    I have a son in law to buy for that is a budding young prepper but already had the property appropriate for his purpose. When I bought the family a 72 hour emergency food supply and 5 gallon water container for Christmas one year, he felt it appropriate to share that he and my daughter we also on the same page. We have our "Christmas" on January 8 this year and daughter mentioned "prepper food, tools or supplies" for his with list. My limit per kid is $75. Any suggestions? They have a home, land, fireplace and some food preps. I was thinking light sources or more water collection/storage. Any ideas?

    For price, calories, and longevity, rice is pretty good. Soy sauce is a good flavoring.With a tiny budget, mac & cheese might be a good buy, as it will probably be used very slowly, but ready to use in an emergency.

    Hmmm...good ideas here. I think I have the makings of a good "combo package" of heirloom seeds (already have them), mac and cheese, one of my mainstay sides, seasonings for his other preps, and some other ideas.

    FYI...kids live on a homestead of hundreds of acres. Wildlife is there. They have two little boys. The property is perfect but too huge for solar. They have wood but that is it. They are over reliant on electricity now but I can't afford to change them out. I have ideas now. That is helpful. Love the communication idea.

    2 or 3 of those high intensity cree t6 headlights you see on ebay are always a good present, you can never have enough torches and the headlamps leave you hands free.
    Too late for this xmass of course
