Gifts for People Who Dream About Weekend Brunch All Week
If your loved one (or you) thinks about mimosas and Bloody Marys Monday through Friday, this list of gifts is from them (you).
Sometimes, dreaming about brunch is as much fun as actually eating brunch. And when you've got a case of the Mondays on a Wednesday (or Thursday or Friday), figuring out your weekend brunch plans may just be the mental vacation you need. These fun buys make great gifts for friends and family who love mimosas with their pancakes and screwdrivers with their bacon and eggs. Or if you're the one always calling up your gal pals on a Sunday morning, these happen to be a great way to treat yo self. Donna would approve.
Brunch Minimergency Kit
Sometimes, we're guilty of overdoing it on the endless biscuits, so if your brunch leaves the top button of your pants feeling squeezed, reach for a Brunchy Minimergency Kit. The adorable bag fits neatly in your handbag and includes antacid, a pants expander, stain remover, pain reliever, breath drops, dental floss, a hand-cleaning towelette, and a meal decision coin (for those morning when a decision is just a bit too difficult)! $14, pinchprovisions.com
For the friend who tags you in every Instagram photo posted by your favorite donut shop as a wink and a nudge that you need a donut date. This gift is a reminder of your shared loved for yeast, sugar, and sprinkles, but it comes with many fewer calories than the pastries themselves. $14, urbanoutfitters.com
