Need inspiration for Father's Day? We've got some great gift ideas that he's bound to love...maybe
With Father's Day just around the corner, we've pulled together some car-related gifts ideas to suit all budgets as well as senses of humour!
1. Haynes Manual - £16.99
What about a classic Haynes Manual? If he's always tinkering about under the bonnet then this is the perfect gift. Better still, why not suggest he looks at leasing his next car as all our cars are brand new and covered by the manufacturer's warranty. He could even chose to have the car fully maintained, giving him more time driving his car rather than fixing it. Head over to www.haynes.com and prices are from £16.99
2. Personal Pint Glass - £9.99
If your Dad also likes a pint then we think this personalised Top Beer glass from www.gettingpersonal.co.uk is just the ticket. At just £9.99 then it's easy on the pocket too.
3. Star Wars Tie Fighter Universal Mobile Car Grip - £11.99
Maybe he's a Star Wars fan? In which case he might just like this mobile phone grip. It's available from menkind.co.uk and remember....the Force will be with you always.
4. Travel Mug - £19.99
Practical and stylish - this Bodum travel mug from Argos will allow him to enjoy a brew on his commute.
5. RAC Portable Power Washer 8L - £14.99
believe this for value! All the lads in the office want one - your Dad will
love this power washer, which is easy to use and doesn't need electricity or
6. Autoglym Perfect Bodywork Gift Collection - £32
If your Dad strives for paintwork perfection then this beautifully presented gift from Autoglym will be sure to delight. It contains shampoo conditioner, super resin polish and extra gloss protection. We saw it at Halfords.
7. Supercar Taster with Hot Ride - £40
That's right, you can treat your Dad to a one hour taster drive of a Supercar from the folks at Red Letter Days, and at the moment it's half price, so you pay just £40 instead of £80. This will guarantee your place in the family as favourite kid. He can choose from Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, BMW M3, Lamborghini Gallardo, Nissan GTR, Toyota Supra, Subaru Impreza STI, Mitsubishi Evolution X, Porsche GT2, 'Italian Job' Mini Cooper or the classic 1968 Bullitt Ford Mustang. Get in!
8. Whistle Key Finder - £2.29
Now then, if your Dad's always losing his key then the whistle key finder is a must. Just attach it to his keys - or anything else for that matter - and whistle. The keyring will flash and beep noisily until he successfully locates whatever it's attached too! Available from findmeagift.co.uk for the bargain price of just £2.29
9. Car Memory Stick - £24
What about this nifty memory stick in the guise of a new Mini Cooper? Combine his love of technology and cars with this officially licensed BMW Mini Cooper S Flash Drive for use with a PC, desktop computer or laptop running Windows 7, 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista or MAC OS/X.
10. Urine Bottle - £14.99
When a man's gotta go, he's gotta go. Hey don't knock it til you've tried it. Have you ever been stuck in a traffic jam miles from a loo? With this wee bottle from qwerkity.com your Dad will never be caught short again. It's got a tight fitting lid to ensure no spills - nice touch. But quite why it's got the measurements down the side we're not sure - possibly to check your Dad's not dehydrated - thoughtful.
So, our work here is done. Hopefully we've given you some inspiration to get your old Dad something he'll treasure for Father's Day. You're welcome...and good luck.
