  • The Perfect Gift--Emergency Essentials Gift Card

    Okay, we’re a week into December. Time to get serious about your Christmas shopping. And fortunately for you, we have the best Christmas present idea ever! Ready?

    Ta-da! Yes, the Emergency Essentials elves have been working on this special gift, just for you and your unwieldy gift list.  Why a gift card? I’m glad you asked. (I never can resist a list!)

    Emergency Essentials Gift Card

    Five Reasons an Emergency Essentials Gift Card is THE Perfect Gift:

    1.  It’s completely customizable. Depending on the number of giftees on your list, how well you like each of them, and your budget, you can pick the amount pre-loaded onto the card. You can choose a set amount of $15, $25, $50, $100, or $500 (for those who have been very good). But if that’s not your style, you can create a custom gift card amount online up to $100 or you can call in and request any amount by phone! You know, for those who would really appreciate $77.34 worth of emergency supplies.
    2.  There’s no easier present to wrap, send, or pack than a gift card. Traveling for the holidays? Save room in your suitcase by skipping bulky boxes and squashed bows. And send holiday guests home with no extra luggage fees. Sending gifts? A single stamp is much nicer on the wallet than freight charges for a hefty package. Plus, if you only order gift cards, your shipping costs will be FREE. Merry Christmas to everyone!
    3.  Eliminate post-holiday let-down by giving the gift of shopping! The tree will come down and the gingerbread will run out, but before the socks and ties and new kitchen appliances get put away and forgotten, your friends and family will remember that they still have a surprise gift—the perfect gift!—just waiting for them to pick it out.
    4.  If those on your gift list are already preppers (your CERT buddies, your discount group), there’s no question they’ll love this. A gift card let’s you strike just the right chord, without having them submit an inventory to figure out what they really need.
    5.  And for those non-preppers on your list, this is just the right introduction to emergency preparation. A gift card will encourage them to browse the store or the site, allow them to get familiar with supplies and resources available, and let them start their own preparation with something that really interests them.

     

    See? Win-win-win…win-win. Christmas shopping, solved. You’re welcome!

    Holiday Gift Guide: $50 and Under

    The holidays are just around the corner, but there’s still time to get a jump on your holiday shopping this year.

    Over the past two weeks we’ve given you gift ideas that’ll help your loved ones get prepared. You’ve seen options for gifts $10 and under and for gifts between $10 to $25. Here are some ideas for gifts between $25 and $50.

    My family is crazy into outdoor adventures—rock climbing, backpacking, skiing/snowboarding, canyoneering—all of it. We’re always looking for new gear that’ll make our trips more comfortable. Whether your loved ones are diehard adrenaline junkies or just love the outdoors, these gifts will bring a smile to their faces.

      1. Suisse Sport K-2 5° Sleeping Bag-- $49.99
         
        This sleeping bag is perfect for three-season camping (fall, winter, and spring). The Suisse Sport bag features a durable outer shell, with an inner double layer quilting and insulation to provide maximum warmth. It also has a full chest battle and draft tube to keep your body heat from escaping.  So if you enjoy winter camping, or hate being cold even in the crisp temperatures of spring and fall, this bag will keep you toasty warm.

      3. Castlepine™ Internal Frame Backpack (green)--$34.95
         
        When you have to carry all your gear on your back (I’m thinking 50 milers, campouts, or other backpacking trips), it’s important to have a pack that’s strong enough to hold the weight you need, and durable enough to last as long as you do (and likely longer). This pack is great for backpacking trips or larger-scale emergency kits with its 3,200-cubic-inch capacity. Available in red and navy.

      5. Gerber Gator Combo Axe II with Saw--$50.00
         
        This combo is great because in one compact item, you get an axe and a saw. The Gerber Gator Axe II is longer than the original, giving you a stronger striking force. The handle is covered with the Gerber Gator texturing to give you a better grip, even in wet conditions. This is a gift that can be used in an emergency or in your regular outdoor adventures.

      7. Katadyn MyBottle MicroFilter--$49.95
         
        Having clean water is essential no matter where you are. The Katadyn MicroFilter is a great filter for on-the-go expeditions because you can filter water as you drink it. The microfilter removes bacteria and pathogenic cysts (such as Giardia and Cryptosporidim).  This MicroFilter gives you clean, fresh-tasting water.

