Emergency preparedness gift guide

Recent events no doubt have made us keenly aware of the importance of being prepared. In the wake of superstorm Sandy, many of us were left without power or heat, and some tragically without homes. So this year, if you really love someone, you might consider giving him or her the gift of warmth, light or safety. They'll thank you now, and likely bless you later. (Items that may be sold out now because of recent high demand are either expected to be restocked or can be ordered for receipt in time for the holidays.) -- Jessica Damiano
