Have an expedited trucker on your holiday shopping list? Don't know where to begin to figure out what gifts they would love and actually use?

If you're stumped on what to get your favorite expediter, you've come to the right place. Here are six ideas to help you choose the perfect gift for your driver.

1. The Truck Driver's Pressure Relieving Cushion
Since your favorite expediter spends long hours behind the wheel, this seat cushion can help a driver feel better, be more alert, and stay safer throughout the day. It relieves point-of-contact pressure and reduces lower back discomfort, using medical-grade elastic gel interior with a patented honeycomb shape that distributes weight evenly throughout the cushion. Its two-inch-thick elastic gel interior creates the sensation of sitting on air as it conforms to the unique shape of driver's body and immediately returns to its original form when the driver gets up.

2. Relaxzen 60-2910 10-Motor Massage Seat Cushion with Heat
This 10-motor massage cushion is sure to give your driver much deserved relief from the day's stress by gently massaging the neck, upper and lower back, lumbar, and thighs all at once or by targeting those areas individually. The large, backlit controller allows the driver to easily choose from eight different intensities and speeds. And the driver can push the heat button to activate the heated lumbar area. This massage seat cushion includes both AC and DC adaptors for home and truck use.

This fleece heated blanket blanket will help keep your favorite driver warm even on the coldest days and nights. The blanket is made out of 100-percent polar fleece and features an 8-foot power cord so that it can be used nearly anywhere in the vehicle. When it's not needed, the blanket folds and fits into zippered bag for easy storage.

4. Gift Certificate: Massage Envy
A full massage could be the perfect gift for your favorite expediter. But where can you get a gift certificate from a licensed massage therapist conveniently located to the driver? Consider a national chain like Massage Envy Spa. This way, no matter where your driver might be in the country, he or she will likely be able to find a spa nearby. Gift certificates start at $75.00, which is typically good for a 60-minute introductory massage, including gratuity.
Price: Starting at $75.00

6. Cup Holder Swivel Tray
This tray locks securely in a cup holder and offers a textured non-slip surface that keeps items--such as food, pen and paper, or mobile phone--from sliding around and causing a distraction. The jointed arm swivels from the driver to passenger side, so that the driver can move it out of the way when it's not needed. And the tray can be raised or lowered for convenience and comfort.
Price: $11.00
