Do you know a truck driver that you need to buy a gift for? I have gathered the best Christmas gifts for truck drivers so keep on reading to find out what are they. I know a lot of people whose job is truck driving. And I myself travel a lot by bus which is not exactly the same as driving a truck, but from what I’ve seen it’s a really exhausting job. Just to endure all those long hours of sitting and watching the road, especially when driving at night, is tough. Many hours driving can make you feel dizzy, make your back hurt and finally it can make your days and nights merge into some blur with no boundaries. It’s a tough job, physically it is quite demanding. To add all that engine noise, all that gasoline smell. It is simply a no woman job. So if you have someone in your life that is driving truck you really need to make his non road days feel as good as possible. Especially on Christmas time. Your truck driver deserves a nice and caring Christmas gift. I have gathered the best collection of Christmas gifts for truck drivers I could find so check it out, I hope it helps you find the perfect gift for him.
12 Volt Portable Stove For Truck – Make His On-The-Road Meals Feel Like Home Meals
They say: “You are what you eat” and this is especially true when you come to a certain age, usually above 35 years old. Food becomes very important as your body is not as young and vital and needs extra care and intake of good nutrition and vitamins. Truck drivers spend a lot of time on the road and their usual food is fast food or by the road restaurant food. Even though delicious in the beginning, in time this food can become heavy and dull. It is good for a few times a month to have this type of food but it slowly affects one’s health in a bad way. This 12 volt portable stove will enable your truck driver to eat more healthy and make the truck feel more like a home. It can be used with most 12 volt sockets and will allow him to warm food up to 300 degrees. This is perfect for various pre-cooked meals like stews, beans, chops, rice meals, hot dishes/goulash… What I think is the most important thing about this small, very convenient stove for a truck is the ability to make liquid food possible to eat while tasting and smelling good. Our stomach needs liquid food which is hard to provide when living days or even weeks on the road. It is the perfect size, check how it measures against a hamburger. I believe this is one very good and practical gift for any truck driver. And we all know how men appreciate a good meal in life!
Best 12v Cooler For Trucking – One Of The Best Good Christmas Gifts For Truck Drivers
Having a cool drink is essential when driving any kind of vehicle on the road and this is especially true for truck drivers. We all know how much men love their beer cool so this is definitely one of the best pleasures that you can make possible for your truck driver. It will be such a refreshment to grab a cool drink after driving long hours on the road. It will certainly wake him up from the monotony of the road. One detail that surprised me with this product is that you can actually order it with a gift wrap – how convenient is that? So basically this portable cooler can be plugged into the 12 vols cigarette lighter in the truck and start working right away. What I really think is very practical is the fact that this cooler can be used vertically or horizontally. This is so handy considering the space available in the trucks. It can be easily placed inside as it has this nice flexibility. You can see that it can fit a whole big bottle of beverage which is a rare feature with such small coolers. The door is split to allow more easy access to a single food or drink item. This can also come convenient in a tight space. Something else that I have noticed is that inside there are two removable shelves which can hold smaller items like on the image. Another thing that is really useful is that it can switch from a cooler to a warmer with a simple flip of the plug! There is no ice involved as it is a highly advanced technology used in making this cool product. It will cool things as long it is plugged into the vehicle but it can also be enhanced by getting a separate portable power pack, produced by Koolatron, that will keep things cool even when the vehicle is not working. The capacity is to cool things below 40 degrees from outside temperature – which is more than enough even on high temperature weather conditions. I am simply thrilled will all the capabilities of this cooler and I believe it is a perfect Christmas gift for a truck driver!

This is a useful and practical gift for all drivers and especially people who spend a great deal of time behind the wheel, crouched and stiff on their seat for hours. It’s an easy solution for sore back and neck and gives the much needed body refreshment after long hours of driving.

This may not be the fastest and tastiest coffee maker but it is one of the best options (the best I could find on Amazon) for vehicle coffee making. But it will make a decent coffee and it’s a great device for having coffee without stopping or spending money.
Heavy Duty Travel Inflatable Mattress
Nothing compares to having a solid flat surface to put your head on and fall asleep. I know people who can’t sleep unless they put their head in horizontal position. And truly we all sleep best if we have a comfortable horizontal surface to put our body and head to rest. It’s such a practical gift that will serve for year and contribute to the health and road awareness of the driver. A good sleep is crucial for truck drivers and with this gift you’ll be helping them get one.
Wooden Tire Thumper For Checking Tire Inflation
If you don’t fully understand what does a tire thumper do here is a very quick video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMNACzJYWHc You can see that a tire thumper is a necessary tool for a truck driver and getting him a new one (because he probably already has one) will surely please him. And this is a gift that is on the cheaper side so you’ll get him a useful gift and you will stay within your budget limit (hopefully).
