Survival Guides and kits make great gifts for friends who you want to be with after the Zombies try to take over!
There’s nothing quite like being prepared for a disaster, but unfortunately we all have friends or family members who just aren’t. Why not give them the gift of preparedness with either a survival kit or a guide so that they can learn how to get on in a post apocalyptic world, more specifically a zombiefied post apocalyptic world.
I’ve compiled a few gift selections that may help them, of course it wouldn’t hurt to grab a couple of these for yourself because you can never be too prepared!
Written by a former US Army Ranger, Roger Ma the Zombie Combat Manual is a thoroughly comprehensive guide to becoming an effective Zombie combat warrior.
It’s a funny, yet useful read and I think the words of Allie Townsend from Techland.com sums it up well in her blurb about this book when she says –
“It’s a guide for unskilled, inexperienced and slightly out of shape humans threatened by the return of the dead and cites basic combat skills and ordinary household objects as the primary weapons of your defense. Basically, when it comes to the Zombie Apocalypse, this book may be biblical.”
Max Brooks book is also very good at laying out exactly how to survive including his Top Ten Lessons for Surviving a Zombie Attack.
If you don’t get the book above by Roger Ma then this one is the next best thing, in fact some prefer this book to the other……you could just get both to be on the safe side!
This kit includes everything you need to survive for 72 hours while you’re regrouping and planning your next moves. It includes a first aid kit, space age blanket, food, water, matches etc.
This should be in every household and every dorm room in the country in case of any emergency, Zombie or otherwise.
This officially licensed survival kit is a must have for any Walking Dead fans. Unlike the kit above it claims to be a premium disaster preparedness kit for two, very good gift idea for a couple.
This means that two of you could survive for the first 72 hours with the supplies here, or alternatively one of you could survive for 6 days (I’m just putting it out there!).
Housed in a durable (and cool looking, if you want to go for post-apocalypse chic) military style bag the kit includes a first aid kit, food and water rations, flashlight, glow sticks and 2 space blankets.
