Every prepper I know would rather receive gifts that help them prepare for emergencies or store food than receive traditional gifts like clothing or jewelry. Any prepper in your life would be extremely pleased to receive any of these exciting DIY gifts this Christmas! Lucky for you, these gifts are as easy to make as they are special!
Beautiful and Simple Firestarters
A firestarter is the perfect gift for any prepper, since you never know when you’ll need to start up a fire, and a bottle of lighter fluid is both stinky and not-decorative.
With just a few of these easy DIY firestarters on hand, you have an easy and sweet-smelling way to start a fire fast at any time, so make a few extra for gifts this year. A pre-made firestarter is great for emergency situations when you need a fire fast!
Even if you never have to start a fire in an emergency, you can still use the firestarters throughout the year to warm the home anytime. My particular favorite are the scented wax pinecone firestarters. You can easily customize these gifts with a variety of scents and packaging to make them even more special!
Customized First Aid Kits or Emergency Kits
Everyone, even the youngest preppers, can benefit from additional first aid and emergency supplies. At this time of year, many individual packets of supplies are available, making it the perfect time to assemble a customized first aid kit. Make the kit more personal and fun by using whimsical colors, packaging, and monogramming for a suitable gift for children, teens, or adults.
