It’s that time of year again! Buying for your loved ones can be hard, but Parts for Trucks makes it easy. Missed Black Friday? Don’t sweat it. With gifts at a range of fantastic price points, our gift guide will make sure that whoever’s unwrapping that present will be thrilled.

Winter Gloves 


If you know anyone who works outside, these gloves make for the perfect gift. Pile-lined, these winter gloves will keep your fingers warm while the grain leather makes sure you can keep a firm grip on whatever you’re working on, regardless of the cold. Running just under $10 each, they make a great stocking stuffer.

Milwaukee PACKOUT

This item isn’t so much of an item as much as it’s a line, but if you know of any tradespeople, chances are, the Milwaukee PACKOUT modular storage system is on their wish list. With the PACKOUT line, toolboxes and accessories are easily stacked together to make transporting your tools on and off site easier than ever.

Best part of this gift idea is the price is entirely dependent on your budget. Want to get something small for an existing PACKOUT fan? Grab the 20 or 30oz Tumbler (48-22-8392R/48-22-8393R) for under $40. Know someone who’s been eyeing the PACKOUT line but hasn’t purchased any pieces yet? Get them started with an essential like the Rolling Tool Box (48-22-8426) and they can grow their collection from there. 

Ice Cleats


Sometimes you live in an area with well-salted walkways, and sometimes you don’t. Either way, have your giftee walking confidently no matter the conditions with these ice cleats. They’re easy to slip on and off any shoe or boot, and the hi-viz strap helps increase the visibility of any avid walkers during the dark winter months.

Fisher Cup Holder Mount Kit


Know someone who’s had or will have a new Fisher snow plow installed? This accessory costs infinitely  less than a plow, but will be infinitely handy for the operator. With an adjustable gooseneck, this mount fits most standard cup holders and offers different attachments so it can switch from a cellphone mount to a snow plow control mount in the blink of an eye. The snow plow operator in your life will thank you!



If you have a mechanic in your life, odds are you’ve seen them working on a creeper – you know the one. Vinyl tearing, foam all but tearing off, and a wheel that only sticks sometimes. Well, no more! Do your mechanic pal the kindness of finally upgrading them to a creeper that will treat them right. This creeper from Performance Tool has thick padding and an adjustable headrest that will have them – and their back – thanking you.

Lucas Slick Mist Detailing Kit


For the car guy or gal in your life, this gift is perfect. It might be winter now, but they always have their eye to the summer, when they can give their set of wheels a nice clean before hitting the road in style.

Give them a head start with this Slick Mist Detailing Kit by Lucas. It includes an interior detailer, a tire & trim shine, and a speed wax to have all your basics covered in one kit. Plus, it comes with a microfiber cloth and tire sponge, providing you with all the tools needed for the job. All of this, for just under $35!

Magnetic Flood Light


You’ll always need to have a flashlight somewhere. Even if you don’t use one for work, it’s a good idea to have some in your home – or better yet, in your car, in case of emergencies. What makes this a great gift is its magnetic strip. If you get stranded on the side of the road while it’s dark out, you can attach it to the underside of your hood while you take a look, making it the perfect tool for providing some light while keeping your hands free.

Jump Starter


This is for those who want a one-and-done gift. In the Canadian cold, a jump starter can be a lifesaver. This jump starter from Goodall can instantly start gasoline engines in cars, regular trucks, commercial trucks, boats, and beyond. Plus, it can be used to recharge your devices using the USB or DC charging ports!
