Dayton resident D.J. Sommers took to his Twitter account to note that his parents chose to give a different sort of Christmas gift to his younger brother's teachers this year.

An Ohio couple brought Christmas cheer to their son's teachers by gifting them bottles of wine bearing photos of "the reason you drink" - their son. Sommers wrote that his parents get his brother's teachers a gift every year but it's usually just a small candle or flower.

DJ's parents got the teacher bottles of wine, but the labels on the bottles were replaced with a photo of the student.

DJ's tweet has more than 36,000 likes and 5,700 retweets, as of Thursday evening.

Hopefully, the rest of her experience wasn't as eyebrow-raising as it must have been when she met with Princess Michael . The " Suits " actress was attending the Queen's annual Christmas lunch for the first time.


DJ's tweet quickly went viral and his mom, Mary, is the talk of the town; she told WHIO that her son isn't a bad kid but that he is "that kid". "But who doesn't need a glass of wine after teaching a kid like mine?" "(Jake) always has something to say.

It's clear the internet believes this was a gift worth giving - and receiving.

"(The teachers) all thought it was hilarious", she said. "They all thought it was really amusing", D.J. said.

"It was kind of more of a thanking the teachers for putting up with me and my sister and my brother", D.J. said of the gift.
