2021 Truck Enthusiast Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are at the door, and if you haven’t done your shopping yet, it’s time to get cruising. While many of the people on your gift list may be easy to shop for, truck enthusiasts can be a bit tricky. They are usually pretty picky about the types of things they buy for their prized investments. That’s why it’s smart to look for quality gifts that can improve the value, appearance, and comfort of your truck enthusiast’s vehicle in some way. Here are some great holiday gift ideas to get you started.

Tonneau Covers & Sizing

If your truck-enthusiast doesn’t currently have a tonneau cover to keep the items in his or her truck bed safe, it’s time to rectify that situation! A tonneau cover makes a great gift because it’s practical but it also has aesthetic appeal. There are a lot of tonneau covers from which you can choose, so keep the following considerations in mind when figuring out which one to buy:

  • Do you need your tonneau cover to be waterproof? If so, consider purchasing a hard cover instead of a soft cover.
  • Are you looking for lightweight appeal and easy access to the truck bed? Retractable or rollup tonneau covers are the perfect solution.
  • Do you want maximum weather protection for the most extreme weather events? You can’t go wrong with a hinged tonneau cover.

Keep in mind that soft covers tend to be more affordable than hard covers. So you’ll need to consider your budgetary restraints when figuring out what type of tonneau cover to buy for your truck enthusiast.

What To Look for When Purchasing Nerf Bars

Another great gift idea for the truck owner in your life who already has everything is truck step rails. These are so convenient and make it much easier to get into and out of a truck. When purchasing Nerf Bars, there are a few things you should look for, including:

  • Material type (some nerf bars are made with flashy stainless steel, while others are made from black polished carbon steel).
  • Price (generally, the cheapest nerf bars aren’t quite as durable as the pricier options).
  • Warranty (some nerf bars come with a lifetime warranty while others have shorter warranty periods).
  • Retractability (consider whether the person you’re buying for will want fixed running boards or if they’d prefer retractable drop steps).

Once you answer these questions, you’ll simplify the process of selecting the right nerf bars for your truck-owning friend.

Wheels and Rims

Wheels and rims make incredible gifts for truck enthusiasts. Has the truck owner in your life recently talked about wanting to upgrade to shiny chrome rims? Surprise him or her by purchasing flashy rims that will turn lots of heads on the road. Just make sure you choose the right wheel size and bolt pattern for the truck in question.

There are so many things you can buy for your favorite truck enthusiast, depending on what he or she already has. But hopefully this gift guide gives you some good ideas to help you create your gift buying list this holiday season.
