Navy daughter gifts her mom with ‘mirror surprise’ on Christmas Eve

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — What’s the best gift the mother of a military service member could receive? Having their child come home safely from being on duty, of course. That gift can come in a lot of different packages– and social media’s personal favorite is delivery with the element of surprise!

Twitter user @cheeyannahh, a member of the U.S. Navy, posted this video on Christmas Eve of her surprising her mother:

In the video, her mom stands up and opens a gift-wrapped mirror being held up in front of her. It takes her a moment, but she eventually notices the reflection of her daughter standing behind her.
