Of all the things we LOVE about the holidays, there are a few things we could do without. Kids get a little bit out of their minds around this time of year. Stores are packed with frantic shoppers trying to score last minute gifts and deals. And of course, there's that dreaded elf. You know the one, right? Not Buddy, he's cool, and we've already watched his movie several times. We're talking about the Elf on the Shelf. What started as a sweet idea a few years ago has morphed into a competitive elf sport, with parents trying to one-up each other and make buckets of Christmas magic for their kids every single day of December. That's just so much to remember! And the pressure is intense. So maybe it's time for a little Elf on the Shelf-type fun, but adult-style. You need Shiraz on the Shelf this holiday season. We ALL need it.
You might remember Dena Blizzard of One Funny Mother from her viral videos about back-to-school shopping and Pokemon Go. Well, Dena is back, and this time she's got a fun game for parents during the holiday season. This is a real game you can buy from her website, and it sounds right up our alley.
Dena is selling the Shiraz on the Shelf package on her website, One Funny Mother. For $29.99, you get a designed wine glass and a book with an inappropriate Christmas poem and funny illustrations. You know how you have to remember to move or hide the elf every night? Well, with Shiraz on the Shelf, you get to move or hide your wine glass, too. So then you can find it the next day, probably at the end of the day because you would have forgotten where you hid it for most of the day, and suddenly you have an empty wine glass just begging to be filled after a long day.
Shiraz on the Shelf won't help you with any of your holiday duties, but on the bright side, it won't make a huge mess that you'll have to clean up in the morning. Wine not included, but that shouldn't be a problem, right? Pretty sure most of us have that well-stocked leading into the holiday season, anyway.
