Parents of an Ohio high schooler gave a special Christmas gift to their son's teachers this year a bottle of wine with their son's face on the label. News of their unique gift has gone viral

- It's either a teacher's favorite gift or their worst nightmare.

Parents of one student in OH think they have the flawless gift for the teachers who spend hours with their child every day.

The boy's older brother, DJ Sommers, tweeted about his parents' gift idea, and the story went viral.

Taking to Twitter, DJ Sommer's explained that his parent's usually give his younger sibling's teachers something like candles or flowers to thank them for their hard work.

A couple from Dayton, Ohio chose to get their son's elementary school teachers a special Christmas gift this year. Inscribed on the label is the witty message "our child might be the reason you drink". 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.

But, this year his parents decided they needed something a little more substantial. By Thursday morning, he had more than 35,000 likes and more than 5,300 retweets.

"Best thing I've seen all day", wrote one person on Sommers' Twitter account.

Jake, who said that he is sometimes told by his teachers to "hush or be quiet", was not insulted by the wine gift.

"(The teachers) all thought it was hilarious", she said.
