Gift Ideas for Police Officers

Gift Ideas for Police Officers

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 šŸ˜‰

bulletproof clipboard

Bulletproof Clipboard

Different levels and sizes available. All clipboards have a 25-year warranty against breakage or clip damage.

individual first aid kit

Individual First Aid Kit

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).

sandstorm custom rifle slings

Rifle Sling

Single point and 2-point custom rifle slings made from paracord. To customize you can select length, weaves, colors, and connection type.Ā Sandstorm Custom Rifle Slings offers a 10% discount for military/LEO/fire/EMS!

grinds coffee pouches

Grinds Coffee Pouches

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.

tactial gloves

Tactical GlovesĀ 

These tactical gloves are ideal for shooting, conducting searches and everyday duty use. Note they are not needle proof or cut-resistant.

luggable loo

Luggable Loo

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.”

I hope you find this gift guide for police officers helpful.

Happy Holidays! Until next post…xoxo Becca

Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Picks

Hearth & Hand with Magnolia

Can you believe it is finally here?!Ā Hearth & Handā„¢ with Magnolia is now available at Target. Back in September I saw the announcement on Magnolia Market’s facebook page and of course marked my calendar! On Sunday the hubs and are were traveling back from Wynne, Arkansas and luckily I had cell phone service to scroll through the collection.

There is something about Joanna’s style that is clean and warm and inviting and charming. It’s hard to put it into words, but her decor brings a sense of cozy and understated sophistication that I love. The “farmhouse” style is not usually what I am drawn to in home decor, but her pieces in the Hearth & Hand collection at Target are all those adjectives listed.

Here are my favorites from the collaboration:

What are everyone’s plans for the weekend? It was pretty chilly this week and made me want to curl up on the couch with my husband and watch movies. Between you and me, we may just do that šŸ™‚
Don’t forget to check back next Friday for another college student focused post, but this time it is being written by Taylor. She’s my first guest writer and we’re both really excited for the collaboration.
Until next post…xoxo Becca
