Shopping for a truck driver can be challenging because you know they spend most of the time on the road. The best thing to do is to put yourself in their place and ask yourself what things would make your life easier if you were on the road a lot. To help get you thinking about what to buy, check out our top 8 gifts for truck drivers.

1. Semi-Truck Mattress

Having a nice soft or firm semi-truck mattress to sleep on after driving all day is a perfect gift to give. Since everyone has their own mattress comfort level, opt for a gift card to cover the cost of the mattress so your favorite trucker can choose their preferred comfort level.


2. GPS/Smartphone Dash Mount

Keep truck drivers safe while driving with a dash mount to hold their GPS or smartphone and help them drive hands-free.


3. Laptop Stand and Mount

Since a desk won’t fit easily into a semi-truck, a laptop stand and mount are the next best thing. They secure the laptop in place and make using it easier.


4. Semi-Truck Seats

Giving the gift of a new, comfortable seat with the latest features like heat, massage, and cooling can be a great gift for a truck driver.

5. Mini Refrigerator

Having access to cold beverages and being able to store food allows truckers to make healthier drink and meal choices.


6. Slow Cooker

A slow cooker is a wonderful gift because truck drivers can put what they want to eat for dinner in the slow cooker before they hit the road. At the end of the day, when they are tired and ready to eat, their fresh meal will be ready and waiting.


7. Blankets

Extra blankets go a long way, especially in the winter months. It can get cold in the cab, so having some extra blankets to keep warm is a good gift idea.


8. Satellite Radio and Subscription

Satellite radio is a great way to access a wide range of music, news, sports, and talk-radio stations. It is perfect for truckers so they don’t have to try to scan stations constantly as they are driving down the road.

Update Your Semi-Truck with These Interior Semi-Truck Accessories

As a truck driver, you spend countless hours on the road behind the wheel. It makes perfect sense to want to update your semi-truck with the right interior semi-truck accessories rather than having to buy a brand new truck.


Between the long hours driving, sleeping, eating, and finding time to stay in contact with family and friends, you spend a huge amount of time in your truck cab. You should determine what accessories for semi-truck drivers could make your life easier and more comfortable—like these:


Truck Mattresses

Get a good night’s sleep with a new, thick, plush, and comfortable truck mattress. There are plenty of sizes and styles to choose from, including InnerSpace Luxury Series mattress and Bostrom + Serta Series mattresses. Being well-rested helps ensure you won’t drive drowsy.




Truck Seat Upholstery Cushion Covers

If your truck seats are looking a little worn but still have some life left in them, new upholstery cushion covers can bring added comfort and back support and give your seats a new look. There is a wide variety of sizes and colors, so it is easy to find the right ones to fit your truck seats.


Custom Truck Seats

If your truck seats are no longer comfortable, you may want to look at replacing them with brand new custom truck seats. Customization allows you to choose the features and options you want the most in your seat. For instance, you may want leather heated and ventilated (cooled) seats with lower back lumbar support, massage features, and dual rest arms.

5 Truck & Trailer Exterior Accessories Every Truck Needs

Having a comfortable ride when driving a semi-truck is important to ensure you do not get drowsy or distracted while driving. While you probably have the interior of your semi-truck decked out with all the comforts you deserve, you also need to make sure the exterior of your truck is equally outfitted with the right semi-truck exterior accessories.


1. Backup Cameras and Alarms

It is difficult to see what is behind you, and this is where backup cameras and alarms help. The camera allows you to see behind the trailer when backing up. The alarm alerts others nearby that you are backing up so they stay clear.

2. RoadWatch Safety Sensors

This device monitors the air and ground temperatures so you will always know road conditions. This is a must-have accessory if you drive in areas that get snow and ice. You will know if road conditions are deteriorating and find somewhere safe to stop.


3. Heated and Convex Truck Mirrors

Heated mirrors keep ice and snow off of them so you have a clear view in cold winter weather. Convex truck mirrors help reduce the blind spots on the left and ride side of your truck. You can see when a motorist is next to the trailer or truck.


4. Light Kits and Light Strips

Every semi-truck and trailer has minimum lighting requirements. Yet, you can go above and beyond these requirements by adding more lights and light strips to the exterior. The more lights you have, the easier it is for other drivers to see you when driving at night, in the rain, or through fog.

5. Exterior Hose, Wire, and Cable Tracker Bars

These bars attach to the rear of the cab. They help you keep hoses, wires, and cables organized while reducing the risks of damage. Not to mention, when the hoses, wires, and cables are organized, it makes it easier and faster to connect them to a trailer.
