I am super excited about this post because this was one of the DIYs that I was actually able to successfully do! One of my good friends is getting married in May and her bridal shower was earlier this month. I looked at her registry and it didn’t feel special enough to get her something off of that. Especially because Matthew and I are on a tight budget right now so we would only be able to get her one thing from her list.
“Here’s that single copper spatula you wanted! You’re welcome!”
I decided to get a little creative and went to Pinterest for some inspiration. That was when I found ideas for a “Bride Survival Kit”. Immediately I knew this was what I wanted to do. I could personalize it just for her. It’ll be filled with stuff that will come in handy and it will help relieve stress.
After looking at several lists on Pinterest, I compiled a list of my own and created a pamphlet in Canva:
I found all the products on this list at Meijer. Then I ordered a bag on Etsy that had her name and wedding date on it. Then I placed all of the items on this list into that bag. It was a very personal and budget friendly gift.
Possible other events you can do a gift like this for:
- After the Wedding (Wedding Night Survival Kit or Honeymoon Survival Kit)
- Baby Shower (New Mom Survival Kit)
If you want to do a similar pamphlet, please feel free to contact me via email or in the comments with any questions you may have!
