It’s that time of year once again where truckers all across America are scratching their heads wondering what they’re going to get for Christmas from their wives or girlfriends. A tie? New socks? shirts and pants? A lump of coal? God only knows.
This year, make sure your woman gives you a gift that you can actually use, and let her know that just because you’re a trucker, doesn’t mean that you’re going to jump up and down at the sight of a new cordless drill. With this in mind, we here at GlobalTrucker.com have compiled a top 10 list of trucker gifts for the upcoming holidays.
10. Sleeper Cab Fans - These fans will operate at one of three preselected speeds when the thermostat calls for cooler air. Once the thermostat is satisfied, the fan shuts off automatically. Designed to ensure consistent temperatures. Perfect for use when you leave your pets behind or while sleeping.
9. Fire Extinguishers - You can never be too prepared when it comes to safety, especially when a fire breaks out. This class B & C dry chemical fire extinguisher from Kidde is just what you need. Fitted with an easy to read pressure gauge and 6 year warranty you should be safe from fires for years to come.
8. Maps and Atlases - These have been the old stand-by for truckers for years and years. With a wide variety of maps and atlases to choose from , you should never get lost the next time you hop into your rig.
7. CB Radios - Don’t let your man or woman get stuck in a traffic jam without a good CB radio on hand to acquire the critical they need. We carry all the major brands including Cobra, Uniden, Ranger, Galaxy and Connex.
6. Trucking Manufacturer Hitch Covers - Give the gift of personalization with one of these custom made hitch covers for cars and trucks. Choose from Peterbilt, Kenworth or Freightliner models.
5. 12 Volt Heaters - Winter is almost here and any truck driver would love to have a good heater. These sure come in handy if your truck heater decides to play out when its about 15 degrees outside. They also help cut down on idling fuel costs because you won’t have to have the truck running for these to operate.
4. Locking Gas Caps - Need I say more? Well ok then. We all know its a mean world we leave in and its a shame, but you can help protect your precious fuel with one of these fuel theft deterrents.
3. Seat Cushions - Every truck driver needs a good, comfortable seat to sit on especially when they are sitting 8-10 hours a day. This polyvinyl seat cushion by Airhawk is by far our most popular seat cushion to date. It helps reduce the impact and vibration of the truck while driving and increases comfort at the same time. If this isn’t enough for you, it’s also tax deductible for owner-operators.
2. 12 Volt Cookers - Every trucker out there knows its hard to find a good home cooked meal out on the road. So why not surprise them with a 12 volt cooker to help take a piece of home with them when they leave. They can take Sundays leftovers with them on Monday morning and heat them up in the truck that evening.
1. Gift Cards - Still not sure what to get them, why not get them a Global Trucker gift card. With over 12,000 items (including sports gifts) to choose from, I’m sure they won’t have any trouble finding something they like.
