Mother-daughter team creates MiniEmergency Kits for brides, college kids and more

American entrepreneurs Georgette Kaplan and Stephanie Kaplan, are the survival gurus behind Ms. & Mrs.

This mother-daughter team created a perfect gifting solution and clever space saver for travelers that is TSA friendly and specific to a host of situations in life.

When Jamie graduated college and headed to her first job, her sister, Stephanie, gave her a cosmetic case filled with needed personal care products that people usually toss in purses and desk drawers.

The idea took off, and they created the Working Girl’s Survival Kit. Since then they have honed the idea to cover men, brides, wedding parties and even college kids and working men and women.

MiniEmergency Kits are all the rage right now for people, saving space and time, and perfect to toss in a carry-on bag for the plane.


They are tiny,  3.5″ x 2″ x 2″ , and are made for College, Dorm, Cheerleader, Working Guy, Wedding Day, Bride, Mother of the Bride, Bridesmaid, Mani-Pedi, Groom, Mother of the Groom, Hermergency with refills for all.

The MiniEmergency kit for her is a 16-piece bag that has:

- 0.017 oz Blistex® Lip Ointment
- Dental Floss
- Ice Drops Breath Freshener
- Emery Board
- 0.8 oz Clear Nail Polish
- 1 Nail Polish Remover Pad
- 0.1 oz Hair Spray

- Double-Sided Tape
- Mending Kit
- 1 Deodorant Towelette
- 1 Small Latex-Free Bandage
- 1 Regular Tampon
- 1 Packet of 2 Tablets of Advil®

What it is lacking are the bad things like Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Petrochemicals, Phthalates and Triclosan.

Small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, the TSA-compliant handy kits are tailored for all kinds of people in different vocations.


The Working Guy’s Survival Kit by Ms. & Mrs. is housed in a sleek mini aluminum attache, with 20 must-have grooming and personal care products for male professionals.

Contains 20 must-haves: Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Dental Floss, Lip Balm, Mints, Pain Reliever, Nail Clipper, Hair Comb, Deodorant, Facial Tissues, Lint Remover, Stain Remover, Static Remover, Wrinkle Remover, Mending Kit, Shoe Shine Sponge, Adhesive Bandages, Shaving Cream, Razor, and Interior Mirror.
