Emergency Kit

I plan on making some emergency kits for family/friends for the holidays. What are some cheap and useful things I should include? I plan on going to the dollar store and "five and under" store to get some flash lights, batteries, fuses, water, ect. I also want to make some easy to follow instructions for changing a tire, replacing a fuse, maybe even a 'what does that noise probably mean' section.

What do you guys think?

+1 better than an Ekit.

But I will say one thing. That is a very thoughtful/original holiday gift.

It's going to be more of a stocking stuffer/side present type of thing. My girlfriend got a set of DLS speakers and 2 amps installed in her 328 so I wouldn't say I'm being cheap

I had road flares in my last car. Those things are fun. But seriously, I still say go for AAA. If they dont know how to do that stuff they probably wont do it in an emergency either.

I bought a bunch of Spotlight L.E.D. flashlights for gifts. They work really well, are bright and are always charged and ready to be used.
