In no time, you’ll be able to choose the perfect gift for the prepper in your life. It’s truly amazing what people need to help them prepare for their future, in case of an emergency!
2. Emergency Stove & Fuel
3. Multi-Purpose Tool
Everyone needs a Multi-Purpose Tool in their kit. Having this type of tool on hand will help you do more than you ever imagined.
4. Sun Oven
Please keep in mind, unless you have a lot of sunshine where you live, I do not recommend buying one of these. If you have sunrays like where I live in Southern Utah, these can be used almost 365 days a year. You’ll need a Sun Oven to help you get through any emergency situation.
5. My Book “Prepare Your Family For Survival”
“Prepare Your Family For Survival” is a book that I wrote. I totally think it’s the perfect gift for prepping. It has everything in it regarding prepping that you should know. Knowledge is power when prepping.
6. Dutch Oven & Storage Bag
If you have a Dutch Oven and fuel, there is nothing you can’t cook or bake in one of these. This my PRINTABLE Dutch Oven Chart you can use. If you know a welder, you may want to have my Dutch Oven Stand made.
7. Charcoal/Lump Coal
Charcoal Briquettes are something that everyone should have on hand when it comes to emergency preparedness. You never know when you will need it, so you might as well keep it on hand.
8. Fire Chimney
Having a Fire Chimney is one smart move when you are a prepper. Keep in mind that a fire chimney can help you in many situations when you need to get a fire started. It a great gift to help someone with emergency preparedness.
A Lantern is something that is super important when it comes to emergency survival. You are going to need light, and more than just a flashlight in many cases, and there is no way around it. A lantern is a great gift to give someone to help them prepare.
10. WaterBricks for Water Storage
Each one is 3.5 gallons and weighs about 27 pounds when filled with water. They stack on top of each other and come with a handle to grab and go. I have 16 WaterBricks (3.5-gallon size) stored under a queen-size bed which equates to 56 gallons of water. Check out WaterBricks and 6-Pack WaterBricks!
11. Water Preserver
If you store water, you’ll want to use Water Preserver so you only have to rotate your water every 5 years. If you use bleach in your stored water you will need to rotate it every 6 months. That doesn’t work for me. I can rotate it every 5 years for sure.
12. 4-in-1 Tool
This is a critical tool to have on hand in order to turn off the gas to your home. Please do NOT turn off your gas line unless you smell gas in the neighborhood, or you are in imminent danger.
The gas company will have to come back and turn it on. It can also be used to pry open doors and lift debris. When Mark and I took the C.E.R.T. class they suggested we all get one. So, of course we did. 4-1-Tool is something that may turn out to be the perfect gift for the prepper you know.
13. Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm
Prepper or not, a Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm is something everyone needs in their home. Grab one for yourself and the prepper that needs a gift.
14. Fire Extinguisher
When it comes to having a Fire Extinguisher, make sure you are prepared. Fire extinguishers make awesome gifts in the emergency preparedness department.
Keep in mind that all fire extinguishers are labeled to show what kind of extinguisher it is. This helps us understand which classification of fire fuel the extinguisher will be effective in putting out or controlling any given situation.
- Class A Fires: Ordinary combustibles like paper, cloth, wood, rubber, and many plastics
- Class B Fires: Flammable liquids like oil, and gasoline, charcoal lighter, kerosene
- Class C Fires: Energized electrical equipment like wiring or motors. Once the electricity to those units are turned off they become a Class A.
- Class D Fires: Combustible metals like aluminum, magnesium or titanium.
So, when you purchase a fire extinguisher it is extremely important to identify the type of fuel you think will be most common at your home, office, garage, etc.
This is so you can select the correct extinguisher that you think may just be the best for your personal situation to do the job correctly.
15. Solar Powered Cell Phone Charger
This unit comes with a solar flashlight and it can charge your phone quickly. You may need to grab a Cell Phone Charger as a gift for the prepper in your life.
16. Goal Zero Solar Generator
I have personally tried this one with my son-in-law who uses a C-PAP, it works. He used it for 8 + hours one night. It’s perfect to use with a nebulizer when the power goes out. These are an absolute must to have at your home.
I can’t say enough about this Goal Zero YETI 400 Solar Generator. It’s great for making sure your home is preparedness ready!
17. First Aid Kit
Of course, you can put together a first aid kit yourself, but this one has some really nice amenities in it. You may have seen my first aid kit using a Stanley Big Max Tool Kit and my Plano Fishing Tackle Box.
Don’t try and have an emergency kit without a First Aid Kit. Get one of these for the emergency prepper in your life.
18. NOAA Hand Crank Radio
NOAA Hand Crank Crank Radio is a must when it comes to emergencies. Having a crank radio on hand can literally be life-saving.
19. Bucket of Food
These buckets are not my favorite way to buy food storage, but it’s better than nothing at all. I realize it’s a bit overwhelming for people to get started with food storage.
This may be a great alternative for one person. Make sure you grab an Augason Farms 30-day ONE Person Bucket to help with emergency preparedness.
20. Water Filter
Having the right amount of water is crucial to survival in an emergency. Grab a LifeStraw Personal Water Filter to make life easier in an emergency.
Being prepared in an emergency is no joke. I hope this Emergency Preparedness Gift Guide helps you find that ideal gift for the prepper in your life. Which gift do you plan on buying for them?
