    Mobile Office Gear

    Mobile Office Gear 

    Perhaps the car lover on your list spends more time behind the wheel than in a traditional office setting. If so, perhaps Mobile Office Gear that enables him to accomplish business no matter where his travels take him is the ideal gift. Although computing and driving is certainly a big no-no, there may be times when he is stuck in the car -- think waiting to meet a client, stuck in a traffic jam or waiting to pick up kids from practice -- that could be better put to use.

    Ideas start at under $20 for a simple mobile desk that hooks over the steering wheel and holds a laptop to more intricate options, such as the Auto Exec Filemaster, which can handle more than 50 hanging files, has a nonskid surface for a computer or other devices and includes tons of organizational storage for under $200.

    No matter what you choose, whether a Corvette computer mouse, a mobile office or anything in between, your favorite car lover is sure to be pleased since you put so much effort and thought into the gift.
