9. Jump Starter

If the person you are buying a gift for is the “go-to” person when it comes to broken down cars, then an alternative to a socket set can be a jump starter. These are small devices that can revive a battery for a car from a dead state. This avoids the need for cables or messing around and the best car jump starter will pack a big punch and revive almost all small to light truck vehicles.

10. Tire Inflator
