Save Your Breath | BACtrack C8 Breathalyzer
We know you’re far too responsible a man to over-indulge during spring break. But if you buckle under the peer pressure to tie a few on, you need to know your limits and stay off the road. The BACtrack C8 Breathalyzer fits in your pocket or carrying bag. It gives you near-instant results on a legible screen. It also gives you an estimate of when you’ll be sober again. With the connected smartphone app, you can track your drinking history or call an Uber if you’re too soused.
Make Your Mark | Solo Cup Holder
Nothing grinds a spring break party to a halt like unmarked plastic cups. It only takes one accidental pick-up of someone else’s drink for feelings to get hurt. But who has the foresight to bring permanent markers to a party for claiming a plastic cup? Prevent utter disaster with this wood party cup holder. It comes with a felt-tip marker in its own slot. It also comes with the inspirational message “Mark Your Cup and Drink Up!” right on the front in case guests forget what they’re doing.
Skål, Immortal Drinkers! | Hammer of Thor Shaped Bottle Opener
Now you too can open up spring break beverages the same way the Norse gods do. The Hammer of Thor is a powerful, unrepentant bottle opener. It’s over 6 inches of raw, metallic power. It brutally opens beer bottles as if they were scared little trolls. It opens wine bottles like weak woodland creatures. It mauls bottle caps with the force of a Ragnarök thunderbolt. It also comes with a dainty chain for hanging and is easy to store.

When a Straw’s Not Enough | Beer Bong Funnel with Valve
We do not condone the use of beer bongs. They’re irresponsible at best, dangerous at worst. They impair your judgment and sap what little dignity you have left. But if you must have one, this is the one to get! It’s got double-tube construction so two people can make regrettable decisions at once. It has 2.5′ long tubes, sturdy valves, and rubber seal rings to prevent leaking. The funnel can handle up to 60 fluid ounces — that’s 5 cans of beer at once. Or, you know, sparkling water.
