Even though I can't be with my daughters all of the time, one thing I can do is be prepared.
For more than 20 years, Emergency Essentials has been helping consumers do just that.
They have food storage, emergency kits, water filtration systems, survival kits, and more. With over 900 products, they are sure to have something to prepare you for life's little disasters.
So this Holiday Season give the gift of Preparedness with these simple gift ideas.
1 - For the new driver give a Roadwise Kit-Emergency Road Side Kit Combo. The basic kit is designed to withstand outside temperatures and is compact for easy storage. It also contains food, water, first aid items, and basic tools to help keep your child safe in case of a road emergency.
2 - Most people don't like to think about Natural Disasters. But fires, earthquakes, and floods do happen and families are not always together. For just $27 you can give your children their own emergency kit. The 3 Day Lite Emergency Kit will give your child access to food, warmth, water, light, and communication for up to 3 days in the event of an Emergency.
Emergency Essentials also sells 9-Meal MRE's which can help provide your family with a balanced diet when you don't have access to other rations.
3 - For your neighbors, consider buying the Red Emergency Candle Holiday Gift Combo (includes 12 candles, gift bags, and bows). At just $42 you can give 12 different neighbors 100 hours per light - that's about $3.50 per gift!
To Buy It - All of the above mentioned products and many more can be purchased online at beprepared.com
To Win It - Emergency Essentials is giving one of you their very own 3 Day Lite Emergency Kit
