Prepper Gift List – Get Them What They Really Want!

I hate coming up with gift ideas.  I also don’t like getting gifts.  I always seem to get presents that I don’t really need or want.  So, I want to help my fellow Preppers or their significant others, with some great ideas.  This is my Prepper Gift List. 

HINT: If your significant other doesn’t know what to get you, send them a link to this article.

Below you will find some DIY gift ideas as well as gifts for those who just don’t have the time to make something.

DIY Food Bucket – This one is easy and well, it will help the giftee survive in case of an emergency.  Grab a bucket and lid from Home Depot or Lowes.  Fill the bucket with canned food for an emergency.  You should throw in a good can opener too. If the foods aren’t ready to eat like soups, etc…, make sure you throw in some easy to make recipes with the canned food storage your placing in the bucket.

You can also use this same premise to make a Hygiene bucket or Sanitation bucket of supplies.

BLACK FRIDAY DEAL ALERT – If you don’t want to waste time making your own food bucket, pick one up from Legacy Foods.  They have great food buckets that will last many years – CLICK HERE.

An Altoids Tin Survival/Boo-Boo/Urban Kit is another great DIY gift.  I’m very partial to the Boo-Boo Kits myself.  This small kit can be kept at the office in a desk drawer, in a vehicle, purse, backpack or even on you, in a pocket.  This is easy to assemble and the giftee will always remember you when they open up and use their kit!

My experience with Hurrican Harvey proved this little flashlight’s worth to me over and over.  The Outlite A100 Portable Ultra Bright Handheld LED Flashlight is a powerful light that anyone would love you for giving it to them when they are in need of a light.  You can also purchase two rechargeable batteries that will give you a lot of light when you need it!

BLACK FRIDAY DEAL ALERTHydroBlu Jerry Can – You’re going to hear a lot about this one in the near future! This Jerry Can is a water filter that anyone can use.  It will hold 5 gallons of water and filter it out as you pump it.  This is a must for any survival enthusiast or anyone who thinks they might go through a disaster or crisis situation.

If your giftee is getting serious about their preparedness, then they are going to need to learn how to cook over an open flame.  The Stove in a Can is an easy way to make that happen.  The stove comes with fuel and is easy enough for anyone to use.  It is another means to cook food and heat water during an emergency situation.  


Are you Conflicted? – If you’re looking for an unusual gift, maybe for a stocking stuffer, office party or even a white elephant gift, this will be the “Talk of the Presents.”   Conflicted is a card game with survival scenarios on the back of each card.  You or the person responding to the scenario will be “conflicted” on how to answer it.  These aren’t easy scenarios. There is a lot to consider here!  Check out Conflicted Cards Here!

If you’re looking for a deal, here are 3 coupon codes that you could use until Nov. 28!

  1. Coupon Code Any7BF – Pick ANY 7 decks (even different combinations) and get them for $99. This include’s Southern Prepper1’s new deck!
  2. Coupon Code B2G1BF – Buy ANY 2 decks (even different combinations) and get the 3rd free. Yes, SP1’s deck included.
  3. Coupon Code D840BF – Get Deck 8: Conspiracy Deck for 40% Off. This incredible deal on one of our most popular decks is a way of saying thank you for all your support this year.

Amazon Prime – a gift that would “keep on giving” all year long is giving someone Amazon Prime.  There are so many items that you can purchase from Amazon, the list is crazy huge! 

Everybody purchases on Amazon.  But when you give someone the gift of Prime, they get their purchases in 2 days AND it’s FREE shipping!  Anyone with Prime also has access to FREE Movies, TV Shows, and Music!  It is a great deal! Click on the banner below to check out Amazon Prime!


Of course, you could always buy a gift from Amazon’s Survival or Outdoor section.  And then there are all the survival books to choose from.  I would suggest that EVERY Prepper have Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy’s Survival Medicine Handbook in their library!

DIY Fire Kit – Another great DIY gift item would be a fire kit.  You could purchase small plastic bags and put cotton balls and vaseline inside and smash it to get the vaseline all over the cotton.  You can add a Ferro Rod, lighter, waterproof matches, some lint from the dryer and maybe a few tea lights.  

I tried to provide some different gifts rather than the usual “Prepper Gift List.”  I hope you find something the Prepper in your life loves!
