10 Great Christmas Gift Ideas for Preppers and Survivalists


Street Survival Skills $21.95
Pretty confident about this one, my latest book “Street Survival Skills”. It explains in detail plenty of valuable, practical real-world skills. Even those that have been into preparedness for a long time will find useful information, no doubt. It also covers the basics for newbies and gets them started in the right direction. Check my video review.

LEATHERMAN - Charge Plus $139.95
The Leatherman Charge is in my opinion the best multitool money can buy and I haven’t found anything better yet even if some favor the Surge. Anyway, fantastic multitool and the Wave is basically the same thing but more budget friendly. Even more affordable and still great Leatheman multool, go with the Sidekick or the tiny PS4.
Victorinox - Manager - Red Translucent Swiss Army Knife 06365Tnp
Victorinox Manager $29.16
I’ve been using this little guy for about a year now and even though I keep proper multiool and folder in my pocket this tiny tool always comes in handy. Great tool for someone that isnt much into preparedness and doesn’t see themselves carrying anything, yet its there in the keychain, always ready.

Olight S1R II 1000 Lumens $69.95
The S1R II is compact, fits in the pocket and recharges with a magnetic contact which is pretty convenient.
Cold Steel SRK Fixed 6" Blade Knife 10-3/4" Length w/Sheath
The SRK is as solid as knife designs go. Used by the Navy SEALS and soldiers around the world, you can’t go wrong with Cold Steel’s Survival Rescue Knife. The size hits that ideal not too big not too small. Somewhat similar to a short Kabar blade geometry but with a tougher construction.

The Taser Pulse uses the same Taser technology used for law enforcement, but in a concealed carry weapon format. Works just like the old Taser, meaning that besides shootings the darts and automatically discharging for 30 seconds, it also works as a stun gun pressing the muzzle against an attacker. The safety on the side activates a laser and LED light and it has a low battery indicator. These are now also legal in New York.
SABRE RED Pepper Gel - Police Strength - Tactical Series with 18-Foot (5.5M) Range, 18 Bursts & Belt Holster
Pepper Spray is cheap, its compact and what’s most important, it WORKS. In my experience it also makes a highly appreciated gift that doesn’t break the bank and it may one day safe a friend or loved one.

Glock OEM Field Knife 6.5" $24.99
In my opinion the best survival knife for the money. 1095 steel at 55 HRC, 6.5” of combat/survival steel, Made in Austria. Get one if you don’t have one already, also a great gift for any outdoors, survivalist or firearms enthusiast.

These rations work well for BOB, 72hs Kits, Get Home Bags, etc. They last for several years, a lot less bulky and cheaper than MRE. Not much in terms of food, think of it as fuel to keep you going. No need to cook or any other type of food preparation.

Glock 19X CO2 Blowback .177 $99.99
Not the real thing but close enough. Glock licensed BB made by Umarex, 18 shot magazine. Glock just came up with the Glock 44 in 22LR, says its for fun and plinking… bet it’s a nice gun but you know what? 1)BB is MUCH cheaper than 22LR 2) You can use it for plinking and practice in your back yard 3) Still capable of killing rats and other tiny pests with a fresh CO2 cartridge.  I have a Glock 19 BB and absolutely love that thing. Would make a hell of a gift for a kid too (as long as he wears eye protection and doesnt “shoot his eye out”)
I’ll keep an eye out and post any deals worth mentioning that I come across. These are of course all from Amazon, and we earn a small percentage on some of the sales made through Amazon Affiliate links, which is much appreciated and helps with the channel.
Thake care!

#3 - the Manager appears to be very nice for EDC. Another possibility is the Compact, an equally impressive selection of tools too. Adding the SAK saw would be awesome !

#10 - have you heard the good news about the new Glock model 44 ? A Glock 19 which is chambered in .22LR ? Talk about genius - Glock is impressive !

Thank you for these ideas Fernando. I hope you and your family have a great Christmas.
