1. A phone holder so you can keep both hands on the wheel and still be able to see the GPS. This one works with most smartphones, lets you adjust the angle, and makes it super easy to get your phone in and out.
2. Or a magnetic phone mount that clips into your air vents allowing your phone to (basically) hang freely on the dashboard while you keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
3. A no-rinse carpet spot remover that'll get rid of those stains you thought were just a part of your car forever.
4. An adorable hanging diffuser to make your car smell like a spa on wheels. Choose from a variety of signature and seasonal scents, and get ready to impress your passengers.
5. Some lightweight and durable escape tracks in case your car decides to get trapped in the snow. I wish I'd gotten these sooner because once my car gets stuck, it's pretty adamant about...remaining stuck.
6. A set of car hooks so your bags and jackets don't have to spend the entire trip rolling around on the floor, dumping out their contents everywhere, and winding up covered in whatever grime has been hiding under your seats since the beginning of time.
7. A three-pocket folding car trunk organizer for anyone whose trunk has descended into full blown chaos. Strong Velcro keeps it secure while driving and it even folds down for easy storage when not in use.
8. A portable car desk/tray combo so eating and working in your car can actually be comfortable! Plus, do restaurants usually have recliners?? I don't think so.
9. A super comfy memory foam chair cushion that your butt and back will thank you for on long drives.
10. A tiny trashcan – it fits right in your car's cup holder so you can stop just letting your trash fall into the mysterious, unexplored depths of your vehicle.
11. A cordless vacuum to clean all of those pesky things that you can never seem to get out of your car (I'm looking at you, rock salt and beach sand).
12. A console side pocket that not only helps keep your phone and keys from falling into the dreaded space between the seats, but also includes a piggy bank for loose change, a longer pocket to hold items like your phone and wallet, AND an extra cupholder.
13. A windshield cover so you won't have to partake in everyone's favorite winter task: spending way too long standing in the cold and scraping ice and snow off of your windshield before every drive. "I just love shivering and being covered in snow every time I want to run to the store," said no one ever.
14. A blind spot mirror designed to help you merge a little more safely and keep an eye on those areas that are usually out of view.
15. A pair of pet hair-removing brushes in case your favorite passenger loves to shed all over your seats almost as much as they love to bark at the other dogs at stoplights.
16. And a quilted, water-resistant bench car seat cover to also help keep your seats from ending up covered in fur, mud, and who knows what else. Plus, it's padded and comfy for your pup which is really the most important thing.
17. A pack of six cable clips so that you don't have to choose between keeping your eyes on the road and digging for your charger that has managed to position itself just out of reach.
18. A stick-on shade to protect your eyes and keep your car nice and cool despite the scorching rays of sunshine that just won't quit.
19. An expandable hanger bar for anyone who treats their backseat more like a closet-on-wheels.
20. A pocket-sized Tile Mate that would've come in handy every time you misplaced your keys, wallet, or anything else you tend to lose. Just attach it to the item of your choice, and the next time you can't find it, you'll be able to use the Tile app on your smartphone to make your missing object ring until you track it down!
21. A tough, extendable snow brush with a squeegee and ice scraper to quickly break through the iceberg that has somehow appeared on your windshield overnight.
22. A heated seat cushion to make driving in cold weather less painful. It even has two heat settings so you can adjust it to your preferred level of toasty.
23. A game-changing car seat organizer complete with all the pockets you need to securely hold a tablet, cups, snacks, and anything else you might need on a road trip (probably just more snacks, but you do you).
24. A sleek two USB car charger that fits right into your cigarette lighter, because at this point, at least 50% of a car's appeal is as a giant traveling phone-charging device.
25. A set of all-season rubber floor mats so all of that snow, salt, and filth that inevitably finds its way inside your car doesn't ruin the floors.
26. A leak-proof trash can that easily straps to your center armrest OR around your headrest, has a rubber lid to keep trash covered, AND includes pockets for extra storage. Now the evidence of your late night fast food detour is out of sight and out of mind, instead of tumbling around the backseat for the next six months.
