I got this heart tin as a wedding party favor. Originally it contained mints but after they were gone, I kept the container.
I thought it would be fun to use it as a survival tin, as I had done a while back with my pocket sized first aid kit. Instead of giving out candy, why not include items that could one day help someone out in an emergency. It’s useful, handy and can be stashed in a desk or purse.
Here are a couple of ideas:
All purpose survival tin
- Strike anywhere matches
- A couple of safety pins
- Anti-bacterial wipe
- Cash: a few coins and a bill
You can also include a couple of water purification tablets, paper clip, rubber bands etc.
First Aid Tin
- A couple sizes of adhesive bandage
- Sanitizing wipe
- Pain reliever
- Antibiotic ointment
- Diarrhea remedy (already inside the tin)
You can also add allergy medicine, a couple of cotton swabs, eye drops etc.
