Aerie Fuzzy Sherpa Robe

On days my brain is feeling a little fuzzy, I find it helps to wear clothes to match. One of the best hangover helpers, in my experience, is to spend the whole day cuddled up in cozy pieces, like this incredibly luxurious robe from Aerie. It's made with soft faux sherpa, and is "literally softer than my cat," according to one Aerie reviewer. "I want to be married and buried in this robe!"

The Plug Hangover Drink

With its magical (read: science-backed) combination of 13 natural herbs, sipping on this drink before, during, or up to two hours after drinking alcohol can actually prevent your hangover altogether. I know it sounds too good to be true — but trust me, I've tried it. One night I drank an entire bottle of wine (oops!), chugged the surprisingly good-tasting Plug Hangover Drink after, and woke up the next morning with neither a headache nor dizziness. It was so good, I'm singing its praises to the world.

Nicetown Thermal Insulated Blackout Curtains

I've found that as I've grown older, I've become less and less tolerant of the sun when I'm feeling tired from the night before. So in order to let myself rest up and hibernate my hangover away, I make sure and remember to close my blackout curtains before I go to sleep. I love this option from Amazon because they come in a wide variety of sizes and colors, but without a steep price tag.

Disney+ Membership

There's nothing better than cuddling up with some binge-worthy TV shows and movies on days you're not feeling so hot. I love watching old favorites that I can practically recite every word to, because it won't matter so much when I inevitably doze off during the program. That's what makes Disney+ so amazing: It's stocked with all your old childhood faves, plus some new must-watches, and even includes a Hulu and ESPN subscription with the higher-tier package. The only issue is deciding what to watch.

Snack Chest Variety Pack

If there's one upside to a hangover, it's the perfectly reasonable excuse to eat as much junk food as you want. I love stocking variety packs of snacks around the house, because I never know just what my hungover self will be craving (but it almost always includes Cheez-Its). This box of 50 snacks includes old favorites and some fun newer options, too.

Hydro Flask Water Bottle

When you're hungover, your body is in desperate need of rehydration and replenishment, and water is often the simplest cure. That's why I love filling up my Hydro Flask and keeping it by my bed for when I inevitably wake up parched in the middle of the night. Its pro-grade stainless steel and double-wall vacuum insulation means your water will stay icy cold, so you'll always get that refreshing sip when you need it most.
