Firefighter Gift Ideas for the Holidays
With the holiday season just around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about holiday gifts for the firefighter in your life. In the following article, you'll find a list of the top five holiday gifts for firefighters, along with information on how much you should expect to pay for each.
1. Firefighter T Shirts
With many different styles available, there's sure to be several firefighter t shirts that are perfect for the hero in your life. Choose from simple, text-only varieties or modern, graphic-heavy styles.
Cost: Expect to pay around $15 - $30 each for high-quality firefighter t shirts.
2. Firefighter Outerwear
Another great holiday gift is a firefighter sweatshirt or jacket. Firemen face all sorts of nasty weather, so help them feel more comfortable by giving good outerwear. On the jacket side, choose from a lightweight the sideline jacket, typically made of nylon and flannel, or a heavier nylon and fleece jacket. In especially cold climates, try a denim chore coat with a quilted lining and insulating wristlets. A firefighter sweatshirt is typically less expensive than a jacket, and may be worn for more of the year.
Cost: Anywhere from $20 - $70
3. Personal Vehicle Light and Siren
Nothing screams, "Watch out, firefighter coming through!" like a personal vehicle light and/or siren system. Even if the special hero in your life doesn't use his or her personal vehicle on the job, a vehicle light or siren is a fun gift. Most high-quality light systems are designed for interior and exterior mounting. Both sirens and lights make great holiday gifts for any firefighter.
Cost: For lights, expect to pay around $200 - $300. For sirens, expect around $100 - $150.
4. Firefighter Mugs and Glasses
Not all firefighter gifts need to be for on-the-job purposes. A well-made firefighter coffee mug, water bottle or beer stein is a great way for firefighters to show their pride while off the clock. Travel coffee mugs with firefighter emblems or logos are useful and attractive. Firefighter water bottles can be used at the gym, in the car or on a hike. And firefighter beer steins are an all-time favorite for watching the game with friends or hosting a home movie night.
Cost: Coffee mugs: $4 - $10. Water bottles: $6 - $15. Firefighter beer steins: 10 - $30.
5. Firefighter Christmas Ornaments
If you're looking for a seasonal gift, firefighter ornaments and holiday decorations fit the bill. Resin firefighter ornaments make great stocking stuffers and celebrate the firefighting life, depicting fire trucks, firefighter Santas, firefighter boots, fire pups, and more.
Cost: Firefighter Christmas ornaments and decorations usually run about $5 - $20.
