We hesitate to say it too loudly, but the holidays are just around the corner, so it’s time to think about gifts. If you have someone in your life who spends a lot of time behind the wheel, here are some gift ideas they’ll really appreciate:
Storage space in a truck is always at a premium. Give the driver you love a quality work truck toolbox. There are many options to choose from, including crossbody boxes, step boxes, and even underbody toolboxes with drawers. They’ll really appreciate stowing their gear in a safe, secure, dry location.
In addition, a small safe or lockbox that doesn’t look like a safe or that can be easily hidden away helps truckers keep their valuables protected and hidden away. Console safes are another good option; they tuck neatly away in the console and allow drivers to lock away anything they want to protect.
Staying comfortable on the road is always helpful. There are tons of options for giving the gift of on-the-road comfort, including the following:
- Gel foam seat cushions
- Fans and heaters
- Sleeper berth mattress
- Premium pillow
- Seat organizers
- Portable cooler or refrigerator
- Power inverters/converters
- Dashboard mounts
- Comfy jacket
- Coffee maker
- Portable vacuum cleaner
- Audible or other audiobook membership
- Nice polarized sunglasses
And many more!
Keep the driver in your life healthy while on the road with gifts that promote good health. Compression socks make a good gift. They improve circulation and prevent the blood clots that are prone to form in the legs of folks who spend a lot of time sitting. Deep tissue massage guns can alleviate the muscle soreness that comes from prolonged sitting. Black-out masks and sound-canceling headphones will help the driver relax and unwind after a long job day, promoting healthy sleep.
Anything that can make the job easier is always appreciated. A good pair of work gloves make a great gift. Gloves protect the hands but also make many tough jobs easier to perform. Another good idea is a headlamp. Hands-free light can really come in handy. GPS navigators make getting around a breeze even in areas where cell service is unreliable or not available. You can hire trucking services for your business from Trout River Industries.
These are just a handful of gift ideas to help you make the holidays special for the truckers and work truck drivers in your life. If you’re still not sure what to do, why not ask your loved one? They might just be willing to point you in the right direction. Happy gift giving!
