My brother-in-law is getting married in three weeks! So excited for him!
So I had the idea, to make him and his fiance a Newlywed Survival Kit, as wedding present. Basically a kit of things to get you through the first year of marriage.
So far I have...
A Dave Ramsey Book, because money is a major source of newlywed and marital conflict.
My two favorite cleaning products, Bar Keeper's Friend and Castile Soap, becauase we fought a lot about chores in the first year and these products make chores a lot easier!
And some dishtowels off their registry to go along with the cleaning products.
A couples' devotional book, Night Light, because reading and praying together can do wonders.
A Cookbook, because cooking together and cooking for each other is such a fun part of being a newlywed.
And I'm going to put it all in a cleaning bucket, because that's a great way to store cleaning supplies.
I want to add a couple more $5-$15 items, but I can't think of what else to add! What else would you add to a Newlywed Survival Kit?*
*Nothing to racy, ok? This is my husband's brother we're talking about here.
