Title: Christmas Present Prep
Post by: cruisin on November 30, 2012, 04:40:18 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.

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 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.   ;)

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
