Another Mother’s Day is upon us and figuring out what to get mom year after year can be a daunting task. Why not get her something creative, beautiful and offbeat inspired by the automotive world?
These purses and bags made from cool-colored seat belts caught my eye many years ago. I have four, and they are incredibly durable. They are great for travel, too. Prices start at $38.
I’ve worn my Kinekt gear necklace for years, and the tiny trinket is a big-time conversation starter. As its ball chain pulls to either side of its heart-shaped pendant, the three tiny gears inside the pendant are put in motion. How cool! It’s very comfortable and made of resilient stainless steel. Starts at $125.
How about some unique jewelry and stylish belts from the Motor City? Hex Detroit products are made with lightweight aluminum hex nuts. I bought three bracelets and a belt. My son grabbed the belt and says he can’t return it because he wears it daily. But I’m not letting go of the bracelets. They are distinctive and go with any outfit. Prices start at $15.
