What could we possibly gift that could be memorable and cherished too? These questions plague the average gifter’s mind.

Well, the gift was special to such an extent that it made him emotional and moved him to tears. The wholesome video was shared on Reddit and it soon went viral. Take a look:
The video was shared in the sub-Reddit r/MadeMeSmile by user u/j5029, where it received 55.7k upvotes in a short span of time. In the short clip, we see the father unwrapping his gift box. He opens it to find a chopping board inside it. However, it wasn’t your usual wooden board as it had a special engraving on it. “I had his dad’s famous chilli recipe engraved on a cutting board for him in his dad’s handwriting. His dad passed away this year,” read the caption to the video.
