Wedding Gift – Fort Building Kit for Adults!


Wedding Gift - Fort Building Kit for Adults!

Here at Unique Gifter, we are all about taking wedding gift registry items and adding something fun to spice them up!  Today’s idea is exactly that.  It’s a Fort Building Kit for Adults!

Have you ever had the luxury of sleeping in amazing sheets?  They are delightful!  Sheet sets are one of those things that end up on wedding gift lists all the time, but do not get purchased very often.  If you evaluate usefulness of wedding registry gifts, like I did for televisions, then sheet sets are right up there at the top of the list for time spent using!  However you may find yourself thinking “sheet sets make such a boring wedding gift.”  Fear not, that problem can be considered solved!

I present to you, the free, printable “Fort Building Kit.”

Fort Building Kit Gift Instructions

1.  Select a set of sheets from the wedding registry.

2.  Download and print this printable in colour.  Then fold it in half, like a card.  [Click to open PDF in a new tab, then press Ctrl+P or click the Print button in your browser.]

3.  Pick up some or all of the following:

  • Roll of Duct Tape
  • Clothes Pegs
  • Safety Pins
  • Elastics
  • Snack Food
  • Beverages
  • DVD
  • Books
  • Popcorn

4.  Tape the printable to the package of sheets and wrap your gift.

5.  Write an awesome wedding card.

6.  Insist that your friends actually do build the fort.  Ask for photographic evidence.

7.  Sit back and smile.  You are awesome.

How to Build a Fort

When was the last time you built a fort?

*Disclaimer: This is provided purely for fun.  These instructions were designed for adults and choosing to attempt any sort of fort is at your own risk.  Try not to get hurt; heavy things are heavy, hot things can start fires, glass is sharp when it breaks, etc.  Please use common sense.

  1. This is such a fun idea! I would have cracked up if I had gotten this for a gift. I built a fort with some kids I babysat recently, but never just for myself!

      Oh fun! I haven't built one in ages, I should. I'll make a no-kids-allowed one!

  2. I LOVE this idea! I need to be more playful/fun haha

    • Anne - Unique Gifter says:

      Thanks!! I haven't built a fort in forever, I probably should have done it as "research" for this ;-)

    lol about the disclaimer. this is an awesome idea! I just built one with my niece but don't see why adults couldn't play as well.

    • Anne - Unique Gifter says:

      Haha, ya, you never know! Some people can be ridiculous. I'm glad to hear that you got to build one, I bet it was fun!

  6. Awesome idea! We got a tent for a wedding gift that we have yet to use so a couple months ago we set it up in the living room for a movie night! It wasn’t that comfortable so we moved to the couch halfway through but it was still a fun date night!

    • Anne - Unique Gifter says:

      Oh, that sounds like fun! I hope you're planning to get some use out of it this summer.

  7. Love this idea, very creative! Definitely would consider giving something like this as a gift.

    I always built forts when I was little – it would be so fun as an adult!

      Yes, it really would be… I need to put it back on my to-do list.

    There is always something you can do with sheets including using them as an escape ladder. :)

    • Anne - Unique Gifter says:

      ;-) That's fantastic, I should figure out how to incorporate that in the printable somehow.

  10. I had so much fun with stuff like that when I was a kid. Why did I ever stop?

      I don't know why I did either! There's probably lots of awesome things we should revisit.
