Best Gifts for Truck-Driving Moms

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12. Are you ready? Have you thought about what to get your favorite truck-driving lady?
Show her you care with the perfect gift – or gifts! – this Mother’s Day. These gifts were selected to simplify life and maximize comfort while on the road, but they’re also great gifts for any of the women in your life – even if they don’t drive a truck.

Bluetooth Headset

A wireless Bluetooth headset should be comfortable and make it easy to make or take calls from the road. PCMag.com has reviewed a variety to help pick the right one for mom.

Compression Socks

Compression socks boost blood circulation for those long hours spent sitting behind the wheel. They now come in a wide variety of fun colors and patterns so get a few pairs.

Diffuser

Help mom keep the truck cab smelling good with a car diffuser and invigorating essential oils to stay focused while driving.

Fleece Jacket

Having a fleece jacket will always come in handy. This one from L.L.Bean comes in fun colors and has great reviews.

Electronic Reader

Perfect for readers, the Kindle Paperwhite is light and portable enough to keep in a handbag.

Key Tracker

A Tile tracker is great because mom will always know where her keys are, but they can be attached to anything someone is prone to losing.

Load Board

Mom should have the best, and the best load board is from Truckstop.com. Basic search and posting is just $39 a month. If she already has it, upgrade her to Pro which comes with Fuel Desk, Rate Mate, Real-Time Updates, and more for just $149 a month.

Portable Battery Charger

A portable battery charger is always good to have on hand, especially in the event of bad weather or some kind of emergency. This one from Anker has great reviews and is very reasonable. This one from BioLite also works as a lantern when you need one.

Silk Pillowcase

Silk pillowcases are a great alternative to cotton because silk may help prevent breakouts and reduce the amount of hair breakage that occurs while you sleep.

Polarized Sunglasses

Glare from the setting sun causes thousands of accidents every year. Get a great pair of polarized sunglasses specifically designed for driving to help keep mom safe.

Sunrise Alarm Clock

Sunrise simulation alarm clocks can help mom wake up feeling more refreshed. They are known to improve sleep, energy, and well-being.

USB Car Charger

A USB car charger that will charge multiple devices at once are handy to have in any moving vehicle. Anker makes a ton with good reviews.

Water Bottle

The Yeti Rambler comes in fun colors and will keep water cold or coffee hot for all the drive time mom is logging.

Weighted Sleep Mask

Help mom get a good night of sleep with a weighted sleep mask like this one from NodPod.
