Before You Buy A Marriage Survival Kit, Know These Things About The Couple
A marriage survival kit is a humorous collection of items that you can buy together or separately and then assemble as a way of joking about the challenges that newly married couples often face. This type of gift can be fun to give to a couple shortly after they get married, or perhaps even on the occasion of their first anniversary. You want your marriage survival kit to have a positive impact, so it's a good idea to think about the couple before you buy the kit. Here are some specific details about them that you can evaluate and consider in order to help you to find the right kit.
Their Sense Of Humor
More than anything, you should give some thought to the couple's collective sense of humor before you buy a marriage survival kit. Some kits are mild, and some are definitely designed for those with unique senses of humor. You don't want to buy a pre-assembled kit or put together a selection of your own items without having a good idea of how the couple will receive your gifts. If you're unsure of the couple's sense of humor, opting for a milder kit will be a good idea.
Unless you're around the couple a lot, you won't always have a clear understanding of the qualities of both parties. Some marriage survival kits make jokes that might not be relevant to every couple. For example, a kit might include a gift card to a local resident with a joke about how bad one spouse's cooking can be. If you've eaten meals at the couple's home and know that they're actually an outstanding cook, this type of gift won't be relevant. By assessing their qualities, you'll be able to find the best kit possible.
Their Love Of Each Other
Your understanding of the love that the couple has for one another can also influence the type of marriage survival kit that you give. For example, some kits have humorous elements about the married couple getting on one another's nerves from time to time — and perhaps jokingly have a pair of ear plugs that one person can wear when the other is ranting. If you know that the couple has a deep love and that even as a joke, they wouldn't wear ear plugs for fear of hurting the other, you can ensure that the kit you buy or assemble has appropriate items.
