A hen party isn't I'm A Celebrity, you won't be facing harsh conditions and need Bear Grylls number on speed dial (although who wouldn't want Bear Grylls' number? Well, as long as he let's us pick the restaurant, we really don't fancy his cooking), however for a big weekend you might want a mini hen party survival kit.

Homemade hen party survival kits are a fun variation on the traditional party favour. It's also a chance for you to get creative! You can decorate each bag, add funny hen party nicknames and so much more. Go for brightly coloured paper bags or make something out of simple muslin, your hen party survival bags can be as simple or complicated as you want.

Top Tip - If some of the hens haven't met before, add a name tag to each bag until everyone has had time to properly mix and mingle.

So here's our no-nonsense hen do survival kit for girls who want to have fun, but still be up in time for breakfast.

Sugar Boost: Sustain energy

Chocolate for medicinal reasons? But of course! Keeping sugar levels high will help sustain energy and your power to party.

Shot Glass: Be prepared

So everyone can toast to the bride-to-be's health. Order the poison of the nearly-wed's choosing and get them together for a “Three... Two... One...”

Wine: Mini bottle

In case of emergency, open bottle.

Dare Card: Hen night games

Put an individual dare card in each bag to help get the party started. Ask all the group to suggest a dare before the event and then place them in the bags at random (of course you could make sure the star guest just "happens" to get a particular dare). You can see more hen party games here...

Wet Wipe: Freshen up

To freshen up after the meal or during your hen activities these handy little packets are light and just so convenient.

Chewing Gum: Stay fresh

So you can stay fresh (or do impressions of Rizzo from Grease).

Plasters: Be prepared for a night of dancing

Be prepared for any dance related injuries or blisters. As we all know, plasters or gel inserts can be a real lifesaver on big nights out. Especially if you have a new pair of shoes for the occasion, and who wouldn't?!?

Face Spritzer: Refreshing

Invigorating and totally refreshing. A great way to bring tired skin back to life and just what you need in a hot club.

Paracetamol: For the morning

To soothe an aching head or a Berocca to help get you back to your best after the morning after the night before.

Water: Hydrate

Good old H2O, not only do you need it to stay alive but staying hydrated is important for healthy looking skin and can help reduce the effects of potential hangovers.
