Gifts for Mother’s Day (with an auto twist)

Mother's Day 2013Sunday, May 12th is fast approaching, and in case you forgot or didn’t know, this date is Mother’s Day 2013, and many of us continue to search for that perfect gift.

Well, that’s where we can help. Something thoughtful, caring – helpful even? If you think about it, chances are that your mom spends many hours in her car.

So, what could be more loving than an ‘auto gift’; something for her and her vehicle? Makes sense, right? To save you time, here are my top auto gifts that show your mom how much you car-e.

A car travel mug for mom

Travel mug

Those commuter miles in the car can be tiring, so help keep mom on the go with this charming travel mug. A 16 ounce cup with lid and sleeve like this looks stylish and keeps her beverage warm. Or why not get a personalized one: Soccer Mom or Tired Mom in need of Caffeine?

Black and Decker Flex Auto Vac

Flex auto vac

When it comes to car vacuums, this sucks up the competition, along with crumbs, leaves, and just about anything in its path. A flexible hose reaches the tightest places, and the 12v plug gives it plenty of power around the cabin. Buy this for mom and you won’t have to feel so guilty the next time you leave a trail of potato chips along the back seat of her car!

CommuteMate CellCup Holder

CommuteMate CellCup Holder

“Where are my sunglasses… I can’t find my phone… where did you hide my pen…” are things often heard coming out of mom’s car up and down the country. Well with the CommuteMat CellCup, mom’s days of searching around her auto for lost items can be over. Neatly fitting in to the vehicle’s cup holder, it can store cell phones, note pads, pens, etc. Just don’t leave the car keys in there.

Yankee Car Jars

Yankee Candle Pink Sands

Mom might be stuck in her auto on the highway, but that doesn’t mean she can’t imagine an exotic island escape. Car Jars from Yankee Candle help to make that experience smell like reality for 2 to 4 weeks. As Yankee might say, let mom hit the road with fragrance.

Brookstone PowerCup Car Charger

Brookstone PowerCup

Like the best coffees, this will give mom’s electronic devices a boost on the go. This handy device sits snuggly in most car cup holders and can charge or run most electronic devices. Safety features include overload protection and low battery shut off, to help give mom peace of mind. I’ll take one to go please.

Auto Driving Experience

Sports car wheel

Ever wondered how mom drives when you’re not in the car with her? Often needing to be in so many places at once, yet carefully observing road speed limits – how does she do it? Well for one day she could find herself with just one place to go, the race track, hitting high speed corners and fast straights, thanks to a very thoughtful gift from you.

Driving experiences available at

But what type of race experience? The choice very much depends on the personality. Dune buggy – enjoy going off the beaten track. Stock cars – she’s a no nonsense mom. Ferrari – mom loves Italian cooking… and driving very fast.
