We just got back from Vegas and oh boy… did we have fun! It was a very special birthday for one of my closest friends, and so I had to go all out! I have an obsession with planning parties:) These hangover kits were such a fun addition to our trip, and they were so helpful to have after those looonnnnggg Vegas nights. Plus, I wanted to make something that the guys would use too, so I included some “night out” survival items as well.

How fun is this design? Obviously, the whole #squad was in Vegas so these were a must. I feel like a cute outer shell is the first step to these hangover kits:)

Okay, you may have just read this and thought, “So gimmicky…”. I thought the same thing when I was sent these. Basically, you take two chewables every couple of drinks, whenever you feel like you need them. I put these to the ultimate test on my brother-in-laws 21st birthday. I took two after the first few, and then two more in the morning. These may not cure it all after a night of drinking, but they help tremendously! I’ve talked about them in my list of “things you need if you love wine” post, and these are the perfect answer to a night in Vegas. Get them here… you’ll thank me later:)


These are lifesaver if you love red wine, have had a lot to drink, or just need a refresher throughout the day. Full review on these here. You can try them out for yourself here.

Shout Wipes – Portable Stain Treater:

Because no one wants to be walking around with a stain after they’ve spilled their drink.

IMG_5067Fit Sticks:

These little babies are a lifesaver when you are not feeling so hot… you had better believe I used them in these hangover kits for after our nights in Vegas! The ingredients are all natural, and they are zero calories. Also, they are gluten-free, non GMO, vegan, and they are made here in the U.S. This product has some great benefits, including: fat loss, energy, mood enhancement, appetite control, blood glucose control, and antioxidants. The benefits I felt most were more energy, a positive change in mood, and a lot more control over my appetite. Of course, these sticks will affect everyone differently. You can contact my amazing friend here to get more info of these fantastic products!

This is honestly the best way to boost your electrolytes back up. Not only do I use it when my kiddos are sick, but I’ve packed some of these to-go pouches for when we felt extremely dehydrated the morning after. Come on, we’ve all been there.

Skin Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels:

These hydrogel eye patches are EVERYTHING. I have used them for years now, not only for events like this, but mainly because I’m a mama of four and these eyes get some bags underneath of them. I really love the cooling effect that these have, and they reduce the puffiness around your eyes by so much! It’s amazing. Such a necessity for a Vegas weekend and a hangover kit for any event where you might have too much champagne the night before… not that I’ve ever done that;)

Mini Lint Rollers:

I wear black clothing all the time, and a little black dress is a staple for a night out. These are a must have for me!

What are your must-haves for a night out or a special event bag like this? What would you add to the list?

*Cheers to the necessities we need for nights when we might have too much to drink*
