Post Date - Nov 18, 2022

Are you shopping for a truck driver this holiday season? Finding just the right gift can feel a little overwhelming, so Boyd Bros. Transportation has done the research for you! Here are some of our favorite gifts for truckers this year. All of these items can be purchased on Amazon for your convenience:

1. Cordless, rechargeable handheld vacuum

A handheld vacuum is so helpful for cleaning up small messes and keeping a cab clean. This one is cordless, which is incredibly convenient, and runs on a rechargeable battery. It also includes a carrying bag so it can be easily stored somewhere in the rig.

2. Hanging toiletry bag

Help the trucker in your life stay more organized with a hanging toiletry bag! This particular one keeps toiletries organized and visible with multiple compartments, zippered mesh pockets and side pockets with elastic loops for extra security. It’s also durable and water resistant, so it’s the perfect place to transport toiletries from the truck to the shower.

3. Multitool

Multitools are extremely useful to truck drivers because there’s a limited amount of storage space in the truck, but many scenarios where tools are needed. This Leatherman multitool is 14 tools in one, including a knife, pliers, screwdrivers, and a ruler.

4. Lumbar support cushion

Truck drivers spend a lot of time sitting behind the wheel of a truck, which commonly causes chronic back pain. Using a lumbar support cushion like this one will go a long way to prevent lower back pain and make the drive a lot more comfortable.

5. Muscle massager

A portable massager is really convenient and can alleviate pain points that are common for truck drivers. This muscle massager can help with muscle recover, reduce muscle pain and fatigue, improve range of motion and flexibility, help with muscle stiffness, encourage blood flow, and more.

6. Large rechargeable flashlight

Truckers don’t get to choose when and where their trucks break down. A large flashlight like this one is a must-have for inspecting the truck and fixing issues in the dark or in inclement weather. This light has three brightness modes plus a warning light for use in fog and haze.

7. Beanie with headlamp

A headlamp is a perfect gift for truckers to use at night inside their cab.

It’s rechargeable and comes in lots of fun colors. Best of all, it’s soft and warm with adjustable brightness levels for when a driver needs to get out of the cab and is very visible in cold weather or after dark.

8. Telescoping magnetic pickup tool

Most truck drivers know how to do some basic maintenance on their truck because it saves them time and money. A magnetic pickup tool like this one can come in handy to easily retrieve dropped items including nails, screws, nuts, and bolts.

9. Polarized sunglasses

Polarized sunglasses are a must for truck drivers all year long. Not only will it protect drivers’ eyes from the sun, but it will also help prevent glare and the brightness from sunlight which often leads to visibility issues and creates a safety hazard.

10. Trucker socks

These socks make the perfect stocking stuffer and they’re bound to get a good laugh too. With trucks printed in assorted colors, and the message TRUST ME, I'M A TRUCK DRIVER on the sole of the socks, these crew length, unisex design is fun for all the truckers out there. Bonus: No fading and they hold up well in the laundry!

11. Work gloves

Every truck driver needs at least two good pairs of work gloves and these from Carhartt are a great choice. They’re made of durable cotton with synthetic leather palm and suede cowhide palm patches to keep trucker’s hand protected no matter what the job calls for.

12. Trucker-themed travel mug

This stainless-steel travel mug is perfect for your trucker’s morning coffee. It includes a leak resistant lid and has double-walled vacuum-insulated technology so hot drinks stay hot for up to eight hours while cold drinks remain cold up to 24 hours.

13. Front seat organizer

Help your truck driver stay more organized with a front seat organizer. They’ll be able to keep their tablet, computer and other devices, paperwork, writing utensils, documentation, and other important items within reach for easy access.