      9. Twin Peaks Mountain Trails Tent--$49.99
         
        This is another great gift to give outdoor enthusiasts. Tents can be complicated, intricate, and just plain user-UN-friendly. But this lightweight, easy-to-set-up tent provides a quick shelter for 3-4 people. On backpacking trips, a quick set-up is ideal for when it starts to downpour before you’ve had a chance to set up camp—or if you just want to get through setup and focus on the fun stuff.

      11. Goal Zero Rockout Speakers --$39.99
         
        When we go climbing, my brother always brings along his phone and speakers to pump us up. These Rockout Speakers would be the ideal gift for him. They provide a great experience during outdoor adventures, playing your music while keeping your device nestled safely inside. These portable and lightweight speakers have an internal battery that prevents it from draining your device’s battery, so you don’t have to worry about your phone or other device dying so quickly.

      13. Optimus Crux Lite Canister Stove--$39.95
         
        This lightweight stove is ideal for when you’re on the move. Being able to eat well when outdoors is great; being able to eat well in an emergency is luxury. This high-quality stove is built to last whether your loved ones need it now for adventures, or to store for future emergencies. Within 3 minutes, this portable stove can boil 1 liter of water—that’s pretty quick!

      15. MyChoice™ Hot Cocoa Combo (4 cans)--$25.95
         
        My family loves to drink hot chocolate with our dinner when we’ve just gotten off the snowy slopes and need to warm up. This combo gives you four delicious flavors (French Vanilla, Mint Truffle, Milk Chocolate, and Raspberry) for one price. This gift is a great option for all of your loved ones—whether or not they’re outdoor enthusiasts. Hot chocolate just makes the evening complete when you cuddle up to watch a movie or read a book with the snow falling outside your window.

        This power pack is fantastic outdoors or in emergency uses. The Switch 8 can power smart phones, flashlights, GPS, tablets, laptops, or anything else that powers with a USB. It can be charged with a USB plug or a solar panel, and is no bigger than a fat marker. It’s simple to use for when you are canyoneering, skiing, or need to charge your device on the go.

      19. The Reliance Fold-n-Filter--$47.50 
         
        The Fold-n-Filter is water storage with built in water treatment. You can filter up to 200 gallons of water by simply squeezing the container to dispense the water you need to use. It even rolls up for storage and weighs in at just one pound. The filter is great to hang from a tree when camping, or to have on hand during an emergency. This is a great way to store clean, filtered water for you and your loved ones

  • Crazy for Christmas! Holiday Gift Combos

    _MG_5121_crop

    Round here, at what some like to call the “North Pole” Santa’s little helpers are getting pretty stoked about the coming holidays. In fact, try as we might, we haven’t been able to restrain them from singing carols and obsessively checking the Naughty/Nice list.

    The bad news? Reindeer droppings in the office. The good news? Early deals on great gift ideas.

    Two of our favorites are the holiday gift combos. No wrapping paper? No time? No problem. These little babies come with 10-12 gifts, along with the same number of gift bags and bows. You can have the perfect little present assembled in seconds, with zero time spent hunting through red and green bins for bits of ribbon or tissue paper. Buy in bulk and you can check neighbors, teachers, co-workers, the bus driver, and the mail lady all off your gift list in one fell swoop. Genius!

    Right now, we’ve got two holiday gift combos available. Get one of each, and spread twice the Christmas cheer!

    Hotspots Holiday Gift Combo 

    Caroling, sledding, snowball battles—all our favorite winter outdoor activities are more fun when we can feel our fingers. Give the gift of warmth with 10 [Hotspot heat packs]. The packs are reusable and stay warm for up to two hours.

    Need something a bit more substantial? How about 100 hours of peace of mind for that special someone? These smokeless, odorless emergency candles not only look snazzy in red, but lend themselves to all sorts of sentimental metaphors (“light of my life,” “you light my way,” “I’ll be your candle on the water…”) (Too much?). A thoughtful gift that can be used in an emergency or for every day, the candle gift combo comes with 12 candles, 12 gift bags, and 12 bows—and it’s currently more than 40% off the regular price! Each one of these candle gifts you give your loved one only costs you about $4.20.
