Move over, Elf on the Shelf and Mensch on a Bench. There’s a new holiday craze in town that’s just for parents’ enjoyment.

Dena Blizzard, the comedian and mum behind “One Funny Mother,” has created Shiraz on the Shelf ― the perfect new tradition for wine-loving mums and dads.

Shiraz on the Shelf is a kit featuring a special wine glass and Christmas booklet that’s sure to resonate with “the harried, under-appreciated mums out there who might need a little help to survive the holidays.”

All parents have to do is place their Shiraz on the Shelf wine glass somewhere at night and by morning, a magical being will have filled it with much-needed wine to fuel their holiday shopping, decorating, gift-wrapping, cookie-baking and more. (The magical wine-filling part seems unlikely, but perhaps a truly magical spouse could do the morning pours.)

Blizzard, who achieved viral fame with her Chardonnay Go and Target videos, wrote the accompanying Shiraz on the Shelf booklet, which features a cheeky Christmas poem about a tired mum tasked with doing everything around the house to prepare for the holidays.

"T'was ten days 'til Christmas and all through the home, not a creature was stirring just a mom all alone."

"Everyone was fast asleep, they didn't care one bit. They knew Mom would stay up late and finish all this shit."

Of course, a magical fairy arrives to fill her wine glass each night and makes the holiday stress all the more bearable. 

The Shiraz on the Shelf gift kit is available on the One Funny Mother website for $29.99 (about £23). It’s available in the US, but can be shipped to the UK. 

As the press release notes, “Wine not included, but highly encouraged.”
