Buying a special gift for your mom for her birthday can seem like an impossible task.
So, on the occasion of his parents’ 50th birthday, TikTok user @cairoaibangbee decided to donate the money.
The viral clip begins with the mom sitting around the table finishing breakfast with her kids.
She is then given a final gift, which leads her to say: “You have so much for me girls, I feel so blessed.
As the mother begins to open her expensive gift, she jokes, “For god’s sake, how many boxes.”
Then she finally arrives at the last box to reveal that her kids bought her designer Christian Louboutin heels from Net-a-Porter.
As soon as mom sees the designer branded box, she screams with excitement.
Stunned by this extravagant gift, Mom repeats the words “oh my god” just before the last unwrapping.
One of the mothers’ children comments: “Let’s see if you like them first”.
However, the mood changes quickly when the lid of the box opens to reveal what’s inside.
The mother goes into the box to remove one of the designer shoes and says outright “No”.
Once again, one of her daughters asks her if she likes them.
And the mom repeats her brutally honest answer… “No”.
After the initial excitement of unboxing, the mother looks at the red bottom heeled shoe again and says it is “awful.”
The hilarious clip, which has been viewed over 3.3 million times, ends with the mom saying, “They’re fine but they’re not me, I’m so sorry.”
TikTok users took to the comments to praise their mom for her very direct approach.
One user said, “Legit, your mother is my spirit animal! I love his honesty “
Another netizen added: “I would have lied but I respect his honesty”
Even the pop star Anne-Marie commented: “I want to be part of your family”
As the saying goes, honesty is the best policy, but thank goodness they kept the receipt for the gift.
