Have you procrastinated getting Mom something special for Mother’s Day? Shame on you! To help you make the best choice before May 13 arrives, check out these hip, chic, and super-trendy Mother’s Day gift ideas for moms who always seem to be on the road.
Hood To Go Portable Rain Hood
Although Miami is no Seattle, it does get approximately 130 days of rainfall each year. And while Mom may keep an umbrella in the trunk of her car, that’s no guarantee she’ll remember to bring it into the office on an especially rainy morning.
The solution: Hood To Go, a traveling rain hood that fits easily into any purse or bag. Made of poly microfiber, this portable and washable hood is worn as a vest underneath clothing and jackets. When the sprinkles arrive, Mom can just pop the hood up and get moving.
Purchase it directly at www.hoodtogo.com for about $25.
Mini Car Vacuum
If your mom isn’t lucky enough to own a Honda Odyssey, she might not realize how convenient it can be to have the built-in HondaVac system. Get her the next best thing: A cheap mini car vacuum. Sold for under $20, this USB-powered vacuum picks up sand, pebbles, and hair-ties with ease.
USB Power Bank & Multi-Tool
If your mom is always on the move, her phone is probably running on empty by noon. Sure, you could give her a new smartphone charging cable—nothing says, “we respect and love you, Mom,” quite like a power cord—but why not venture into the twenty-first century with your Mother’s Day gift?
The Switch 10 device from Goal Zero is the modern-era multi-tool. It allows Mom to charge her devices using the solar-powered 2,600-mAh battery, but there’s far more to this cool tool than that. In addition to being a portable smartphone charger, this gadget also connects and powers other various USB devices, like laptop lights, mini fans, and more.
The Goal Zero Switch 10 is sold on their website for under $50.
Furbo Dog Camera
Motherhood is not restricted by species! Moms all over the country adore their four-legged children, too, so why not act on the family dog’s behalf this Mother’s Day?
Essentially the realization of 1984 but for canines, the Furbo Dog Camera helps moms keep an eye on their pets when no one is in the house. From the Furbo smartphone app, users can watch, listen, talk to, and even feed their dogs treats. What a world we live in.

The AromaAllure diffuser is available on Amazon for under $30.
Remote Car Starter
Mornings in Miami may not break any cold-weather records, but that doesn’t mean Mom should warm up her car like some Neanderthal. By installing a remote car starter system in her car for Mother’s Day, you ensure she has the right tools to always stay warm and toasty.
