It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

This season, when shopping for your loved ones, consider gifts and stocking stuffers that put safety first.

The following list has 20 ideas to help you get started.

  1. Motion activated safety lights ($10-$20) – Battery-operated LED lights to illuminate your doorstep, driveway or backyard.
  2. Auto-light ($30-$50) – When you’re not home, use these lights to randomly turn on in order to simulate an occupied house.
  3. Two- or three-story fire escape ladder ($50-$150) – Usually holds up to 1,000 pounds in an emergency.
  4. Fire-safe security box ($50-$90) – Protects documents and other valuables from fire and water damage.
  5. Flameless candles ($10-$25) – Or sturdy candle holders to prevent accidents.
  6. Dryer safety alarm ($55-$70) – Provides audible and visual cues when lint builds up in the clothes dryer’s exhaust system and restricts airflow.
