Perfect W(h)ine Pairings

Recommendations for the perfect bottle (or box) to ease parenting stress.

Wine may be the unofficial drink of motherhood, but which wine pairs best with the salty tears of a hormonal preteen or a toddler’s grocery store meltdown? W(h)ine: 50 Perfect Wines to Pair with Your Child’s Rotten Behavior by Jennifer Todryk, the mom behind the Life as a Rambling Redhead blog, cleverly and hilariously answers that question. Like a sort of sommelier of sarcasm, Todryk pours out her humorous recommendations for the perfect bottle (or box) to ease parenting stress and help us laugh off the messy moments of parenthood.

Each wine in the book also comes with a sticker, so you can track the wines (and behaviors) you”ve sampled by adding the sticker to the Periodic Table of W(h)ine that folds out of the book. It’s a full-bodied gift for your wine-loving mom or dad friends.
