As promised, today we aren’t discussing car gadgets that are practical. These gadgets won’t save you if you’re stranded on the side of the road, they won’t help you if you’re caught in a blizzard, and they will be of no help to you if you’ve run out of gas in the middle of nowhere. But they are pretty sick. Let’s get started!
Mini Fridge ($49.99, shop here)
If you’re a frequent road tripper, then you’ve got to have a mini fridge in your car to keep sodas and energy drinks crisp. This bad boy holds (6) cans and the shelf is removable to make some room if you’re carrying more uniquely shaped items like cosmetics, food, or even skincare products. You can connect this fridge to a 12V car power supply, you won’t hear a loud humming thanks to quiet technology, and it’s environmentally friendly.
Heated Car Seat Covers ($36.99, shop here)
You don’t know true luxury if you’ve never experienced heated car seats. Your booty and back will thank you all winter long, and frankly, we would be lying if we said we didn’t like heated seats for the occasional achy back. This seat cover only needs about 3 minutes to warm up, and you don’t ever have to worry about them (or you) staying in place because they come with a no-slip back and adjustable dual straps to keep you or the covers from sliding. Even if you have heated seats, these are a great gift for the homie that doesn’t.
Purse Hooks ($6.99, shop here)
Yes, we’re serious, because there is nothing more defeating than hearing your purse fall over and your whole entire life rolling around on the floor. At under $10, and easy as heck to install we would consider purse hooks a smart investment.

You can choose from millions of colors of lights, the built-in mic will even help your car lights sync with your music because mood lighting, and you can control it all with the app. The 2-line design allows the 4 strip lights to easily attach with no visible wires or to give your car that untidy look. As for installation, all you have to do is attach strips to your car with adhesive and support clips.
Tissue Holder ($9.88, shop here)
What, you never sneeze when you’re driving and need a tissue after? This is also great for holding masks if you tend to go through those faster.
