Before Christmas, two years ago, I gave my pragmatic, don’t-bother-me friend a list of dry and dehydrated foods to choose from for her holiday gift from me. “They’ll last on your basement shelves many years,” I smiled, “but if you need them next year you’ll be happy you have them.” She chose pinto beans, flour, rice and oats. We stacked six #10 cans on the top shelf in her basement pantry. She stepped back and surprised me with a sincere, “They look nice up there.”

Gifts that are PREPAREDNESS-ORIENTED are a wonderful consideration for holidays, birthdays, even weddings. Here are some examples
