If know a truck driver, what better way to treat them than finding something that is going to make all those long trips a little better. So if you are struggling to find that wow gift we have gathered a list of the best Christmas gifts for truck drivers.
The Best Christmas Gifts For Truck Drivers
1. Heavy Duty Phone Case
Working as a truck driver can be rough, and it is a long way from the cob to the concrete. So having a quality phone case is a must-have for any trucker.
2. AC/DC Power Inverter
Being able to plug in everyday appliances like a TV, microwave, or video game is essential for anyone away from home for days or even weeks at a time. Now your trucker can have some of the conveniences of home while on the road.
3. Audio Books
Sometimes you need a good book to keep you occupied while on a long haul. If your trucker is a reader, you should consider getting them an Audible subscription. They offer thousands of titles from any genre imaginable. There is no way your trucker won’t find something to enjoy.
4. Sirius Radio Subscription
If your trucker is more of a music buff, then I would recommend a Sirius Radio subscription, because let’s be honest there is nothing better than driving along with your favorite tunes. They offer several packages to choose from including sports, racing, and news. No more having to find local radio stations or constantly listen to the same old songs from their iPod.
5. Hotel Voucher
This is a great way to treat your trucker for the day especially if they can’t make it home for Christmas. After a long and stressful day, they get to enjoy a big bed, private shower, wifi, and cable TV.
However, you will need to do your research and consider a lot of details before choosing a hotel. This gesture can quickly turn into a nightmare for your favorite trucker.
- Biggie: Do they allow truck parking?
- The hotel should be a national chain or have several locations in the region your trucker hauls in.
- Check out online reviews and the experience of fellow truckers.
- The hotel needs to be located near a major interstate and highway.
- Do they allow pets? (If your trucker has a dog with them on the road)
6. Restaurant or Truck Stop Gift Card
A delicious warm meal at a nice sit-down restaurant could just be the things to turn a rough day around. Even an ice cold drink or snack can help your trucker get back on the road in higher spirits. Just remember when you are choosing a truck stop or restaurant that it should be an established chain with truck parking available.
7. Shower Duffel Bag
It might sound like a super simple gift, but truckers will really appreciate it. Pick up a solid color duffle bag with metal zippers because it is higher quality and will last longer. Throw in a big fluffy town, shampoo, conditioner, his favorite wash (if they like bar soap, get a travel case), deodorant, toothpaste, a new toothbrush, and a pair of shower sandals.
8. Seat Cushion or Massage Insert
Trucking driving is hard on the body, and a seat cushion and/or massage cushion is perfect for relieving some of the stress. They can get a massage to ease some of the pain and soreness he gets from his long days on the road.
9. Home Cooked Meal
If your trucker has a mini fridge and access to a microwave, you might consider making a delicious home cooked meal for them to take on the road. This is a great way to remind them of home when they are on the road. Besides, let’s face it, home cooking is always better than what they are getting on the road. Ask your Mom what his favorite meal is and have it ready next time they hits the road. Send your trucker off with some of the luxuries of home.
10. Mobile Air Purifier
Does your trucker suffer from seasonal allergies? Get them a 12-volt air purifier that plugs right into the cigarette lighter. This little device will eliminate dust, odors, pollen, and smoke! This is an inexpensive and thoughtful gift that will help your trucker on a daily basis.
No one knows your trucker better than you do and we are sure you’ll find the perfect gift to show them how much they mean to you. We want to take a moment to thank all the truckers out there!
