Our family does Kris Kringle and this year we have to buy for DH's uncle; and I am completely stuck for ideas- he is in his mid 50's, doesn't drink alcohol, is a long distance truck driver, lives in a sprawling country property and owns every item I can think of already... We are thinking about just giving him a gift voucher but that seems a little thoughtless to me...
Help! $50 budget..

Does he have an iPhone/iPad/iPod? You could get an iTunes voucher so he can buy more music/apps/books etc for it

DO you have any idea where he travels to in his truck. Maybe a nights accommodation at a hotel somewhere on his route, im sure he'll be happy to get out of his truck for a night. OR what about a travel esky for his truck to keep his lunch/drinks cold. Or wat about even a camp stove or something campy for the road.

I think the audio books are a great idea! I love them. Maybe a biography of his favourite team or sport or some of the Australian books are great too.
