12 Days of Christmas – Gift Ideas for the Trucker in Your Life

Day 3

A clean truck is not just about aesthetics. Of course every trucker wants their truck to look sharp, free of road grime, smudges, spills, water spots, and snow and ice among other things. But it goes beyond just looking good. A clean truck also means a safer truck free of vision obstructions and and fall hazards.

That's why personal, road, and truck safety items are great gift ideas for the trucker in your life. Today I will be covering three simple items to both improve the visual aesthetics of your trucker's rig as well as helping to keep him or her safer out on the road. Win win!

TrukrStik: At first look you are sure to think, “it is just a squeegee!” True, but not JUST. This is made for over-sized vehicles like that 80,000lb semi truck your loved one drives. Having a clear field of vision out the front windshield, side windows, and even outside mirrors is extremely important for road safety. The TrukrStik features a dual-sided squeegee. The large side is curved to hug and clean the front windshield and those rounded convex mirrors streak free! The smaller side perfectly fits the outside windows and mirrors for one-stroke cleaning and no streaks.


The company even offers customization in color and graphics to give this simple item a personal touch. It is small enough to fit right in the door pocket, making for easy and convenient access for quick removal of water, road salt, and road grime that impairs the field of view.
