Wedding Day Survival Kit - Wedding Shower Gift Idea

I LOVE survival kits. They are so much fun to make. This is the second wedding day survival kit I have made and I had a blast putting it all together. I didn't do anything funny as I decided that I wanted this to be a  kit that would make the bride feel all the more special and prepared on a very important day. This is what I did....
I purchased/collected/made the following goodies for the kit:
1. CASE - I bought a really cool cosmetic bag that was like a mini suitcase, but the size of a small lunch box. I found it at London Drugs.
2. deodorant
3. Tylenol
4. Mirror compact
5. wipes
6. water bottle
7. mints
8. lotion
9. tissue
10. munchie bag
11. clear nail polish
12. sewing kit
I totally forgot to buy a mini hair pic - but I meant to put that in the kit as well.

I got some pretty paper and covered some of the stuff to make it all go together. Next time I will cover all of the items to make them uniformed in the kit.

The tissue case - I covered a mini pack of tissues with paper, making creases using the tissue packet as my guide. I cut a half circle with a 2" circle punch and fed some tissue out of the packet.

The sewing kit - I love this little matchbox sewing kit. Click here for the tutorial on how to make it.

Place everything carefully in the case.....

Print out a tag - and tie a pretty bow - and you have a sweet Wedding Shower gift. 

Here is the tag I made. If you would like to use this one, right click - copy and paste into your favorite publishing program and resize to your liking. Once printed off  -  cut the top corners off to make a tag shape. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. When purchasing an Survival kit, there are many different considerations that should be made in order to obtain the best product for a person's unique needs. When evaluating the kits available on the market today, a person is sure to find that there are many different options. The choices are so immense that it may be especially difficult for a person to know which emergency kit is appropriate for them.

  10. In the late 1800s, it became more and more common to shower the bride with gifts (that is, to put bridal gifts in an open umbrella) and less common to send her into marriage with a large dowry. Whether it was a sign of the economy or new traditions melding with old, the bridal shower gifts can be anything from a common household item, to a sexy new baby doll nightgown. Generally speaking, the gifts are opened after the bridal shower games. But, with more couples living with one another before marriage, it is becoming harder to find that perfect present.

  16. This is such a good idea. If the mother of the bride is closer to you than the bride it could be for her to mother the bridal party. I was a Maid of Honor and never looked better...I was rocking it out on the dancefloor and suddenly smelled my armpits. I asked around and no one had deodorant just a baby wipe. I was so self conscious. Someone should always have a sewing kit, tissues, floss and deodorant!

  17. I recently found many useful information in this blog especially. Thanks for sharing. Discounted Gift Cards!
