This site offers some really interesting and USEFUL items you can give to the ones you love this holiday season. I really liked these:
The Titanium Escape Ring adds another tool to the operator’s E&E options for escaping captivity. It’s a simple but elegant-looking ring made of titanium, cut from solid barstock and polished to a mirror finish. But unlike all other rings, this one contains a saw and handcuff shim pick combination tool which is completely hidden from view when worn. Located on a finger, its always in the exact area needed to quickly access and deploy, even when handcuffed. The shim can be used to open single-locked handcuffs, while the saw can cut zip-ties, disposable handcuffs, duct tape, rope, and other non-metallic materials. This stainless steel tool is 2″ x 1/8″ x 1/64″, and its unusual flexibility allows it to curve around and be seated in the ring’s interior. The Micro Escape Tool is a replacement tool for this item. Available in five ring sizes: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (you may need to order one size larger than your normal ring size). Made in USA.

Get everything your Kelly Kettle needs. Coupons do not apply to this item. Kelly’s “mini” version of our popular Volcano Kettle. Compact & lightweight boiling approx. 19 oz. of water within a matter of minutes. Simply refill and reboil on the same fire if more water is needed. Comes complete with the kettle, small cookset and pot support. The kettle only weighs 1.7lbs.
This 19 oz. Kettle, cook set and Pot Support all fit neatly together into their own drawstring carrying bag which can be put into or carried hanging from a Rucksack or Backpack.
As there is no need to carry fuel, this kit will keep your pack light and save you money at the same time – never worry about running out of fuel again! Using any naturally occuring solid fuel (sticks, pine cones, dry camel dung! etc.) this unit will operate perfectly well, even in the most extreme weather conditions or terrain. The kettle brings 19 oz, 2+ cups of water to a rolling boil (purifying the water) within a matter of minutes while you reheat or cook food at the same time using the cook set on the Pot-Support over the chimney of the kettle. Hence, a very small amount of fuel will both boil your water and cook your meal at the same time!

Midland XT511 GMRS Two-Way Emergency Crank Radio
22-Channel GMRS/FRS Radio
The Midland XT511 radio provides you with seven GMRS/FRS, seven FRS (Family Radio Service), and seven GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) channels, for a total of 22 UHF channels. Additionally, the XT511 comes with 121 privacy codes to lessen interference or eavesdropping, which in effect gives you 3144 channel options.
Five separate call alerts identify incoming calls from your group, and an e-VOX function with three selectable sensitivity levels offers voice-activated, hands-free operation. This radio also features a channel scan, for locating active channels, along with a keypad lock so you don’t accidentally change your settings.
While communicating, you can rest assured you’ll be heard with features like auto squelch, which removes annoying background noise. You can also make sure you’re hitting keys with keystroke tones, and use the keypad lock feature to “lock in” your preferred settings.
NOAA Weather Alert Radio
The XT511 offers NOAA Weather Alert Radio to automatically alert you to any severe weather/hazard information near your area, 24/7. Additionally, a Dual Watch feature lets you monitor two channels at once, so you can keep abreast of any developements in an emergency situation while maintaining communication.
Perfect for Power Outages/Mobile Use
The XT511 offers several powering options. You can power with four standard AA batteries, or use the rechargeable battery pack. An AC adapter for wall-charging and a DC adapter for charging in your vehicle’s “cigarette lighter” outlet are both provided.
Better yet, a Dynamo crank is provided, for recharging its batteries without access to electricity. A USB port lets you charge your cell phone directly from the radio using crank power (or of course, outlet power when available).
Imagine you are trying to make the best of a bad situation and your 15 year old daughter or wife suddenly starts her menses! Things just went from bad to horribly worse if you are not prepared! Now, the average woman will use approximately 4 to 6 tampons a day or pads, imagine storing all of those for 1, 2, 3 or more women! There is a solution and most women don’t like it, but it works, and is actually more healthy than tampons. I highly recommend you get the DIVA CUP!
