Stag Party Ideas: DIY Stag Do Survival Kit
Stag parties usually don’t involve too much fuss; men tend to lean more towards the simplicity of going out and getting drunk, as opposed to putting any thought into frivolities such as party favours or decorations. While we at Stagit can respect this, we simply cannot ignore the fact that there’s a massive amount of brilliant stag party ideas waiting to be put in motion. One such brilliant idea is the DIY Stag Do Survival Kit. For anyone who’s been to a stag party, we all know they can get a little… chaotic. Drink gets spilled, lads go AWOL and everyone wakes up worse for wear. So, why not throw your boys together a mini survival kit to ensure they come out the other side of your stag party alive? As far as DIY stag party ideas go, this one is the cream-of-the-crop. It takes minimal effort but has maximum effect. Below, we’ve put together a list of suggestions for your survival kits.
Mini bottles of alcohol
Provide your pals with a tiny, shot-sized bottle of their individual favourite alcohol to add a personal touch! Or, pick something like Jagermeister, throw in a can of Red Bull each, et voila – Jagerbombs all round.
Class it up and make your grooms-men feel like gangsters with a high-end cigar for each of them. Cigars are a fantastic little party favour for your guests to enjoy, and it’ll make them feel special. You want the lads to feel special, don’t you?!
For any sticky situations that may occur throughout the night, it’s always good to keep a packet of wet wipes handy. Food dropping, drink spillage, vomit-related incidents… wet wipes are just common sense. They will also come in surprisingly useful for wiping the shame off your face the next morning when you can’t crawl to the shower.
This one’s pretty self-explanatory. Don’t be a fool and wrap your tool lads. What happens on the stag party doesn’t always stay on the stag party, unfortunately (looking at you, chlamydia) and in this day and age unprotected sex is really just silly and inexcusable. Do the single lads a solid and slip some rubbers into their kits.
Paracetamol and Water
Stick a couple of paracetamol in the kit in anticipation for the next morning. A lot of sore heads will be silently thanking you as they wash their painkillers down with half a gallon of water, expressions of utter relief on their tired faces. You’re such a good friend!
Just because one of you is getting hitched doesn’t mean the lads can’t go on the pull. However, no self-respecting young man would ever attempt to chat up anyone with smelly pint-breath, or – god forbid – pukey breath. You probably don’t particularly want to get a whiff of that either! A packet of gum in everyone’s kits is just generally a wise idea.
Before you set off on your stag weekend, first you must do a little bit of research. Make a list of a couple of taxi services in the area you’ll be partying in, and make sure everybody has a copy of them – that way if anybody goes AWOL, they won’t be lost in an unfamiliar place with no idea how to get back to the accommodation. It works a whole lot better than the buddy system!
Throw some snacks into the Survival Kit in case anyone gets peckish during pre-drinks. Snacks are also guaranteed to improve hangover-induced narkiness by at least 80%.*

Nowadays, there’s no fun in spontaneous photos. At the touch of a button you can see the picture straight away, taking the mystery out of seeing photos after a wild night. Give all of your grooms-men a disposable camera to use up during the party. Send them all off to be developed, meet up in the pub the next week and have a good laugh at the state of yourselves.
Packing in a little can of deodorant is never a bad idea, especially when taking on a stag party of epic proportions. Make sure nobody is dancing all night with pit-stains on their good shirt by providing them with the solution before they even need it. (Note: may come in handy the next day for those of you too ill to partake in bathing. We’ve all been there.)
So, now that you know what you’ve got your survival kits sorted out, it’s time to book the wildest night of your life so they can be put to use! Go ahead and get in touch with us so we can start planning a stag party that you’ll never forget.
