University Student Survival Kit Gift

This is the ultimate gift for any university student! I made up a “university survival kit” for a friend who’s just finished school and going off to varsity. I tried remembering all the little things that I needed at some stage in my broke but very happy days of being a student. Basically I just bought a bunch of random stuff, threw it in a big mason jar and squeezed in some things I already had around the house. She absolutely loved it!

Here’s a list of all the items I squished in:

  • Cotton wool roll
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Tweezers
  • Staples
  • McNab’s energy tablets
  • Pain pills
  • All purpose glue
  • Sewing kit
  • Small Scissors
  • Hair bands
  • Decorative thumbnails
  • Ear buds
  • Tissues
  • Paper clips
  • Red lipstick and nail polish (which I believe every lady should have)
  • Batteries
  • Safety pins
  • Shower cap
  • Hair pins
  • Lighter
  • Throat lozenges
  • Compressed cloths
  • Cappuccino and sugar sachets
  • Student card holder
  • Rubber bands
  • Sticky notes

This was a lot of fun to make. Just ensure that what you put in won’t be too difficult to get out. This could also be great to give to your bridesmaids as a “wedding  day survival kit” with all the necessities one might need. Try coming up with other cool goodies to put in the jar and have fun!
