If you haven’t seen these guys yet, you owe yourself a look. Goal Zero makes a wide assortment of solar panels and storage batteries that are perfect for the prepper in your life.

3) Books

What prepper’s life is complete without a bookshelf full of good reads. This Christmas, stuff your prepper’s stocking
with a good book or two. Here are a couple that I’ve especially enjoyed this year:

The Pulse, by Scott Williams–This post-apocalyptic novel chronicles the journey of a father and daughter trying to reunite after a massive EMP (electromagnetic pulse).

Think “One Second After” meets “Dove.”

Emergency, by Neil Strauss–No matter how long you’ve been prepping or why you started, every prepper has a back story of events prompting and inspiring their actions. In Emergency, Neil Strauss shares his journey from tenderfoot to hard shell, colored with his edgy (but real) flavor.

Although this puppy came out in 2009, it still received plenty of attention from me this year (and is actually out on loan getting some more love from a friend at the moment!).

Prepper’s Home Defense, by Jim Cobb–The complete plan for operational security and physical defense. With over 20 years of experience as an investigator, security professional, survivalst and writer, Jim combines his loves in this book by teaching you how to create a secure perimeter, safe rooms, hidden caches and more.

The Eton has a solar panel along with the hand crank but they're pricey!
