Office 72 Hour Kit Valentine’s Gift Idea

Are you having a hard time deciding what to get your “special someone” for Valentines Day? Well worry no more. We have made it easy for you – and what’s better then the gift of preparedness? Send your loved one to work with a special 72 Hour Kit for the Office. We even made a contents list and cute little tag for you to attach to the container you gather the contents in.

For the tag – that reads “Because I always want you to be safe” and contents list, click here. As always, you may customize this list to meet your specific needs and don’t worry if you can’t get all the items at once. Put a few of the items in, and keep giving them extra “parts” as special surprises through out the year.

IN THE KIT (buy trial size if you can)
– food (protein bars, granola bars, beef jerky, candy, fruit roll ups)
– toothbrush/toothpaste
– washcloth/facewash/bodywash
– shampoo/conditioner
– razor/shaving cream/deodorant
– change of socks/underwear
– kleenex/wet wipes
– hand sanitizer
– travel-size first aid kit including small bottle of Tylenol
– work gloves
– rain poncho
– space blanket
– small flashlight with spare batteries
– a whistle (to draw the attention of rescue workers)
– carbon-filtering dust mask (for smoke, dust, debris, etc.)
– small novel
– small radio with spare batteries
– cash (small bills for vending machines)
– contents list

    My husband works in a highrise building downtown Chicago. This is compact enough to tuck into a corner or a drawer of his office. I love it! Thanks!

    This would be a great Christmas gift for family members that still work.

    I like this one for my ex-boyfriend. We are still good friends and I would like to do something just not something romantic. I say wrap each item in a cute note. water you are so refreshing , nuts- I go nuts when I’m around you/ you’re a nut, toothpaste you make me feel minty fresh , small change You put the bling in my life etc etc .

  • OK! That’s just adorable!! And yes, for Valentine’s day….if you have to make it more “romantic” drop a picture of yourself in it…maybe a love note sealed with a kiss!

    You know- we forgot to say why – People in 9/11 said crowbars would have been handy to pry open elevators that were stuck.
    Either that or smacking their annoying boss over the head? Whichever works –

  • I like this idea. I never know what to get my husband for Valentine’s day – thanks!

    But one question…a crowbar? Tell me, tell me…

    I LOVE this idea. I think there is nothing more romantic than taking care of each other. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this:)

    The typos are fixed! Thanks for catching these things guys.

    Cortney – I’m glad you are using the idea! Let us know what he thinks πŸ™‚

    Gaby – We have been meaning to do an “office kit” for a while and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do it. You definitely don’t need to ONLY do it at valentine’s time. It’s something they really SHOULD have no matter how or when you give it to him.

    what a cute idea.probably I will not do it for valentines day but Im planning on doing the kit for his office and what a perfect way to give it to my cute husband

    thanks girls for the idea I love it!!!!
    and I think that doing the kit for him defenily will show him how much I love him and care about him that in case of an emergency he will be fine.

  • Cortney

    I think it’s very romantic, but then again, one of the best ways that my husband said “I love you” was by getting us life insurance policies. Nothing shows love to me like making sure we’re all taken care of.
    I love this gift! Thank you for posting it!
    One small editing note for you- the dust mask is written as dusk mask. I only noticed because I was typing us the list to take shopping. I’m definitely doing this for Valentine’s day!
    Thanks again!

    hahaha, Karen – funny thought. We figured it was either this or a loaf of bread on a food storage blog. The tag says, “Because I always want you to be safe” – sort of romantic isn’t it? Sort of?

    I promise you that I am sincerely not trying to be rude, but I don’t understand this as a Valentine’s gift. There is nothing really loving or romantic about it. In fact, it almost feels like an affair kit. “Here’s your hotel bag…toothbrush, shaving cream, body wash, fresh underwear, cash…everything you need so you won’t have to come home to me tonight.”

      My husband is working until midnight at the moment. In years past, I threatened his bosses by saying I going to set up a “hotel” for him: cot, bedding, hygiene, laundry…this is a great idea for those who “live” at the office.
