One of the great things about being a prepper, is that we are pretty easy to shop for. If we already have something, and we get another one, we will never complain. We all have lists of things we want, but don’t have yet. Even if some of these prepping supplies won’t actually save our lives, we can come up with a reason why it might.
Last year we couple lists of great Chrsitmas gift ideas for preppers. Lisa wrote an article about gift ideas for people who you want to get interested in preparedness, and I wrote one about unique gifts for that prepper that has everything. This year I tried not to add the same gift ideas I did last year, but a couple are in both articles because they are just that cool.
SPP179 Great Christmas Gift Ideas for Preppers
In today’s podcast Lisa and I went into detail about some of these gift ideas for preppers. Towards the end Lisa even went more detail about some other gift ideas that are preparedness related, but don’t have “prepper” written all over them.
My Gift Ideas for Preppers
I will try to link to as many of these as possible, but there are so many versions of some of these, and so many places to buy them, you might have to look around a bit.
EDC Jacket (Any clothes with lots of pockets)
I had to add the “any clothes with a lot of pockets” to this because as preppers we can always use more pockets or ways to carry our gear. There are quite a few EDC (Every Day Carry) jackets and coats available. One of these jacket is on my Christmas list this year.
Hand Gun/Rifle Accessories
If you or your significant other own a handgun or rifle with a rail system, accessories are a great idea. While you shouldn’t have your firearm loaded down with every accessory possible, there are some that are necessary. A few that come to mind are a strap (AR15) a flashlight and a scope.
Along these same lines is extra ammo. No prepper has ever said “I have enough ammo” And even if they do, you should buy them more anyway. This doesn’t need to be high end ammo (although it can be) if it is just for target practice, but it need to be the right caliber for the gun.
Conflicted the Card Game
I have written about Conflicted in the past about how this is not just a game, but also a prepping tool. I also even recently did a video about the new Conflicted deck, the Economic Collapse deck. This card game is not only a way to open up dialog with your children or non prepper friends, it also helps you gain insight about why your plan might not be the best option.
Micro Fire Key Ring
I purchased a couple of these Micro Fire Key Rings in the past and because I loved them so much, I got a couple more this year to give to the kids. Even if your children or friends are completely uninterested in preparedness, they will probably still like these. They might actually get them to question how starting a fire without a Bic lighter works.
For those of you who listen to the podcast, you already know how great these Tac-Bar packages are. We’ve even given a few away in our monthly contests. These are food rations, water purification tablets and a survival tin all inside an ammo can. This is one of those great Christmas gift ideas for the prepper who has everything.
The All American Sun Oven
I can’t say enough how much we love our Sun Oven, and how everyone I know that has one loves it too. The Sun Oven is literally the best option for cooking off the grid, and is something you can use now. You can cook just about anything with a Sun Oven, and even purify water.
If you are interested in purchasing an All American Sun Oven, make sure and use this link to get our discount. These are a little pricey, but I guarantee you won’t be sorry. You can tell from this interview I did with Sun Ovens President Paul Munson that they are a great company.
Prepper Related T-shirts
When I say prepper related T-Shirts I don’t mean shirts with “I’m a Prepper” written on them, I mean shirts preppers would wear depending on what they are interested in. It could be something cammo, it could be something Zombie, or it could be something patriotic. Here are a few examples of what I would like for Christmas.
1st Gen Night Vision Monocular
Night vision is something I have always wanted, but the price tag has always gotten in the way. While 3rd generation night vision (the best) is pretty expensive, 1st generation night vision is more in my price range. To get a better idea about what the differences are have a look at this article.
Conceal Gun Cabinets
In the past I did a video about the hidden storage cabinet I have, and I love it. To everyone else it looks like a regular shelf, but I know what it really is. There are a few different places you can get these, and The Folkway Lodge is giving away something like this in this months contest. You can even find them on eBay.
We’ve probably all seen the fake rock to hide your key under, or even had a fake can of shaving cream as a teenager that we hid stuff in. These days there are many more options available, and even some higher end stuff that looks like furniture like these.
Solar Chargers (Anything Solar)
Because of how vulnerable our power grid is, and because we are always looking for ways to live without electricity, solar power is very popular with preppers. These could be basic solar chargers for phones, or on a larger scale, a solar panel setup.
Solar could also include yard lights and motion sensors. I have this Defiant Solar Light and I absolutely love it. I have had it in my backyard for over a year, and it always works like it should.
DIY Prepper Gifts
In the show Lisa talked about gifts you can make at home like basket of homemade canned goods and even meals in jars which are exactly what it is…meals that you put in jars that have a long shelf live and look pretty for people who might not be totally into preparedness, but are considering the idea. Here are some recipes from Mom With A Prep.
