Wine Lovers Survival Kit

I was recently contacted by a representative for Man Crates about doing a personal survival kit post.  They have really cool gifts for the men in your life!  You should definitely check out their site.  (Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.) 

I decided to do a twist on it for wine lovers...since I am definitely a wine lover!!  What would I put in my wine lover survival kit?


#1-Corkscrew Electric Wine Opener-because opening wine bottles gets more difficult the more you drink!  I definitely don't want to be stuck somewhere and not be able to get the bottle of wine open!  (This happened once in Mexico.  We were hanging out with a group of people after the resort bars closed and we had wine but no opener.  One guy had the idea to use a butter knife to push the cork into the wine...which worked...until he dropped the bottle and broke it.  Saddest wine story ever!)

#2-Lots of wine-because you can't have a wine survival kit without wine!  This is a no brainer.  See above about not being able to open a bottle...what's worse?  Running out of wine!

(Found on Pinterest, but no real source)
 #3-At least 2 glasses-because it is always better to drink with friends!  Or just in case your glass of wine gets lonely.


#4-Yoga Pants-because if I could live in yoga pants, I totally would.  Plus, wine and yoga pants just go together.  Wine not be comfy while having a glass or two?  (see what I did there?  he, he ;-) )


#5-My iPhone-because how else will I be able to check in on Facebook, document the wine drinking on Instagram and Tweet all of the brilliant quotes/thoughts/and ideas that come from wine drinking??

What would you put in a survival kit?  Fun theme or more realist...  I would probably realistically put: running shoes, my kindle, wine and opener, hair tie, and mascara in a survival kit.

I'm linking up with Heather, Katie, and Clare for Friday Favorites/Five Things Friday since there are 5 things in my survival kit and wine is one of my favorite things!!  Check out their blogs to see the other linkups and fun Friday posts!
