We know that a hens night is not quite the same as being shipped off to a deserted island, so ‘Survival Kit’ might sound a bit dramatic, but trust us, it will come in handy or at the very least makes a nice little keepsake for you and your guests! This is a fun opportunity for you to get creative and add what you think would be most relevant to you and your gals, pack up the essentials in a little pouch (you can even personalise these with names if you want to get really fancy!) and have a little fun in the process. Here is the breakdown of what we would include:
A big night out dancing the night away (or following scavenger hunt clues) can be rough on your feet, especially if you are brave enough to opt for heels. Band-Aids are integral to ensure you can handle any blisters, bumps or scrapes that might come your way, it’s always better safe than sorry!
- Facial Spray
This one might sound strange, but there is nothing better or more refreshing than giving yourself a little spritz to freshen up throughout the night! This will also keep your skin hydrated and looking glowy to keep you looking your best for all the photos you and the gals will take.
Everyone loves a night out, but often you don’t always love the feeling of the morning after, having some painkillers on hand is always a good idea!
- Something Sweet
Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? Adding some lollies or a little chocolate to your survival kit is not only a delicious surprise, but also doubles as the perfect pick me up for when your energy is starting to flag and you’re feeling a little sleepy, plus as previously stated, sweet treats are delicious, and we all deserve one!
Important for any happy tears that may be shed when reminiscing on your friendship with all your besties, but also perfect for any spills that you may encounter throughout the night!
- Mints or chewing gum
Having some mints or chewing gum on hand means you can eat that garlic bread at dinner or stop for a late-night kebab (add extra garlic sauce because it is delicious) without being conscious of how your breath will smell and keep you feeling fresh and ready for anything!
This list covers the absolute basics, and the best part is you have total freedom to craft your own survival hens party survival kit! Some honourable mentions include:
- Hens party accessories such as a party sash
- Tiny bottles of alcohol/spirits
- A shot glass
- Lip balm
- Hand sanitiser
But the world is your oyster, add as much or as little to your survival kit as you like! The main thing is it gives you and your gal pals a bit of a giggle, acts as a lovely keepsake and party favour, and ensures you are all prepared for an amazing night to celebrate a very special bride to be.
