As preppers, we want to be ready for what life throws at us – be it illness, off grid living environments or a TEOTWAWKI event. We want to ensure that our loved ones are cared for even in their darkest moments, and nothing says “I love you” quite like a prepper gift. So, without further adieu, here are some gift ideas that will melt the hearts of any prepper out there.

Essential Oils Kit $20.00

This is the perfect gift to give the homesteader. Essential oils can be used for a wide variety of needs including soap making, tinctures, topicals, breathing treatments, and much more. Adding a few drops to a spray water bottle will help you naturally add a pleasing smell to your home too. Ensure that you get medicinal grade essential oils. I like Mountain Rose Herbsessential oils because they are certified organic and support the sustainability projects.

Titanium Escape Ring $70.00

Thinking of giving jewelry to your special someone? Why not make it practical gift. This titanium ring is equipped with a shim that can be used to open single-locked handcuffs, as well as a saw to can easily cut through zip-ties, rope and other non-metallic materials. This stainless steel tool is 2″x18″x1/64,” and reviews indicate it is unusually flexible. Give the gift that ensures your loved one can evade capture or saw your way out of a problem.

Kelly Kettle $79.00

This little 13 oz. stove is great for camping trips, used for your bug out gear or good for your off grid tools. The Kelly Kettle has a stainless steel base and is efficient in heating food and boiling water. For around twenty dollars more, you can get the complete Kelly Kettle kit.

Mason Jar Oil Lamps $25.00

I came across these in a forum one day and love how practical they are. If you are practicing a self sustainable lifestyle, then you must have an ample supply of mason jars lying around. The lamp lids fit a regular wide mouth canning jar and comes in a pack of 4. All that’s needed in some lamp wicks and a glass lamp chimney and you’re all set!

Pressure Cooker $210

One of my favorite gifts from my husband was a pressure cooker and I have put it to good use over  the years! Not only can you use them for canning, but the food you prepare in them are so delicious and take half the time to cook as compared to other cooking methods. I highly recommend the All American pressure cookers, but I have also heard wonderful things about the Presto brand as well.

Further, Victorio fruit peelers and food strainers make excellent additions to the canning gear. Anyone who has ever had to strain seeds out of berries will thank you for this thoughtful gift.
