Christmas Present Prep
« on: November 30, 2012, 05:40:18 PM »
What does everyone think about a Christmas thread with links to items that we are getting or want to get for friends and family? I think it would be a big help for some of us that draw a blank while shopping especially for little items we can find online that would make great stocking stuffers etc.

I think it is a great idea, I know I would be very interested in seeing what others are getting.   I actually just ordered some stuff for myself last night for my wife to "give" me for Christmas. 
You only get one shot at life. There are no do-overs. Live up to your own expectations, be proud of who you are, and above all be happy!

I would also love some ideas.  I need to put together a gift basket for a fund raiser.  The theme is "Self Rescuing Princess"


My MIL is getting a canning funnel and rack for Christmas.

Along with this Ball canning book (I picked the book up on clearance at Lowes a couple of months ago)

My hubby is going to have a motorcycle Christmas, again. Last year he got all the safety gear to ride in, this year he's getting the stands, tools, etc to do his own work on the bike, and maybe some other people's bikes too.

We also picked out a small generator for our end-of-the-year gift.

I don't know what I'm getting. He keeps talking about a stripper pole  ::) Guess that would help me get in shape  ;D
I've seen the village and I don't want it raising my children.

The kids are getting AM/FM/SW BOB radios in their stockings, this model: http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=38314.0

Mulling over a CB for a friend who keeps putting it off.
Build it or buy it, start it up and try it, maybe even fry it.  Otherwise you'll never know if it works.

I intend to get my daughter/son-in-law a 410w car battery inverter, 100'extension cord & splitter.
They don't have room for a generator but this would get them some creature comforts when the power goes out for under $100. Should help in keeping him from having video game withdrawals.   ;)
Got to keep on keepin on

All great Idea even the stripper pole ;D although my wife would probably not agree.  I am going to get the wife an ulu knife from amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KPJ2ES/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&smid=A1ME7BONTG7KC5 and possibly a pressure canner just not sure yet.

The kids are pretty specific on what they want but might throw some other items in.

Ordered this for one cousin and his family today:  http://www.directive21.com/products/royal-berkey-system/

Giving out several of these to various friends & family members with the request that when they are finished that they donate the DVD to their local library:    http://backtoedenfilm.com/

Also sending out this to those who may have never considered "prepping" as a gentle way to ease them into the idea:  http://www.ldsavow.com/PrepManualGeneral.html

For kiddies stocking stuffers, flashlights, wool socks, & TSP copper:  http://tspcopper.com/copper-bullion.html

"Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.” –U.S. Senator Daniel Webster (1782-1852)
