A Mother’s Day Gift Guide for a Mom on The Go

Between work, running errands, and shuffling kids to and from school and practice, moms have very little time to think about their vehicles.  Why not lend mom a helping hand this Mother’s Day? From vehicle maintenance to detailing, to accessories, we have put together a list of gifts that are perfect for the mom on the go.

  1. Vehicle Maintenance

Mom is busy. Ask her if there are any maintenance items that she has been putting off. Does she need an oil change, an alignment or tire rotation? When is the last time her vehicle had a tune up? Bring her car down to Virginia Auto Service and we’ll help you take care of it.

  1. Car Wash

If she is all caught up on vehicle maintenance, consider washing her car. You could bring it to a professional car wash, or do it yourself. If you choose to do it yourself, make sure you do so in the shade and only use products made specifically for washing cars, and don’t forget to do the interior. You can also consider gifting her with a basket of automotive care supplies.

  1. Detailing

If you want to splurge a little bit, you can have her vehicle detailed. Detailing is the performance of thorough cleaning, restoration, and finishing of an automobile, both inside and out, to produce a show-quality level of detail. You can often find discounted detailing services on Groupon.

  1. Make an Emergency Roadside Kit

Your mom protects you- help protect her with a roadside emergency kit! Include items such as jumper cables, a first-aid kit, a flashlight, water, blankets, etc.

  1. Bonus Features

Buy mom a new car charger, cargo organizer, cargo carrier, or even a GPS navigation system. Or upgrade her stereo system.

  1. Lifeproof Suction Mount with QuickMount

The LifeActiv Suction Mount with QuickMount keeps your mom hands free, her phone mounted and her driving record clean. Equipped with an industrial-strength suction cup, it sticks to the windshield or other smooth surfaces to keep her GPS, camera, maps and music at eye level. And, the QuickMount holds mom’s phone with a quick click, and releases with a simple twist.

  1. Decorate the Interior

Get her new, matching floor mats and seat covers in a design she would like.  You could also get her a rearview mirror charm, and sun visor.

  1. Goluk T1 Wi-Fi Dashcam

Perfectly set up for social sharing and includes a quick-access record button that can be mounted to the steering wheel or dashboard for easy recording. Great for recording accidents, and making fellow motorists internet-famous.

  1. Bluetooth Headset or Adapter

Perfect for the mom who spends a lot of time driving. A Bluetooth speaker or adapter allows her to keep both hands on the wheel while talking on the phone. If your mom has a long commute, she’ll love that she can check in while staying safe and hands-free.
