Sometimes it may seem a puzzle to decide on a gift for Father’s Day for a truck driver. Here are some awesome suggestions sure to remain in anyone’s budget while still making sure they will be useful while out on the job.
The Trucker Path Pro App which allows a truck driver to know details such as which truck stops have vacancies, which are full, fuel prices, and weigh station status. Path Pro details provide information on at least 9 areas helpful for a trucker such restaurants, hotels, DOT inspections, repair shops, dealer centers, and Walmarts. This is sure to be Dad’s shiny new app for months to come, not to mention making his trucking life easier. Make sure there are maps for the dead service zones he may encounter from time to time.
Update that first aid kit he’s been meaning to improve on for his truck. Now the kit will finally be satisfactory and worries will be diminished. This can most likely be accomplished for less than $25.
Purchase new sheets for the cab mattress, ($27), and other touches of home. Add notes or children’s hand-drawn pictures plus a folder to keep the drawings in.
Craft a gift picture album of photos of the family. Include the wedding picture and photos of the kids at each stage of their lives. Add new photos, unbeknownst to him, each week.
Fill up his fridge or cooler with healthy snacks, approximately ($30.00), that he enjoys, so there will be less eating from convenience stores and truck stops.
Buy him with an electric blanket, starting at $31 at Target, with a long cord for an easy plugin for those cool nights. Be sure and also include an inverter which can be handy for other things as well.
Don’t forget the pillows that would feel great night after night.
Another good safety item, so those all-important conversations don’t need to be postponed on the road, would be to purchase a hands-free headset for $16.95 at Walmart for his cell phone to prevent distractions and tickets while driving.
Purchase a tire pressure monitoring system so Dad can see at a glance which tires need air to improve his safety and also save time in inclement weather. Despite the sophisticated sound, most vary in price to fit any budget, ranging from $15 to $50.
