    1. A windshield cover to protect your car from the stormy weather ahead. It'll also get you to work on time because you won't be scraping ice and snow off your windshield!

    2. A polymer compound grip strip you can pop on your dashboard to grab and hold onto your smartphone, sunglasses, pens, keys and pretty much anything else you can think of.

    3. A car washing mitt made of microfiber material that'll pick up dirt, soak up suds, and leave a smooth finish — all without leaving behind a scratch.

    4. A non-slip, orthopedic memory foam cushion that'll promote healthy posture so anyone who suffers back or tailbone pain while driving can feel instant relief.

    5. A console side pocket with a piggy bank for putting loose change (great for tolls and parking) and a longer pocket trailing behind for your keys, phone, and wallet. Did I mention it also has a cupholder?!

    6. A collapsible car trunk organizer to neatly store all the things you keep in your car. It has non-slip bottom strips so your valuables don't go flying about in the backseat while you're driving.

    7. A (3D printed!) clip-on sauce holder for your air vent so you can have optimal snacking abilities when you can't wait to dig into those fresh and hot nuggets! The "Dip-lock" design allows any size sauce to sit comfortably and snug so as to not fall out.

    8. A compact trash bin that'll hang conveniently nearby so you can keep your car clean and tidy day-to-day — and especially for longer car rides or trips!

    9. A 2.5-gallon wet and dry vacuum perfect for those hard-to-reach spots between seat cushions and inside air vents.

    10. A portable car jump starter, phone charger, and battery booster all rolled into one that'll come in handy when you need it the most. It has up to 20 jumpstarts and up to four smartphone full battery cycles on a single charge!

    11. A collection of small collapsible cart bags you'll use while shopping to separate categories of food. Then they go straight from the cart to the car!

    12. A blind spot mirror perfect for catching those out-of-view spots that can often get you into sticky situations if unchecked.

    13. An essential oil diffuser to clip on your car vent; simply apply essential oil to the felt pad inside the locket for the new car smell of your dreams.

    14. A compact digital tire gauge with a digital LED display so you can accurately assess your car's tire pressure, day or night.

    15. A natural air-purifying bag that will eliminate unwanted odors from your car without adding any artificial scents that often induce headaches.

    16. A pair of pet hair–removing brushes for the person with a furry friend who likes to roll around the seats as if it were their own car.

    17. A set of seat gap fillers so when you inevitably drop your phone between the seat and the center console you won't have to stick your arm down the dark crevice of doom and despair to find it.

    18. A Dwight Schrute or Jim Halpert car freshener, because you just can't beet the smell of a fresh car on your way to the office.

    19. A set of car hooks that will keep your purse, grocery bags, and jackets off the floor.

    20. A keychain car escape tool able to both cut your seat belt and break your car window in emergency situations where you'll need to get out of your car as quickly and safely as possible.

    21. A restorative headlight cleaning kit to make your car look so shiny and new, people will think you just drove it off the lot.
