15 Things Every Girl Needs In Her Emergency Bag | ft. Kali Boxes

Hey, girl! Have you ever been in a sticky situation and just wish you had that one thing in your bag? Every girl needs an emergency kit filled with the essentials, and so I thought I would share my essentials with you! Here are 15 essentials that every girl needs in her DIY emergency bag…This blog post in sponsored by Kali Boxes, but all opinions are my own.

1. Tissues

You can get small travel packages of tissue that are perfect for stuffing in your bag!

2. Hand Sanitizer/Wipes

Gotta be sanitary, right? I found the perfect travel size package of hand wipes that were cupcake flavored, who would have thought?

3. Elastics

I usually always have an elastic on my wrist, but just in case, I always like to have one in my bag.

4. Gum/Mints

Bad breath is THE WORST ๐Ÿ˜‰

5. Chapstick

Chapstick is another must have for me!

6. Lotion

Personally, I absolutely need lotion with my in the winter. Dry cracked hands are the worst.

7. Advil

Having advil on hand is a lifesaver. You never know when those headaches will come and go ๐Ÿ˜‰

8. Band-Aids

Whether they are for yourself, or the kids you are babysitting, band-aids are always a good idea to keep on hand.

9. Deodorant

For obvious reasons ๐Ÿ˜‰

10. Pads/Tampons

11. Pen/Pencil

12. Nail File/Clippers

For all of you girls with gel nails, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a nail file just in case you break a nail.

13. Makeup

It never hurts to have a spare concealor or mini mascara in your bag for those last-minute touch-ups!

14. Cough Drops

You never know when you might strike a cough, so be prepared!

15. Safety Pins

For those unexpected clothing mishaps and seam rips, of course!

    This is so true! My favorite one on your list is lotion…I seem to need it 24/7. Plus, it smells good and I can base the scent on whatever season we’re in, so I love it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I agree with all of this but I think if weโ€™re talking about a teen that drives and spends time by herself pepper spray for self defense. But if weโ€™re talking about younger teens I 100% agree.
