DIY Altoids Tin Survival Kit. This is what I would want as a gift - the idiot proof version (esp fire making category). There are several versions of this kit at Field & Stream’s website and I like these ones so much better than the ones I’ve seen at Instructables (this is Field & Stream!). There are specific recommendations, links to where to buy the stuff etc… To save you time look at the first slide here and then skip to the last slide “Make Your Own: Three Steps to a Life-Saving Kit” here, then go through the slideshow of options. *A lightweight survival blanket is also a must. All the comments and this tutorial really made me think… must ask my brother who fishes in the wild all the time if he has something like this.
