Askpattylogo_gift Mother's day is almost here and we want to give you some of the best options out there for gifts for those fabulous women who raised us! I suppose a purse or a spa day would be better than a set of new tires, but I think you'll be surprised when we show you how many cool automotive items there are that would make perfect gifts!

cards Ladies. After all, a girl’s gotta shop!

Grantpurple Check out this purple steering wheel. A steering wheel in and of itself isn’t all that much to be excited about, but a pretty shiny purple one? That’s worth looking into. This Grant Fibertech Wheel has a high-gloss purple grip, textured fiber accents and polished aluminum spokes.

Minxypinksteering2Since you are shopping in the sterring wheel department, why not get a groovy cover to go with it?  Most steering wheel covers are ugly, let’s face it. Who wants some geriatric-looking nubby rubber on their wheel? Hmmm… might be a nice hand massager while waiting in traffic… Well, instead, opt for style! These pink MINXY steering wheel and seatbelt covers are adorable and will fit most vehicles. Check out the entire line of MINXY interior pieces at Fast Chick

Belt There are other car-type belts out there but this one has panache and funky style add to the equation.  Be the first to own it! The Tattoo Bottle Cap Belt is all about attitude and looking good. It is made from recycled rubber and bottle caps with creative tatoo art. The belt features an automotive seat belt buckle with three snaps for micro-adjusting your belt, plus the buckle snaps off so that you can easily glide your belt through smaller belt loops. Mom has never been so ultra-hip!

VwpatchWhat about a cute little car patch for your friend's favorite old jeans or a hippy style denim purse? We love this little pink VW patch made in honor of the pink Barbie Bug coming out. A full-size Barbie bug? That is a gift all on it's own!

Check back for next week's installment and some great Mother's Day gift ideas!
