    1. A magnetic phone mount that's so discreet, it'll look like part of your car. Since it's round, your phone will get a full range of motion when you're using it.

    Amazon / Via, May Ning/BuzzFeed

    It comes with a metal plate and a phone mount. I love this little set because I don't have to fiddle around with a clamp every time I get in my car. I can just pop my phone on it and go. Plus, my car has weirdly-shaped vents and not a lot of space around the nav system for one of those bulky extenders. The ball blends in perfectly and even kind of looks it's meant to be there. I love that I can adjust the angle, so I can always see the map when I'm using it (since I don't know how to get anywhere without the help of Google Maps).

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $38.99.

    2. This collapsible trunk organizer that's great for storing all the random junk in your car — and you can even use it to bring in groceries in a single trip. It has plenty of pockets and compartments, so it'll save you space while keeping everything in order.

    My trunk is always full of random junk and this organizer helps me sort the stuff I kind of always keep in there vs. what I'm actually transporting around. There are a ton of pockets, which make it easy for me to keep some extra bags and blankets on hand, without having to dig for them. It's also waterproof, so I can even store wet umbrellas and jackets in it.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $39.97. Available in two sizes and four colours.

    3. A memory foam cushion that'll make driving a little more comfortable on your tush. It even has a handy pocket on the front where you can store your phone or wallet, so you won't have to jam it between your legs.

    4. A headlight cleaning kit that'll help you clear up those foggy covers (instead of spending big bucks to replace them). It'll make your car look brand new and actually protect your headlights from yellowing.

    It comes with a cleaning solution, protective coating, drill attachment, wool and sanding pads, and two finishing discs. Make sure to pick up a drill, if you don't already have one.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $25.91.

    5. A pair of microfibre gloves that'll help you wipe off all the dust in your car (how does it always get SO dusty, though?). They'll give you more control than a brush and they're more convenient than keeping a big ol' tub of wipes in your glove compartment.

    Amazon / Via, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "These gloves are honestly so much fun to use. Sometimes I go looking for things to dust. I can quickly wipe down large surfaces like counters, cupboards or tables or use them on smaller or more fragile items like the picture frames or perfume bottles, without worrying about breaking them. I usually keep one near my desk to wipe down my computer screen and desk, because it gets pretty dusty in my room. I love that I can just toss them in the wash when they start to look a little grungy."—Kaysey Davis

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $20.99.

    6. And a handheld vacuum that'll help you get into all the little crevices between and around your seats (AKA the land of the crumbs and loose change). You won't have to bust out an extension cord, since it's wireless and rechargeable.

    It comes with a brush attachment that's great for cleaning upholstery.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $69.98.

    7. A blinged-out steering wheel cover, because it never hurts to have a little sparkle in your life. It'll help your protect your steering wheel from wear and tear, and provide some temperature control in the hottest and coldest months.

    8. A trio of car fresheners that'll keep your ride smelling like it just came out of the dealership. It'll actually remove odours (instead of just covering them up), and you can adjust the strength of the scent with the built-in dial.

    May Ning/BuzzFeed

    These air fresheners smell bomb and they clip right onto your air vents. I like the dial because sometimes I prefer a more subtle scent. They're literally so good at removing odor that I didn't even notice a moldy orange under my seat (that's on me though).

    Get them from Amazon Canada for $7.49+.

    9. A set of car LED lights that'll make night drives a little more magical. They have a built-in sensor that'll sync to your music and turn your car into the coolest whip on the block.

    I used to drive a 2008 Nissan Rogue and this gadget was such a lifesaver for those long, boring drives. My car didn't even have a USB port, so I couldn't charge my phone while driving, either. And a fun little feature about this product is that it lights up, so you can see it better at night.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $21.89.

    13. This brilliant tray that'll attach to your steering wheel so you can eat or work when your car is parked. One side is meant for eating (it has a cupholder!), while the other side is flatter and will hold your laptop and a pen.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $21.22.

    14. This windshield cover that'll make heading out so much easier in the winter and protect the inside of your car from UV damage in the summer. It'll also cover your side mirrors and it shuts tight with Velcro, so you won't have to worry about it blowing away.

    21. A pair of blind spot mirrors that'll help you see a wider range of traffic if you're a new (or cautious) driver. They can rotate around, so you can adjust them if you share a car with somebody or if you need help with parallel parking.
