It's that time of year again when we start to wonder how to indulge those special car-loving women in our lives. It doesn't matter whether you're shopping for your wife, mother, or daughter; sister, cousin, or aunt, why not pamper her car -- or pamper HER while she's in her car? We've gathered this collection of fun and luxurious gift ideas to help you ensure her holiday happiness. We're warning you, most of these great gifts glitter!


Porsche-911-keychain Does your car-loving lady like to drive fast, or does she just wish she could? Indulge her sporty tastes with gorgeous Swarovski-encrusted Porsche accessories, from handbags, clothing and sunglasses to this elegant leather-and-stainless-steel 911 keychain.  Its distinctive Porsche lettering features a small crystal on the '1' which perfectly matches the lovely Swarovski 911 necklace  and bracelet.

Chicbuds Genuine sparkling Swarovski crystals transform these simple earphones into true ear candy in five delectable colors including Sour Apple, Watermelon, Grape, Marshmallow, or Blueberry to complement and embellish any color theme. The earbuds fit comfortably and snugly in the ears and produce clear, quality sound from mp3 players, iPods, computers, and more! Their retractable cord device keeps cords from getting tangled up and busy women from becoming frustrated, while a clip attached to the retractor secures the earphones to a pocket, collar, or lapel, making it easy to go for a run and not worry about them falling out or bouncing around.

Danger-zones  On average, 40,000 people die in vehicle collisions each year! We know you want her to be safe wherever she drives in her car, so why not give your lady a new iPhone app called DangerZones?  Available for just $1.99, the app is a real eye-opener for anyone who drives a car. DangerZones uses Google Maps to pinpoint over 200,000 vehicle fatality locations across the United States to help drivers see prior vehicle collisions and fatality locations in their neighborhoods and along their commutes. Five years of motor vehicle fatality data, easy-on-the-eyes statistics, and graphics are expertly packaged to help your lady better understand everyday risks, federal and state laws, the worst days and times to be on the road, and more.
