We may not be in the jungle or stuck at sea, but who says that surviving a hen weekend isn’t just as difficult as both those things? OKAY, maybe I’m exaggerating a little, but we have all had one of those Sunday mornings were we’re just unsure as to whether we’re going to survive the dreaded Saturday night hangover…haven’t we?! Well, imagine this with over 10 rowdy hens at breakfast.
It goes without saying that planning the perfect hen party can be stressful at times. You’ve got to find a suitable location, activities, accommodation, think about a gift for the hen, collecting deposits, transport and of course making sure everyone knows where to be and when.
Now it’s a couple of weeks before the weekend you’ve been meticulously planning for months, so why not start the super fun part of planning to get you excited and relieve the stress.
Personalised homemade hen party survival kits are a great spin on the traditional party favour and are great fun for both you, and the other hens, providing lots of giggles throughout the weekend. If you’re a crafty cookie personalise one of these hen do survival kit muslin bags, add a name to the bag or make cute little badges so the girls can see whose who saving the awkward intros.
All the girls are bound to love your personalised hen party survival kit and it’ll make the weekend extra special with loads of laughs, and lots of games!
Energy Drink – everyone needs hydrating after a heavy night on the tiles, so ply the girls with Lucozade and Red Bull to make sure they’re super fresh for a morning of activities – and obviously don’t forget the good old H20!
Painkillers – a simple paracetamol can cure that thick hungover head the morning after, the hens will be forever thankful (and fresh at breakfast!)
Hair Grips – these little beauties can solve most female problems (we like to think!) so when you have a hair mishap or a broken dress, hair grips will be your life saver.
Mints – packs of chewing gum or Tic Tacs are a handy and compact little way to stay minty fresh throughout the whole weekend.
Mini Bottles – what gets the party started better than a few bubbles to kick-start the giggles – and hiccups in most cases! Plus the girls will be really thirsty from all that fun you’ll be having.
Disposable Camera – let’s create memories the retro way by disposable cameras in the party bags. This will get the girls snapping and means that no-one can be distracted by texts and calls whilst taking selfies on their mobiles. Why not make the hen a colourful scrapbook with all the developed photos when the weekend is over – if you’re feeling crafty that is!
Sweeties – everyone is going to need that sugar rush at some point during the action packed hen-do, so give the girls what they need…after all kids and grown-ups love it so. You could also throw in mini packs of love hearts, this will get everyone chatting whilst they exchange lovely messages.
Novelty Sunglasses – a really cute idea is to include novelty sunnies for everyone to wear the next morning to hide those tired eyes, this could even be tied in with the overall hen party theme.
Glow Sticks – take it back to the 90’s and include some UV glow sticks, this will get everyone in the mood and make you stand out on your night out.
Props – these will be the ideal partnering for your disposable cameras and will make for fab pictures. Just think photo booth props, so moustaches on sticks, sunglasses and tiaras, use your imagination and STRIKE A POSE!
Shot Glasses – a hen party wouldn’t be a hen party without shots, so in your survival kits why not include personalised shot glasses to toast the bride-to-be…and the stripper!
Dare Cards – let the cheekiness begin and put a dare card in each of the bags at random. Get all the hens together and think up a few super-sassy dares for the bride-to be to complete every hour!
