Peruse this collection of must-have preparedness items, and we’re sure you’ll find a gift for everyone on your Christmas list.

Food and Cooking Essentials

Food and cooking essentials are ideal for those in your life who love camping or cooking, or who want to up their survival game. While these food and cooking supplies are designed for emergencies, they can be used every day or for hiking and camping trips.

3-Month Emergency Food Kit - Emergency Essentials

Every family should have a stockpile of emergency food, which makes our 3-Month Emergency Supply kit a great gift for the entire family. Whether it’s for your parents, extended family, or even your own clan, this is the gift that will keep on giving.

A 3-month supply is an excellent amount to ensure they will have food when needed, and you won’t have to share your own.

This 3-month emergency food kit has 16 different types of delicious and calorie-rich meals. Plus, it’s made to last 25 years unopened and only requires water to cook.

While it is emergency food, it also works well for outdoor adventures and budget-friendly meal planning.

VESTA Self-Powered Indoor Space Heater & Stove by InstaFire with Canned Heat

Imagine being able to heat your home and cook on a stove even when the power is out.

That’s the gift you will give someone with the VESTA Self-Powered Indoor Space Heater and Stove. No matter what disaster they face, this will come in handy.

Unlike generators or other propane appliances, the VESTA is safe for use indoors!

This allows users to cook without drawing the attention of neighbors or others outside. It also can work as a space heater, heating up to 200 square feet.

InstaFire Inferno Outdoor Biomass Stove

The Biomass Stove is an excellent choice for those who love spending time outdoors.

It’s designed to be portable so it’s easy to take camping.

But what really makes it stand out is its ability to turn leaves and twigs into an adjustable temperature-burning stove fire, reaching up to 1,200° F.

Another bonus – the Biomass Stove is smoke-free!

Ready Hour Stainless Steel Mess Cooking Kit (5-Piece)

This Ready Hour mess cooking kit is compact, lightweight, and easy to store. It includes a 34-ounce pot, a 17-ounce pan, a BPA-free mug, a scrubber, and a nylon mesh bag.

And it’s small enough to grab and go and easy to carry with camping supplies.

With this kit, you can boil water, cook over a campfire, and clean your pots after use. The stainless steel construction means it is built to last and will provide years of use.

Water Filtration Tools

Water is essential for survival. However, it is not easy to always find water that is safe to drink – even in your own home. Many homes in America have unsafe drinking water, which puts thousands of families at risk every year.

Giving the gift of water filtration protects your loved ones from unsafe drinking water in their homes and on the go.

Alexapure Pro Water Filtration System

The Alexapure Pro Water Filtration System allows users to turn any freshwater into cleaner, safer drinking water.

This powerful system reduces 206 contaminants found in drinking water in the U.S. Another plus – it is gravity powered, which means it doesn’t require electricity to run or filter water.

It has the capacity to hold 2¼ gallons of water with a filter capacity of 200 to 5,000 gallons (depending on the number of contaminants).

This means the family who receives this amazing gift will continually be able to enjoy clean, safe drinking water – during emergencies and every day. 

Survival Spring Personal Water Filter

For those in your life who love the great outdoors, this gift promises to be a big hit. The Survival Spring Personal Water Filter is a straw-like water filter, which allows the user to get safe drinking water from almost any natural source.

It’s small enough to store in a purse, pocket, or car console. Each one has the capability to filter up to 300 gallons from fresh water sources.

Fire, Power, and Lighting

You can never have enough lighting gear. It’s always useful! Whether you experience a blackout, go camping, or need to find something during the night in your home, lights come in handy.

But that’s not all.

In addition to lighting, fire gear is also a must-have survival item.

Solar flashlight and radio

Solar Flashlight & AM/FM/Weather Radio w/ Hand Crank

Everyone should own a weather radio, but the Ready Hour 4-in-1 Emergency Solar Flashlight & AM/FM/Weather Radio stands out.

This is because it includes more than you need and has three ways to source power (hand crank, solar, or via a USB port).

In addition to the flashlight, it also includes a pop-up room light with 4 LEDs.

More than just a lighting source, this tool is also a weather radio and a solar charger. You can charge cell phones, iPads, GPS, and more using it. 

InstaFire Tactical Fire Starting Kit

Fires provide a great source of light, as well as heating and the ability to cook meals out in the open.

But it isn’t always easy to start a fire.

With the InstaFire Tactical Fire Starting Kit, your loved ones will be able to quickly start a fire in an emergency or just for outdoor adventures.

The kit includes an InstaFire Pocket Plasma Lighter, an InstaFire Ferro Rod, InstaFire Fire-Starter Granule Pouches (x2), and InstaFire Fire Ropes (x2). These are top-of-the-line fire-starting tools.

Plus, all these important items fit in a grab-and-go carrying pouch.

InstaFire CrossFire Plasma Lighter

Imagine a lighter that never fails – no wind or rain can stop it from providing a flame. That’s how the CrossFire Plasma Lighter works!

This is a USB-rechargeable lighter that produces a dual arc plasma charge rather than the traditional open flame of a lighter.

Once charged, it lights over 350,000 times, so you never have to worry about it running out of fuel or juice to run.

In addition, the lighter itself has an ice and glass breaker.

InstaFire Pocket Plasma Lighter with Flashlight

If your loved one prefers a pocket lighter to take everywhere he goes, give him the InstaFire Pocket Plasma Lighter.

This lighter operates similarly to the CrossFire Plasma Lighter by producing a dual arc plasma torch rather than a traditional open flame.

This amazing lighter lights on every strike – no matter if it is windy or raining. Just charge it and pocket it.

In addition, the pocket lighter also has a multi-mode flashlight.

Ready Hour Wireless Solar PowerBank Charger & LED Light

What’s better than knowing you’ll have light in a blackout? Knowing you will also be able to charge all your devices!

The Ready Hour Wireless Solar PowerBank Charger & LED Light functions as a 20 LED room light and a solar-powered charger.

The charger allows owners to charge up to three devices at once.

It’s a great option for more than just emergencies. Take it on hunting trips, store it in the RV, or bring it with you when you take the family camping.
