Best Gifts for Truck Drivers

Truck with Gifts. Best Gifts for Truckers

Any day is a good day to get the trucker in your life a gift. It doesn’t have to a special occasion like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day or Mother’s, or a birthday either. Because life on the road tends to wear down supplies and accessories faster than most travelers, your favorite essential worker out there on the road will appreciate your thoughtful gift. So, get ready to make a trucker’s day with one of our 10 Best Gifts for Truck Drivers.


A truck’s front window gets blasted by sunlight, especially on south and southwest routes. A quality sun visor can make a big difference in the driving experience. Lesser made sun visors can fade and tear from excessive sunlight or break from constantly being moved around. You might be surprised at how often truck drivers need a new sun visor, which always makes it a quality gift.

Idea starters:

WeatherTech® – Windshield Sunshade

Exceptional UV protection. Designed to prevent frost build-up in the winter. Can be easily removed and secured.

 Intro-Tech® CH-927-G – Custom Auto Shade™

 Multi-layered material with a gold metalized outer film that reflects harmful UV rays. Proven to reduce the inside temperature up to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Designed to be easy to roll up and stow.


Like sunshades, a quality pair of sunglasses make a huge difference in the truck driving experience. Imagine how many sunglasses you go through a year, and then imagine that for someone whose work-life is on the road. Quality eyewear is vital for truck drivers, not only for protection from the sun but also from working in and around trucks every day.

Idea Starters:

Wiley X Valor Matte Black Frame with Grey, Clear, and Light Rust Lenses

These tactical sunglasses will protect your eyes from pollen and dust, making them perfect for traveling through a variety of locations. They allow 14 to 20 percent of light to enter your eyes. The sunglasses’ lenses come in a smoke gray color, meaning colors will not be distorted.

Serengeti Maestrale Sunglasses

Serengeti Nuvola Sunglasses for Men are optimized for active wear, with an exceedingly nimble frame design and supple, lightweight construction.

Seat Organizer

It should come as no surprise that truckers have a lot of small items in their cabs that are easily misplaced or end up in a hard-to-reach space. A seat organizer is a perfect give to keep your favorite trucker driver organized and less stressed about locating the only pen around.

Idea starters:

RoadPro RPSB-14BK Black 14-Pocket Seat-Back Organizer

Just about all truckers sleep in the cabs, and nothing feels better than a perfect pillow. And since one of the most important aspects of being a professional truck driver is a good night’s sleep, gifting a quality pillow is just the thing.

Idea starters:

Coop Home Goods Adjustable Pillow

Adjustable Loft Pillow – Hypoallergenic Cross-Cut Memory Foam Fill – Lulltra Washable Cover from Bamboo Derived Rayon.

AmazonBasics Down

It offers exceptional comfort and support; plusher than firm, this density is ideal for stomach and back sleepers. Down alternative fill for a plush feel; ideal for allergy sufferers. 100% microfiber shell provides a smooth finish and superior softness

Tire Pressure Gauge

Tires may be the most important factor in truck safety. Truck drivers are constantly monitoring tire pressure during hauls. Temperature changes, altitude changes, road conditions, and time between stops all factor into tire pressure variations. A reliable, accurate, and durable tire pressure gauge is among the key equipment a trucker owns.

Idea starters:

OEM Tools® – 0 to 175 psi Digital Tire Pressure Gauge

Easy-to-Read Backlit LCD Display. Oil Resistant Anti-Shock Rubber Housing Cover. 

VIAIR 00042 Digital Tire Inflation Gauge

Blue backlight allows for easy reading, and it comes with batteries. It has a built-in pressure release valve and a 12-inch Rubber Air hose with a clamp-on tire chuck.

Portable/Cordless Vacuum

It should come as no surprise that a lot happens in a truck driver’s cab during hauls. Eating, drinking, dirt, dust, and just about everything else ends up on the floor. Most truckers like to keep their work area clean, and that means vacuuming often. A quality hand-held cordless vacuum becomes an excellent gift.

Idea starters:

BLACK+DECKER dustbuster Handheld Vacuum, Cordless, 16V

Lithium-Ion for long battery life and outstanding performance; Always ready holds a charge for up to 18 months. Cyclonic action helps to keep the filter clean and power strong, translucent bagless dirt bowl easy to see dirt and empty.

Shark handheld 120v

15-foot power cord increases the slack to reach more area, and the ergonomic shaping makes this hand vac easy and comfortable to hold. A TruePet motorized brush, crevice tool, dusting brush, and extended-reach hose add to the versatility of this vacuum.

Slow Cooker

Even though today’s truck drivers are tempted to eat at any fast-food restaurant along their route, many truckers like to eat healthier on the road. One way to ensure healthy meals is with a slow cooker. Not only are meals easy to make, but truckers also get more than one meal from each pot. Gifting a slow cooker means you know your favorite trucker driver is eating well out there.

Idea starters:

RoadPro-RPSL-350 Quart Slow Cooker

Plugs directly into the 12-Volt power port. Stoneware crock is removable and dishwasher safe. Black cooker base with easy-grip handles. Glass lid with a stretch cord to keep the lid secure while traveling. Warms/cooks between 140° and 170° F.

Seat Cushion

Because truck drivers are stationary for long periods of time, the type of seat and the quality of the seat cushion affect their physical health. Lower back pain, neck, and shoulder pain can all be a result of poor support. Truckers tend to go through seat cushions quicker than other drivers, making a new seat cushion a thoughtful gift.

Idea starters:

Combines pure memory foam and heat-responsive technology to improve your posture and keeps you supported while sitting for long periods. Soft yet firm, our office chair cushion adapts to the contours of your body to create a truly customized fit
