Happy Campers Marriage Survival Kit - Take Two

 Hello! Welcome to my blog! My sister got married last summer. What do you give someone who has everything? A creative gift of course! Since survival kits are my thing - my sister was definitely getting one. She already got a wedding day survival kit for her bridal shower. When giving marriage survival kits I try to think of what the couple is interested in. I also consider what season of the year we are in.  My brother in law was big time into camping and my sister, well, not so much. I thought a happy camper marriage survival kit was perfect! I had already made a Happy Camper marriage survival kit for an anniversary present (CLICK HERE TO SEE IT) but I wanted to update the graphics and also I purchased a few different things as well. I borrowed ideas from other survival kits I have made as well (CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL MY SURVIVAL KITS).
Here is a list of what ended up in this one:

I love shopping at Winners as I can find nice unique stuff there. I lucked out to find adventure/travel type merchandise like the water bottle and flashlight. I purchased a really nice blanket there as well.
I put it all in a bag that I found at Hobby Lobby when I went on a trip to the States.  

The tags can be found HERE. They are free to download for personal use. I like to put quotes with the tags so if you are into the quotes, cut them out and paste them to the back of the corresponding graphic. 

I hope this gives you some ideas for your next creative gift! If you make one I would love to hear if you came up with any different sayings.

Happy creating!!

Wedding Day Survival Kit - Wedding Shower Gift Idea

Welcome to my blog! My sister got married last year and I made her a wedding day survival kit. Survival kits are my thing. I love unique and creative gifts and if you have been to my blog before, you have seen a lot of survival kits. Check out my other wedding day survival kit HERE - it is boring but pretty.

My sister had a natural theme for her wedding so I wanted to  go with that theme. First thing I needed to do was find a bag I liked to fit some stuff and the kit took off from there. I found this bag in the cosmetic bag section at Winners.

Winners also had some cute supplies in their cosmetics and travel section. I found the lip balm, a travel sewing kit, and lotion there. 
Here is a list of the contents along with the saying I put with the items. I wanted some kind of snack - I chose a Clif bar because my brother-in-law's name is Cliff, so this was very handy. I had a different saying on the tag - for a personalized touch (You raised the bar when you found Cliff! Feed your adventure!)

My sister loved the gift and it came in handy at the wedding. The tags are free for personal use. For the tags go HERE.
Stay tuned for the wedding gift I made her - Happy Campers Marriage Survival Kit!
Thanks for stopping by!
