Real Talk: I don't understand a single thing about football, but I love watching the Super Bowl every year. It's an amazing excuse to meet up with friends and eat greasy appetizers, drink and laugh at those epic commercials. You definitely don't need to root for a team to have a good time.

In fact, all you really need are the right supplies — which is where I come in. I've used my years of party-going experience to put together a list of the best gear, from the handy to the hilarious. Whether you're cheering on the Chiefs, betting on the 49ers or just here for the commercials and food (Hi, me too), I guarantee you'll find something you didn't know you needed. Keep scrolling to start shopping.
