So whether you’re in need of a fire academy graduation gift, a retirement gift for a firefighter, or simply great birthday or Christmas presents for that special fireman or firewoman – we’ve got you covered.
Every firefighter is different, so we can’t tell you the best gift for your special firefighter – but we’ve gathered a diverse list of 21 great options, ranging from personalized firefighter gifts to firefighter jewelry & accessories to some very unique and useful items made from recycled firefighter turnout gear! So there’s no emergency – we’re sure you’ll find the perfect gift!

This beautiful clock features a variety of firefighting symbols, particularly that most classic of firefighter emblems, the Maltese Cross – and also comes customized with your own personal message for the special firefighter. It’s a great personalized gift that any firefighter would be proud to display on their wall! (And can even be a creative alternative to a watch for a retiring firefighter…)
2) Firefighter Turnout Gear Wallet
A unique wallet – made of actual recycled firefighter turnout gear!
Every firefighter knows how strong and durable this material is – so if you want to get your fireman husband, boyfriend, dad, or son a gift that you know will last, then you can’t go wrong with this wallet!
3) Sterling Silver St. Florian Pendant
St. Florian is the Catholic patron saint of firefighters, believed to protect them in their work – and as they risk their lives on a daily basis, firefighters need all the protection they can get!
There are plenty of unique and creative firefighter gift ideas on this list, but some occasions call for a more traditional gift. For a Catholic firefighter, especially a new fire academy graduate just beginning his or her career, there’s no better gift than the protection of St. Florian – especially in the form of a beautiful sterling silver pendant like this one!
4) Firefighter Grilling Spatula
For firefighters who always keep the fire under control – whether it’s in an apartment building or on the backyard grill!

5) Personalized Firefighter Pillow
A unique pillow made of all-new materials designed to look just like a firefighter’s turnout gear!

The pillow comes personalized with the firefighter’s name, just below the Maltese Cross – a special piece for finally relaxing after a long, difficult shift!

Engraved on the side are the words “Duty & Courage” – and indeed, this watch is the perfect way to show that you appreciate their courage in carrying out their duty.
