Alright, fellow hens, listen up! If you’re planning a hen-do, skip the lacklustre hen do party bags and just go straight for the jugular: the hangover hen kit.

We all know that a hen do is a wild ride filled with unforgettable moments and questionable decisions. And let’s be honest, those questionable decisions often go hand in hand with a nasty side effect, aka a hangover. 

But fear not, I’ve got the ultimate guide to creating the perfect hangover kit. It won’t get rid of the dull ache of regret, but it’ll leave you feeling somewhat human. From miracle potions to soothing remedies, we’ve got all the secret weapons you need to recover from the hen night shenanigans and come out sparkling on the other side.

So grab your sunglasses, pop a paracetamol (or two), and get ready to go again on day two.



A hangover kit is like a trusty sidekick that saves the day after a night of hen do debauchery. It’s a little package of magic that’s designed to rescue you from the clutches of that relentless hangover monster.

We’re talking about the holy trinity of hangover remedies: hydration, rejuvenation, and disguise.

Hydration, because we all know that a lot of our headache is simply dehydration masquerading as regret. So, water bottles or rehydration sachets are a must to replenish those lost fluids and restore your inner hydration goddess.

Rejuvenation, because let’s face it, we want to look somewhat lively even when we’re feeling like a mashed potato. So, toss in some under-eye patches, face masks, and maybe even a mini-size hairbrush to tame those tangles and restore some dignity to the group.

And last but not least, disguise. Because sometimes the world is just too bright and too loud for our fragile souls. So, throw in a pair of oversized sunglasses, a chic hat to hide your tousled hair, and perhaps some concealer to work some makeup magic.


I mean, no, not really. You’re still going to feel bad whether you slap on a facemask and down a vitamin sachet or not.  But, they do serve a purpose. In fact, not just one, but three. Yes, it’s a triple threat.

  • PARTY FAVOUR Your hen do squad is all dolled up, ready to hit the town and what better way to send them off than with a token of your love and gratitude? A hangover kit screams, “Hey, go hard tonight and this will help you in the morning” — I don’t know about you, but that sounds a helluva lot more appealing than a penis straw.
  • A SIGN OF APPRECIATION Planning a hen do can be a ball-ache. Managing expectations, and pulling off the perfect balance between class and crass. Your friends deserve a round of applause for sticking by your side throughout the journey. A hangover kit shows that you appreciate their support and willingness to go along with the shenanigans. 
  • HANGOVER RECOVERY KIT And finally, the hangover kit serves as an actual hangover recovery tool. Let’s face it, after a Last Rodeo, the morning after can be a battlefield of headaches, queasiness, and regret. Within a little kit lies the potential for salvation. The carefully curated items inside provide a much-needed dose of hydration, a touch of self-care, and a bit of disguise to help everyone face the music. 

Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Can a hangover kit truly rescue me from the depths of hangover hell?” Well, no. It won’t perform miracles, but it sure can make the journey a little more bearable. 

How To Create Your Own Hen Do Hangover Kit

When it comes to hens, we know how to have a good time, and how to bounce back like champions. Let’s get into how to create your own hen do hangover kit… because let’s face it, when it comes to surviving the aftermath of a wild night out, you need all the help you can get. 

Step 1: The Essentials

Every hangover kit needs its foundation, and that starts with hydration. We’re talking personalised water bottles, electrolyte-rich beverages too, and the biggie: pain relief. Those pounding headaches won’t stand a chance against a couple of trusty painkillers. Toss in some antacids for those rebellious stomachs too. 

Step 2: Snack Attack

Fill your kit with an assortment of delicious snacks that could rival Asda. Think energy bars, a lolly and anything else that will satisfy those unpredictable cravings. Oh, and let’s not forget the secret weapon against morning-after nausea — good old ginger sweets. 

Trust me, your queasy stomach will thank you.

Step 3: Beauty on the Fly

We’re talking pocket-sized face wipes for a quick refresh and travel-sized dry shampoos to rescue those post-party locks. If you’re looking for inspo, Sophie Habboo’s hen do featured Charlotte Tilbury Blush Wand, a Jane Darcy Luxury Silk Eye Mask and a 111Skin Rose Gold Illuminating Eye Mask. Probably out of 95% hens price range… but, we can all use the inspo.

Step 4: Disguise and Conquer

Sunglasses are a best friend. Slip on a pair and instantly transform into a mysterious, hangover-conquering goddess. Extra points for oversized frames that shield your eyes and your dignity. And let’s not forget the mighty power of breath mints. 

Step 5: Personal Touches

This is where you get to add your own flair to the hangover kit. Maybe a personalised note of encouragement, a funny quote to lift spirits, or a picture of the hen do squad in all its glory. Get creative and make it a keepsake.


If you’ve got too much on your plate already to be worried about putting electrolytes in cotton bags you bought on Amazon, bite the bullet and go ready-made. Luckily, there are some great hangover hen kits out there that can do the job for you. Our favourites include:

Team Hen has a great alternative to the Gigi & Olive classic for those on a budget with their Recovery Kit. Every bit as cute, the kits come in a thick cotton reusable bag with the age old quote ‘I regret nothing’ printed front and centre. Inside, you’ll find a face mask, a baby wipe and a hair tie among some other tat. Add your own paracetamol, Vitamin C sachet and Alka Seltzer and you’re on to a winner.

Pinch Provisions Hangover Kit

The Pinch Provisions Hangover Kit is just a handy little kit in a nice, reusable tin.

Each kit contains an eye mask, ear plugs, a facial cleansing towelette, pain reliever, electrolytes, and a breath strip — sounds perfect, right?

In the end, a hangover kit is a labour of love. It’s a little bundle of care and consideration that says, “We’ve been through it all together, and we’ve got your back, no matter how rough the morning may be.” Or, maybe it just screams you’ve drank too much, sort yourself out. Either way, go forth, party like there’s no tomorrow, and rest assured that when the dawn breaks, your hen squad will be armed with the ultimate hangover survival kit. Cheers, hens!
