Gather a selection of non hybrid seeds from your collection. Label them, best by hand, and put in a basket.
This gift allows your prepper to share in the bounty of your garden and to help spread the wealth of heritage seeds.
Add a few garden tools to bulk it up!

A gift basket can be a candy tin, a Mason jar, a shoe box, a recycled jewelry gift box. a coffee cup, a toilet paper roll, or even a rolled up magazine. Roll up a catalog from a preppers store like Major Surplus or Emergency Essentials and stuff it with the gift item (seeds, ammo, supplies). If you have the extra, add a gift certificate.
