Posted by Marc Michelsen on

It’s not long until Father’s Day – the time to spoil your dad and show him just how much you appreciate him. It can be surprisingly hard to find the ideal gift, though. If you’re still searching for inspiration, check out our suggestions – we’ve got some great Father’s Day gift ideas for car fans.

  1. Car-shaped survival tool

Whose doesn’t love a multi-purpose gadget? This car-shaped version is a real winner. It includes a knife edge, saw blade, bottle opener, can opener, two wrenches, screwdriver, ruler and more, and it’s made from 420 stainless steel.

  1. A new toolbox

Where does your dad keep his tools? Smarten up his current storage by buying him a new toolbox. A sturdy cantilever design is always popular, especially as it’s easily portable.

Alternatively, if he has room, you could go for a sturdy tool chest. Some units are relatively small, with two or three drawers, while others are larger and are on wheels for more mobility.

  1. His own supercar

You’re never too old for Lego! This 830-piece McLaren Senna GTR from the Technic range will keep him busy for a while (and you could join in, too). Alternatively, he might prefer a Bugatti Chiron, Jeep Wrangler, or even a classic Batmobile.

  1. A Formula 1 team shirt

If your dad is into F1, help him show his allegiance with clothing from his favorite team. From mighty Mercedes to struggling Haas, The F1 Store carries a full selection – shop by team or driver and check out their extensive range of accessories, too.

  1. HideThatScratch gift card

A scratched wheel rim is infuriating, but we’ve got the perfect DIY repair solution. A HideThatScratch gift card means your dad can choose exactly the right shade for his car and it’s delivered electronically – so no worrying whether it will arrive in time. Click here to order your gift card.

  1. Award-winning security

Disklok is one of the most effective full-cover steering wheel security locks available. The reinforced steel construction deters would-be vehicle and airbag thieves and is designed to prevent steering lock damage. Definitely worth the investment.

  1. A chocolate tool kit

Indulge dad’s sweet tooth with a chocolate tool kit – this one includes spanners, pliers and nuts and bolts. Great for both experienced car mechanics and those who prefer some armchair DIY!

  1. Time for a track day

When they’re not hosting race meetings, most circuits offer driving days for those who want to experience the thrill of racing for themselves. Depending on the track, you’ll find everything from karts to supercars, so check out your local circuit. Reputable centers will supply helmets and clothing that meets relevant safety standards and give full safety briefings.

  1. Coffee (or tea) on the go

If your dad has a long daily commute or spends time on the road, treat him to a new travel mug. The YETI Rambler is perfect for car travel, as it opens and closes with the flick of a finger. It’s designed to be easy-grip, is double insulated, and comes in a range of funky colors. It’s dishwasher safe, too.
