Men can be difficult to shop for. As Father’s Day approaches, there is always a scramble to search for something that won’t end up covered in dust in the shed or storage locker. We’ve helped you out by curating a list of gifts that are sure to make your Dad happy you were born.

10) Reliable Brio 500CC Steam Cleaning System

Canadian company Reliable recently introduced the perfect present for the true car enthusiast as it allows Dad to carefully clean and detail his automobile like a pro.

Five bar working pressure produces consistent volumes of high-pressure steam, means he can clean and sanitize all of the sticky interior surfaces without the use of harsh chemicals. All he’ll need to do is add water. The 25-piece high-performance multi-purpose accessory kit will allow him to blast dust and dirt from hard to reach places, create streak free windows and remove road salt and grim without scratching surfaces. Once he’s done with his own vehicle, he may even want to clean mom’s. If he knows what’s good for him.
