Tis the season for Christmas shopping.
I thought it would be fun to have a conversation about preparedness gift ideas for the prepper in your life.
Maybe it’s the excuse you’ve been waiting for to buy that ‘thing’ for yourself. You could gift it to your significant other ;)
It’s winter time, so maybe something related to the cold weather season?
Maybe apparel such as winter gloves, winter coat, scarf, warm hat? What about Hand and Foot warmers? Do you keep emergency outerwear gear in your vehicle? Anything else related to winter preps?
These are pretty decent winter gloves:
Ozero Winter Gloves
Need a warmer coat?
Maybe a nice scarf for the Mrs.?
Scarfs for Women

Emergency Kit Items
Maybe it’s time to build another emergency kit.
It’s a great idea to keep one in your vehicle too. It might include items like food bars, emergency blankets, fire starter kit, paracord, portable water filter, and whatever else floats your boat…
Countertop Gravity Water Filter
Perhaps the best countertop water filter available, the Berkey, would be a great preparedness item. It will assure you of safe drinking water for your family at home.
You do know that WATER is right up there around #1, right?
Or maybe you’re interested in a smaller Berkey like this one that I wrote about:
I love flashlights, all sorts… They always make a great gift item – perfect for preparedness.
I keep this one on my keychain:
Olight 90 Lumens AAA Compact Keychain EDC Flashlight
One of my favorite little pocket carry flashlights is the Streamlight Stylus Pro:

Another great little prep gift item is the emergency radio. Most are multi-powered and include AM/FM as well as shortwave radio bands. Weather bands too.
I recently wrote about 3 great choices (although there are many!),
How about a pair of 2-way radios for communications?
One popular choice is the following pair of Midland’s.
A battery powered portable shortwave radio is a nice information gathering tool for one’s preparedness. Plus they’re fun for listening:
The Survival Kitchen
What preparedness items might be good for the kitchen?
Maybe a hand grain mill? A food dehydrator? Thinking about finally getting into canning?
Here’s a popular and inexpensive food dehydrator model:
NESCO FD-75A, Snackmaster Pro Food Dehydrator
For your information, an article about a particular pressure canner brand that will be handed down for generations:
What about kitchen safety? Grease fire anyone?

Speaking of knives, what about a new knife for Christmas?
Maybe a pocket knife, or maybe something bigger?
