Christmas is almost here and if you don’t have your gifts bought yet, you’re running out of time. Maybe you have a survivalist or post-apocalyptic fan in your family that you want to buy gifts for, but you have no idea what to get. Well, time is running out! Here are eight last-minute prepper gift ideas that are currently offering 2-day prime shipping on Amazon. Get them while you can! (Note: A small percentage of each of these sales will help support this website. It won’t increase your price at all though!)
1. Tactical Christmas Stocking with Molle Gear
This one is only $24.90 on Amazon and comes with Prime Shipping (but there are only a few left, so act fast!) It features heavy-duty carry, two rotating clip hangers, and MOLLE loops on the outside of the stocking. Rated 5 stars with 147 customer reviews, so you know this one’s a good pick.
2. Titan SurvivorCord (Military Paracord + Fishing Line + Waxed Jute + Conductive Wire]
You might be hard-pressed to find a better choice than this one, and it can still be purchased with arrival before Christmas. It only costs $21.98. The cord features multiple strands when split, including a fishing line, a waxed jute, and a copper wire. Rated 5 stars out of 518 customer reviews.
3. NukAlert Nuclear Radition Detector/Monitor with Alarm
Well, we didn’t say everything on here would be cheap! This one has 4 stars out of 31 customer reviews and costs $136. It also comes with a warranty to repair and replace it free of charge. It alerts you if you’re being exposed to dangerous levels of radiation, and it’s compact sized to fit on a key chain. A purchaser noted that it didn’t even set off alarms when he carried it through TSA security, but that is not guaranteed! Another purchaser said it comes with a booklet to help understand the readings.
4. Camping Pocket Chainsaw
You never know when you’ll need to saw down tree limbs, but you may not be able to carry huge tools with you while you’re out surviving. So a Pocket Chainsaw is a perfect choice. This one, for $32.80, is available with prime shipping. We haven’t tried this particular version (we tried this one), but it has 4.5 stars out of 87 reviews and people have said it works great. Looks like it’ll make a great survival saw and a great gift.
5. Survivor Filter: Ultimate Water Filter Straw
Many people love the Life Straw for water filter survival, but we actually like this one even more. And while the Life Straw is currently unavailable on Amazon, this one is available with Prime Shipping to get it before Christmas, for only $29.99. It has 4.5 stars out of 450 reviews. The Survivor Filter can be taken apart, cleaned, and reused. The membrane ultra filter lasts for up to 26,417 gallons and the replaceable carbon filter lasts for up 264 gallons (so by some refills!) This is a lot more than the Life Straw. You can use it as a squeeze system, screwed on top of most water bottles, or drink directly from a fresh water source.
6. A Bunch of Food Rations
You never know when you’ll need food rations, and these are available for $60.77 and free Prime shipping. This contains 32 servings — just add water to the pouch. A 30-year taste guarantee.
7. Practical Lock Picking: Second Edition
One thing that every survivalist needs to know how to do is pick locks. This book includes full-color diagrams and easy-to-follow lessons. You can get a paperback for $29 (Prime shipping) or a Kindle version that’s available immediately.
8. Nuclear War Survival Skills: The Essential Book
This is one of our favorite books on how to survive nuclear war. It’s a new edition of Cresson H. Kearny’s book originally published in 1979, updated by Kearny himself in 2001. It comprises years of scientific research conducted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This online listing says you can order the paperback now for $14.37 and it will arrive by Christmas. You can also order a Kindle version if your friend prefers digital copies.
