A fun night out is always better when you know you'll get a good night's sleep and feel wonderful the next day. As a result, the wedding hangover kit is becoming increasingly popular. The best approach to get hangover kits to guests is to deliver them to their hotel rooms before they arrive. They'll have them when they need them the most: right before bedtime and right after they get up.
What Is a Hangover Kit and How Does It Work?
A hangover kit is a guest favour bag containing the materials needed to transition from a wild night of drinking and indulgent cuisine to a pain-free start the next day.
"The fundamentals are some form of pain relief, something for an upset stomach, and something to enhance your immunity," says Jamie Kutchman Wynne, an artisan gift creator. "However, if you want to up the ante on your hangover kit, consider including silk sleep masks, pillow spray, lip balm, band-aids, fuzzy socks, a facial masque, and earplugs."
GET TO KNOW THE PROFESSIONAL
Marigold & Grey, founded by Jamie Kutchman Wynne, manufactures personalised and pre-packaged gift boxes and bags for weddings, birthdays, and other occasions. Google, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Kate Spade New York, Bloomingdales, Microsoft, and VISA are among the companies for which Marigold & Grey has made personalised presents.
Another great way to add your wedding branding or design is in hangover kits. "This way, the hangover kits match everything that visitors have seen, such as save-the-dates, invitation suites, and even the rest of the wedding welcome gifts," Wynne explains. "In cases when monograms aren't desired, a simple phrase like'relax and recharge' can be useful because it quickly informs guests about what they'll find inside."
