Ahhhh, Mother’s Day, it holds a special place in my heart for two very important reasons (my sons, naturally!). But, if you’re still trying to decide what to get mom, never fear, I have the answer! No, no, I’m not going to tell you to go to Glenn Auto Mall for a new car, but it is car-related.
If you have young kids, you’ve probably realized that the mom is the default chauffer. I can verify that this is, indeed, true. My daily driver has a hard time of it, as it becomes cluttered with toys, clothing, bits of food…and smells. It’s a mix between sweaty toes and chicken nuggets. Knowing this, the best thing you can do for the mom in your life is make her car a cleaner, better smelling, and more comfortable place.
Start by taking her car to get detailed and, when you bring it back to her, make sure you include some of these car air fresheners with soothing scents (or throw some Yankee Candle Car Jars in her spa gift basket!):
These scents help promote concentration and have a calming effect. These properties are perfect for the super anxious mom who feels angry, anxious or rundown. Think of it like a refreshing glass of lemonade for the olfactory.
If the mom in your life seems run down by emotional stress, lavender can relieve nervous tension and depression as well as treat headaches and migraines. I think I’ll put extra in my minivan…
This pretty little flower has uplifting properties. It can boost confidence, optimism and revitalize energy.
Not just for coffee cake and a mix-in for hot chocolate, this spice has stimulating properties that can help fight mental fatigue and improve concentration and focus.
Not just a great breath freshener, peppermint invigorates the mind, promotes concentration and stimulates clear thinking.
I don’t know about you, but I’d appreciate any (or all) of these fantastically soothing scents welcoming me when I open my car door. Whether you get her a freshener that hangs from the mirror or a cute air vent accessory, the mom in your life will appreciate that you’ve given her something to help keep her car smelling fresh as a daisy – even if it’s not always as clean as one!
