The key to surviving a long bachelorette weekend spent drinking heavily and not getting enough sleep is to be prepared.
While your bride and fellow bridesmaids are busy packing their favorite outfits, eye shadow palettes and hair dryers, you’ll need to get ready for the day of drinking and the ensuing debauchery.
You do not know where to start ? Don’t worry girl, we’ve got you covered. We’ve compiled a singles (aka “Oh Shit”) survival kit list that includes everything you’ll need to party, survive the struggle, and get home in one pain-free piece!
Step One: Pack It With Party Appetizers
The first step in building a bachelorette survival kit is to pack it with everything you need to host your party! Here are our top recommendations for this category:
Depending on what type of drinker you and your girls are, the first thing you’ll need to add to your “Oh Shit” kit is alcohol. We recommend either mini shots or a champagne/prosecco split. Feeling fiery? Have one of each!
Enhance your presentation by decorating your liquor with one of these adorable additions:
Now that you have the spirits, it’s time to find them a home. If your party is full of shooters, we love these personalized shot glassesor for a crew that likes to sip their sauce, these frosted cups are a perfect choice:
Want to take your “Oh Shit” kit up a notch? Give your girls their very own personalized cup they can use for years to come:
Don’t think we forgot about you girls who love beer and soda water! Keep your cans cool with these clever “Bride Claw” slim kooziesor for a more personal touch, design your own custom coolers:
MODERN MOH TIP: These koozies don’t just work for beers, they can also fit around a standard sized mug. We recommend these when you’re on the go (aka bar hopping) as they fit easily in your purse or pocket!
No good bachelorette party is complete without its fair share of phallus-shaped straws. Whether you’re 25 or 50, nothing makes a girl group laugh more than sipping on a plastic penis.
Step out with these pretty pink and purple straws that look like the real deal or keep it a little more PG-13 with these colorful cutouts:
MODERN MOH TIP: Be sure to take them everywhere you go – it’s always hysterical to turn heads with these popping out of your drink!
Step two: fill it with fun gifts
The next step in building a hangover survival kit is to fill it with fun bachelorette party gifts. Not only will these help you in your hour of need, but they also make great accessories! Here are our top picks:
Having and holding back your hair (whether dancing on the bar or praying to the porcelain goddess). These bridal bands can also be used as super cute bracelets!
Because sometimes you need to hide your glassy eyes after a long day or block out that harsh sun after a long night. These heart-shaped retro shades should do the trick!
Just because your liver hates you doesn’t mean your lips have to. Keep them hydrated and soft all weekend long with these shea butter balms!
Every bride and her crew need an ink to match. These mix and match temporary tattoos are the perfect accessory!
Step 3: Stock up on hangover aids
No bachelorette party hangover kit is complete without some hangover helpers! Here’s what you need to include:
Partying all day and all night with your girls is bound to lead to big headaches the next morning. Add individually wrapped painkillers to help relieve pain.
IV Liquid Powder Sachets
If you’ve never used Liquid IV to cure a hangover, you’ve seriously missed something. Simply add the powder packet to a bottle of water and let the electrolytes work their magic.
Trust us when we say there will be scrapes and bruises along the way. Mix up a few of these adhesives, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.
When you’re out all day and all night, it’s important to keep your hands so cool and clean. Give each girl her own personal sanitizer when things get a little sticky.
