Mom’s Back-to-School Survival Kits! {Gift Idea}

We’ve been back in school for a couple weeks now and I’m seeing the effects the transition from being an afternoon kindergarten mom to a first grade mom is having on my friends :)  The kids look ready to go but the moms are starting to look a little worn down.  I thought it would be fun to give some of my favorite moms a Mom’s Back-to-School Survival Kit complete with everything they need to get through this tough time.

Knowing that I was making multiple “kits” I headed to Sam’s Club to see what kind of things would be good for moms.  Sam’s Club was an easy choice because they sell items in bulk and it makes a lot of sense {and saves a lot of money} to shop there when preparing multiples of the same gift.  Plus I always find things I both need and want at Sam’s Club!  
Bryce and I dropped Reece off at school, took one more look at those very weary moms, and headed to Sam’s Club.  We found all kinds of awesome stuff for the kits and of course, a lot of stuff for our home.  I made up my shopping list before I headed out too keep me {kind of} on track.  Bryce loves shopping and had a great time checking out all of the Halloween decorations that were out.

We made our way over to the personal care area and found all kinds of great items that were perfect for the kit.  These Neutrogena wipes are perfect for moms on the go {or anyone for that matter} and there are four packages – perfect for splitting up!

We also found some yummy candy, cozy socks, and lots more!  You can check out our entire Sam’s Club shopping trip {here}.

I had so much fun putting these Survival Kits together.  I picked up some bins and other odds and ends to really fill them up and got everything all laid out.

Each kit includes:
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleanesing Towelettes
1 pair Cozy Socks
Revlon Manicure Kit
Dial Complete Hand Soap
Candy {Hershey’s Nuggets and Pearson’s Mints}
Trident Layers Gum
Chapstick/Lip Gloss

I was excited to try out these wipes before I gave them to my friends and they are so AWESOME!  I keep my pack in my purse so I always have them on hand.  Make sure to check out Neutrogena online as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

What would you like to see in your survival kit??
