Best Gifts to Give the Prepping Hesitant

Most preppers probably have some friends or family members that are somewhat reluctant to get on board with prepping. With the holiday season approaching, one simple way to help nudge the prepping hesitant in the right direction is by getting them a gift that will help prepare them for the future, but will also be useful to them in other non-disaster situations as well.

Here are 7 gifts that would be perfect for the prepping hesitant.

1. Jar sealer

A jar sealer is a handy device that can be used to seal jars of anything from salads to coffee grounds to keep them fresh. It’s something that every prepper should own, but that the average person will enjoy as well.

2. Water filter

A water filter provides clean, great-tasting water that’s ideal for both everyday home use and emergency use. You can use it camping or in an emergency. Regardless, it’s a great tool to have on hand.

3. Cast iron skillet

Cast iron cookware has recently been praised for being durable, easy-to-clean, and simple to cook with. It also happens to be the best option for cooking over campfires and camping stoves, making it ideal for preppers.

4. Stainless steel water bottle

Everyone could use a durable water bottle that motivates them to stay hydrated all day. A stainless steel bottle also comes in handy during times when constant hydration is even more vital, like during a disaster.

5. Backpack or daypack

It’s hard to keep all your survival gear on your body at all times, which is why having a backpack with a large capacity is essential. Get a backpack for your friend or family member so that they’ll have it for both emergency and recreational use.

6. Sleeping bag

A high-quality sleeping bag is useful for preppers and campers alike. Make sure to buy one that is 0°C rated so that it withstands cold temperatures well. No one wants to freeze while sleeping.

7. Tent

A two-man tent is a good temporary shelter from the elements. It can also, of course, be used for camping or other recreational outings.

8. Multifunctional watch

A watch is a great accessory and could even save your life. This multifunctional survival gear watch is good for camping, boating, hunting, and more. With a whistle, compass, fire starter, and other features, who wouldn’t love it?

9. Survival knife

It never hurts to have a pocket knife on hand. But why get a knife, when you can get your friends an Army survival knife. This knife is made of stainless steel and can be used for outdoor activities, woodworking, and more.

Preppers or otherwise, your loved ones will get good use out of these practical gifts whether they end up needing them for an emergency situation or not!
