A few months ago you may remember my post talking about Push Gifts for new Mommas. Back when I had Jake, my husband and I exchanged gifts. With Olivia arriving this past September, our exchange was similar. Hot new handbag for me, and a gift for him. And his gift was a little bit better, a little bit bigger, and a lot more personal this time. Full disclosure- I was a completely miserable preggo lady this time around, and boy did my Husband work his butt off keeping things from turning into an apocalyptic volcanic blowup on a weekly basis. Here is what I came up with for the family peacekeeper: A bottle of wine for major baby life events- to be opened after the event takes place!
1.) Our First Date Night Post Baby= A bottle of really good (read- $$$) red wine.
2.) Running our first 5K= A bottle of Skinny Girl cosmopolitan.
3.) Our First Pizza Friday Family Night= A bottle of red.
4.) The First Night we get Lucky= A bottle of “Naked Grape” Pinot Grigio (*wink wink*).
5.) Our First Weekend Away= A bottle of white.
6.) The First Night Olivia Sleeps Through the Night= A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE.
See a trend here?! Lots of fun wine with fun themes! And after nine months sans wine, I get to partake in sharing this gift, too. This is also a great gift idea for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and other life events when you want to get a little creative.
Look- even babies LOVE selfies!
