Offering to take the car for grooming or simply surprising him with an appointment at the workshop and paying for it will be quite a sparkly delight for him.
2. Car Washing
Joining or taking over his usual weekend car wash routine is not only inexpensive, or free, but it also allows you quality bonding time over a shared activity. Alternatively, you could present him with car washing tools such as a pressure washer or an automated wheel-cleaning brush for more effective future car washes, especially for areas hard to reach.
