Did you get gifts for your child's teachers when they were in school? Many families opt for homemade candy recipes or something even simpler, like a gorgeous bouquet of holiday flowers. There's not usually a ton of creativity behind these gifts because, after all, it's the thought that counts. It's a common tradition in many families to say thanks to those who help them out throughout the year, especially teachers, but one family in Ohio just won Christmas this year.
Posted on Twitter on December 18, user DJ Sommers shared his parents' gifts for his brother's teachers this year, and it just about broke the internet.
Here's what he had to say on Twitter.
My parents always get our elementary school teachers a present around Christmas. Typically something small like a candle or flower to say thank you. This year they got them bottles of wine & replaced the labels with their own with my brother on them... Happy holidays
You have to give the parents credit for their humor and honesty! While you could go the typical route for teacher gifts, it just goes to show you that going the extra mile just makes everyone smile.
How does DJ's brother feel about this gift? We can only hope he finds the humor in it, too. And we like the parents' idea, too because who wants another coffee mug when you can have a bottle of wine. Have you ever considered doing something this special for your child's teachers?
