DAYTON, Ohio – Instead of the traditional candle or mug, teachers at an Ohio school are getting wine this holiday season.

The unorthodox gift is taken one step further, sporting a boy’s picture on the bottle, according to a now-viral tweet.

DJ Sommers tweeted two photos of the bottles that show what appears to be his brother’s school picture and this line: “Our child might be the reason you drink, so enjoy this bottle on us.”

“My parents always get our elementary school teachers a present around Christmas, typically something small like a candle or flower to say, ‘thank you,’” Sommers wrote. “This year they got them bottles of wine and replaced the labels with their own with my brother on them. Happy holidays.”

The photos have been retweeted more than 5,000 times and liked more than 36,000 times.
