Does a guy on your list often attempt to type in directions or look at his iPhone while on the road?
Suction the WindowSeat Windshield Mount for iPhone and iPod on to his windshield (perhaps with a big red bow around it?) and he'll be all set. No more balancing the phone precariously on his thigh or on the edge of the steering wheel. With two hands free, he'll be safer and more focused on driving.
The one downside of this product is that you have to remove it if you want to use your car's sunshade - not exactly convenient. This is a semi-large factor for us in Arizona because it's sunshiny here even in the middle of winter, but it may not be as relevant for those that live in colder, cloudier climates.
I would particularly recommend this product for business travelers and/or people with long commutes.

This is the perfect solution to our travel needs! when we are on the road we are always using the iphjone for all kinds of stuff! This looks super useful! Does it match with the 3G and 3GS?
We should try it for our long commute
We travel long distances when we visit family. We are driving back up for Thanksgiving and this would come in hand for that trip.
My husband is always pulling out his iPhone while driving. It scares me to death. This would be really handy!
My brother in Texas is a salesman and travels long distances. This would be great for him.
MY Bro would LOVE this!!!
This is pretty cool, as long as people aren't using it to watch music videos while they're driving. LOL!
This is great for A "husband" but my husband has a gps and everything, however I don't have one and I need a stand to hold my iPhone to follow the gps on it. I so need this for ME, the wifey who gets lost all the time!!

This is a great idea! my hubby scares me with how much work he does on his phone while driving.. am slowly talking him into letting me be his 'fingers' the few times a week he drives all of us around. All for increasing the odds of safely arriving at home!
Joe said these rock! I (joe) totally want one.
My boyfriend and I just drove over 100 miles roundtrip for Thanksgiving, and we used my iPhone for navigation, but didn't have a convenient place to put it. It wasn't dreadful, but something like this would have been very useful.
This is on my husband's Christmas wish list, so it would be so great to win this! My husband likes to use the GPS feature in his phone, and having it at his eye level would be much safer.
Wow its amazing what technology can do isnt it? MY dh just got an ipod from a friend who had two
If I win this I will be adding a GPS application to my iphone
I confess, we're too cheap for the iphone. My brother in law has one though, and I bet he'd love this - it would make a nice Christmas present.
I am not sure this would help, or just make us want to look at the Ipod even more.( while we drive)
This looks interesting! I think I might like to use it but I really don't care to take my eyes off the road for any reason. I don't even usually answer my phone while driving unless it's hubs. I need a ear bud before I do that. Kev loves my iPhone so much he's going to trade in his phone for one. Always love to try out new gadgets!
Do I have to give this to my hubby if I win?? JK :)
I'd really like to win one of these for my mother in law who travels a lot for her work and could use one!
This is the best idea every! I struggle with my iPhone all the time!
THAT is a brilliant idea! I just got an iTouch, and I'm loving it. But that would be a great way to switch tunes (only at a stop light, of course.) ;-)
Great idea! My hubby could really use this as he is always in his truck driving places for his business. Thanks for sharing.
Can you keep it on the windshield when you're no longer driving, or will it melt or something? In any case, Chris might like it.
That's a cool idea, using my phone while driving is so dangerous! I wonder if it really does help when it's on the windshield?
I Tweeted your giveaway: http://twitter.com/cmh512/status/6073632414.
Again, thanks very much!
Happy Thanksgiving! My husband drives 60 miles one way to work on a daily basis. I worry about hims with his iPhone and iPod! He is probably worse with his iPod than with his iPhone.

I live in your "not so sunny" location of Seattle so this would be perfect for us. My husband and I both have iphones and really could use this to make us safer drivers!
Oh. My. My husband is practically addicted to his iPhone as it is, but he'd LOVE me even more if I won this for him. I think I might just get roses, chocolate, plus a big 'ol smooch.
(Funny that the first two commenters are both Annettes!)
This windshield mount for iPod is very cool. My almost 21 year old son would love it! He is very into his music and carries his iPod everywhere.
