Whether you're going out or staying in this New Year's, TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas has a buzz-worthy find for you.

Family fun

Who says you have to get dressed up and go out to enjoy New Year's Eve?  One of the best ways to welcome 2012 is to kick back and have fun with the family, and what better way than with a personalized Monopoly set? Photo-opoly allows you to slip in your own photographs for customized playing pieces, and name buildings after locales that are close to your heart.  The perfect way to gather the family, reminisce and celebrate. ($30; photojojo.com)

Hangover help

For those who do plan to ring in the New Year with a little (or a lot) of bubbly, you may want to take note of a new FDA-regulated over-the-counter drug. "Blowfish" tablets contain a powerful dose of caffeine and aspirin, which have been recognized as effective hangover remedies. If you plan to be in NYC for the big night, the pills can be delivered to your door within an hour; they can also be purchased online and will be in stores nationwide next year. ($11.99 & up; forhangovers.com)

Impulse protection

Last but not least, New Year's can bring out the emotional side in all of us.  And for those who may find themselves tempted to call an ex, leave a weepy voicemail, or even make impulsive purchases (ab roller, convection cooker), there's finally a "Don't Dial" App for your smartphone!  For just $0.99, you can make certain numbers off limits to yourself for the evening so you can revel in relative safety. ($0.99; dontdial.com)
