Gifting preps to relatives.

Updated: Nov 19, 2020

For me it was quite an eye opener to have candid conversations with a broad spectrum of people at the Melbourne Arms and Militaria fair we exhibited at back in 2018.

Many families spoke of how they learned lots from the Doomsday Preppers show on Channel 73 , 7mate.

Most said they worried about their nieces, nephews or grandchildren as their parents don't have any survival skills and don't prep.

They often added that they knew their relatives would however come to ask for food if shit did indeed hit the fan, which is a source of frustration for many in the prepping community; who often get mocked by their relatives who are blowing money on all of life's luxuries but who'll be the first to come knocking if things get bad.

I broached this subject with ease - When the kids have a birthday or Christmas or Easter or any occasion fit for a present just gift them camping gear, they'll use it on school camps and holidays if they get the chance and they'll have it on hand if S.H.T.F some day.

I start my little relatives off off with a water filter bottle and a copy of the weed foragers handbook and a dynamo torch.

Give them a few pieces of the jigsaw puzzle and they'll add to it.

As for your in-laws or siblings we sell off the shelf bug out bags if you want the adults to be prepared immediately.

In short as with most families in prepping not all of the members of my family are into prepping so everyone gets prepping presents. Adults I start with a major bleed first aid kit, a kidney cup and an army stove.

Don't want to pay double postage or want to fuss with finding a card?

No worries add your loved ones details and a message you'd like in a card in the comments section at the checkout and I'll happily write your message in a card and send it all off to them and I'll send you the tracking number.

As we say, better to have and not need than to need and not have!

If you have any questions I'll answer your call personally 8-6 seven days a week