27. A tissue dispenser for your sun visors to help you combat the sniffles on the go. Plus, you'll be able to dispose of them in that handy dandy trash can listed *above*.
28. An auxiliary cable in case that one you've been using since high school is at that point in its lifecycle where it has to be positioned just so, or else it crackles, pops, and cuts out constantly while you're just trying to vibe to your music.
29. A travel road kit so that if disaster strikes unexpectedly, you'll be prepared with all the emergency essentials.
30. A Bluetooth car adapter in case your older car doesn't have an auxillary hookup or if you just wanna to go cord-free when listening to music or making calls.
31. A set of groovy interior LED car lights for that extra amount of razzle dazzle when driving at night.
32. A keychain car escape tool that can cut through seat belts and break car windows because, even though you hopefully never need it, it's always better to be prepared.
33. A huge, incredibly warm military wool blanket you can keep in the trunk in case of emergency. It also makes a great seat cover if you're riding with a pet, AND you'll always be prepared for a spontaneous picnic.
34. An easy-to-use digital tire inflator for the moment when your car decides to improve your day with that little dinging sound telling you your tire pressure is low. Fortunately, this thing plugs right into your car outlet and even includes attachments to inflate bike tires, air mattresses, balls, balloons, you name it!
35. A car windshield sunshade to keep your steering wheel from inflicting third-degree burns on your poor, innocent hands after your car's been parked in the sun for hours.
36. A 3D-printed clip-on sauce holder you can attach to your vents to make on-the-go meals a lot more convenient.
37. A replacement air filter because, if yours looks anything like this one, it's probably time for a change.
38. A scratch remover so the next time your neighbor in the parking lot isn't the most graceful of drivers, you won't have to spend a small fortune on a minor facelift.
Promising review: "Super impressed with this product. I’m always skeptical of things like this that say they’ll perfectly fix scratches. I was worried because I randomly found three visible scratches on my front bumper. I could feel the scratch with my hand so I figured it was too deep. Well this product totally fixed it. As I was drying off the product I literally couldn’t even tell where the scratches were. Would totally recommend trying this first before anything else. Wish I took a before and after but wasn’t expecting it to be good enough for one." –Tom V Weekes

39. A set of Drop Stop gap fillers to prevent your phone from falling into the abyss that is the space between your seat and the console. Plus, you'll never have to surrender a french fry (or a handful of french fries) to the gap ever again!
This "As Seen On TV" product even fits around your seat belts and moves with the seats if you adjust them!
Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize it would be one of my most favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat!" —Tessa Forbes
Get a pack of two from Amazon for $24.99.
40. A storage net barrier for anyone with a large and in-charge fur baby that loves nothing more than being large and in-charge where they're not supposed to be: the driver's seat. This'll stop your pup from blocking your view, plus provide some extra storage for groceries and on-the-go essentials.
Promising review: "My family goes on the road for numerous trips over the course of a year and last year we got a new puppy who LOVES the car. This past summer, we were about to go on a 16-hour drive and needed a solution so that he wouldn't decide to jump and startle whoever was driving. Enter this little gem. The net is a high-quality item for the price. The top-end opens so it's not just a barrier, but a typical cargo net so you get even more storage for your vehicle while adding a layer of safety." —Daigs
Get it from Amazon for $15.80 (be sure to clip the coupon before checkout to save an extra 10%).
41. A cupholder adapter because your ginormous Hydro Flask water bottle and Yeti coffee tumbler deserve a place to call home that *isn't* the floor of your car where they spill, rattle, and roll into the never-ending abyss that is the underside of your passenger seat.
Wine & Whiskey Co. is a Texas-based Etsy shop selling a wide range of adorable phone cases and T-shirts, plus genius car accessories (obvi).
Promising review: "Love it. Perfectly holds my 40-ounce Hydro Flask. No more rolling around the truck cab. Arrived quickly and works as described." —Jason J. Mease
42. A handy cleaning putty so you don't have to keep paying the big bucks whenever your ride is in need of some detailing. This lil' gizmo can work its way into all of nooks and crannies of your car to pick up dirt, dust, and debris, then leave your setup looking spotless.
