So I just put Mr. Boots on his plane to Austin, where he will be meeting up with 16 of his rowdiest buddies (whom I pretty much generally adore) for his epic bachelor weekend. Thankfully, we’ve been through enough craziness in our relationship that I’m not concerned. I jokingly said I wouldn’t bail him out. I’m sure they’re going to be a little wild and crazy, but as they’re pushing 30, they’ve already got most of the idiocy out of their systems and they just don’t recover like they used to. 🙂 Truthfully, I’m excited to have the house to myself, and plan on watching like a million episodes of “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” and having crackers, cheese and wine for dinner!
However, before he departed, he said something about wanting to put together a little kit for “his boys.” Not surprisingly, the DIY-monster lurking inside of Ms. Heels reared its ugly head and I commandeered his project. The result (IMHO) was a fun but cute, boy-oriented Bachelor Party Survival Kit. It was a relatively inexpensive project, and he agreed to tell them that the bags were his idea (mostly the booze, beef jerky and cigars) but that the cuteness was all me. Between Costco, Target and tiny bags from Michaels (40% off coupon in full effect) this was an affordable and fun little Tuesday night project. Am now thinking about doing similar day-of kits (including snacks) for the bridal party.
What do you all think? How did you feel about sending your groom off to his bachelor party? And does the “survival” kit make me an enabler of bad behavior as some brides have alleged?

I am thinking he is a very lucky man. Maybe you should put a bottle of water in there too. I am sure they will need it. I also recommend Pop Chips, those things are seriously addictive.
I was actually happy to see my man go, he has been very busy with work and he needed a night out badly.
Sorry, just saw he already left! So nevermind on the water and pop chips :-/

Welcome, fellow 9/22er! Those are fantastic, looks like the perfect bachelor party kit and very dude-friendly. I can’t imagine why anyone would call that enabling, it’s not like there’s anything scandalous going on there. Maybe enabling them to feel a little less crappy in the morning? I’m for it.

That’s adorable and useful!

What a fantastic idea!! The only thing I did was pick up a few of the guys from my DH’s bach and was armed with some water and a bottle of Advil.

You sound like an awesome fiance 🙂 And those bags are adorable, but still manly hehe. Nice work!
And if you get any enabler comments, just shrug them off – it is a great idea!

The only thing I will do is pick Fiance up from the airport 🙂 I somehow got out of dropping him off at the airport at 5:30 in the morning (the morning of my bachelorette party, mind you).

Idk I don’t get how bachelor/bachelorette parties have become these huge events that require flying off somewhere else—it’s strange to me.
Obviously you’re ok with what is going on…so I don’t really see a problem with you making the bags..although if he lets it slip theyll probably tease him relentlessly
