Time is ticking down on the holiday season. Have you found the perfect gift for the truckers in your life? If you’ve struggled to come up with ideas, here are a few that we think every driver will love.
Bluetooth Earbuds: Help your favorite driver unwind with some favorite tunes with Bluetooth earbuds. You can find them in nearly any price range, and they make great stocking stuffers.
Health Trackers: For your health-conscious driver, help them keep track of their steps and exercise habits with a Fitbit, Garmin, or Apple health tracker. Some of the more sophisticated devices even track sleep patterns and stress levels, which might just help your truckers be safer on the roadways. And don’t forget to add in a year subscription to the “pro” version of their fitness tracker app so they can maximize all the benefits!
Portable WiFi Hotspot: Did you know that you can give your trucker internet access while they’re on the go? Many mobile carriers offer in-vehicle hot-spot devices that work anywhere you can get a cell signal, and it’s powerful enough that they’ll be able to stream movies and make video calls during stops and overnights.
Truck Route GPS Apps: Cellphones do a lot more than send texts and calls. Gifting your favorite trucker a subscription to a truck route GPS app can help them save time, find services, and avoid hazards, including low bridges.
Audio Books: The miles pass by faster when you listen to a good book! If you’re not sure what’s on your driver’s to-be-read list, a subscription to an audiobook app lets them pick out whatever suits their mood.
Gifts for In the Cab
Portable Safe: Leaving valuables in a vehicle is always a risk, but truckers can’t take everything with them every time they make a stop! Help them keep money, electronics, and other valuables safe with a portable safe that securely fastens inside a vehicle.
Ergonomic Seat Cushion: After sitting for long stretches, drivers feel the pressure! Help them alleviate pain and tension with cushions designed to relax the hips or support the lower back.
Blankets and Pillows: For drivers who use a sleeper berth, pillows and blankets are always a welcome gift. Help them dress up their mobile bedrooms with fun and functional bedding that supports their favorite team, or give them the gift of extra warmth with a heated blanket.
All-in-one Shower Kit: Gathering everything that’s needed to hit the showers can be a bit of a challenge, and there’s nothing worse than getting all wet and realizing you forgot the soap or shampoo! A hanging shower caddy helps keep everything organized. Don’t forget to include a towel and shower shoes!
First Aid Kit: Accidents happen! And when your trucker is out on the road, a stocked first aid kit can help them quickly deal with minor cuts, burns, or blisters.
Swag that They’ll Love (and Use)
Team Spirit: If your trucker has a particular team that they love, give them a gift that lets them show off their pride. Travel mugs, water bottles, keychains, and lanyards are great, usable options that cost very little but go a long way!
F|Staff Swag: The F|Staff store is fully stocked with fun and useful holiday gear, along with all the other great swag that’s available all year round. The F|Staff shop even has fun swag for your favorite future driver.
Whatever gifts you choose for the drivers in your life, we hope you all get to enjoy the gift of togetherness this holiday season. May your last few days of 2020 be merry and bright, and may you find joy and peace in the new year.
