Dec. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- This may be one of the quirkiest Christmas gifts but one that’ll bring some peace of mind, as there’s not always good will from all men. Personal alarms now come in all sorts of pastel-colored, handbag-friendly shapes, as well as sleek designs for men and there are even versions made especially for kids. It’s a caring present for those worried about the safety of their loved ones.

“We spend a fortune on security for our homes, our cars and our property but virtually nothing on protecting what’s most important to us: our family,” says Defensive Solutions, LLC, who set up the website www.defensivegear.com. “Sadly, there are countless stories every week of old and vulnerable people being attacked just yards from a crowded street and help. An alarm could make all the difference between safety and tragedy”.

Crime statistics for the States are truly shocking, with a violent crime occurring once every 25.3 seconds, a robbery every 1.4 minutes, a rape every 6.2 minutes and a murder every 35.6 minutes . And as winter draws in and the nights become longer, some neighborhoods get even more dangerous . What a personal alarm does is emit an ear-piercing sound that can be heard up to half a mile away, which can disorientate an attacker and attract the attention of passers-by. When shock or fear prevents a victim from calling out, an alarm is often the only option.

Alongside personal alarms, there’s an arsenal of other gadgets that can help a loved one escape unharmed if they get into difficulties. There’s something a bit James Bond about them: ordinary-looking objects to hide valuables in, key rings that spray pepper and ‘Tasers’, which stun potential attackers with a powerful electric shock.
Whether it’s giving that little bit of extra security for an elderly or vulnerable relative out late-night shopping or to a carefree teenager taking a winter holiday in a far-off land, the present of personal safety is one that both giver and receiver would be most pleased if it is never used. But having it there could make all the difference, if the worst were to happen.
