If the first round of gift ideas didn’t help you out much with those difficult-to-buy-for people on your list, here are a few more I’ve come up with.
- Natural fiber merino wool long johns or socks
- A roadside emergency kit with jumper cables, tire plugs, etc
- A vehicle bug-out or get-home kit lovingly put together by you (for ideas, see our post on what we carry). Jeff mentioned some ideas in the comments section of the previous post.
- Headlamps, even better if solar battery powered
- A ready-made garden in a can, chosen for the climate your loved one lives in- some ready-made ones are available online or you can create your own from favorite varieties of open-pollinated seeds and seal the packets in a mylar bag. Be sure planting instructions are included!
- The Encyclopedia of Country Living book
- Supplies for a new preparedness hobby (like cheesemaking, quilting, etc).
- For children, how about some things that don’t require electricity- card games, Tinkertoys, or a slingshot.
- And here is a final one for anyone interested in learning about edible and medicinal plants (as we are). For a brief time, the great Wildcraft game will be on sale for nearly half off. Use this link. (Product review coming soon).
Any more ideas? Please share them in the comments section.
