12 Essentials Every Man Needs In His Car

May 8, 2024
Today, I’m talking about cars, specifically ten essential items you need. Before I start, you need to do two specific things for your car. One is to ensure it’s clean, which is one of the easiest things you can do to boost your car’s appearance.

Next, make sure it doesn’t smell like ass. No matter what car you drive, if it stinks like butt, it’s a turn-off. I use Drift, which is a sister company to Scentbird. It’s not made of synthetic, toxic chemicals. They use natural essential oils, which I’m using teak, which smells insane and connects with a magnet you can slip on your visor. And then clip it. It’s made of a simple, sustainable block of wood. Use code ALPHA at Drift to get 55% off your first month.

Essentials for your car

  1. Pen and paper. You always need these to write things down while you’re in your car.
  2. Tube of Vaseline. It’s the best and can double as a moisturizer if your hands are dry. You can also dab it around your eyes. Other lip balms will melt and get nasty.
  3. Grooming kit. Buy or assemble a kit with essentials such as scissors, tweezers, and clippers.
  4. Knife. You can get a knife with a glass break on the back. This could also be used in case of an accident.
  5. Umbrella. You want to ensure you’re still looking good even in the rain.
  6. Gum. You need to have fresh breath.
  7. Pack of tissues. These are great to have on hand for various reasons, including crying, runny noses, and spills.
  8. Sunglasses. Always keep an extra pair in your car.
  9. Tire inflator. Mine is from the brand Slime. It’s a mini tire inflator and has come in handy.
  10. Bag + Box. My essentials bag contains extra coins (change), hand sanitizer, toothbrush, toothpaste, aspirin, Tylenol, butt wipes, and dental floss. My box contains a light jacket, first aid kit, gloves, towel, and running shoes.
  11. Headphones. I like to keep these in the car in case I forget mine.
  12. Flashlight. It’s essential for nighttime issues. Mine’s from a company called Coast.
