Bride, Groom, Bridesmaid or Best Man Wedding Day Emergency Survival kits- Funny & Useful Gift Basket Ideas!

Updated on January 7, 2013

Looking for that perfect gift for the bride and groom, and wedding party members?

Hopefully your wedding, or the bride-to-be's wedding, will go off without a hitch...usually, they do, but from time to time, problems pop up when you least expect it...a missing button, a spot on someone's dress or suit, hair gets windblown, make up smeared, or one of many other glitches.

What are in these survival kits?

Giving out a wedding day "emergency" or "survival" kit to the bride, groom, bridesmaids, or even the best man might be a way to head off some of the problems before they become a catastrophe on that special day, when nerves are already stretched to the limit!

For the women, each kit usually contains items guaranteed to help in some way, whether its sewing on a popped off button or mending a torn seam, or using wipes or stain removal liquid to clean off a spot on clothes, even something for a headache or heartburn--even to remove nail polish or fix hair styles--there are many different items in each of these kits that are sure to come in handy in one way or another.

The guys aren't forgotten, either!

The groom's survival kit comes with some of the same items as the women's, but also some things that are geared for the man...such as a razor and shaving cream, extra pair of black socks, styptic pencil, etc. Even a stress ball, which would probably make him smile, just by seeing it in the kit!

Admittedly, the survivor kit for the best man is more of a gag gift, but you never know when the items included just MIGHT come in handy--I mean, what man couldn't use a set of emergency cufflinks? Or a deodorant wipe? And breath freshener is never a bad item to have around, especially in social situations like this!

Whoever gets one of these is sure to get a kick out of it--give them out at bridal showers, bachelorette parties, or bachelor parties, too--the guys are definitely going to enjoy ribbing each other about them, I'm sure. But you just never know when one item in these survival kits will save the day, so why take any chances?
