Help a survivalist prepare for a doomsday scenario with these potentially life saving gifts for every type of prepper.
My Top Gift Choice For Preppers
Having a supply of clean water that is safe to drink is the most important thing for any prepper as we can't stay alive for long without it, which makes this water filter kit such an essential item for them to have on hand in case of a doomsday scenario.
Do you know someone that keeps a few months worth of supplies in the garage and is constantly talking about the collapse of society and impending doom?
Because if you do then you have a prepper and a survivalist in your life.
So how about getting them a gift to help them build up their defence against future threats?
Because even though they may seem a bit crazy and over the top at times, the way 2020 is panning out shows they may just be on to something after all!
And whether your prepper is fearful of Doomsday or is into bushcraft, homesteading, living off the grid, or full out ready for battle with the zombies, there are plenty of gift options out there for them.
So I've put together the following list of survival gifts for preppers that cover all of these bases and more.
1. A Mask To Protect Them From Chemical Attacks
Every serious prepper will want to have a full face gas mask on hand for when the sh*t really hits the fan.
Because if you come under a nuclear or chemical attack then just a few gulps of the toxic air will finish you off.
So you'll need a mask to wear that can protect you by purifying and detoxifying the air and helping you to survive.
And it'll also need to be able to protect your eyes from the toxic chemicals in the air too.
So for a mask fit for any disaster check out the PD-100 Full Face Respirator Gas Mask.
As this one will protect your face from toxic chemicals, keep your eyes clear, and have you breathing healthy air while all around you goes to hell.
Making it a gift any survivalist will love.
2. A Versatile Survival Knife
A good survival knife is worth it's weight in gold to any prepper or a survivalist.
As this will be your go to tool to help you survive out in the wild.
Because it allows you to cut and carve wood, set traps, hunt and skin animals for food, as well as giving you a weapon to defend yourself with if needs be.
So treat them to a strong, versatile, and reliable survival knife such as the Esee 4.
As this one will do everything they need it to do and a whole lot more.
Survival knives are also good gifts for campers, and you can check out our camping gift ideas by clicking here.
3. A Survival Axe For Chopping Wood
While cutting and carving wood with a survival knife is fine, for more heavy duty work you are going to want a survival axe instead.
As having one of this in your locker lets you chop away to your hearts content when building a shelter or collecting wood for the fire.
And survival axes in particular are the best choice, as they are small and lightweight so easy to use, but still super powerful and long lasting.
Plus they have a hammer section on the back of the axe head which lets you hammer and crush things with it too.
And a good example of one that makes for an ideal gift for a survivalist is the Schrade survival axe.
4. A Multi-Tool For General Maintenance Tasks
Another handy thing to have in your Doomsday bunker toolkit is a multi-tool.
As there will always be something that needs fixing and you probably won't have the luxury of having all your tools with you.
So gifting a prepper the Leatherman Surge heavy duty multi-tool is a fantastic idea.
As this one contains 21 tools in one, including pliers, snips, screwdrivers, blades, saws, and even a bottle opener.
Which means they'll always have the exact tool they need in their pocket to fix any problems.
5. A Tactical Backpack To Keep Things Safe And Organised
A good tactical backpack is something that any prepper or survivalist will want to keep their stuff safe and secure if they have to move around in search of safety and shelter.
And they'll be delighted to receive the 5.11 RUSH72 as a gift.
As this one has all the compartments and special features they need, such as a hydration pocket, multiple dividers, side pockets, and a rugged waterproof exterior.
And it's strong enough to survive in harsh environments such as a post-apocalyptic world.
While the shoulder and waist straps make it easy to carry without putting stress on your body.
And the 55-liter capacity means you can fit a hell of a lot into it, although you can get them in smaller sizes if this is too big.
6. A Military Grade Compass To Find Their Way
We are all spoilt in this day and age by having maps and GPS signals on our smartphones that mean we can find our way wherever we are.
But what if one day those mobile signals go down?
Because that is how a prepper thinks, and in times like that they might need a manual compass to find their way out of danger, especially if they live in rural areas.
So gifting them a top of the range compass like the Suunto MC2G navigator is something they'll appreciate.
As this has a globally balanced needle and can be used accurately anywhere in the world.
7. A Tough And Durable Tactical Watch
If you really want to treat a prepper or survivalist, how about getting them a Casio G Shock watch?
As these watches are perfect during tough times, being rugged, shockproof, and water resistent up to 660 feet.
