Worried Her Son Was Driving Them To Drink, A Mother Gave His Teacher The Perfect Wino Present

Mary Sommers, mother to son 14-year-old Jake, has hands-down won the award for Most Cleverly Savage Christmas Gift this year. She described Jake to her local TV station as being “that kid…who always has something to say” and wanted to thank his teachers who have dealt with him by giving both a thoughtful and hilarious present.

Sommers, with the help of her husband Paul and a printing company run by a family friend, created special labels to put on bottles of Chardonnay with a smiling picture of Jake, reading below “Our child might be the reason you drink, so enjoy this bottle on us.”

The gifts had the entire Internet LOL-ing after Jake’s older brother DJ tweeted pictures of Mary’s elaborate creation, which has since been retweeted almost 10,000 times.

She told Buzzfeed that “none of the teachers were shocked by it”, citing that they all deserved the wine after putting up with Jake, who she has termed the “school clown”. Jake himself agrees with his title, and even delivered the wine bottles, which he found funny, to his teachers himself.

What do you think of Mary’s gift? Too far, or just another example of parents proving that they too still have a few tricks up their sleeves? I think it’s safe to say that either way, we all could go for some Chardonnay whenever someone starts to get on our nerves. 

Hey, I'm Casey! I'm a third year student at the University of Virginia studying Global Security and Justice with a minor in French. At school, I'm involved in many clubs, volunteer programs, and my sorority. I love reading novels, trying new healthy recipes and workouts, and long distance running almost as much as I love nachos, any dessert involving peanut butter, and laying in bed wasting my time on Pinterest and bingeing House of Cards on Netflix. I'm also arguably the world's biggest Harry Potter fan, and have been known to watch all 8 movies in the span of one day. If you also enjoy debating whether Harry should have ended up with Hermione instead of Ginny or watching Facebook food videos for hours on end, we should be best friends immediately.
