If you are looking for gifts for survivalists and preppers you have found the right place!

I’d like to suggest you consider including emergency preparedness gifts on your holiday gift list for family and friends.

This is my family’s third year of including an emergency disaster preparedness gift exchange as a part of our Christmas.

The difference is that while my wife originally came up with the idea we implemented two years ago, now our adult family members have grown to expect this as a part of the festivities.  In fact, this year two of our daughters already had their gifts purchased and ready before summer ended.

As the holiday season approaches, consider adding emergency disaster preparation supplies for you and your family as part of gift giving.

If you give gifts, exchange gifts, or simply want to do something new and different, make the focus of this year’s holiday gifts disaster survival preparation.  This is one way everyone can make fast strides forward in preparing for the unexpected.

    Hi!
    Please allow me to add my 5 cents to the gifts list!
    As I am an automotive gifts lover, I will be glad to get a good off-road tire compressor, a set of tools or 12V car coffee heater.
    Thank you!
