Forget Elf on the Shelf this Christmas, let us introduce you to “Shiraz on the Shelf”.

Dena Blizzard of the Off Broadway show One Funny Mother has recently created Shiraz On the Shelf, an adult-friendly twist on the popular tradition where parents repeatedly hide an elf around the house that “watches over” their kids so they’re good for Santa.

The Shiraz on the Shelf sells for $29.99 and includes a wine glass and “the most perfect Christmas poem ever.”

“It doesn’t matter if mums are good or bad, Shiraz on the Shelf is always there in the morning,” Blizzard says in the hilarious promo video.

“Shiraz on the Shelf is really never hidden. It’s left in the open for a drunk lady to find.”

The promo reads:

“Are you tired of the Elf on the Shelf? Try this new Christmas WINE Tradition.

“Place your Shiraz on the Shelf glass out each night so it can be filled with wine by morning, making the holidays bearable.

“This perfectly packaged gift set includes a designed wine glass and hilarious illustrated booklet with your new favorite inappropriate Christmas poem.

“Shiraz on the Shelf is an ideal gift for everyone on your list, but especially the harried, under-appreciated moms out there who might need a little help to survive the holidays.”

*Wine not included, but highly encouraged.”

  • Im sure some people will hate this idea , saying it encourages drinking… but i see it as a funny gift idea That is a bit of a giggle


  • Hehe very clever love this idea


  • This is perfect for our house – my boys missed the elf on a shelf but they would want us to enjoy this new version (and they’ll be joining us in a couple of years!)


  • This would be a great gift. Except most of my friends are either pregnant or breastfeeding… still there’s always next yr!


  • I’m not a wine fan but I know of many who would love this.


  • Love it!!!


  • I have a few friends who could get into this.


  • Maybe the wine isn’t included because many shops that would sell this would not have liquor licenses an cost too much to justify. It would probably have to be locked up too.


  • Haha funny! I hate the elf on a shelf would much prefer one of these


  • I missed Elf on the Shelf, I assume it’s a book?
