For the Dad who Loves a Card: Pop-Up Trophy
My stepdad loves a good novelty card. He has a collection of them that he’s accumulated since he was a kid. So the introduction of the pop-up card was a massive year for him. If your dad enjoys his cards even half as much, then he’ll love this pop-up diorama with a a vintage car that reads “dad, you’re a true classic.” It’s unique and fun—perfect for any dad.
For the Dad Obsessed with Classics: A Cassette Bluetooth Adapter
Does your dad still insist upon driving cars with cassette players? It can be inevitable if he’s a fan of older vehicles or has a solid collection. But it’s time to bring him into the 21st century with this cassette bluetooth adapter. Help him connect his phone, and he can listen to more than the same cassette collection he’s had since 1989.
For the Dad Who Loves to Read: History’s Greatest Automotive Mysteries, Myths, and Rumors Revealed by Matt Stone and Preston Lerner
Does your dad love to read? Does he love trivia? Knock out two goals with one book in History’s Greatest Automotive Mysteries, Myths, and Rumors Revealed. He’ll have enough fun facts and tidbits to singlehandedly entertain his next BBQ party (and it’s a great read if you’re looking for a little something to sneak in between phone calls, too). Learn about NASCAR’s fear of peanuts, the James Dean curse, Harry Houdini’s single drive, and more.
For the Dad who Loves His Comfort: Memory Foam Seat Cushions
If dad’s always groaning and aching when he gets out of the car, it’s time to invest in some comfort. This memory foam seat cushion relieves pressure on your tailbone to make for a more comfortable ride, and it’s easy to move, so dad can pop it into his daily driver or the weekend classic cruiser. Not only is it subtle, but it has a flap in the front that lets you store things like cell phones, money, or credit cards for easy access.
For the Dad with a Sense of Humor: A Novelty Shirt
If there’s one thing better than a good dad joke, it’s a good dad joke on a t-shirt. This one reads “I’m not old, I’m classic,” which might just become dad’s new favorite catchphrase.
For the Unprepared Dad: Emergency Kit
Not every dad is a paragon of preparedness—trust me, I know firsthand! This handy emergency kit contains everything he’ll need for all types of emergencies. There’s a first aid kit, jumper cables, cable ties, an emergency poncho, and more, all tucked into a well-made storage bag. This is a must-have for all cars, but it’s especially great for dads who might always find themselves looking for an extra screwdriver.
For the DIY Dad: Portable Lights
Whether dad likes working on his car or he just needs some extra light to hunt down the phone he just dropped in the crack between the seats, these rechargeable LED work lights can be a savior. They’re portable and bright, and with a pack of four, he can leave one in the car and keep the rest in his shop. Nothing is better than the gift of light.
For Dad’s Man Cave: Aluminum Signs
Some dads have a pretty wry sense of humor, and this sign would make the perfect addition to his man cave or his garage. Even though my stepdad isn’t a car guy and couldn’t fix a car to save his life, this is still something he’d have hanging in his office. I suppose that dad humor knows no boundaries!
For the Outdoorsy Dad: Car Canopy
Nothing is worse than trying to enjoy a nice beer at your campsite only to simultaneously bake in the hot sunshine. This canopy is great for anyone who needs a little bit of shelter. It can be assembled three different ways: an A-frame attached to the car, an A-frame detached from the car, and an awning setup that attaches to the car. It’s perfect for beach days, camping trips, hunting excursions, and more.
For the Long-Distance Driver: In-Car Cooler
No more stops for cold water and snacks at gas stations when you haven’t planned for it! This app-controlled in-car cooler will keep your drinks and snacks icy fresh while you’re traveling, and while it’s a larger option, it’s still small enough to sit on the middle seat in the rear of your SUV. Enjoy all the cool sodas you want without having to make a time-sucking stop!
For the Dad Dying to Race: Skip Barber Racing School Classes
Does dad have every object that he could possibly want? Then it might be time to buy him an experience. The Skip Barber Racing School is one of the most well-respected racing and driving schools in America, and it offers tons of different program that will no doubt get your dad excited. Sign him up for one-, two-, or three-day schools so he can see what it’s like to, say, drive a race-outfitted Ford Mustang or try a Formula-style single-seater. You can even book him a track day if he has his own car he’s itching to push. This is a great option for a dad who loves speed and has it all.
