Hurricane Ian. The Texas Winter Storm. The War in Ukraine. Diesel shortages. 2022 has provided plenty of examples of why preparedness gear is a must-have.
And what better way to give the gift that keeps on giving than to gift your loved ones with essential survival gear so they can overcome whatever life throws at them?
It may not be what they ask for, but it is what they need.
Best Gifts for Him
If you’re looking for a gift for the men in your life, look no further than some of our most popular survival gear. While they can be put away until a disaster happens, they can also be used for camping and exploration.
The Waterproof EMP Faraday Cage Bag shields your equipment from electromagnetic radiation, blocking incoming and outgoing signals, including 4G, 5G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It works like a Faraday Cage but in a smaller, more convenient bag for grab-and-go purposes. Plus, the waterproof feature means it is safe in all environments. Let the man in your life practice going off the grid with a Faraday Bag.
For the man who prioritizes home security, the Outdoor Solar-Powered 212 LED Motion Sensor Light by Ready Hour is an excellent choice. This motion sensor light will work even if the power goes out, ensuring your property is safe from looters during disasters. You can buy one or several, depending on the home’s needs and your budget.
An all-in-one weather radio, such as the 4-in-1 Emergency Solar Flashlight & AM/FM/Weather Radio w/ Hand Crank by Ready Hour, is a great gift idea. No matter the situation, having this radio will allow the owner to stay connected with what is going on in the outside world. Even without batteries, the user will be able to operate this radio. While it is ideal for an emergency, it is an excellent tool to have on hand for camping, hiking, or RV trips.
Give the men in your life the ability to cook any time and any place with the Solo Stove Lite Cooking Kit. This unique kit includes the Solo Stove Lite and Solo Pot 900. The stove allows owners to cook using only twigs, leaves, or paper (no fuel required). The added pot is designed to be easily carried. Whether he is an avid camper, backpacker, or prepper, the Solo Lite Cooking Kit is a must-have.
Best Gifts for Her
One of the best gifts you can give women in your life is peace of mind. The gift of survival gear will enable them to handle even the most dangerous situations. Plus, it’s about as unique as you can get!
No one wants to find themselves in a dangerous situation with a cell phone with no power where they can’t call for help or access GPS. The Wireless Solar PowerBank Charger & 20 LED Room Light by Ready Hour solves this problem. With 20,000 mAh of power, it can charge your devices quickly and provide light so you can find help when you need it.
Everyone should own a first aid kit, but a standard first aid kit doesn’t actually have all you need. For example, if you are hiking with your family and someone suffers a traumatic injury, your alcohol wipes and band-aids won’t help. But the Recon First Aid Kit by My Medic has the tools you need for trauma situations, including broken bones and lacerations. The easy grab-and-go bag should find its place in every vehicle.

- The Prepper’s Medical Handbook
- Backyard Foraging
- Herbal Medic

Imagine being able to stay warm and enjoy a warm meal even without power. That’s what you get with the VESTA Self-Powered Indoor Space Heater & Stove by InstaFire. It allows owners to discreetly heat and cook indoors.
Best Gift for Kids
It’s never too early to teach kids important survival skills. It’s even better when you can teach them these skills using play. These survival gifts are ideal for kids because they combine fun with preparedness education.
Glow sticks are great stocking stuffers for kids. While they can break them and use them to have fun today, you can also tell them about how useful they would be in an emergency, such as signaling for help.
If you want to introduce your kids to survival gear, start with a basic survival kit. This 46-piece set includes a guide with helpful tips. It works as a great teaching tool and allows kids to practice their MacGyver skills. Bonus – It’s small enough for a stocking!
Why give kids a regular old deck of playing cards when you can give them playing cards with preparedness tips? Put these preparedness playing cards in your kids’ stockings, and they’ll have fun playing and learning at the same time.
The Fishing & Hunting Kit by Ready Hour has 127 pieces, which allows you to hunt and fish in emergencies. For the young hunters and fishers in your life, this kit will come in handy on their outdoor adventures.
For the Whole Family
Are you looking for a gift for a whole family rather than individual gifts for each family member? Get them started building their survival gear by providing them with a gift of essentials. The bonus here is they won’t have to rely on your stash should the worst happen!
The Alexapure Pro Water Filtration System is a wonderful gift for an entire family because it can turn any freshwater into clean, safe drinking water. Why is this a good gift? Because many people in the U.S. mistakenly believe their tap water is safe and this amazing system reduces 200+ contaminants in water.
Help a family build up their emergency food supply by giving them a 3-month emergency food supply from Ready Hour. This 3-month emergency food supply has enough food to feed 1 person 2,000 calories a day for 3 months. It will feed a couple for 45 days and a family of 4 for 20 days.
Building a fire is essential in survival situations. It’s necessary for staying warm, cooking food, and purifying water. But finding everything you need to start a fire in a disaster may not be easy. That’s why it is wise to have fire-starting supplies with your survival gear. This kit includes two fire ropes, a plasma lighter, a Ferro rod, and two InstaFire packs.
This gift may be more for your peace of mind. Do you have family members whom you know you’d have to take care of during a disaster because they haven’t prepared themselves? Consider giving this family a preparedness crate that contains 65 emergency essentials, including long-term storage foods, a personal water filtration bottle, an emergency folding stove, and more.
Give your loved ones a gift that keeps on giving, friends.
