8 Useful Gifts All Practical People Will Love


Practical presents are the obvious choice for those people on your list who say there’s nothing they want or need. When you get someone a practical gift, you can enjoy knowing that one way or another, it will come in handy for them. Plus you’ll get the satisfaction of surprising them!

We may be mid-way into December already, but if you’re still stumped on what to buy for the practical person in your life, we got you covered with 8 great gift ideas.

Moving Blankets

College football games, camping trips, early morning hunting trips, beach adventures, or protecting your vehicle’s seats from your pet’s shedding - Camo Moving Blankets, and any of our other colored moving blankets, are the perfect practical and multi-purpose gift.

Moving blankets are to protect valuables and furniture from any damage during a moving job, but they can be used for much more than that! We also carry small sound blankets and large sound blankets that are great for recording studios or to drown out a noisy neighbor.

Pickup Truck Cargo Net

Pickup truck cargo nets are an excellent gift for the pick-up truck owners in your life. They’re much lighter and easier to manage compared to tarps, and they do a great job at securing your items.

We carry extra-short truck cargo nets, short bed truck cargo nets and long bed truck cargo nets for different-sized truck beds, and each comes with cam buckles and S-hooks for quick securement.

We also sell small cargo nets for motorcycles and mopeds!

Recovery Straps

If you know someone who lives in the winter months, or enjoys off-roading and mudding, our recovery straps are a no-brainer. These tiedowns are highly essential tools that will help you get out of a sticky situation no matter the condition.

Our 1-Ply and 2-Ply recovery straps offer the best in strength and provide enough stretch to get you out of a tight spot.

Car Towing Tie Downs

US Cargo Control Car Tow Straps - Ratchet Strap with RTJ hooks

If you need a practical present for a car collector, mechanic, or tow truck driver, auto tie-down straps are a perfect choice. Auto tie-downs are great for someone who frequently hauls vehicles or someone who owns a flatbed trailer or tow dolly.

We recommend our tow ratchet straps that have RTJ Cluster Hooks because the cluster hook combines three hooks into one chain ring, each with its purpose when towing vehicles with different frame designs. Read below what RTJ stands for:

The R Hook – Ford Vehicles

T Hook – GM and Chrysler Vehicles

J Hook – Foreign Vehicles (these have parts made and assembled outside the country)

Ratchet Straps

Motorcycle Tie Down Straps

Motorcycles are a big investment, and the motorcyclist deserves heavy-duty motorcycle tie down straps that will secure tightly to their vehicle during transport or in storage. Now, dirtbikes and motorcycles can all be transported to and from winter storage without a scratch thanks to these specialty motorcycle ratchet straps.