12 Volt Car Air Purifier – Check Out All The Harmful Particles That Can Be Removed Written On This Box!
Now this is a gift I would definitely recommend if the truck river doesn’t already have one car air purifier. This is one of those must have items for a truck driver. It can be plugged into the cigarette lighter socket in the truck and it will clean the air in minutes from: all types of natural and chemical toxic and harmful air particles. This is truly priceless! And if you actually check the price it is very affordable for such a health keeper as this one. It’s a very effective air ionizer (air ionisers are used to eliminate the occurrence of air-borne bacterial infections and to reduce static electricity buildup in electronics). A truck driver is always overexposed to harmful air on the road so having a small air purifying device like this one, to clean up the inside area of the truck is something every trucker needs to have. A lot of value in a small gift!
Portable Tv For Truck Drivers – Top Christmas Gifts For Truck Drivers
I have been very careful to choose a small portable TV with a reasonable price and so I have chosen this one: it has many customer reviews, good ratings and the price is affordable to anyone – especially considering this will be a Christmas gift. You know how people spend more and expect more on Christmas. It’s an awesome little TV that will keep him entertained during breaks or necessary waits. Especially if there is a sport game that he loves watching. This TV has a travel size – 7 inches, sharp image on the LCD display and it comes with TV tuner, antena and rechargeable batteries that last about 1.5 – 2 hours. Long enough to be entertained during road breaks or to take it to a road restaurant while having breakfast for example. It can get pretty lonely eating on the road but with this little helper the loneliness and the boredom will reduce ans soften a lot. What I really like about this small TV player is that it is DC powered but comes with AC adapter. This means it can be plugged at home or used in a vehicle. Nice versatility here. It also comes with USB and SD card reader so you can prepare favorite shows and movies for your truck driver and upload them on a stick and just give it to him. You know he will have fun and relax by watching what he really likes. There is a remote controller as well which is kind of cute considering how small the Tv is so I imagine it will always be close to the viewer but it can be really handy when falling asleep with the TV on (great therapy for some people I know). There is a car mount part that allows the TV to be easily attached to the car dashboard which is exactly what we need if making this TV gift for a trucker. A good movie can relax so much, move away the stress and the anxiety from a hard, working day. It’s one of the modern pleasures that are available to us so use this privilege to make a really good gift for a truck driver.
Cobra 29 LX, The Best CB Radio For Truck Drivers, It Reduces Loneliness And Allows Instant Help From Other Truckers While On The Road
A CB radio is a must have for truckers. Here is a great video for better understanding what is the role of a CB radio in a truckers life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9ech8aVybE As a truck driver has to have a CB radio you can take care that he has the best possible CB radio. Here are what this Cobra 29 LX CB radio can do for your trucker:
- It has big 4 multi color display – the colors can be switched from bright for daytime drive or dimmed fro night time
- It can scan 40 CB channels (frequencies where CB radio users communicate with each other) with the possibility of stopping when transmission is found
- 24/7 access to 10 national weather channels with the possibility to interrupt a CB communication if emergency arises or even if the CB is turned off. I would say this alone is worth getting this CB radio as information regarding safety is top priority in the life of a truck driver
- It has clock and an alarm and also a on-duty timer for tracking the time required to get to a destination. Drivers always measure this so the on duty timer will make the job easier.
- A CB radio requires antenna which s not included but this system has a very good radio check diagnostic and antenna calibration for making it easier to set things up.
- What your truck driver will love about this CB radio is how far distanced area he can communicate with and how clear his voice will transmit. This is thanks to the 4 watts AM RF power output, the maximum amount of power allowed by law.
- The microphone has 9 foot cord which I believe is enough to reach any part of the truck.
I believe that any truck driver will love this gift. The most precious gifts are things we use everyday and they are most useful to us. I know when I replace something that I have been using for a long time with something better I feel like life has gained so much in quality. Sometimes we don’t even notice those everyday life things that can make our lives feel so much better and easier.
Absolutely The Best Anti-Sleep Alarm
Being too tired to drive is one of the greatest dangers a truck driver is exposed to. Most accidents happen exactly because of lack of attention due to the driver being sleepy. To prevent this many stop sleep systems have been invented and I believe I have found the best one. Check this video to understand how this StopSleep device works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhOIe3HFUwc
So this is a works as a two finger ring that you put on that will measure your electrodermal activity. It has 8 sensors for tracking your body activity.
It has 2 different types of alert:
- first it gives silent warning through vibration when your concentration starts to decline. This is undetectable for a human being and it can alert you even 5 minutes before you enter drowsy driving zone.
- When you are at risk of sleep it gives the vibration alert combined with a sound alert. At this point you must stop the vehicle and get rest or you risk your life and the life of other drivers on the road
- No maintenance is required and you can use it straight out of the box, nothing to assemble or set up
It comes with additional accessories like:
- Gift box
- Plastic storage case
- USB cable
- Car charger adapter
- Wall charger adapter
- Multilanguage manual Drive Alert
- Arrive Alivel
I have to admit it is a bit pricey but when you think about it life is worth so much more. Life on the road is full of dangers so it is best to protect your trucker the best way you can and get the best equipment to do the job.
