2021 Holiday Gift Guide for Truckers
The holiday season is officially here, which means if you have not started your holiday shopping, well then you are already behind! However, for the truck drivers and road trippers, SleepDog® is here to help. We specialize in products geared towards truckers, travelers and anyone looking to enhance their on-the-road travel experience. With that in mind, we put together a SleepDog® Holiday Gift Guide that includes some of our favorite gift ideas that will maximize comfort for anyone spending significant time on the road.
1. SleepDog® Mattresses
If you want to go big with your gift, you can’t go wrong with a SleepDog® mattress. With SleepDog®, you are not just buying a mattress, you are investing in a bed, an on-the-go office and a true source of comfort and relaxation for the truck drivers in your life. We offer two different DOT approved mattress constructions to meet the needs of every sleeper – the SleepDog® Mattress and the BigDawg Mattress™.
The SleepDog® Mattress is a 7” memory foam mattress construction made with multiple layers to create a medium-firm feel. The top layer of memory foam is infused with CoolRest® technology that will not only contour to your body to minimize motion transfer, but will also keep you sleeping cool night after night.
For the sleepers who prefer a more plush mattress, the BigDawg Mattress™ is the perfect choice. Our best-selling mattress is a double sided mattress built with 9” of memory foam; the additional 2” include the quilted foam cover on the soft support side. The BigDawg mattress™ mattress is constructed so that it can be flipped for soft or firm support. This mattress features contouring CoolRest® memory foam on the softer side and SureAlign® support foam on the firmer side. The combination of these foams will perfectly relieve pressure points and align your spine in any sleep position.
2. Sojoy iGelComfort
Many truck drivers will admit that sitting in the driver’s seat for extended periods of time is not always comfortable. That’s where the Sojoy iGelComfort seat cushion comes in. At under $50, this seat cushion is designed to provide additional comfort to help relieve back pain or tailbone discomfort. In fact, this seat cushion is praised in the trucking and transportation industry for its ability to accomplish just that. The gel material is crafted to ensure the cushion retains a long-lasting shape without deformation and to increase air circulation to your chair surface. It comes with a removable zipper cover that features a non-slip friction bead grip bottom surface to prevent sliding. The removable zipper cover is, also, water-proof.
3. Aotto Portable Food Warmer
Food is an incredibly important aspect of a truck driver’s or traveler’s journey and meals can become a significant expense if you are continually relying on truck stops and restaurants. This makes a portable slow cooking oven a great gift idea! A portable food warmer can help you cook delicious and nutritious meals right in the cab of your truck. The Aotto portable food warmer, in particular, functions like a slow cooker and it comes with a built-in temperature regulator. The Aotto food warmer is compatible with 110V outlets found on truck inverters and features a rectangular base that keeps it upright while on the move.
4. 3" CoolRest® Topper
If your trucker needs a mattress upgrade, but a new mattress is not in the holiday budget, SleepDog® also offers mattress accessories that can improve the comfort of his or her current sleep setup. One of our most popular sleep accessories is our 3” CoolRest® mattress topper. This topper features 3” of the same gel memory foam used on the top layer of both SleepDog® and BigDawg mattresses designed to help cushion your sleep. The CoolRest® topper is available with or without a knit Tencel® cover and comes in most standard mattress sizes, including an RV sleeper size.
5. Glaciertex Cooling Pillow
Our innovative Glaciertex Cooling pillow is designed to take your sleep to the next level. Using thermoregulation technology woven into the fabric, the Glaciertex will feel cool to the touch and is engineered to keep you cool throughout the night. The Glaciertex is made with a special LOFT-X™ foam to provide proper alignment for your head and neck. The Glaciertex is available in queen/standard or king/California king sizes depending on pillow preference!
6. Sleep Tite® Pr1me® Terry Protector
For a mattress that functions as a bed, an office chair and a couch inside of a sleeper cab or travel trailer, a mattress protector becomes incredibly important in preserving the quality of the mattress itself. We suggest gifting a Pr1me® Terry mattress protector to anyone with a semi truck sleeper, camper or RV who does not already use one! A top-of-the-line product, the Pr1me® Terry protector offers a breathable top of mattress protection with a hypoallergenic and absorbent cotton terry surface. It features a liquid-proof membrane that functions as a barrier against allergens and dust mites.
7. EpicVue Direct TV
Is your truck driver looking for more on-the-road entertainment? The EpicVue Direct TV is a great gift idea that provides truck drivers with high-quality satellite TV wherever they go. EpicVue is at the forefront of the industry in satellite TV technology, offering various subscription packages that can allow truck drivers to keep up with all of their favorite shows even when they are on the road. The equipment package comes with a flat screen TV, the satellite dome and the Direct TV receiver. Truck drivers across the nation rave about their EpicVue TVs, stating that they would not want to travel without it.
What better way to show your loved ones you care by sharing the gift of comfort? For truck drivers who maintain lifestyles with unique needs and conditions, any practical gift idea to make life on the road more comfortable will be appreciated. At the end of the day, any of the products in our gift guide will make a difference in their day-to-day downtime.
