DIY: Bachelorette Party Survival Kit

What are survival kits? Survival kits for bachelorette parties are more or less goodie bags for the guests filled with the necessities a gal might need on her night out.

This DIY survival bag was filled with items like

  1. Lip smackers
  2. Advil, individually packaged and sewn between two sheets of Martha Stewart velum
  3. Tic Tacs
  4. Candy Necklaces
  5. Condom, sewn between two sheets of Martha Stewart velum

She put the kit in little Chinese takeout boxes. What a cute idea!

Of course other items to put in a survival kit will vary. We suggest:

  • Breath mints
  • Gum
  • Condoms (if the girls are like that)
  • Lip gloss
  • Aspirin, Tylenol, other OTC meds (for the next day)
  • Nail files
  • Stain removers (Shout wipes)
  • Charmin to go (toilet paper)
  • Mouthwash

Be sure to include vital information in the survival kit like:

  • Map and itinerary of the party's events i.e. dinner at 6 p.m. Buddakan, 10 p.m. drinks Blue Martini
  • Names and phone numbers of party hosts and designated drivers
  • Name and phone number of the hotel you're staying at

Don't feel like putting one together-try the cute ones at Classy Girl Gift Co. where the " Classy Girl" kit boasts Advil, Band-Aid Travel Pack, Bath Bomb by Elixir, Candy Necklace, Candy Ring, Charmin Tissue To Go, a DVD, Gel Eye Mask, Hair Ties, Handcuffs (plastic with key), Mirror Mints by Little i, Makeup Remover, Ms. Manicure Matchbook Emory Boards, Scope Mouthwash, AND Shout Stain Wipes all in a cute tote bag.
