Hello all! I am writing this gift guide for police officers during the holiday season, but these gift ideas are practical year round. They would be good for a police academy graduation gift, for birthday, fathers/mothers day, or a holiday like Christmas. Or even as a surprise “just because” gift.
With the help of my LEO husband we put together this list of gift options. Some of which he owns, others he would like 😉
Different levels and sizes available. All clipboards have a 25-year warranty against breakage or clip damage.
You hope they never need to use it, but this compact individual first aid kid includes the necessary things needed to treat life threatening bleeding wounds (knife/stab wounds, gunshots, or other serious bleeding injuries including arterial bleeding).
Single point and 2-point custom rifle slings made from paracord. To customize you can select length, weaves, colors, and connection type. Sandstorm Custom Rifle Slings offers a 10% discount for military/LEO/fire/EMS!
For those long night shifts, Grinds Coffee Pouches are small pouches of flavored coffee. Grinds can be used as an alternative to tobacco. The hubs likes cinnamon roll.
These tactical gloves are ideal for shooting, conducting searches and everyday duty use. Note they are not needle proof or cut-resistant.
You think it’s funny until it is needed! Simple, portable toilet (great for camping too).
A TacPack is a box of tactical/survival/every day carry gear that gets delivered once a month. According to TacPack, the boxes contain useful & professional-grade gear, not “swag.”
Equipment Organizer Shelf by Ozark Custom Wood
How handy is this equipment organizer shelf?! It’s “made for LEOs by a LEO.” Tim from Ozark Custom Wood creates these beautiful shelves and ships anywhere in the continental US. Send him a Facebook message for more information!
I hope you find this gift guide for police officers helpful.
Happy Holidays! Until next post…xoxo Becca
The hubs and I have been together 10 years now and he has been part of the law enforcement community for 6. What no one tells you when your significant other says they want to be law enforcement is the sacrifice you will make too. People tell me all the time, “I don’t know how you do it” and I tell them it takes a special person to be a cop wife, but it takes an even more dedicated person to be a military wife. That I could not do! Major shout out to military wives. At least for me I will see the hubs every day or every few days.
If you are thinking long term with someone who wants to enter law enforcement or who is already in the profession just know it’s a commitment. I want to take a second to write this post to give you an idea of what to expect.
I hope this provides some insight on what it is like to be in a relationship with someone in law enforcement. I started writing this post weeks ago and have struggled to say the right things and get my message across clearly. I felt it was important to convey this to those who are considering a long term relationship with someone in law enforcement or wants to pursue a career in the field. It’s not for the faint of heart.
Until next post…xoxo Becca
