Great Gifts For Firefighters

Updated on January 10, 2015

Firefighter Gift Guide For Holidays and Special Occasions

There are some great gifts for firefighters that not only reflect the pride a fireman or female firefighter has for their job, but also shows them that you appreciate the importance of their career too.

Firefighting symbols are everywhere and firefighter logos like the maltese cross are always sure to please whether it's on a t-shirt, hat, iphone case or watch it will always be the universal symbol of fire departments.

Of course firefighters love flames, fire trucks, dalamations and fire hydrants almost as much as they love their families and helping others in need. They are the symbols of courage, honor, brotherhood, dedication and pride. I am a part of the firefighter family so I am really proud (and qualified) to bring you some of these great gift ideas perfect for holidays, birthdays, graduation or retirement.

Firefighter T-Shirts

Firefighter T-Shirts

A firefighter t-shirt is by far the one present every firefighter will wear with pride. It isn't just a t-shirt. It isn't just a present. It's a universal symbol of firefighter, brotherhood and fire departments everywhere.

Anywhere you go from the east coast to the west coast, north to south you are sure to see a firefighter wearing his fire maltese cross proudly their chest. It tells a tale of tradition. It tells a story of character and dedication. Most commonly, you will find them wearing a navy blue tee with a white printed firefighter logo on the front chest and a bigger one on the back of the shirt.

Beyond that favored t-shirt is the love for long sleeve tee's, hoodies, jackets and of course, hats.

Some of our favorite firefighter t-shirt stores even offer the ability to personalize with names or fire station numbers:

Time To Give A Firefighter Gift

When it's time to buy a firefighter a gift, whether it is for the holidays or his birthday or a present for graduating from the fire academy or retiring from the fire department look for something that has all the basic firefighting requirements. A firefighter will always be quick to list things a firefighter needs: fire, flames, dedication, courage, honor and pride.

Whether you are a new recruit or a retired fire service member you know that from beginning to end of your career, there is always to honor the tradition of firefighting.

James Hanlon narrates this film beautifully, and the brothers are interviewed describing that terrible day.

It truly portrays the victims, the heroes, and the survivors sensitively, honestly, and shockingly. It is unforgettable.
