It's Father's Day on Sunday 21 June, and if you don't already have a gift in mind, you may wish to try one of these automotive presents for a car-loving Dad. If you are a father and are worried about receiving yet another pair of socks, leave this web page open as a handy hint...

Laser Tools compact ratchet set

This is a really neat little set which takes up very little space in the boot and comes with all the essential bits you need for some minor mechanic-ing, together with a useful storage case. All the bits are made of S2 steel for strength and the ratchet is chrome vanadium for durability. Ten bits are included for the £30.34 price.

Wheeler Dealers book

The car restoration TV show now has its very own Haynes manual showing in detail how ten of the restorations featured in the show were achieved, including the process of finding and buying the car. There are plenty of pictures and advice you can use to follow in Mike and Edd's footsteps. Priced £22.99 with the ISBN 978 0 857733 798 6.

Laser Tools Mini Jump Start Pack

Compact and lightweight enough to keep in the car, this jump starter still has plenty of juice to get you going. It can power diesel engines up to 3.0 litres and petrol units up to 6.5 litres. The unit includes some LED lighting so you can see exactly where those leads are going, and a probe to measure remaining battery charge. You can also charge your mobile from it, thanks to a couple of 5v USB points and a 12V DC socket. A 240v-12v charger means that you can charge it up at home and an adaptor lets you plug it into your car's 12v socket. There's also an integrated sensor to prevent overcharging if you forget to unplug it. At £268, this is a gift for really special dads.

Auto Finish All in One Valet Kit

If your dad is the old fashioned kind who enjoys nothing more than getting out there and polishing the car at the weekend, he'll enjoy this cleaning kit. It contains everything you need to get a sparkling finish on even the muddiest car. The set comes in a neat carrying case and includes wash and wax, resin polish, colour restorer, bumper shine, screen wash, wheel cleaner, tar remover, glass polish and even a sponge and a polishing cloth. The kit costs £39.99 but bought separately the products would add up to £25 more.
