Zombiepocalypse Easter basket full of prepping supplies (and candy!) #Entertaining#candy#easter#emergency kits#gifts#zombies April 5 2012 | Guest post by Katrina Do you know how fun it is to prepare for the end of the world, zombie-style? It's my new favorite hobby! The best part is I never run out of gift ideas anymore (my husband is one of those impossible-to-buy-for guys). I'll use any holiday as an excuse to add to our collection. It seems like everybody is preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse, and my husband is no exception. When he started making his "survival kit" last year, I made fun of him for days! As his pack of supplies steadily grew, I stopped busting his ass and started offering suggestions. Even the kids are into it! So, I decided to put together a fun Easter basket for my zombie-loving husband. A lot of the geeky tools came from ThinkGeek.com. This Easter basket has a mixture. It has plenty of novelty items, such as the zombie snacks, but also plenty of useful items, such as the Pocket Chainsaw, water packets with a five-year shelf life, and a SurvivalStraps Survival Bracelet. I used a silver survival blanket for the "grass," and added a chocolate zombie bunny to make it more Easter-ish. Brainstorm: A zombiepocalypse basket would also be good for… Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

Last Easter my whole family watched Zombieland twice followed with Shaun of the Dead. Ah, warm family moments… Reply GREAT birthday gift ideas for my husband! LOVE IT! Reply I know exactly what I am sending to my friend for her birthday! Fantastic gift!! I love it! Reply awh I wish you had posted this earlier so I would have had time to buy a zombie easter bunny for my husband! 3 agree Reply heh, awesome. Reply yes. more preppers in the world = i'm less likely to be called crazy. keep posts like this comin'! 😀 1 agrees Reply If you've got prepping junk to contribute, I'd also LOVE more! We are preppers, but I just haven't had a ton to say on the matter. Other than, "Prep!" Reply At work, yelled out loud "OH MY GOD WANT!" Slightly embarrassed, but seriously? Ohmygodwant. Reply I'm smelling a family tradition in the making. Totally sacrilegious, and I love it. Reply Ugh I wish I had more time so I could do this. We call it Zombie Jesus day instead of Easter (sorry to the religious, but he rose from the grave!! Zombie! The original!) so this would have been perfect for my fiancé!! 1 agrees Reply Awesome idea, my significant other just got into the whole survivalist thing and he'd LOVE an Easter basket like this! I'll probably throw in "The Prepper's Pocket Guide" and the movie "Zombieland" just for fun 🙂 More prepping posts would be great! 1 agrees Reply where oh where did you find a zombie bunny? I don't think I could even eat something like that (It might start the apocolyspe) Reply Zombie chocolate bunnies are on sale at Think Geek right now!: 1 agrees Reply This is awesome. Totally buying an undead bunny for my hubby. =) Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
