A way to give thanks, especially for the the dads who love cars more than you do, is to surprise them with presents that they can use in their vehicles for their day to day travels. 

Here is a list of things for them and their cars that can help them on their daily journeys, and might make their lives a lot easier. 

Car cleaning kit

Most car nut dads like to keep things in their vehicle neat and tidy. Since not everyone has the luxury of having their cars washed regularly, a cleaning kit can easily clear up dirt inside and out, remove those bugs and grime stuck in the windshields, and lessen the dirt accumulated from air pollutants. That's one less trip to the car wash.

Key finder
