I’m a bit obsessed with being prepared. Not to the point where I have years worth of canned food in a closet, but I want to make sure my entire family is safe when we travel and go on adventures. Knowing that I have a first aid kit with me in my backpack or in the car definitely makes me feel more stress free when experiencing something new.

You can always assemble your own first aid kit if you have found a great portable bag. Make sure you check the list below to ensure you’ve included all the essential items in the kit. If DIY isn’t for you, we also have a great option or starting point for a personalized kit.

This post is continuing the seasonal fun of the 2018 Stocking Stuffer Giveaways. For Day #5, we’ve partnered with Alcott, one of my absolute favorite brands and we’ll be giving away a few of their First Aid Kits for people and pets!
