Merry Christmas Trucking Nation

ExpressTruckTax thanks truckers who spend Christmas OTR

What in the world? It’s Christmas already! Time really does start to fly as we get older. We hope you’re able to celebrate the holidays with your loved ones because you’ve really earned it. Truckers are responsible for making the holiday season possible as they deliver loads across the nation during the busiest time of year for trucking.

Whether you were the driver delivering Christmas trees so families could decorate their homes or the driver with a load full of Christmas flavored peeps, thank you for all of your hard work! If you can’t make it home for Christmas, don't feel blue. Check out how to have a happy holiday.

Christmas OTR


Bring a Buddy

You don’t have to spend the day by yourself. Your spouse and kids should have some time off, so take them on a special road trip during their holiday break. They will love seeing Christmas decorations all across the country. You can also take your pup along if the people in your life are busy. Just make sure your carrier allows pets.

Eat!

Christmas is one of the few days of the year where people can shamelessly eat what they want. Throw out your calorie plan and order the glorious feast that you want. It doesn’t matter if you sit down to eat or it’s your favorite fast food option, enjoy it. You can also bring your favorite holiday treats along in your rig.

Be Talkative

You don’t have to spend Christmas quietly talking to yourself. Reach out to your friends and family by calling them. You can also use a program like Skype to video call them or to watch your kids open what Santa brought them. Also, other truckers are out and about so you can talk to them. No one loves talking like truckers do.

Watch Something Meaningful

We know you have Netflix or Hulu set up in your rig, so use it to watch one of your favorite holiday movies. Maybe your family will be watching the same thing at home. Or you can take the time to distract yourself with a new, cool show.

Be Positive
Don’t spend the day feeling down. Remember that your hard work will pay off. You’ve probably rescheduled your holiday celebration to happen when you get home, so think about how happy your family will be once you arrive!

The Ultimate Trucker Gifts

0
ExpressTruckTax wishes truck drivers a merry Christmas
Y’all Christmas is only a few days away, so you better finish up your shopping before you run out of time. Make a list, and check it twice, then remember to get the trucker in your life something meaningful even if they’ve been naughty or nice.

December is one of the busiest times a year for truckers as they drive all over the nation delivering presents to make Christmas possible! The driver in your life deserves a relaxing break to celebrate the holidays with you and their loved ones, so get them something great. Check out our list of the perfect trucking gifts for both the male and lady truckers.

The Best Trucking Gifts


1. Hands-Free Devices

We know you want to check up on the trucker in your life when they are on the road, but holding phones and other devices can be really distracting. Consider getting them a wireless headset so they can talk to you, hands-free. You could also get them a dash mount for their phone and wireless headphones.

2. Warm Gear

Winter is here and many states have experienced snow. Even Atlanta got a good dump! Your trucker will be up early in the morning and late at night doing pre-trip inspections in the cold. Make sure they can stay warm with utility gloves and a nice hat or coat.

Also, it’s cold OTR. Make sure they stay warm in the cab once they park with a space heater or electric blanket. The blanket doesn’t even have a lot of space because they’re available in throw sizes.

3. Coffee

Trucking is exhausting, your driver needs coffee to get moving and keep moving. Help them out by giving them the gift of instant coffee in their rig with a portable coffee maker. Also, get them a heavy duty thermos like a YETI one to keep their coffee warm for hours. Some truckers would like a mug the size of a gallon and you can also get ones with your photo on them for their favorite sports team.

4. T-Shirts

Truckers like to ride in comfort and style, that means they don’t need just any t-shirt but cool ones to flaunt at the truck stop. You can get trucking shirts with funny sayings like, “I just dropped a load.” You can also get them shirts for their favorite trucking shows like Ice Road Truckers or for awesome truck shops like Jack’s Chrome Shop.

5. Gift Cards or Cash

You can give the trucker in your life the ability to pamper themselves by allowing them to shop for themselves. With a gift card or cash, they will be able to get excited and go shop for what they really want. We know truckers are always wanting something cool from Wal-Mart or new tools from the hardware store.

6. Don’t Forget Their Pets

Many drivers take furry pals along on the road and they are more than best friends forever. They’re partners in trucking adventures. If your trucker has a dog, cat, bird or more, include them. Get them a new bone, catnip toy, sweater, bed, blanket, etc. Items that keep the pet entertained are best. The possibilities are endless and your trucker will really enjoy seeing their spoiled buddy included in the holiday festivities.
