Spring is almost in the air now and that means spring and summer weddings are right around the corner. On coming up in my life is for my brother who is getting married next week. This past weekend was the bachelorette party which I wasn’t able to attend but wanted to send a gift. I know a lot of people think of bachelorette parties are all about dirty gifts but that’s just not my thing. I wanted it to be something that celebrates and pokes fun at the highs and lows of marriage. That’s how I came up with the idea for a marriage survival basket.
For my marriage survival basket I wanted it to include fun, useful and silly items. Things that would make the bride laugh when she read the card and what each item was for. I did also want them to be truly useful though because anyone who’s married knows there are definitely both good times and bad.
Marriage Survival Basket
Champagne, sparkling wine, Prosecco or sparkling cider
Love note cards
A store gift card
Edible body paint
Silly sex book
Chocolate… lots and lots of chocolate
A nice basket
Printed note card (You can print out the one I made or create your own but definitely use some cute card stock paper to print it on.)
A bow or ribbon
Tissue paper or newspaper
Marriage Survival Basket Assembly Instructions
Place your items into your basket and place them in an aesthetically pleasing way. Use the tissue paper or newspaper to raise, lower and protect items from banging. Attach the printed note card and then use the cellophane wrap to wrap up the basket. Close the top of the cellophane wrap by wrapping a bow or ribbon around the bunched up cellophane at the top.
If you use the same items and want to print of the note card I used then just click on the picture to download and print the file. Be sure to use some pretty paper to print it out on to make it pop!
