Christmas is almost here! If you’re a prepper, survivalist, or homesteader (or whatever you call yourself), here are some things you might want to add to your wishlist. And if you know anyone who is into preparedness or self-sufficiency, get them something they’ll love.
Most of the items on this list should fit inside a standard Christmas stocking (in some cases, a large stocking). Whenever I could, I included links to the product page on Amazon.com.
For your convenience, I organized the items by cost. Most of them are less than $20, but for the big spenders there are a few items that are over $50. I hope this list of stocking stuffers for survivalists gives you some great gift ideas.
