Christmas Gift IdeasSubmitted by webpence on Fri, 11/14/2008 - 16:48
It's that time of year again. I'm looking for good Christmas gift ideas to give to my family and friends. Some of you may have seen the Fox News story where Gerald Celente predicts that we will be giving each other food for Christmas by 2012 and that this would be the last year of the "retail Christmas."
I was inspired to post this question after reading through the survival food thread. I'm sick of giving and getting petroleum based crap (plastic) made in China baubles and trinkets. Instead, I want to give the people I care about stuff that can help them through the financial crisis.
An idea that came to mind last night was that I had ordered the 12000 seed pack from survivalistseeds.com. I thought of repackaging them into smaller packets (say 500 total) and giving those to my loved ones, complete with instructions on growing.
Anyone else have any ideas along these lines? I am trying to think of stuff to give these people with the caveat of trying not to seem like a paranoid, end of the world type person.
So, I guess the question is what other kinds of gift ideas are there that are maybe fun yet practical.
