Hens Night Ideas

In New Zealand, a Bachelorette Party is most commonly known as a "Hens Night".  Do you have one coming up?  Planning can be a mission and the stakes are high when there are a lot of people in town keen for a good time.  Here's some ideas of things to do, give and buy from some research we did with our customers.
