When it comes to housewarming gifts, most think of a doomed potted plant or a Yankee Candle. A fondue pot might be #lifegoals. But if you’re the matriarch of a clan that is collectively worth nearly $750 million, no ephemeral flora or fromage fondue will suffice.

So it’s no shock that Kris Jenner took to Instagram on Monday to share a photo of a new toy, given to her in part by the power couple that is Chrissy Teigen and John Legend: her very own Moët & Chandon vending machine, in stylish black.

“When a forklift shows up at my house on Monday morning with a Champagne Vending Machine and an unlimited supply of @moetusa @moetchandon Champagne I am jumping for joy,” she wrote in the caption, showing her excitement with not one, but three exclamation points.

You know, you too would be using multiple exclamation points if somebody gave you “an unlimited supply” of champagne—whatever “unlimited” might mean.

The machine was a gift from two couples: Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend, and hairstylist Jen Atkin and her husband, the director and photographer Mike Rosenthal. According to Entertainment Tonight, it was given on the occasion of Jenner’s move.

And apparently the Mother of Kardashians wasted no time putting the machine to good use.

“I’m not gonna lie, [I am] a little drunk,” she added on Instagram.

Cheers, Kris; we’ll stop by later for a bottle.

?Moët & Chandon vending machines started popping up for the first time back in 2013, when the first one was installed in London's Selfridges department store. The machines hold up to 320 200-milliliter bottles of the French bubbly.
