One of my close friends is 18 this month and I was thinking of making her a "Uni survival kit" for when she starts in September with things like: miniatures of alcohol, condoms, caffeine tablets, face masks, scented candles, make up essentials, chocolates, novelty bottle openers and jokey things like a medical kit and a map of Glasgow with the bus routes and sick bags. Along with this me and my boyfriend were going to make her a book full of drinking game ideas and cocktail recipes (you can probably guess she enjoys drinking) along with a bottle of vodka maybe?
I didn't want to buy her just the usual birthday stuff and I thought these presents had a more personal and funny touch since I know what she's like, so do people think this is a good idea??
Yes, that's a great idea!
I (and my group of friends) gave something similar as a present two weeks ago: a big box that included flakes (which are hard to come by in the Netherlands), a DVD, some really nice glasses, a pot with teabags in it, a tea mug, a hanger for jewellery and such and a medical kit as well.
My friend isn't that much into drinking so we didn't give her any alcohol, but if you're friend does like it, she will love the present!
That sounds great, might do something like that for my little brother when he goes to uni
Haha thats amazing! if someone got me that I'd be well chuffed (maybe not the make-up though) scented candles are good though ¬.¬ lol
I think any friend would be glad of that, it sounds very thoughtful and will actualy come in handy! sure most of it will be gone after a week/month watever but I'tl be one of those things they enjoy and remember
Perhaps get a unique container/bag to put it in so its even more memorable?
side note: somthing I do (dont think this would be good for yours) when I wana joke is I put someones gift in a bad container like a ceral box or so forth then wrap that, and they open it and are all like WTH cornflakes? then find the good gift inside lol
Why not go the whole hog and include some Canesten and a 1mg shot of adrenaline?
