When trying to come up with ideas, use your imagination. Think about things that they can use on the job or that will mean a lot to them. Remember that while they, of course, like many of the same things anyone else would enjoy, you can make the gift more personal by remembering what they do for a living. Firemen are very dedicated to their job and it is a large part of their lives. Firemen are every day heroes, risking their lives to protect others.Think about the kind of gifts they’ll appreciate and be able to use on a day to day basis, even though they spend a lot of time on the go.
