dirt and dust, a quality handheld vacuum that mom can keep in the car is a great way to help her with any DIY car cleaning she may do. This cordless vacuum by Black+Decker works on any surface of her car’s interior, so whether she has cloth, vinyl, or leather seats, your mom will be able to keep her car neat.

Headrest Hanger Holder Hook
Whether it’s a grocery bag, dry cleaning, luggage or anything else, one of the biggest issues in vehicles is the lack of places to hang something. Unless you have these awesome headrest hanger hooks that latch onto the headrest and can give mom extra storage options for a bag, clothes, or any other item that needs to stay up off the ground. And at just $7.99, you can get mom a batch of these that she can repeatedly use for quick and convenient storage.
Multipurpose Navigator for Off-Grid Guidance
If your mom is adventurous and likes to hit the open road to visit unique and fun places that might be a little bit off the beaten path, this multipurpose navigator by Garmin is a great choice for her. This is especially true if she has an older vehicle or one without an upgraded infotainment or navigation system. The 7-inch touchscreen is bright, easy to use, and can even go handheld to help her stay on course. It’s preloaded with maps and points of interest, so she won’t need a cell signal to always know where she is and where to go. It also comes with communication features like text messaging, SOS messaging, and up-to-date weather forecasts. And while this is a pricey gift at $694.97, it is well worth the cost to make sure she is safe wherever her adventures take her next.

For $129, this mug comes with a touch display screen that gives a temperature readout and can be charged with a standard USB Type-C charger. It even gets hot enough to heat liquids from room temperature, making it a perfect gift no matter her hot beverage of choice.
Universal Car Mount Phone Holder
While a full-on GPS can cost a couple of hundred extra dollars, your mom may have a smartphone on hand already with a map feature already on it. So with this universal car mount phone holder, you can give her the joy of having a GPS in her vehicle without spending hundreds to thousands on a new device or upgrading the system. This phone mount is just $22.95 and features an adjustable telescoping arm that she can easily move to the perfect position. The strong suction cup will stick to the dashboard, center console, or any other surface to help give her vehicle a GPS and hands-free calling on the road without needing a Bluetooth connection, no matter how old her vehicle is.
