There are simply so many reasons to honor the role of a mother in a person’s life, from giving birth to their children to assisting them in becoming the best versions of themselves. So, it would be an understatement to argue that mothers should only receive the best. They merit the entire planet. And what better way to show someone you appreciate them than by giving them a gift they will cherish forever?
In 2016, Australian brothers Daniel and Jason Knust surprised their mother with a BMW 3 Series as the greatest Christmas present they could come up with.
Daniel posted a video of the gift opening on Instagram, showing how they gave their mother an automobile that was wrapped in a big red ribbon and placed in the garage. Their mother first hesitated to accept the car and could only say “No,” appearing surprised by the gift. She eventually climbed inside the vehicle as Jason attempted to drag her there.
No amount of money, according to Daniel, could make up for the sacrifices their mother made in order to provide them with the finest possible life.
“Saying thank you to our lovely mother, who has worked so hard to provide for our every need. This is nothing in comparison to the sacrifices mother has made for us over the years, he said in the caption of his post.
Daniel continued, “And it was something they’d wanted to do for a while. It’s their way of showing their appreciation to their mom.”
“A small something to let her know how much Jason and I appreciate everything she’s done for us. For the past ten years, I’ve wanted to accomplish this, and today my long-held ambition came true,” Daniel remarked.
Daniel said, “Hard work pays off, and it’s something our Mum taught us from a very young age that we’ll never forget,” as one of the best lessons their mother ever taught them.
In an interview with TODAY, Daniel explained how his mother, who had always desired a BMW for herself, prompted them to give her the best Christmas present ever.
“My mother originally mentioned that she wanted a BMW approximately ten years ago, and we never forgot that,” he remarked. We promised to purchase her one someday, and we had been accumulating money for it.
For five years, the two brothers put money aside. We save aside some money each week in anticipation of being able to purchase the car one day, he continued.
Evidently, their mother managed everything on her own while filling in for both their parents while they were little.
In order to keep my brother and I in school and provide for all of our needs, she raised us on her alone and worked two jobs for the most of our lives, according to Daniel. “On a Friday, we saw her leave her full-time job, return home, take a shower, start a new job, and work the weekend at a restaurant.”
We simply felt it would be wonderful to express our gratitude for everything, he continued. Daniel described his mother’s response to their surprise as “just being incredibly astonished and couldn’t believe it.” She adored it to the fullest.
