21st Birthday Survival Kit

Last year my youngest sister turned 21. As a surprise, my oldest sister, Veronica and I decided we wanted to pack her a ’21st birthday survival kit’ for the night of her birthday and also for the morning after. I shopped around for funny little trinkets and gifts to fill these boxes up and then we hot-glued little notes to each present to explain what each function the specific gifts had. It was super easy and inexpensive, we used travel size items for most of the gifts!
