Gifts for Commuters Who Drive
1. Windshield Suction Mount - $39.99
For the one that's always on the road, the Windshield Suction Mount is a commuter gift sure to add a win to your gift-giving score sheet. The highly adjustable arm will get your phone in the perfect spot, while being secured with the strong suction pad. Attaching the phone is easy with the RokLock ready to go.
This is one of the best gifts for people who drive a lot. Whether it be long trips or just a daily commute, this mount is perfect for staying connected. Your gift recipient will enjoy the convenience of being able to use their phone hands-free while driving. They can listen to music, make calls, and keep an eye on GPS directions without having to take their eyes off the road.
2. ROKFORM Magnetic Car Dash Mount - $19.99
Many of the cases come with a Magnetic Mount, which is why people quickly realize it’s a great idea to add another to their daily routine, including driving. Make sure you’re never without a hands-free experience when you’re driving kids to and from soccer, or using the navigation to get to that next sales call. This would be one of the best commuter gadgets to gift someone.
We think the RokForm Magnetic Car Dash Mount is among the best gifts for long commutes in particular, because there surely isn't one where a driver doesn't feel inclined to pick up their phone at some point. This present keeps things safer and more convenient.
3. AUTOSEAL West Loop Travel Mug- $20.99
For those who spend some serious time in the car, taking a drink to go is pretty much a MUST. The AUTOSEAL West Loop is spill proof and will stay “piping hot for hours” for those of us who like to sip and not chug. If you know someone that struggles with coffee spills while driving, this commuter gift seems like a no brainer.
The AUTOSEAL West Loop also has a one-handed operation, making it easy to open and close while driving. No mess, no worries! This thermos is made of stainless steel so it’s well insulated and will keep drinks hot or cold for hours. Best of all? It's super cost-effective. Gift the AUTOSEAL West Loop and you’ll have plenty of funds left over for iced lattes!
4. Car Kick Mats with Storage Pockets - $10.95
For less than $11, this backseat pocket storage will get all that junk off the ground and seats and into a nicely stored space. These are perfect gifts for driving when winter weather comes and shoes are snowy and dirtier than normal.
Kick mats aren't just great gifts for drivers - they're great gifts for drivers with passengers. These backseat pocket storage solutions are perfect for storing devices, wallets, books and more. They come with an adjustable strap that easily fits onto the headrest of almost any vehicle, making them easy to install and very versatile.
5. Black Rubber Vent - $5.50
If you have that one friend who’s car isn’t giving off a great fragrance, the Black Rubber Vent Clip from Bath & Body Works is the inexpensive and easy commuter gift to look for. Don’t let that odor get in between your friendship.
This item belongs on our list of gifts for people who drive a lot because it will freshen up any car interior in a matter of moments.

The clip attaches to any car vent and the scent is released every time the fan kicks on.
6. BLACK+DECKER Handheld Vacuum - $43.99
Although it's a bit more expensive, the BLACK+DECKER Handheld Vacuum cleaner can be considered one of the most useful gifts for commuters who drive with kids in the back seat. This compact machine is designed to reach all the nooks and crannies of vehicle interiors, keeping kids’ snacks and cereal crumbs from taking over. The strong suction power of this device makes it suitable for basic vacuuming tasks around the home as well, so your friend can get more out of it than the average car vacuum cleaner.
7. Drop Stop - The Original Patented Car Seat Gap Filler - $24.99
If you're looking for gifts for people who drive a lot, check out the drop stop. The Drop Stop prevents items like food and phones from dropping into gaps, which saves drivers the hassle of cleanup or searching for lost items between the seats.

Plug it into your vehicle's standard cigarette lighter and enjoy the comfort of a warm seat while driving in cold winter weather. The temperature is adjustable so your friend can dial it up or down to suit their preferences.
9. Car Diffuser Essential Oil Humidifier - $15.99
Instead of a car mirror air freshener, why not give your friend this essential oil humidifier? It's a great gift for car owners who like to keep their car smelling fresh but don't want the distraction of a cardboard pine tree dangling on their rear view mirror. Instead of cheap synthetic fragrances, this humidifier provides a steady mist of essential oils. Its ease of use and adjustable airflow settings make it one of the best car gifts for drivers who enjoy a sweet-smelling ride.
10. NOCO Jump Starter Box - $99.95
There's nothing worse than being stranded with a dead battery, which is why the NOCO Jump Starter Box is a great choice if you're looking for car driver gifts.
