Survival kit gifts are a new twist on an old idea. When most people think of survival they think of a potentially serious situation in which one’s health or life is in jeopardy. But what about just one’s sanity? Life can happen at a fairly alarming rate and survival kit gifts are the perfect way of adapting to whatever life throws at you. Some are serious and some are funny, but all of them will help to remind you that life is what you make of it.
Take for instance the survival kit gifts for a retail worker. The kit includes a fireball, for days when you‘re burned out, a pen, for the ones that keep disappearing, smiley face sticker to remind you to keep smiling, marbles to replace the ones you’ve lost, Sweet Tarts to remind you that customers can be a little of both and a rubber band to help you hold things together.
Another neat survival kit gift is an anti-depression survival kit. The kit includes an eraser to make your troubles disappear, a penny so you never have to be flat broke, a rubber band to stretch yourself beyond your limits, a string to tie everything together, and a Hershey’s Hug and Kiss to remind you that you’re still loved.
Many survival kit gifts are fashioned around a person’s station or profession. Hence, there are survival kit gifts for firemen, college freshman, newlyweds, CPA’s, dentists, and hunters just to name a random few. This makes for the ability to customize to anyone’s tastes or needs. To make your own survival kit gift there are a couple of main things to consider. First, try to make it allegorical/anecdotal. This will remind the recipient of why they received this particular gift and provide a quick source of encouragement.
Survival kits gifts do not have to be extravagant. A price tag of under $20 should more than suffice to put together a nice gift kit. Remember that with these it truly is the thought that counts, so flex your creative muscle and put together survival kit gift for your family, coworkers, or friends. You might even suggest survival kit gifts in place of a traditional secret Santa or white elephant party. Whatever the occasion, a creative survival kit gift is sure to put a smile on the face of someone you care about.
