5 Top Gift Ideas for the Truck-Driving Dad


Father’s Day is fast approaching. Because many a dad is on the road for days (or weeks) on end driving that big rig, here are 5 perfect gifts for the truck-driving dad:

Yeti Rambler tumbler

The Yeti Rambler 30-ounce stainless steel vacuum insulated tumbler comes with a shatter-proof lid to prevent those untimely spills. The double-walled vacuum insulation keeps hot beverages hot and cold beverages cold. The 18/8 stainless steel body is puncture and rust resistant and dishwasher safe. The Yeti Rambler is 7 5/8 inches high, with a 4-inch diameter –perfect for a standard-size cup holder. Available from Amazon for $29.99.

Bucket Boss Contractor’s Briefcase

The Bucket Boss Contractor’s Briefcase is made of a sturdy 600D poly material and includes a sleeve for both a laptop and an iPad. The briefcase has 15 interior pockets and a rear pocket to give plenty of room for those important documents or other must-have travel items. A handy, detachable shoulder strap makes carrying the briefcase simple and comfortable. Available through Amazon for $30.86.

T-shirts

An old standby, t-shirts are always a favorite for Dad. Let’s be honest, there are about a gazillion (yes, that is a real word) different t-shirts available for the truck-driving dad with enough sayings, pictures, logos, and different designs to please almost anyone. A simple internet search for “t-shirts for truck drivers” will bring up more than 30 million different options, with prices ranges from $9.99 to $29.99.

Satechi Portable Humidifier

A bottle of purified water is all you need to attach to the Satechi Portable Humidifier to make the dry air inside the cab of the truck or the sleeper compartment much more comfortable. The Satechi connects to the USB port on a computer and uses just 2 watts of power. Satechi fits most purified water bottles, or it can be place atop a glass (just make sure the filter is submerged). When finished, unplug the Satechi or it automatically shuts off after eight hours. Available on Amazon for $27.99.

Homemade Meals

Eating healthy is always a challenge out on the road, and there’s nothing quite as good as a home-cooked meal. When Dad’s home for that quick turnaround, surprise him with a batch of homemade meals prepared and frozen in microwave safe containers that can easily be popped into the truck microwave. It’s a taste of home when he’s away, and nothing says I Love You more than that meal prepared at home.
