Mommy Survival Kit in a Jar

How do you feel about our mason jar series? Day 3 of the cute series of gifts in a jar is something I love and that I could use every single day of my life. Its  a mommy survival kit! This gift can be give to anyone, a new mom, soon to be mom, a friend, or just anyone that needs a pick my up. Most days my kids have different places to go, I have many loads of laundry,  dishes to do, my baby is teething and I am running on about 5 hours of sleep. In this jar it has a little bit of everything that could make my day a little more doable.

Here is what I put into the jar. Everything I found was at Walmart and I put it all in quart size jar.

Wet Ones and Sanitizer (always a must have around kids), brightening under eye cream (for those lack of sleep eyes), Listerine strips, Mascara and chapstick (so you feel somewhat put together), Crystal Light Energy and a bit of chocolate (because those two things can help just about anything). These are great items for the perfect mommy survival kit!

Just like the rest of the jar series we have this easy mommy survival kit printable that can be printed and cut out, then attached to a cute ribbon with a little glue. I honestly want to keep this in my car and give to a friend that is having a rough day at home with the kiddos! It is the perfect gift for all your friends and a great gift to give yourself.

    Good morning
    What a great idea – one of my son’s teachers is due to have her first baby and this would make the perfect addition to the quilt I have for her new arrival. Thank you for the idea – but I am writing to enquire as to whether I could access an ‘Australian’ Mum version….ie. Mummy Survival Kit Printable? Thanking you in advance.

    I absolutely love this Mummy one and the idea of having it in the car ready to hand out to a Mummy in need. I’m in Australia so it’s Mummy not Mommy – any chance you could do a printable suitable for us Non-US residents who spell it differently 🙂

    Do you have blank labels? I do childcare and would love to make these for the dad’s or grandparents/etc… as Christmas gifts. Also would make a great first of the year teacher gift! (I have 3 of my own and we try to get on the teachers good side ASAP 🙂 ).
