Life as a truck driver can be lonely at times. When it comes to holidays and birthdays, a gift that will make your loved-one's life on the road more comfortable or entertaining is likely to be the most appreciated.

CDs and Audiobooks

Truck drivers spend many hours alone on the road. Although the radio can provide a source of entertainment, the play lists can often be repetitive after several hours. Purchase a CD of classic rock driving songs that will liven up his journey. If he already owns a vast collection of music, an audiobook may be a suitable alternative. From a sci-fi fantasy story, classic tale or lighthearted comedy, audiobooks come in a vast range of genres to suit all tastes and personalities.

Advanced Bluetooth Device

Although the truck driver in your life may already possess a standard Bluetooth so that he can make and receive calls hands-free and legally, there are many newer advanced models on the market that feature a range of practical, improved features. Select a model that allows him to send SMS messages via voice activation to save the hassle of pulling over his truck when he needs to send to a text message.

Novelty Themed Gifts

If you would prefer to select a lighthearted gag gift, many joke stores and online sites offer a vast selection. A trucker-themed T-shirt that features a slogan such as "Born to Roam" or a "Mother Truckers" hat are humorous gifts that he will appreciate. Alternatively, a novelty beverage holder, key ring or bumper sticker are inexpensive options that can be compiled together into a themed gift basket.

12v Accessories

There are many gadgets available that can be plugged into the cigarette lighter of a truck. For truckers who are trying to adopt a healthier diet, a 12v cooker will allow him to heat up leftover meals or warm up healthy soups. For female truckers who still like to look glam, select 12v hair straighteners so she can refresh her style at the service station. For winter months, a 12v heater will keep the truck warm during breaks or long waits at the borders.
