Christmas is the perfect time to get some preparedness gear under your tree or give some to someone you care about. And today I have the second half of the 12 Days of Christmas gift giving set–Preparedness Gear 12 Days of Christmas! Pick a loved one or unsuspecting neighbor and treat them to a little preparedness this Christmas. I’ve got a listing of the items below with some suggestions for what you could give. I tried to make this adjustable for different budgets by not specifying an amount on anything so you can give something small or something larger–your choice. And the Preparedness Gear 12 Days of Christmas coordinates perfectly with the Food Storage 12 Days of Christmas. These two sets are designed to mix and match so you can do all food storage or all gear or some of each to fit your needs and your budget! I want these to be usable, so in the tags, I even left the day number blank so you can arrange them however you want. You can copy the images from this page and make them any size you want OR I have a printable PDF file here that has them ready to print 6 to a page! All because I love you and want to help spread preparedness to all your friends this year!
