Marriage Survival Kit

Tue Feb 01, 2011 11:11 am

Hey Ladies,

Im needing some help and ideas on what to contribute into a a friend's Marriage Survival Kit, I have a couple of ideas such as: a pack of toothpicks to pick out the good in yourself and others, a duck to remind you to let some things roll off your back, a mint to remind you that we are all worth a mint as long as we work together...but needing some more ideas.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Stickytape and paperclips (to repair what her husband "fixed")
Coffee (useful for get-togethers with the girls to complain about her husband)
Chilli powder (to keep things spicy)
A little plant (to remind her that love is alive, but you have to help it grow. And if she kills the plant, she really shouldn't get a pet)
Headache tablets (for the inevitable headache she'll experiences when her husband wants to get raunchy) :wink:
Eraser (to remind her that she can start every day with a clean slate)
Rubber Band (to remind her to always be flexible)

This are not my own ideas. I googled...hee hee

*Paper Clip - To help you hold it all together
*A razor - So your relationship will go smoothly
*Puzzle Piece - You are an important part of my life
*Mints - Because you're “mint to be”/worth a mint
(And so your 1st kiss as husband & wife will be great!)
*Crayons - To colour our future bright & sunny
*A candle - Because you are the light of my life
*Chewing gum - To help you stick together
*A smile - Because you make each other so happy
*Matches - You are a perfect match
*Playing card - You are perfectly suited
*Lolly heart - As you’ve always had each other's from the very start
*A watch/clock - Because it's about time you got married!
*Little shoes - you are sole mates and a perfect pair (little shoe erasers, keyrings, necklace)
*Key - You have the key to his/her heart
*Measuring cup/tape - Your love is beyond measure
*Rope with knot - You will be tying the knot
*Cool wipes - To keep cool, calm and collected
*Ear plugs - For blocking out the Bridezilla!
*Battery - To keep you charged all day
*Highlighter - You are the highlight of each other's life
*A smile - For helping you to practise your pose. NO silly faces in the wedding photos!
(or because you make each other so happy)
*Skittles - In case it rains, you can provide your own rainbow
*Pack of seeds - You helped each other grow into what you are today
*Confetti - Don't go to pieces!

I just made one of these for my groom-to-be (you can swap the wording of you/his/her/each other's, etc), and my bridal party (why the list is so long, items from each)
Also, if you can't get all the bits and pieces (clock/watch is a little expensive), I printed out some clipart.
