My daughter came home this morning with a sweet little gift from her friend’s mom: an adorable locker kit full of essentials for young women and menstruators. So brilliant, right? I had actually thought about putting together a little bin with some snacks, tampons, pads, and hand sanitizer, but honestly, this little zipper kit is so much better!
Here’s everything she included in this locker kit, with some suggestions for other items if you want to make your own:
- Tampons and pads
- Hair ties
- Waterless razor (I had no idea these existed!)
- Hand sanitizer
- Period underwear (brilliant!)
- Bandages (I actually added these!)
It’s not a bad idea to add a couple pieces of candy or a little bag of nuts/dried fruit in case they get low blood sugar, and considering my daughter has gym her first period, I am going to add a little bottle of dry shampoo. And well, masks. Though we’ve got a bunch of those already hanging on hooks in her locker.
And really, if you’re going to make one for your own child, consider making a few – for their friends, or even to drop off at the guidance office for kids who might need one. I have to say it’s one of the loveliest (and most useful) gestures my daughter has received. Thank you, Libby!
