It's not too soon to start thinking about holiday shopping. Before you know it, the holiday decorations will take over the stores, and the mad rush will begin. For some people, this is a fun endeavor that's an integral part of the season. For others, it can be very stressful. Not knowing what to buy and where to buy it, can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Since the majority of people drive, purchasing something for their vehicle is a safe bet. Here are some cool car gadgets that are sure to please any recipient.
As seen on Shark Tank, Drop Stop is a gap filler that is placed between the center console and front seat. Also known as the Bermuda Triangle, this spot is typically home to everything you can't find. Drop Stop prevents keys, phones, change, jewelry, and more from falling down the car seat gap. It is attached via the seatbelt catch and moves with the seat to prevent anything from getting underneath it. Drop Stop is made of black neoprene casing, and once you install it, it's almost invisible. One size will fit all cars and trucks, so it is the perfect gift for anyone who drives.
