9-year-old has a sweet handmade present for his dad – his father’s reaction shocks him

9-year-old boy gives his dad a handmade present he spent a lot of time on... his father's reaction leaves tears in my eyes...


Parenting done right, we’d say!

It is every parent’s dream that their children grow into respected individuals but teaching them right from wrong.

A dad of a 9-year-old boy from Massachusetts can brag with his son’s thoughtfulness and creativity without any guilt. Why, you may wonder. Well, it is because this dad, Aaron Gouveia, received an incredible handmade gift by his boy Sam. He even posted a video of it on his TikTok account @daddyfiles which gathered over 13 million views in just three days time.

As Aaron explained, his son has been taking sewing classes for over a year inspired by his great-aunt Val to pick up the hobby.

“His great-aunt is [an] unbelievable seamstress. She sews everything. She’s been making us gifts our whole life and he thought that was so cool,” dad Aaron said in the interview. “So for the last few years, she has been showing him how to do things and it got to the point where he wanted to kick it up a notch.”

Sam has been learning the craft of sewing at a local store called the Franklin Mill Store and he has created many beautiful pieces so far, including cat pajama pants for his brother, several scrunchies, a dress for his cousin, a pillowcase and now a shirt, according to his father.

“I was so impressed and so flattered that he wanted to make it for me,” Aaron said.

“It’s really good. It’s definitely different. It looks very ’70s. It’s almost got a leisure suit lapel. But it fit and it was my style,” Aaron said of the special gift, the now-famous navy blue shirt with a beautiful intricate floral print with roses that everyone has already seen and heard about.

When he laid eyes on the special gift, Aaron said he tried it on right away and wore it for a special occasion already. Although he’s son is the only boy in the class, Aaron, who is the author of books titled “Raising Boys to Be Good Men” and “Men and Miscarriage,” makes sure he supports his wish of learning how to sew and encourages him to become even better at it.

“He’s the only boy there but he doesn’t care. That doesn’t stop him. He just loves it,” this proud dad told Good Morning America. “[Franklin Mill Store is] such a safe and educational space. We’re really grateful to them,” he added.

“He’s only 9 and he’s making these dresses and shirts and pants and pillowcases and scrunchies and things like that. It’s really amazing,” Aaron said of Sam.

In the past, another video of this family was also well-received and seen by a lot of people. When he turned 9, Sam received a sewing machine as a present, and it was a reaction worth sharing with the rest of the world.

“He doesn’t want his mother to feel left out, so now he’s working on a shirt for her too,” Aaron wrote. We hope he posts another video soon so that we can see what Sam will create for his mom.

What a beautiful family.

We wish Sam more success in the years to come and we are happy he does what he loves even though he’s just nine.
