  • Sunglasses – You only get one pair of eyes in your life, so they should always be protected. Unfortunately, most people working outside go through more sunglasses than they should because they misplace or break them. This is a gift that they are sure to use. Just make sure that the ones you buy are labeled to block harmful UV rays. If you are looking to spend a little more money, you could get some that are scratch-resistant.

  • Sunscreen – Quality sunscreen is a must for anyone working outside. This is something one can never have too much of. Be sure to get one with a high SPF so they won’t have to reapply throughout the day. Contrary to popular belief, the SPF rating has nothing to do with the level of protection, but rather the length of time that the protection is provided.
  • Lunch Bag – A freezable lunch bag is an absolutely perfect gift. They can toss the bag in the freezer when they get home from work and then pack their lunch in it in the morning before they leave.
  • Cooler – A compact cooler that actually seals and won’t leak all over their vehicle is ideal for beverages. Some have a shelf inside that they can use for their lunch, which eliminates the need for a lunch bag.

  • Thermostat – One can never appreciate how amazing a quality thermostat is until they have a nicely insulated one that actually keeps hot beverages as they should be for a longer period of time.
