My father was an automotive enthusiast, and many weekends growing up, you’d find him washing or tinkering with his current set of wheels. He was the DIY type and would only take his car to the “shop” when the problem fell outside of his knowledge and skills. Along with keeping a set of car-specific tools, he took pride in keeping his car clean. He was the man who would have appreciated a car care kit, tools or other gadgets to keep his wheels looking good and to occupy some of his free time with small car-related projects.
Admittedly, I struggle with gifting something so practical. But from my experience, men appreciate items they can actually use, particularly if those items mirror their hobbies and passions. This particular car care kit from Walmart retails for just $19.88 and includes a selection of Armor All products including the following:
- Extreme Tire Shine
- QuickSilver Wheel and Tire Cleaner
- Cleaning Wipes
- Ultra Shine Wash and Wax
- Glass Wipes
- Original Protectant
- Microfiber Towel
- Car Wash Sponge
- Pro Secrets Booklet
As a woman, I like the fact that all of the products fit nicely in the spacious bucket included with this set, which can then be used to wash the car. Along with selecting a card, I also decided to include an air freshener, a Custom Mug and a Walmart gift card so that dad can purchase any additional items he may need for his car.
I always like to include a personal touch, so I picked up this adorable Custom Mug Kit from ArtSkills for just $4.97. The kit includes a travel mug (so dad can take his coffee on the road), 3 insert sheets and 3 paint packets. Kids can use the paint to personalize the mug with their handprints (or any other design). This is an easy project kids can complete and a mug dad will cherish as he goes off to work for the day.
