72 Hour Starter Kit Gift


With it being wedding season, I wanted to think of a cute bridal shower gift. We usually give money at the receptions, and a lot of brides don't always include small, low priced gifts on their registry. So I came up with these 72 Hour Starter kits. My sister in law is getting married soon. The only things on her registry were furniture and I figured almost everyone else would be getting her lingerie. I would have loved to have one of these when we first got married because it's one of those things that can slip our minds but is still so important to have. I bought a bunch of travel sized toiletries, a sewing kit, some bandages, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and got a 72 hour checklist (shrunk it down and laminated it) and placed them all in a decorated cookie tin. Voila a 72 Hour Starter Kit!

  1. i love it. I wanted something similar but for when I had my baby. I was stuck in hospital with little to do and once I got home I couldnt go out for a few days. Would have been nice to have had something like this, perhaps a magazine, some hot chocolate, neurophen for the pain, etc.

  2. @CassidyAnne That's a fantastic idea! I think I'll put something like that for a "just had a baby survival kit"!
