Let’s admit it: those of us who like to be prepared can be hard to buy for. Dads? They’re even more notoriously difficult to choose a gift for – they don’t want another shirt or a fancy tie, they want practical and useful. “If you’re going to spend money on me, make it worth it.” I’ve heard those words numerous times. So… what can you do to celebrate Father’s Day with an always-prepared man, without struggling to find the perfect gift? Give the Dad in your life the gift of your time – he loves you, and he’ll appreciate it more than any old wallet organizer!
Being prepared requires a lot of time. Time for planning, gathering, organizing, and storing. This year, offer the gift of time to help your Dad Prepper plan for a new project or pick up new supplies. He’s planning for you, so spend some time with him and enjoy his wisdom.
Pull Some Garden Duty
If your Dad or husband is a gardener, I am certain that he will appreciate any time offered for gardening duties. Gardens (as we all know) are a lot of work. Offer to do some weeding, help stake plants, get seeds or plants in the ground, prepare paths, or help devise a system to keep critters out.
Help With Bug-Out Scouting
Most preppers have The Plan. You know, the Plan for what they’ll do and where they’ll go if a major crisis occurs. But, most preppers also like to have a back up plan in case their bug-out location is compromised or inaccessible. Why not spend Father’s Day weekend helping them scout out new Bug-Out locations or beefing up their existing Bug-Out spot.
