25 Prepper Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Some people love Christmas movies, some love the fantastic meals with family and friends, some love presents, but for my wife... she just LOVES stockings!  It must be all of the little gifts, well thought out, and stuffed together in an over-sized stocking.  I get it of course, and end up spending just as much time finding things for her stocking as I do her regular presents. If you find yourself looking for that last minute gift perfect for a prepper (think tactical gear) than look no further!  We have put in the work for you and compiled a list of the 25 best stocking stuffer ideas for the prepper, survivalist, or outdoorsman in your life!  Nearly all of these gifts are under $20, but a few are just a bit more (under $25) - they are too good to not include on this list!
