How would you like to make up for years of lackluster gifts with one spectacular show of appreciation this Father’s Day? No matter the type of Dad you want to celebrate (the man who gave you life, an important father-figure, or the father of your children), we all want the opportunity to make Dad feel special this weekend. Quoted is here with the ultimate gift guide for the car-loving Dads in your life.
At first glance, gifting a Dad car accessories doesn’t seem very groundbreaking, but we’ve got a whole new spin on a classic, with specialized, optimized, computerized add-ons and add-ins.
If Dad needs any of the usual suspects (new jumper cables, a car vacuum, or even a phone mount), look no further than the Car and Driver’s Automotive Care Accessories line.
Upgrade Dad’s travel beverage situation with customizable, personalized, stylish designs at Tervis. Or, go for the classic stainless steel, vacuum-sealed, sleek-and-simple from WildMint for the more traditional Fathers in your life.

It also acts as a charger for phones and other gadgets. And the best part? It’s the size of an index card and will fit in a glove box.
For the Dad who appreciates the finer things, North American-made, beautifully crafted deerskin gloves from Olive & Cocoa might be just the ticket.
The Dad with little ones (or big, messy ones) might appreciate Prince Lionheart’s seatSAVER
