If you were stranded on an island and had to choose just 6 of your very favorite ShareASale Merchant products (no matter how practical or impractical), what would you choose? We asked Stephanie, Product Marketing Manager, what would be on her survival short-list and here is what she said:
1. Never ending arts and crafts courtesy of Buddha Board.
Merchant ID: 27816 – 12% commission – Join Program
Island life is all about living as a minimalist and having a good time. The Buddha Board is a great activity for someone stranded because you can paint masterpieces using only water but as the strokes dry they disappear and you are once again met with a clean slate. No paper waste – endless fun!
2. Insect Repellent by Meow Meow Tweet.
Merchant ID: 63972 – 10.00% Per Sale – 90 Days – Join Program
I am imagining this desert island to be tropical, humid and damp – which means perfect conditions for pesky insects and a haven for mosquitos. This repellent is as effective as the strongest chemical insecticide but toxin-free and safe for all people, kids and even pets. All of Meow Meow Tweet’s products are made with organic, unrefined plant oils and wild-crafted botanicals so I could probably re-create the recipe while stranded if I were to run out!
3. Pug T-Shirt by BuyCoolShirts.com
Merchant ID: 10905 – 15.00% Per Sale – 30 Days – Join Program
Not only would this be worn in honor of my dog, whom I would surely be missing, but this giant (and terrifying) pug mug would help fend off any surprise predators.
4. Hemp Seeds & Vegan Protein Powder by Manitoba Harvest
Merchant ID: 47605 – 10% sale commission – $90-$110 AOV – Join Program
Scavenging for food will be especially challenging for me as a vegetarian. To keep up my protein intake I would bring as many Manitoba Harvest hemp products as possible. Hemp fits in perfectly with my minimalist island mantra because it is versatile and efficient – you can use nearly every part of the Hemp plant! Hemp seeds have the highest amount of essential fatty acids of any plant and they contain all the essential amino acids needed to sustain a healthy life.
5. Netted Tent by Wayfair.com

Again, the bugs. This tent also doubles as protection against the sun!
6. Hammock by Serenity Health
Merchant ID: 15199 – 10% sale commission – 15 day cookie – Join Program
I imagine that would spend most of my time catching up on all the sleep I missed before being stranded. A comfortable and weather-resistant hammock (that hopefully fits inside my mosquito net tent) would be at the top of my list.
