2023 Father's Day Gift Ideas that are Perfect for Any Gearhead

Father and Daughter

Whether the dad in your life gets his hands dirty diagnosing a problem under the hood or giving his vehicle a showroom-ready shine, there's an automotive Father's Day gift just right for him. Here are just a few ideas that fit any budget and help show your appreciation for the dad in your life.


Elbow-deep around the engine block or lying on a mechanic's creeper is definitely not the place or time you want Dad to realize he grabbed the wrong tool because the size markings have all worn off. Select DieHard tools and tool sets are now on sale, including go-to maintenance and repair tools he'll use often. Built from high-quality materials and tested to exceed industry standards, DieHard tools are reliable, durable and powerful, and make dad’s projects easier. 


Dad may already know it is time to change the brakes. That squeal he can hear over his favorite car tunes is an obvious sign. Either way, when he’s ready to take the project on, Advance Auto Parts can help in several ways. 

First, he can find the brakes that fit his vehicle using our “Add a Vehicle” tool. Find it at the top of the search bar, or the Advance app. Here is a helpful article to help you complete the job. 

And right now, you can find money-saving offers on brakes, including a 15% instant savings on any Carquest brake pads and two brake rotors.


There’s a widely accepted opinion that vehicles that look great also run better and make their owners proud of what they're driving. With that in mind, Advance offers a wide variety of appearance products for cleaning, protecting, and dazzling.

Whether it’s for your practical dad who wants to protect his investment or the trip-loving dad who wants to look good every time he rolls, gift him the appearance and protection products he needs.  During our special Father’s Day promotion, you can save on select Meguiar’s and Chemical Guys products that clean and protect Dad’s car’s interior and exterior.
