Preppers Wish List

Preppers Wish List Instead of the latest useless gadget this year, why not get some emergency preparedness gifts for your loved one? Here are a list of items that are guaranteed to be on your preppers wish list!

Stocking Stuffers:

Instead of putting them in a traditional stocking, I think it would be cute (and more useful) if Santa had a Bug Out Bag hanging in its usual place with all of the above in it!

Preppers Wish List Going Bigger:

  • Dehydrator
  • Canning Supplies (Tammy has some great money saving advice on canning supplies)
  • Pressure Cooker (not electric)
  • Foodsaver
  • Cast iron pans
  • Campstove (don’t forget the fuel)
  • First Aid Kits
  • Car emergency packs (Costco had a really nice one for $29 the other day)
  • Tent
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Fishing Gear
  • Hunting Gear
  • Emergency Toilet (could be a good gag gift that is REALLY appreciated someday)
  • 100 hour candles

Going REALLY Big:

  • Rain Barrels (check Craigslist for people that deliver in your area and only buy food grade & pressure washed)
  • Generator
  • Solar panels
  • Big Berkey Water Filter
  • Sun Oven
  • Big Buddy Propane Heater
  • Hand grain mill

The most important prep we can have in my opinion is close relationships with friends, family, neighbors and loved ones. Take the opportunity this Christmas to reach out and connect with people. Maybe plan a spring camping trip, or offer to volunteer teaching skills you have, make a date to have some friends over to work on canning and food storage, or even set a date to go thrift store rummaging after the holidays. Remember: the greatest gift we can give is ourselves!

Happy Holidays!

  1. Great lists! I really like the way you broke them down by price point. One interesting thing about maps. I recently sent away to all fifty states for the official tourist package hoping to get a map for that state. I got a map free of charge (sometimes two) from all but 14 states.

  2. My adult kids are getting 4 person bug-out bags for their families. Except my oldest daughter. She says she has it well in hand. Lives in Connecticut and has weathered 2 hurricanes now, so feels she has their bug-out as well as bug-in, down pat.

  3. My husband made me 2 paracord bracelets. He also made our toddler one too and she loves it 🙂

  4. Great lists! I have been checking out Goal Zero’s solar generator … I would love a sun based back up to my existing gas based generator.
