Whether you’re a mom yourself or looking for a cute gift idea, a mom survival kit is a fun way to show your support. It’s also a good reminder of things you might need as a mom to make life just a little bit easier.
Mom Survival Kit Ideas
The great thing about a mom survival kit is that you can customize it for the mom you’re giving it to. Is she a chocolate lover? It’s a great treat to have on hand when you’re up all night with a new baby. Coffee drinker? Add it in to help give new mom and pick me up in the morning.
Here are some ideas for mom survival kits that make perfect gifts or work great for keeping yourself prepared!
Snacks for Mom
It seems like moms always have snacks for the kids, but what about mom? I find myself eating better if I plan ahead which makes a snack kit a great mom survival kit! Here are some ideas to include:
- granola bars
- crackers in packaging that doesn’t get squished too easily
- small chocolates
- dried fruit pouches or fruit leather
- veggie sticks (found in the chip aisle)
Put together a small basket of snacks to give as a gift or for yourself!
Mom on the Go
One thing I do have is a little kit in the car that has plenty of supplies just for me. I have stuff for the kids too, but this one is just for me. Whether we’re just traveling around town or headed out on a road trip, here are some things I include:
- Stain treatment stick
- Travel size deodorant
- Travel size pain reliever
- Small hairbrush
- Nail file
- Nail clippers
- Feminine products
Recently I added a new item to my on the go mom survival kit because after two kids, I’ve been dealing with some bladder leakage issues. Yep, there it is. I’m just being honest because I know I’m not alone!
35 million women experience stress urinary incontinence which is a common type of bladder leakage. It can be triggered by coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting or even exercise. These are exactly the times when I often have a few issues. Poise has a new product that works well in my on the go kit. The new Poise Impressa Bladder Supports which are the first over-the-counter internal product that is designed to stop the leaks before they even happen.
They can help prevent leaks for up to 8 hours and are inserted like a tampon which makes them easy to use. They come in three sizes and you should start with the Poise Impressa Sizing Kit to find the right size for your needs.
Then you can add your size to your on the go kit and you’re really ready to hit the road! If you’re planning on using the product, please read the product insert to make sure that Poise Impressa is right for you before using it.
