25 Great Holiday Gifts for Preparedness

I am a BIG fan of practical gifts. I love things that I can use every day, as well as things that may come in handy in a situation where we need to be prepared. These twenty-five gifts are great for preparedness, but also would be a big hit for the hikers, campers, fisherman, and hunters in your life. Why not give the gift of preparedness this holiday season? Your gift will be far less likely to be discarded or tossed aside after the “glow” of the holidays wears off. In fact, your family and friends may someday thank you!
