Need gift ideas for preppers? You’re in the right place!

I can’t believe it’s already December; this year has really flown by. But, since we’re nearing the end of the year, you know what’s coming around the corner…Christmas (and, sooner than that, Christmas gift shopping).

I’m a firm believer in remembering what this holiday really means, and why it’s so special. Even though that meaning has been lost over the years, it’s important to realize what truly matters.

However, I also recognize that Christmas is a great time to give friends and family gifts and share good cheer and holiday spirit with them.

That’s why I wanted to show you this 50-item survival gift guide. Whether you’re picking up a thing or two for yourself before the holidays hit, or you’re shopping for your preparedness-loving friends and family, there’s just about something for everyone on this list.

The gift of preparedness – especially in such an unsteady economic, environmental and political climate – is one of the most valuable gifts you can give a man, woman, or child. That’s why I want to call attention to these…
