Perfect mother's day gift ideas for the Moms who love to drive.
Not all mothers are into flowers and chocolates, as some are more into practical things such as functional accessories for their car/s. So perhaps for those who love something a bit more fun and useful for their beloved ride, maybe these items down below could be the perfect gift for a Mom on Mother's Day.
If your Mom loves her car as much as she loves you, she will probably want to protect the vehicle's interior from harmful sun rays as they can make things such as the dashboard dry and brittle.
An excellent way to protect the dashboard is with a retractable or foldable sunshade, and the best thing about them is, you can probably pick this up from most convenience stores and they're relatively inexpensive especially for those of us on a budget.
If your Mom loves takeaway coffee, then at some point, she would have come across a weird-sized takeaway cup that just won't fit correctly into a cupholder.
Well, be her hero and buy her a car cup holder expander, and all her coffee cup nightmares will go away. The best thing is, these cupholders are largely available on e-commerce platforms such as Shopee.
New Car Mats
It's amazing how a set of new car mats can transform the look and smell of a new car. If your Mom's car is old and its car mats look like they have had better days, why not get her a new set of modern car mats such as the ones from Trapo, as they are anti-slip, custom-fitted and anti-bacterial.
Trapo practically has a set of mats for every car, so it won't be hard to find one for your Mom. You can buy Trapo mats from Trapo's official website or typical online stores.
A Good Dash Cam
A good way of protecting your Mom on the road is to install a good dashcam in her car. Give your Mom some added peace of mind this Mother's Day by setting up a little dashcam in her vehicle. With this by her side, she won't have to worry about issues like insurance fraud, hit-and-runs, or confrontations with angry motorists.
The Thinkware F800 Pro dash cam would be an excellent choice for your Mom as it's got 1080 full HD resolution which means you will have clear and detailed recordings of everything.
It also has an enhancement sensor that helps with footage from a low-light environment.
Smartphone Car Mount
Most Moms these days have phones with many features that allow them to be turned into a sat nav or speakerphone for taking calls in the car.
While these features are good, some Moms might still be stuck in the past and tend to place their phones in unsecured locations somewhere in the cockpit of the car.
Get her a car phone mount as it is designed to hold her device in the optimum position for safe viewing of the screen while driving. They often attach to your air conditioning vent or have a rubber suction pad for attaching to the windscreen.
When purchasing a car phone holder, don't just go for the cheapest option as these can often be flimsy and insecure, which could damage your phone. A unit such as Belkin's universal car phone mount would be a good choice for your Mom as the extendable arms firmly cradle your phone, while the mount adheres securely to your windshield or dashboard.
Plus, with the ability to tilt and rotate the cradle, it's easy to find the perfect viewing angle for navigation.
