Truck for a hero section

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” and there is less and less time to search for gifts for your family and friends. Perhaps there are truckers among them. Then we have some ideas for useful gifts that will show drivers that you are grateful for what they do and care about them.

12V cooler

For a trucker who is usually away doing long-haul loads, a portable refrigerator is a must-have. A 12V portable cooler can be charged from a truck’s cigarette lighter and it helps a trucker stay healthy by not buying junk food.

GPS device

If you decide to buy a new GPS navigator for your trucker, please note that it must be designed for truck drivers. Such device can help to plan a trip based on the size and weight of a truck, show traffic updates and fuel prices, and provide information about nearby restaurants and truck stops.

Portable Stove

Like a portable cooler, this stove plugs into the average 12V lighter socket and warms food up to 300°. It takes about 30-40 minutes to reheat a chilled dish. But it’s worth it, especially in winter.

Orthopedic Seat Cushion 

Most of the trucker’s day is spent in the driver’s seat.  And it is not really ergonomic. The orthopedic cushion helps by aligning the spine to maintain a healthy posture and support a proper blood circulation. It is a perfect present for anyone who is driving long distances in the truck.

Work Boots

Every truck driver needs a good pair of work boots. For example, Timberland White Ledge is waterproof, has rubber soles and leather exterior, good grip, and arch support. So your trucker won’t struggle with cold and wet feet. 

Polarized sunglasses

The glare from the sun is making it much harder to see the road ahead and creating an added risk to truckers. Polarized sunglasses can solve this problem. They effectively block the UV light, protecting drivers’ eyes and keeping them safe. At the same time, they are not distorting.

Seat-Mounted Organizer for Trucks

For those who like to keep things tidy and organized, such a seat-mounted organizer will be the perfect gift. It keeps everything the driver may need at hand. It has room for laptops, tablets, medication, bills of lading, registration information, maps, phone chargers, flashlight, and more.

A Blackout Sleep Mask

Insomnia is a huge problem for most truck drivers. In order to improve a sleep routine, it is important to create a comfortable environment for rest. A blackout sleep mask is a gift that can help a trucker to have a good nap or a restful night sleep without distractions.

Leather Work Gloves

Trucker’s hands need support and protection too. A pair of quality leather gloves can absorb road vibrations and protect against extreme weather conditions. Not to mention that a trucker wearing a pair of leather gloves looks really great.

Small everyday things

If you’re looking for a small but useful gift, there are plenty to choose from. It can be an insulated yeti mug, a personalized keychain, anti-sleep alarm for drivers, phone mount, personalized mud flaps, some funny custom socks, a stylish truckers hat, and even an emergency urinal.

As the truck driver recruiting agency's CEO, I deeply understand the unique challenges and demands truck drivers face.

Drawing from my extensive work experience, I bring knowledge in truck driver recruitment, logistics, and transportation management. I possess a comprehensive understanding of industry regulations, safety standards, and best practices, ensuring that the agency adheres to the highest standards of professionalism and compliance.

Now, looking back and remembering my path from the very beginning, it seems to me that this story is a lifetime. During all these years of development and growth of our agency, I took part in no less interesting projects in which my experience, knowledge and vision were needed. And I was also able to gain new skills, contacts and experience by participating in the development of these projects from various fields, such as cargo transportation, trucking companies, e-commerce, parcel delivery and much more! But the best is yet to come!
