The Valentines on the Road Guide For Truckers

Valentine's day is only a few days away, but it doesn’t have to get you down. As a trucker on the road, you might be missing your loved ones back at home, but that’s no reason not to celebrate the big day.

Cupid works in mysterious ways and will even help you spread the love right from your rig. Modern technology has made it easy to celebrate from long distances, so check out how to create a special day for your loved ones at home.

The Valentines on the Road Guide For Truckers 

Send a Gift

Just because you’re far away trucking doesn’t mean that you don’t have time to send a meaningful gift to your loved ones back at home. There are tons of flower delivery services that will deliver flowers and chocolate on time.

Like 1-800 Flowers, for example. Also, you don’t have to send stuff home, surprise your loved one by having their gift sent to their office, so they can be in the spotlight for the day. Sometimes for ladies, there’s nothing like being able to make co-workers jealous by receiving a thoughtful gift.

If your special one isn’t the type to enjoy the standard chocolate and flowers think outside the box with a surprise from Amazon Prime. They will make sure your present gets delivered by Valentine's day if you order it now. They have tools, video games, t-shirts, and everything you can imagine to send the perfect gift. They even have suggestions for under $10.

Plan a Date

Make time for your Valentine by scheduling a virtual date online. You can give them a call to tell them how much they mean to you or even use Skype or Facetime to see how their day is going.

Maybe you can call each other when you’re ready to have dinner or from a restaurant you’re both attending from separate locations. Sometimes setting aside time for a person can be more meaningful than a physical gift.

Plan a Surprise Future Date

You don’t have to only let your trucking loved ones know how much they mean to you when the calendar says to. Whenever you have a day off back at home use it to surprise your loved ones with a spontaneous Valentine's celebration.

You can have all the ingredients you need to cook a special dinner at home or a fun evening out planned. Just remember to have the cards and candy ready. Your spouse and kids will love this surprise.

Get Crafty

Use your skills to handcraft something from the heart. Hand paint a mug or make a card by hand telling your partner how much you appreciate them. By taking the time to make a meaningful gift you’ll be able to show that you really care. Plus, it’s always fun to make a card from your spouse’s pet.

Happy Valentines Day

Even though you’re on the road, cupid and modern technology can help you celebrate Valentine’s day with your loved ones. Don’t feel blue, make the time to show your family, spouse, friends, or anyone special in your life how much they mean to you!
