As the pandemic starts to ebb, it’s no secret we’re all going to be busy and on the go again soon, whether it’s returning to the office or taking exciting weekend trips.
Worried you might forget to bring something on your travels after a year and a half stuck at home (don’t worry, we’ve all been there)? these handy emergency kits might be just what you’re looking for. OH SH!T KITS are stylish, carefully designed kits packed with all the essentials you might need on the go, whether it’s a long day at work or a weekend getaway.
Founder Vineeta Minhas is an events professional with over 15 years of experience. From working on large-scale galas and intimate dinners to fundraising events, thinking about that “OH SH!T” moment has become second nature for her.
The business was inspired by the trusty kits Vineeta created for herself on busy event days, to help keep her “cool as a cucumber”. Eventually, she started creating special kits as gifts for family, friends and weekend getaways, and OH SH!T KITS was brought to life.
“One thing I learned along the way is that there will always be essentials you should have on you, no matter what,” says Minhas, “As time went on, these DIY kits became staples of mine. I would take them on weekend trips or to work, and they became super handy!”
Prior to launching the business on April 28th, 2021 (which also happens to be her birthday!), the idea to create OSK had been in the back of Minhas’ mind for a few years, after she noticed a gap in the market. When COVID-19 hit last year, Minhas was laid off from her job, which gave her time to start the business.
Currently, there are three kits to choose from: small, medium and large. The small is for your daily needs—think work, school or errands. Taking an exciting weekend trip this summer? Then the large has all your overnight essentials, including a toothbrush and razor, medicine, first-aid kit and even a charging cord!
Ready to take on the world again? Grab your OH SH!T KIT and show the world who’s boss, while making it look effortless in the process.
