You’ve heard of winter survival kits and glovebox prepper kits, but here are some useful, funny, and unconventional survival kits that are great to keep on hand (or give as a gift.) Let’s hope you never have to use any of them, but they certainly don’t hurt to keep around.
Vacation Emergency Supplies
Face it, vacation is one of the worst times to get sick. If you don’t have the right meds or supplies on hand, you’ll be miserable for the rest of the day, or even week. From a pair of tweezers for that stray splinter to saline spray, here’s everything you need to make sure you’re not loathing your next getaway.
Shotgun and Bleeding Wound Kit
Let’s hope that you never have to deal with a shotgun injury, but if you’re a hunter or putting yourself in harm’s way where you could potentially get seriously injured, you need a way to control the blood flow. Otherwise, you risk bleeding out before the paramedics can get there. This link gives you a highly detailed list of everything you need to keep on hand.
Emergency Farming Kit
If the apocalypse comes and you have to grow your own food, you could…but only if you had the seeds to do it. This emergency seed kit has 20 different varieties of non-GMO vegetables so that you’ll be farming your own garden in no time.
Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit
This kit won’t get you very far, because face it, either the zombies are going to die, or you are. It’s best that you’re the winner, so make the most of what you have. Your Zombie Apocalypse Kit needs to contain three essential elements: a shotgun, something to hack zombies with, and a riot shield. As this site suggests, zombies “can only be stopped by removing the head or destroying the brain.”
African Safari Bush Survival Kit
You never know when you’re going to find yourself getting lost on an African safari. Take a wrong turn, and the next thing you know the only place to turn for directions is a wild elephant. Fortunately, you’ll probably be found before you die of starvation, but you do need to keep some pain relievers, nausea and diarrhea medicine, and dressings for flesh wounds.

Tornado Survival Kit
A twister can strike when you least expect it, with little time to seek shelter, much less gather what you need in just a few seconds. Keep a tornado survival kit handy under your stairs, in the basement, or wherever your safe place is, so that it’s ready when you need it! The #1 thing you need on your list is enough water for 72 hours. Get a comprehensive list here:
Dollar Store Prepper Emergency Kit
You don’t have to spend $100 or $200 on putting together a basic prepper kit. If you’re strapped for cash, take on the challenge of completing your go bag at the dollar store. Believe us, it can actually be done! Grab some bandanas, pain reliever, bottled water, twine, glow sticks, and…well, your mind is the limit. Get a few more ideas here:
Pill Bottle Survival Kit
Is it possible to cram everything you need for an emergency into one prescription pill bottle? Almost! Fold things up tight enough, and you can fit cash, floss, candles and more in one little container.
