If I Were Stuck On A Deserted Island....

Have you ever heard of Man Crates? Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates! Their mission is to end the difficulties that are associated with buying gifts for men. Why am I telling you this? Well, recently they contacted me and challenged me to create a Essential Survival Kit." This is a kit containing 5 things I need to have if I were stuck on a deserted island. Hopefully, this never ever ever happens to me, but if it does I would need:

1. My family: Yup, all 5 of us. We are a family and we stick together. Besides, we would drive each other nuts and force us to get creative and find a way off the island!

2. Swiss Army Knife: This is so JC can go all "MacGyver" on everything he sees. He could build us a house, get food, build toys, whatever we would need.

3. All our tech: Why? You try dealing with 3 cranky kids that are used to playing on electronics all day! Oh and you know I would be writing blog post after blog post of our adventures and have them all ready to hit "Publish" as soon as I got off the island and near some Wi-Fi!

4. Solar Charger: Gotta keep all the entertainment charged!

5. Toothbrushes & toothpaste: Yup, I'm that shallow. I don't need to be smelling nasty dragon-breath all day!

Obviously, I would need more than these 5 things, but these are the essentials! What would be your 5 essentials?

Dislcosure: This post was inspired by ManCrates, Inc. I was not compensated in any way and all opinions are my own!


  1. I was asked this recently. I think I said my camera, books, water and protein bars! Maybe avocados too!
    My family is a brilliant answer, though! I didn't even say it.

  2. I think I would need a toothbrush too :) I hate having morning breath! My husband is the worst to shop for, we normally give each other tech gifts since we are both impossible to buy for!
