Last Minute Father's Day Gifts For Truckers

0
Father’s day is almost here so we hope you have the day off to spend at home with your kids, or that the trucking dad in your life will be there. Heck, some of you might be from a generation of truckers, who learned everything you know about driving for your pops. If you haven’t gotten your dad a gift yet check out these last minute ideas.

Gift Ideas For Trucking Dads


First of all, you can save your dad some money. He needs to file his 2290 soon and he can use the promo code FATHERSDAY17 to get 10% of filing his return. This discount lasts until Monday the 17th.

These gift ideas are a little less emotional than Mother’s Day gifts. Dads are the ones who teach us how to ride bikes and to heal our wounds by rubbing some dirt in it, they want stuff that’s cool, funny, or that they actually need!

Tech wise you could blow your dad’s mind by getting him a dash cam to record all the close calls he sees on the road. Then instead of trying to describe how two cars barely missed hitting each other or how he saw a really cool dog on a motorcycle, he can show you!

Your dad probably drinks coffee because you tired him out when you were younger, and now he’s addicted. Why not surprise him with a portable coffee pot for his rig so he can brew coffee at any time?

Along with that coffee pot be sure to include a mug that supports his favorite sports team or a funny saying to show off.  “I just dropped a load” and “I don’t always fill out a log book, but when I do it’s made up” are funny examples that are also found on t-shirts.

Another good idea might be to get your dad a super cool wireless headset that he can use to answer phone calls head free. When you aren’t talking to him he will still need something to listen to though, so maybe you could introduce your old man to podcasts. There are shows about almost everything from sports to trucking and even murder mysteries.

Don’t forget about how your dad needs entertainment for when he’s parked overnight too. Consider getting him a wifi hotspot so he can play computer games or watch Netflix. There are some awesome manly shows he can stream like the Vikings, Ice Road Truckers, House of Cards, and more.

Men don’t like shopping for themselves, so if you pick up something your dad needs for him then it’s like two gifts in one. See if he needs a new electric shaver to keep his awesome trucking beard maintained, a new pair of polarized sunglasses, a more comfortable seat cushion, etc.

You know your pops likes to eat, he has his dad bod to maintain. Go ahead and get him a stash of his favorite chips, candy, and more to enjoy on the road. You could also plan a dinner or breakfast at his favorite restaurant to give him a good meal after all the skimping he’s had to do with fast food on the road.

Happy Father’s Day


No one knows your dad better than you do, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect gift to show him how much he means to you. We would like to take a moment to thank all dads out there, for teaching your kids everything you know and crafting perfect drivers! Also, remember that the sooner to pre-file your 2290 the better!
