Self-Defense Holiday Gift Suggestions

Self-Defense Holiday Gift Suggestions

With less than 20 shopping days until Christmas, this is our third in a series of articles about suggestions for holiday gifts. This one is about self-defense product suggestions. And perhaps we saved the best till last.

Self-defense products are nonlethal in nature, very inexpensive and on average close to 90% effective. Because most of them are very small, they make fabulous stocking stuffers.

Last year we gave you these Self-Defense Gift Ideas For Christmas that included products under $50, in the $50-$100 price range and then a product suggestion for over $100.

This year we thought we do it a little bit differently and give you suggestions based on popularity as determined by our customers.


One of our most popular products is this powerful Fox Labs Pepper Spray that sells for $15.95. It is a 2 ounce can and contains enough spray for 18 half-second bursts up to as much as 20 feet away. It is the same kind of pepper spray used by law enforcement, security and military agencies worldwide. It has a spring loaded flip top safety cap to prevent accidental discharge. It has a three year shelf life with the date of manufacturer stamped on the bottom of the container.

Our next recommendation is this 6,000,000 volt S.M.A.C.K. Keychain Stun Gun that sells for $23.95 and would also make a great stocking stuffer because it is so small at 5.375″ x 1.75″ x 3.5″ and weighs just 1/3 of a pound or about 5 ounces. One of the cool features about this stun gun is that was the first one to have a keychain attachment. It is so durable that it has a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. It is completely rechargeable with a built-in slide out plug that allows easy charging directly into a wall outlet.

Then we recommend this 120 db loud Keychain Panic Alarm w/Flashlight that sells for only $8.95. It is one of the loudest personal panic alarms that you can get. It has a recessed alarm button so you won’t accidentally set it off. It is only 2 ½ inches long and also includes a bright built-in flashlight with a key ring. It comes with a replaceable 12 volt battery. Panic alarms can protect you in two ways. First, by scaring away potential assailants. Secondly, they can alert people in the area that you are in distress. They are a very effective and inexpensive self-defense tool.

And our last recommendation is this extremely popular Expandable 21 Inch Steel Baton that sells for $18.95. It weighs just over 1 pound and is made with high quality black solid steel construction. It expands from 8″ when retracted to 21″ with the flick of a wrist. It comes with a heavy-duty nylon holster with belt loop. Our in-house tests and consumer reviews shows that these Taiwanese manufactured batons are far superior to those of similar Chinese manufacturer.
