You can’t beat today’s podcast before Christmas.

Amazing Preparedness Christmas Presents for that Prepper in your life!

Christmas is fast approaching and you haven’t figured out what to get your prepper spouse.  Or you want to help your children become more prepared and realize this is the perfect opportunity to get them prepared.

There is only ONE MAJOR PROBLEM… No One wants a pack of Freeze Dried Food or a bag or rice or beans for Christmas!

That is why I came up with an amazing list of really neat stuff that people would love to get, even if they aren’t “die-hard survivalists.”

Preparedness is the Best Gift You Could Ever Give a Loved One.

Giving preparedness to your family is probably the best thing you could give them.  There are many benefits of getting survival gear for Christmas.

You get the FUN Prepping Gear

You don’t have to follow your “5 year plan.”  You can look at the cool stuff that you WANT… just because.

Introducing others to survival

Even if someone isn’t a prepper, many fun gifts are survival-related.  If that person is a gadget nut, or even a hiker, you can hook them up with amazingly fun prepping gear.

You can provide others with multi-purpose items

I am giving my son something that he can use for preparedness AND to make money!  It is something he can use to build crafts, such as a survival paracord bracelet, and more.

You can borrow the really cool survival items you chose

The gift I mentioned for my son, I plan to borrow when I want to make the items that I need for my own preparedness gear.  This is a way for me to buy other people, what I want, and borrow it!

Superb Stocking Stuffers for Prepping Prowess

Small doesn’t mean “not-useful.”  Some of the most important survival gear can fit directly in a  sock on your Fireplace Mantle. Take notes, because you won’t want to forget these cool little items.

Top-Notch Gadgets for High Class Survival

If you need something a little larger to make you feel more prepared, I have generated a list of great quality items that are sure to put your christmas gifts about 3 steps ahead of all the rest.

Israeli Bandage Battle Dressing First Aid Compression Bandage, 6 Inch

Israeli Bandage Battle Dressing First Aid Compression Bandage, 6 Inch

 

This is such an amazing first aid tool, that I have to add it to the list.  Israeli Battle Dressings are a mix between a gauze dressing, a compression bandage, with the potential to be used as a makeshift tourniquet.  Never leave home without one.

BaoFeng BF-F8HP 8-Watt Dual Band Two-Way Radio

BaoFeng BF-F8HP 8-Watt Dual Band Two-Way Radio

This is the cadillac of the baofeng brand.  It is an 8 watt radio with a high gain antenna.

It comes with battery, charger and earpiece with mic.  I have just one concern: I think that the radio may need a small fan just to keep it cool.  8 watts in a small package like this is quite a bit of power.

Gerber or Leatherman MultiTool

Gerber or Leatherman MultiTool

Typical high quality multitools can save you in a pinch.  The one I have in the photo is the Legend, which is my EDC multitool.

Garmin eTrex 20X gps

Garmin eTrex 20X gps

I have the Dakota 20.  This GPS seems to have everything my dakota had for about half the price.  The reason for this is that it doesnt have a touch screen.  What is does have is:

  • Elevation, odometer, speed, etc.
  • Compass
  • Waypoint Marking
  • WAAS
  • Geocaching

Maxpedition Falcon-II Backpack

Maxpedition Falcon-II Backpack

This is a high-quality, but expensive molle capable backpack from Maxpedition.  Anyone recieving this from you would be extremely excited.

Chroma Camera Drone

Chroma Camera Drone

Now for the coolest and most expensive in the list.

The chroma is a professional drone with an hd camera.  I have seen these in action and the video quality is amazing.  Not only can this be used for amazing professional flyover and fly-by video, but it can be used to get intel or to give (small supplies) in an emergency.

pStyle – Clear

pStyle - Clear

When you are all geared up, and you need to go, men just unzip and go.  What about women?  Introducing, the p-Style.  Unzip, place it below, and go.  The reviews I have seen have said this one is better than the Go-Girl brand.

The Scout Slingshot

The Scout Slingshot

This thing is 40 dollars and you can find professional grade sling shots for half the price.

None of those will fit in your Bug Out Bag like this will and still provide great power.

Elite First Aid Military IFAK Individual First Aid Kit

Elite First Aid Military IFAK Individual First Aid Kit

I am not a fan of premade kits, but this is a neat little molle first aid kit.  Most of the items in this bag are useful.  I DO recommend you instantly open this kit and replace the quikclot with some celox.

Covert Cabinets Gun Cabinet Wall Shelf

Covert Cabinets Gun Cabinet Wall Shelf

This is a great idea.  I dont recommend spending $240 on a shelf when you could just get a safe.  You could build one for about $50.

Colt Tactical Paracord Belt

Colt Tactical Paracord Belt

It is a full belt of paracord, so you will get at least a half pound of paracord.  My guess, that is at least 50-100 feet.  You can also hide hooks, small knives, and other survival gear in the belt.
