Are you wondering what to get your favorite female truck driver as a gift?
Buy your lady trucker a personalized key chain, a coffee mug with a truck, a shower bag, bedding, socks, a flashlight, leather gloves, and a Kindle Fire Tablet.
With Mother's Day right around the corner, it's never been a better time to provide you with some great ideas. At the time of this writing, all gifts are listed under $50.
Although these gift ideas can be used for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, or just because "I LOVE YOU!"
As a woman truck driver, I would love every one of these gifts.
If that particular lady trucker in your life is a cat lover, she would enjoy a key chain that can be shared with you. Both of you get to keep a matching half. I bet her fur baby is like one of her kids.
Give her a special gift from your heart. Have a keychain engraved with photos of her loved ones, children, or grandchildren, including her fur babies. If she loves her truck, get a picture of her beautiful rig and have it engraved on a keychain or pendant.
2. Coffee Mug
Buy your woman trucker an insulated travel mug. This 20 oz tumbler coffee mug is double-walled and vacuum insulated. It has a lid to keep your loved one from spilling coffee everywhere as she drives across the country. By the way, purple is my favorite color.
Your female trucker might enjoy a personalized coffee mug. Add her name or a quote she loves. She will think of you whenever she drinks from this beautiful mug.
3. Shower Bag with Personal Hygiene Items
Every Female Trucker needs a shower bag.
A small duffel bag would be great for carrying clothes and other shower items when she gets ready to shower at a truck stop.
Add a large cosmetic bag that can hold shampoo, conditioners, soaps, lotions, and other necessities. I had the unfortunate experience of my shampoo bottle opening while in my bag. All of my clothes were covered in shampoo. I had to go back out to the truck and get new clothes. Since then, I use a large plastic cosmetic bag or a gallon-size Ziploc bag to keep all of my liquid items in.
A small cosmetic bag with goodies such as eye shadow, blush, lipstick, etc.
4. Blow Dryer
A blow dryer would be a great gift idea.
Over the Road Truckers usually take showers at a truck stop.
Most truck stops provide towels, some provide blow-dryers, while others provide neither.
If your lady trucker has long, beautiful hair, make sure to get her a small blow dryer for those occasions the truck stop does not supply one.
5. Flip Flops
While we are on showers, your beautiful lady trucker can always use a cute pair of flip-flops specially made for wearing in the shower.
Although truck stops clean the showers after each customer, you can never be too careful.
You don't want her getting athletes' feet.
6. Mesh Laundry Bag
A mesh laundry bag would provide her with a place to keep her dirty clothes separate from her clean clothes.
7. An Electric Razor
Buy your loved one an electric razor to shave her legs without having to take a shower.
A great gift, especially during the summer, when she wants to wear shorts.
8. Polarized Sunglasses
Any trucker would love to have a pair of Polarized Sunglasses. These glasses help protect her eyes from the damaging rays of the sun.
Even consider a pair of night vision glasses that help her to see objects more clearly in the dark.
As a female trucker, I like to change my sheets every few days.
As for sheets, make sure to get the twin XL. Most trucks have longer mattresses. And the electric heating blanket should have a 12-volt plug-in unless she has an inverter in her truck.
10. Power Inverter
A power inverter is an excellent gift for any trucker that does not have an AC outlet, like the ones you generally see in homes. While prices range from as low as twenty dollars to over several hundred dollars, here are some that come in under our $50 range.
Any trucker needs a good road atlas. Rand McNally's Trucker Road Atlas comes in at just under $50.
The Trucker's version features truck compliance rules, such as bridge weight formulas, pre-trip inspection guidelines, information for oversize vehicles, and state phone numbers for obtaining permits. The atlas even provides information for Hazardous Materials, city to city mileage, and it doesn't even need batteries.
The Trucker's version is held together by a rigid spiral binding, enabling the user to fold it in half for easier handling. This atlas also features laminated pages that can be written on with sharpies and easily erased with a wet wipe.

While many people would not think to give a woman a pair of gloves as a gift, your lady is not just any woman, she is a Female Truck Driver!
Aside from my road atlas, I think the most used item in my truck is my gloves.
A good pair of gloves keeps my hands from getting all greasy and dirty while hooking to a trailer. They also protect my hands from cuts and scratches that are likely to happen while working on a truck.
While there are many to choose from, I prefer a pair of leather gloves like the Wells Lamont Premium Leather Gloves. They are soft on the inside and tough on the outside.
13. Compression Socks
Compression socks help to apply pressure to your lower legs. They are designed for people who sit a lot or who travel on airplanes. Most truckers ride 10-11 hours daily, and they have very little time to walk around. Compression socks help keep the blood flowing through the lower extremities.
Compression socks have a wide array of styles to choose from. I am sure you can find some that your mom would love.
14. Electronic Travel Organizer Bag
If your lady is like me, she has all kinds of cords for charging phones and iPad. These organizer bags provide plenty of space to store cords, adapters, headphones, external hard drives, and other travel necessities.
Any truck driver would love to have one with six different colors to choose from and three different sizes.
15. Rechargeable Flash Light
Truckers always need to keep a flashlight close by. Even though many cell phones have built-in flashlights, holding a small rechargeable flashlight is easier while working on a truck.
has a super bright flashlight that fits comfortably in the palm of my hand. This flashlight is rechargeable, so there is no need to buy batteries every few weeks. It is compact and water resistant.
Don't let your trucker get caught out in the dark, having to hook up to a trailer.
I have provided you with a selection of gifts for that Female Trucker in your life, all under $50.
From key chains, coffee mugs, leather gloves, and duffle bags.
I hope you have found the perfect gift for the lady in your life.
