Shopping for a truck driver can be challenging because you know they spend most of the time on the road. The best thing to do is to put yourself in their place and ask yourself what things would make your life easier if you were on the road a lot. To help get you thinking about what to buy, check out our top 8 gifts for truck drivers.
1. Semi-Truck Mattress
Having a nice soft or firm semi-truck mattress to sleep on after driving all day is a perfect gift to give. Since everyone has their own mattress comfort level, opt for a gift card to cover the cost of the mattress so your favorite trucker can choose their preferred comfort level.
2. GPS/Smartphone Dash Mount
Keep truck drivers safe while driving with a dash mount to hold their GPS or smartphone and help them drive hands-free.
3. Laptop Stand and Mount
Since a desk won’t fit easily into a semi-truck, a laptop stand and mount are the next best thing. They secure the laptop in place and make using it easier.
4. Semi-Truck Seats
Giving the gift of a new, comfortable seat with the latest features like heat, massage, and cooling can be a great gift for a truck driver.
5. Mini Refrigerator
Having access to cold beverages and being able to store food allows truckers to make healthier drink and meal choices.
6. Slow Cooker
A slow cooker is a wonderful gift because truck drivers can put what they want to eat for dinner in the slow cooker before they hit the road. At the end of the day, when they are tired and ready to eat, their fresh meal will be ready and waiting.
Extra blankets go a long way, especially in the winter months. It can get cold in the cab, so having some extra blankets to keep warm is a good gift idea.
8. Satellite Radio and Subscription
Satellite radio is a great way to access a wide range of music, news, sports, and talk-radio stations. It is perfect for truckers so they don’t have to try to scan stations constantly as they are driving down the road.
