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.
We have done several years of having a survival themed Christmas exchange.
The difference is that while my wife originally came up with the idea we implemented about 5 years ago, now our adult family members have grown to expect this as a part of the festivities. In fact, last 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.
Here is our 2020 survival gift guide. These are all perfect gifts for survivalists and preppers or anyone who is just trying to be a little bit more prepared for the unexpected.

A butchering kit with all the knives needed to quickly and efficiently get the job done is the perfect gift for a hunter or someone who raises meat animals.
If butchering animals is something that your survivalist is interested in or planning to do, a meat grinder will be used often.
A manual meat grinder is great for processing the meat without power, so is great for someone prepping.
If your gift recipient is planning to hunt and now just for prepping for a SHTF situation, we have a meat grinder similar to this one and it’s ground up many deer and rabbit and is still going strong.
Cooking in a solar oven can be a fun way to make food without using electricity.

If you are buying a kit with spices Hi Country is the brand of spice kit we like. We like their casings and the spice mix doesn’t seem to be as salty as the other ones we’ve tried. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t currently carry Hi Mountain, but if you are in the Pacific Northwest with a Bi-Mart, you can find them for a reasonable price there.
