Very few dads don’t have at least some love of cars and it’s often difficult to separate a man from his motor. Father’s Day is the ideal time to treat the petrol-head pop in your life with a car related gift. Here are some ideas for motor-related gifts to bring a smile to your dad’s face this Sunday.
Gifts for under £20
- A personalised notebook is perfect for reminding your dad that you care and is a practical gift too. Handy for home and office, this notebook can be tailored to suit. With a number of dream cars to choose from on the cover just find his favourite and personalise the number plate with his name, nickname or even a short message.
- If you don’t mind his dancing, but think his CD collection could do with updating, why not opt for some driving music. There is a vast array of driving compilation CDs on the market designed to make even the longest or most boring journeys more interesting, like the latest Top Gear double CD Full Throttle, featuring favourites past and present.
- Why not combine your Father’s love of cars and fine wines by giving him a gear stick bottle stopper. This stylish bottle stopper fits all wine and port bottle sizes and makes a lovely present accompanied by his favourite tipple. Obviously this product is not intended for use while driving …

- If you’ve more money to spend, a track day gives dad a once in a lifetime experience and memories too. Ranging from stock car racing to supercar track days, or even stunt driving, there is sure to be a day perfect for your special dad. He can even drag the family along to watch. Make sure you take a camera to capture those treasured moments.
- If your dad likes to plan his own route rather than stick to the track, then classic car or sports car hire may be right up his street. There are companies across the country and loads of cars to choose from, your dad could spend the day cruising around in the car he’s always dreamed of driving.
If those ideas don’t tickle your fancy or finances are tight, you could always give your dad’s car a good clean, or, if you’re feeling lazy, car cleaning vouchers to be redeemed in the future. If your dad is of the tinkering persuasion you could volunteer a days labour giving his car some TLC – I can’t think of a better way to spend some quality time together.
