Gifts for Survivalists and Doomsday Preppers – My Favorite Ideas!

Know someone who’s stocked up for the collapse of society and the end of the world? Maybe they’re psyched for the coming Zombie apocalypse or TEOTWAWKI. If a prepper is on your Christmas list this year (or maybe their birthday is coming up), here’s some cool gift ideas to get them. I tried to pick out stuff they can have ready for WTSHTF.

Ultimate Survival Knife – with fire starter, whistle, pommel & sharpener.  Highly recommended for wilderness survival.

This really could come in handy!

Smith & Wesson Tactical Pen – Really Cool under $20 Gift Idea.  The survivalist who likes guns will really get a kick out of this. It is a real pen that also serves as a self-defense device.

Cook Food without Electricity, without Fuel! – Easy Way to Cook Food Off the Grid! This well designed stove harnesses the power of the sun to cook and bake food. This would sure be a fun gift to try out! Warning: You may be rewarded with yummy food!

Backpack for EDC or Bug Out Bag – Great Way to Have All Supplies in One Place,  This utilitarian bag has many pockets and appears well designed for creating a bug out bag.

Survival Books with Good Emergency Info – Post Collapse, there won’t be any Internet! Post-collapse, books will become a valuable resource for information. People will want to learn how to grow their own food, learn basic first aid skills, and more. Books may even be good things to barter for ammo, food, medicine, etc. Here are some books with very specific information that a prepper would enjoy having in their library.

Prepper’s Home Defense: Security Strategies to Protect Your Family by Any Means Necessary

Ever wish you could recharge your cell phone battery in seconds? This battery can be used to do a quick recharge. It’s compatible with many phones and MP3 players. This is easy to recharge with a laptop or computer, so it can be used many times.

Cool Clothing for Survivalists – Tactical Clothing for Staying Warm and Dry Here’s some examples of clothing that preppers might pack in their bug out bags or proudly keep in their closets for emergency situations. This clothing conveys a certain look as well as having practical use for keeping warm and dry.

Flag For the American Survivalist – Replica of the Gadsden Flag from 1775.  This flag has been associated with survivalists in the apocalyptic TV show “Jericho.” In recent years it has become a common anti-establishment flag to fly. It has been associated with the tea party.
