It’s time to start thinking about buying your dad a brilliant motoring-related present. And it just so happens that we have a few ideas…
Here’s the Mike Brewer Motoring Father’s Day gift guide 2022:
Drive Dad’s Car (From £49)
Part of The Great British Car Journey in Derbyshire, this is a great way to bring back a few of your dad’s motoring memories. He’ll get a 20-minute drive alongside an instructor, and there are more than 35 British classics to choose from, covering everything from an Austin Metro to a Bentley.
EXCLUSIVE OFFER!!! Mike Brewer Motoring has teamed up with Drive Dad’s Car to offer 15% off all drives booked before Father’s Day. Use the code MIKE15 when booking here
LEGO Porsche 911 (£124.99)
While a full-size classic 911 would be a great gift it might prove a touch expensive, so why not treat your dad to this one instead? Comprising almost 1500 pieces it will certainly keep him busy for a while, and alongside the iconic Porsche looks there are plenty of great details and features.
Tickets to The Classic, Silverstone (From £59)
If you’re going to treat your car-mad dad to any motoring event then it should probably be this one. It’s a fantastic spectacle that features everything from classic cars to amazing racing action on track, and the legendary F1 cars are truly special. There are various ticket options, from a single day to the full weekend.
Motoring Leg-Ends Socks (£9.00)
There’s always space for more socks, and we rather like these motor-racing inspired designs. There’s eight styles to choose from, including the famous Martini stripes and the Gulf blue and orange, and made from 70% cotton they should be long-lasting and super-comfy. They’re a bit of a bargain, too, we reckon.
A Motoring Book (various prices)
Settling down with a good book is always a treat, and we’ve chosen Veloce as they’ve got a huge choice. From specific models and marque histories to biographies and motorsport there’s guaranteed to be something to suit every car enthusiast. The difficult bit might be deciding which one to choose…
British car mugs gift box (£19.99)
When your dad is ready to take a break and enjoy his favourite brew on Father’s Day this is the perfect way to do it. The gift box includes four mugs, each featuring a picture of a great British classic from Jaguar, Aston Martin, MG and Morgan. They look great, and price is good, too.
McLaren Essentials 9Forty Cap (£29)
Now that the Formula 1 season is well and truly underway why not treat your dad to something from his favourite team? Here, we’ve chosen McLaren and amongst the tempting merchandise is this stylish cap. In their famous papaya orange and made from lightweight twill fabric it’s a smart way to keep cool.
Porsche Wallet (£100)
We reckon this is a super-stylish way to keep your dad’s money safe this Father’s Day, the wallet covered in top-quality hide and featuring a metal Porsche crest. It’s well-designed, too, with plenty of space to store bank cards and coins, and there’s an additional pocket for things like a driving licence. It’s the perfect match for the famous German sports cars.
Autoglym Bodywork & Wheels Collection (£49.99)
Summer is nearly here and the classic car show season is already up and running, so keeping that cherished motor looking smart is more important than ever. And this good-value kit includes everything needed, from shampoo and polish to wheel cleaner and tyre dressing. Products from Autoglym are top-notch, too.
Prescott Ales (£15.00)
Perfect for the dad that enjoys a relaxing beer, these cracking brews are inspired by the famous Prescott hillclimb in Gloucestershire. We reckon the mix-and-match pack of six is great, and there’s a good choice that includes traditional ales, IPA and lager. There’s guaranteed to be something for him to enjoy.
CTEK MXS 5.0 Battery Charger (£79.99)
Replacing a battery can get pricey, so it’s far better to keep the current one in tip-top condition. Perfect for classic and modern cars this excellent charger will do just that, and there’s plenty of useful features including automatic temperature compensation and fully-automatic conditioning and charging. There’s also a 5-year warranty.
Archive Prints (From £25)
Available from the British Motor Museum, these prints from their archives really are a bit special and will look perfect in the home or man cave. The wide choice of images includes specific makes and models and factory scenes, and there’s a choice of sizes and framing options. We definitely want some of these!
