I present to you, a present.

Or, er, well, it’s a potential present. Or a present you can give someone as a present. Which is really a present in and of itself isn’t it? I think so too.

I’m at an age where getting presents for people isn’t as easy as it used to be. It’s arguably just as fun some of the time – gone are the days of limited too sparky jeans and beanie babies, here are the days of home goods and spa treatments. I always say, when in doubt, go to the anthropologie home section and buy something. Anything. And if they don’t like them, it’s them not you.

butttt it can also be challenging because for the most part, we’re grown-ups, and can buy most anything we need by ourselves. And we’ve developed very specific tastes – when it comes to things like home goods (<— hypocrite right there, yep).

The grand news is I have the thing that will solve this problem for all of eternity. Enter: cocktail courier.

Peapod (who you know I love and adore) partnered with them to deliver these little gifts to Peapod customers, and when they reached out i was like – HOW HAVE I NOT KNOWN ABOUT THIS. I AM SO NEGLECTED.

And then this little gem showed up at my door and it felt like Christmas morning. I mean, HOW GENIUS IS THIS. I have been on  a real French 75 kick and they sent me all the fixings to make them in my own little humble abode. Complete with a recipe card and cute packaging.

I feel like it’s a good birthday gift or its one of those great ideas to send in lieu of flowers when someone is having a blue day. who wouldn’t want to come home to everything they need to make their favorite craft cocktail?

You can even sign someone up for a subscription so their supply never runs dry. I’m just sayin….you don’t need to worry about a gift receipt for me if this is coming my way.