And they're full of features that will be more than handy, such as a digital compass, a barometer, a thermometer, sunrise and sunset information, as well as being solar powered.
So they'll have all the information they need to survive if they find themselves out in the wilderness.
And even in times of peace and stability these watches are pretty cool too!
So check out the Casio G Shock Rangeman watch for a good example of what's on offer.
8. A Headlamp For Hands-Free Illumination
Being able to move around and see what you're doing if the electricity and lights cut out during a crisis could be vitally important for your safety.
And you'll also want to keep your hands-free to carry supplies or to defend yourself against any enemies while doing this.
So the ideal solution is to use an LED headlamp such as the Black Diamond Storm.
As this one is comfortable and unobtrusive to wear, is super bright, has night vision settings, and is waterproof and dustproof.
Making it a great gift for any prepper or survivalist to guard against a blackout.
9. LED Lanterns To Light Up The Bunker
Headlamps are great when you're on the move or exploring the outside, but inside your bunker you'll want a more permanent form of lighting.
And this is where LED lanterns come in.
As spreading a few of these around the place will keep it well lit during dark mornings and evenings if the electricity supply is cut.
So one or more of these would make a welcome gift for a preppers bunker, with a great choice being the Coleman twin LED lantern.
10. A Night Vision Monocular To See In The Dark
If you want help staying safe at night, or perhaps when hunting for food after dark, then a night vision monocular is a massive help.
As one of these allows you to illuminate the pitch black scene without alerting anything or anybody to your presence, and be able to see far into the distance.
So they are a fantastic gift idea for a prepper to add to their survival kit, and you won't go wrong by getting them the Bushnell Equinox Z monocular.
As this one lets you see things up to 750 feet away, can take good quality images and video, and has a 4.5x magnification and 3x digital zoom so you can really see what's going on.
11. A Water Filtration Kit For Clean Water
Having access to fresh and clean water is critical to human life, as we can't live for more than 3 days without it.
So one of the very first things a prepper needs to consider is how they are going to secure a clean water supply if things go south.
And one of the best ways they can do this is by getting their own water filtration system installed that can remove impurities from rainwater and other water sources and make it safe to drink.
So getting a prepper the Berkey water filter kit makes for a lovely gift for them.
As while it isn't the big water filter tank that they'll want to get for their bunker, it's big enough to give them enough clean water to survive on, and also small enough to carry around to get purify water on the move.
12. A Water Storage Container So They Have Fresh Supplies On Hand
Having somewhere to store clean water in case of emergencies is another great thing for a prepper to do.
As this buys you time while you work out where to get more fresh water from.
So giving a prepper a couple of water storage containers like the LCI plastic water can makes for a great gift.
As these water containers were built for the US military, hold 5 gallons of water each, can be carried around easily, and will keep the water safely.
And they look pretty damn cool as well!
13. A Portable Power Station To Keep Them Juiced Up
You don't realise how much you rely on electricity and power until they are taken away.
So in the event of a disaster you'll need to have other forms of power supply at the ready to see you through.
Which means a portable power station like the Goal Zero Yeti Lithium is a vital part of a preppers kit.
As this give them up to 187 hours of battery life to power their equipment or charge up their phones until they can find a more permanent solution.
So one of these is a gift that they'd appreciate for sure.

Another good way to stay charged up when electricity is cut is with a solar USB charger.
As this uses the power of the sun to recharge your important devices and keep you going.
And the one above is a good choice as a gift for a prepper.
As it's rugged and has 3 USB ports to charge up multiple devices, while also doubling up as a flashlight too.

And these coolers are ideal as they are built to be really strong and sturdy, so perfect in times of trouble!
18. A Super Warm And Comfortable Sleeping Bag
If the power suddenly gets cut off in the middle of winter, staying warm can become a massive problem, even when you are staying inside.
Now there are a few ways you can combat this, from investing in a wood stove, buying some heaters to run off the generator, or wrapping yourself up in multiple layers of thermal and fleece clothing.
And another way is by getting yourself a super warm sleeping bag.

21. A Portable Pressure Shower To Stay Clean
While personal hygiene isn't strictly essential for your survival in the case of a disaster, it's still pretty important for most of us.
As you'll feel a whole lot worse if you can't clean yourself up, not to mention stinking the place out.
