‘Tis the season! The holidays are approaching, and fast. It’s a mystical time full of cheer and quality time with our loved ones. But with the holidays comes the inevitable stress of picking out gifts. Especially when your friend or family member is a professional truck driver, finding presents they will both use and enjoy can be difficult. You’re probably panicking a little, wondering what the best gift for a truck driver actually is. Don’t sweat it– we’ve got some ideas that will go the extra mile.
1.Nanopresso Portable Espresso Maker
This might be the best one on this list (provided your giftee is a truck-driving coffee lover, AKA: Jumpy Juice). Having Dunkin or gas station coffee time after time can get old – so this is a simple and efficient way to make delicious coffee anywhere they go! It’s small and easy to clean. And the coolest part? There are no batteries or electricity needed.
2. An Audiobook Membership
Long stretches on the road can be tiresome, so gifting the joy of some much needed entertainment will surely be a hit. Turning on a fun song can help, but sometimes music just doesn’t cut it. It can be better to focus the mind on something scintillating, and since we can’t read while behind the wheel, audiobooks are the next best thing. There are a number of audiobook subscriptions to choose from, such as Audible, Audiobooks, and BookBeat. No matter what you pick, your giftee is sure to love it.
3. Better Habitat Portable Floor Mattress
When it’s time to curl up in the cab for some shut-eye, this portable floor mattress will seem heaven-sent. It’s made of memory foam and comes with a waterproof sheet to keep it all clean, dry and cozy. It rolls up and has some clips for easy storage. Way more convenient than an air mattress, way less time-consuming, and it takes up way less space. Does it get better than this?
4. Snacks Care Package
Sometimes, it’s best to keep it simple. This snack care package will satisfy any munchies that arise and can be a quick fix for a hungry stomach. The standard box comes with fifty different options, from Chex mix to cookies to chips. You can increase the box to as many as 150, so they’ll stay stocked for months. Like we said earlier: snacks are lifeblood.
5. A Deep Tissue Massage Gun
After a long-distance haul, any truck driver is sure to have a myriad of aches and pains after sitting in one position for so long. Whether it be a stiff back, a crick in the neck, or tight shoulders, this deep-tissue massage gun is sure to iron it out. This model has nine different speeds and eight attachments, so there’s no shortage of options.
Now that we’ve given you some pretty solid gift ideas, we hope you’ll use them to spoil your favorite truck driver. For them, the holidays are even more stressful than simple gift-giving. It’s the busiest time of year in the trucking industry, which means lots of driving to keep our shelves stocked, gifts delivered on time and ultimately, Keep America Moving. Make sure you show your appreciation to your modern-day Santa with something thoughtful, and make sure to let us know how they liked it!
