One common concern among beginner preppers is, “I want to introduce this to my family and friends, but I don’t want them to think we’re crazy.” This can be a delicate situation. Come on too strong and you are likely to scare them off completely. That is why we love these small survival gifts. They are not intimating or aggressive. Their multiple uses make them a perfect introduction to emergency preparedness.
One item we are currently in love with is the survival bottle. In a pre-packed 1-liter bottle you will find a variety of emergency basics. Because they are lightweight and compact, they are great for camping, the car or the office. They are also inexpensive, making them a perfect gift for a relative or friend.
The survival bottle kit featured here includes:
- 1 BPA-free bottle
- 1 LED flashlight with batteries
- 1 lightstick
- 1 survival whistle
- 1 emergency blanket
- 1 emergency poncho
- 1 carabiner
- 1 plastic zipper bag
- 1 multi-tool
- First aid supplies
- 1 waterproof document holder
You can purchase the premade kits or buy the supplies in bulk to create your own. Keep several on hand for unexpected birthdays or holiday gatherings. I can’t think of anyone that wouldn’t appreciate one of these for their vehicle, RV or camping supplies.
