Looking for some, ahem, interestingly-shaped straws or necklaces to embarrass your bride-to-be bestie? On the hunt for the perfect pink tiara and sash to make sure your engaged BFF stands out from the bar crowd? No need to fret — there are a ton of retailers in the Garden State where Jersey girls can stock up on all the naughty dice and fuzzy handcuffs for the big weekend before the big day.
A massive party supply outlet store, Party Box has nearly every product you could ever dream up for any bash. The stores shelves are packed to the gills with everything needed for the basics of entertaining (Need straws, cups, party beads and paper goods in a very specific shade of teal? Party Box has you covered.) What's more, the retailer does custom printing jobs for signage, and delivers dozens of balloons to anywhere in northern New Jersey, ensuring that any locale for your GNO will be decked out.
Whether you're on the hunt for a bride-to-be garter belt, or a phallic-shaped cake pan (yes, really) Romantic Depot is an easy stop when you want your party to be a bit more Rated R than PG-13. Though the adult party store, which has three locations in New Jersey, specializes in more grown-up fare like vibrators and sex toys, the company also has glow sticks, shot glass necklaces and bachelorette party "caution" tape for your fête. Grab a blow up hunk, a pack of pecker whistles and some inappropriately shaped candy for gift bags, and while you're at it, pick up something for yourself. (We won't tell — and you have to deal with the stress of being a bridesmaid somehow, girl.)
Fantasy Gifts NJ
Fantasy Gifts is an excellent place to shop if you're looking for more than just the classic bachelorette party staples — though the store has those, too. There are only so many places where you can get a penis-shaped piñata — and Fantasy Gifts is one of them. (And really, there are only so many times when buying one is acceptable.) If you're looking for games that are slightly more Instagram-friendly, at the company's two New Jersey locations, you can also find a bachelorette party charades kit, complete with a sand timer and dares to get the party started.
My Pure Pleasure
This isn't your mama's Tupperware party. My Pure Pleasure allows you to host a "pleasure party" right in your home, where a company representative will walk you through any questions you may have about the countless number of vibes and other sex toys the company sells. Work with your consultant before the bachelorette bash to buy all the name tags, sashes and gift sets you need to make sure your engaged friend is tickled pink at her party, or scratch the bar brawl and just have an in-house bash where the entire guest list can shop for exactly what they want instead!
