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.

Embarrassing Stag Party Ideas (No Cameras!) – NSFW
Stag parties have certain aims and objectives that must be upheld: 1) to get drunker as a group than you have ever been in your lives and 2) to embarrass the groom-to-be as horrifically as possible. While we’re pretty sure you guys can take care of the first one by yourselves, the latter involves a little bit more creativity. With that in mind, here is our compilation of the most embarrassing stag party ideas of all time. Pick your poison from the list below and begin preparing your evil plans to make your stag blush like a virgin in a whorehouse.
Little People Hire
As far as embarrassing stag party ideas go, this one is right up there with the best of them. Many stag parties opt to rent out a Little Person for the evening and handcuff him to the stag. You can ask him to dress in costume if you wish (we’d recommend kitting him out in the same clothes as the stag for maximum effect.) During the three hours they spend together, the little person has to do everything the stag does, including drinking. By the end of the evening, you’ll not only be carrying the stag home, but his partner-in-crime should be fairly tipsy too! Okay, you might want to allow some cameras for this one because we won’t lie, it’s pretty hilarious.
Quirky Suits and Costumes
A very popular theme in the world of stag parties, silly suits and crazy costumes are sure to rev up the embarrassment factor. You could all choose to go in-costume as a group, or save this particular shame for the groom-to-be. An increasingly popular costume-choice for the stag is a delightful dildo number. A rather flattering outfit, it comes in varying shades of nude and works well when paired with a bright-red face. Get yours from amazon now and make sure your groom doesn’t miss out on one of the most embarrassing stag party ideas since the dawn of time. He might feel like a bit of a knob (aaayyyy!) but the rest of the group will get a good laugh out of it.
A twist on the traditional stag party activity, why not leave your mate red-faced and raging with you by organising him a male stripper? Take some time prior to the stag-do to plant the seeds of shame with this one; keep dropping hints to the stag that you’ve organised him a lapdance from a fine female, ensuring that he’ll be extra surprised when the beefcake you’ve booked walks through the door. (Maybe have a camera at the ready for this one too. You’ll never want to forget the look on the stag’s face.)
This one only requires a little bit of pre-planning, and the best part is it’s free. Tell the stag to arrive at the venue earlier than the rest of the crew, leading him to think you’ll all be there at that time too. Let him stew there alone for a little bit, thinking that no one’s showed up for him. (Cruel, we know.) The embarrassment of thinking he’s dealing with a bunch of no-shows will quickly be swapped for the embarrassment of you and the lads barrelling through the door, twenty minutes late and roaring his name. This is one of the meaner embarrassing stag party ideas, but if it’s executed correctly, the stag will see the funny side. (Hopefully!)
If you’re taking the stag-party on tour, this embarrassing stag party idea is a must. When the group arrives to the accommodation, the best man/whoever organised the accommodation should take a couple of minutes to inform the groom that reception has no booking on file for the group. Enjoy the hilarious sight of him losing the plot for as long as you can keep a straight face, before finally revealing the truth. Nothing like a good old-fashioned blood-pressure spike to kick off a weekend of sessioning!
Another twist on the stripper idea, this one involves a little bit of cunning. First, you’ll need two strippers; the typical type, and a lady of a slightly, er, larger persuasion. Let the groom enjoy a little bit of a show from the proper dancer, before having her blindfold him for his personal lap dance. This is where the curvier lady comes in. Have the strippers swap roles and let the larger lady provide the lap dance, before the big reveal at the end *ahem*. This will work particularly well if the groom has had a few drinks as his senses won’t really be up to scratch, so he won’t cop on to the trickery too quickly.
The Lamp Post
An iconic stag party tradition, the lamp post prank is one of the oldest, most embarrassing stag party ideas in the book. We’ve all seen it; some poor lad with his jeans around his ankles, scarlet-faced, cable-tied to a lamp post and left to his own devices. However, the fact that it’s tradition doesn’t mean it’s not funny as hell for everyone involved… except the groom, of course. Just don’t leave him there for too long or forget about him. It gets cold overnight, y’know.
Okay, so technically this one could have fallen under costumes, but it’s just so funny we had to give it its own point. We’ll finish this list of embarrassing stag party ideas off with a lovely costume suggestion – the humble mankini. Just take a moment and imagine with us; the entire group of you, strutting to the bar like gangsters, cigars in your mouths, ready to go wild… led by a man in a lime-green, ass-baring mankini. We can actually feel the future shame of the stag from here.
