The continuing pandemic, high inflation, supply chain problems are making this year is even more challenging than previous years, making everyone more anxious and insecure about the future. Gift giving season is upon us so why not choose items that can help recipients get more prepared? You don’t have to be a hard-core prepper to appreciate gifts that come in handy time and again, for everyday living as well as emergencies.

I scoped out upcoming Black Friday deals on Amazon and found the following interesting deals. (Full disclosure-this site is an Amazon Affiliate.

Battery tester $8.99

Avoid keeping drained batteries-they will fail you when you need them the most. A battery tester would be a great stocking stuffer for anyone, not just preppers.

Pocket Knife $30.64

This little knife is well-rated and reasonably priced. It has a 3 inch blade and when closed is only 4.25 inch so it can easily fit in a pocket or purse. I carry a pocket knife and it has helped me in countless situations.
