Man Cave Hibernation Survival Kit - Gift Idea

This is one of many gifts that I made for Christmas that I could not post until after Christmas. The only pictures I got of the survival kit were on Christmas morning so hopefully you can see each item well enough. I was laughing while taking some so I apologize for the blurry ones.
Here is what I put in the man cave hibernation survival kit:


1) an oh so cozy blanket.



2)  four cozy pillows - I bought a fleece blanket from the $store and made four pillow slipcovers to cover existing pillows I had. Click HERE for directions on how to cover a pillow with an envelope slip cover. I cut out letters that were all different sizes (free hand) out of scrap fleece and hand sewed the letters on the pillow. I only put words on two pillows because it was very time consuming.


3) I painted a "man cave" sign. I got my daughter to do a couple cave man drawings on it.


4) I bought a bucket and filled it up with grub - pop, nuts, chocolate, etc. I called it the grub tub.


5) Here's my blurry picture. It shows a couple things that were in the grub tub. I bought a couple of wooden coasters at the $ store and painted "man cave" on them. 

For all the labels I used the font "Elise". I inked the edges with two different colors of brown. The free hand letters on the pillow were inspired by the font "Elise" You can download the font by clicking
