My bachelorette party is coming and I wanted to create something cute and funny that my friends could use. Here is the problem—I needed my “hangover kit” to be quick, simple”¦and cheap. The details of my night are being kept a secret from me, so in order to get an idea of how many kits I would need to make, I had to ask for a range from BM Jasmin. She told me that I should prepare enough for 15-20 (oh”¦my excitement for this epic party just grew that much more).
In order to make these simple kits, you will need:
- Brown paper bag
- Candy of your choice
- Small bottle of alcohol
- Single hole punch
Inside of each bag, I put candy that I like (Starburst, Jolly Rancher suckers, BlowPops, Orbitz gum), a can of ginger ale, peanut butter crackers, small bottle of Barcardi Rum, Advil (four pills).
I set up my brown paper bags for the assembly line. I know only 17 bags are pictured, but I made 20. As I was throwing the contents in the bags, I got a nostalgic feeling of being in elementary school when I got to put the Valentine’s Day candy in everyone’s bag. That was my favorite part (along with writing the names).
After I got the bags filled, I rolled the top of the bags over two or three times. Once I had the roll folded over, I placed my message on the bag and punched two holes on each side. The final step was to tie it with ribbon.

They were super simple to make and fairly inexpensive. I think I spent a total of $25.
Here is the final product. Hopefully these will be a hit.
Are you providing a hangover kit? As a guest, would you find it useful?
