A mother in Australia got an early Christmas present and the surprise of her life when her two sons gave her a car. The brothers saved up money for 10 years so they could buy the mother who raised them the BMW that she always wanted.

Jason and Daniel Knust of Wollongong, Australia wanted to do something to show their gratitude for all the sacrifices their mom, Carol, made for them growing up. They remembered that she once mentioned wanting to own a BMW, and they always kept that in the back of their mind, hoping one day to fulfill that wish for her.

“Showing gratitude to our beautiful Mum who’s worked so hard to give us everything in life,” Daniel wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a video of the boys showing the car to their mom. “Compared to the sacrifices she has made for us over the years, this is nothing,”

“We got into quite a bit of mischief when we were younger, and she did a lot to keep us in line,” Daniel explains. “She worked two jobs to keep us in school, and so it was a way to say thank you for everything. One of the goals, for us, was to be able to repay her and look after her later in life.”

Carol was understandably shocked when her sons showed her the new car. As you can see in the video, she repeats the phrase, “No, you can’t do this,” quite a few times. She even tries to walk away a few times, in complete disbelief, but her sons make sure she stayed to look at the car until it started to sink in.

“I’ve wanted to do this for 10 years, and today a long term dream came true,” Daniel writes. “Hard work pays off, and that’s something our Mum taught us from a very young age that we’ll never forget.”

Jason and Daniel recognize the importance of sharing with others how thankful they are for them. “It doesn’t have to necessarily be a material gift, even just telling them you’re appreciative and grateful for them is pretty important,” Daniel said.

Of course, when you can give that person a present that expresses your feelings, that’s nice too, as Jason and Daniel’s mom just found out.
