…a survival kit that has beer in it?  Yes…and survival kit that has band-aids, kleenex, some aspirin and a sewing kit?  No.

Just buy pairs of black socks (the most forgotten item).

what would you put in it?  Men are fairly low maintenance. Mine showed up with A cooler of beer, water and chocolate bars.  I appreciated the chocolate bars when photos took a couple hours…

If anything, I’d just put socks, drinks, pins whatever in a basket and put it where they will be getting ready or waiting.  No need for individual bags.

Guys wouldn’t probably use it.

If you are really set on making them, I would include black socks, MENS hair gel, mini mens deoderant or body spray, and maybe a couple bottles of those little liquors.

Guys dont usually care about those cute details. My husband and his guys hung around all morning and watched TV. He supplied them with food, beer, and whiskey. I supplied the water 😉

i don’t think it’s really necessary. i made survival kits for my girls and i thought about putting something together for the guys too, but we decided that they wouldn’t really need anything. guys are pretty low maintenace. i think the only thing we gave them was some snacks to munch on so no one would be starving to death duirng pictures. but i left my husband in charge of the guys, so i don’t know if he even did that, lol

The only survival kit is beer! So make them a beer cake!! buy canned beer and stack them up to look like a cake. It will at least make for a cute picture…..
