Are hen party Survival kits/bags essential?

Of course not!  Nothing on a hen party is essential but it is a nice touch! I honestly don't know how many times I have been on a hen, popped the survival kit on the beside locker only to raid it for half its contents before going to bed (mainly the taytos) and then raid it again the next morning (mainly the painkillers and water!). Boy have I been thankful! I no longer wonder where its name comes from!

What do I put in a hen party survival kit/bag?

What do I put in a hen party survival kit is a question we get asked alot and there is no straight forward answer to give you. What you put in the kit/bag is completely up to you and your budget.  You can purchase ready made survival bags/kits from various sources. Check out these options: I do love these minis  - they are so classy!  Or these novelty kits on Etsy are also a nice.
