The holidays might be over, but one little boy just got the best Christmas present ever. His family captured the moment on video and you’ll need to grab a big box of tissues first before you press play.

A recent Twitter video has received plenty of holiday attention. The now-viral post features a little boy named Xander opening a mega-sized—your might even say man-sized—present. Did we give too much away already?

In the sweet video, young Xander gingerly unwraps his gift—and then it gets so much better. With his family cheering him on, Xander continues to remove the wrapping paper. And then he gets to the front of the box. Something—rather, someone—moves. It’s his dad!

Xander’s dad, who is in the military, pops out of the box—and what happens next is pure magic. The sweet hug between the two will make just about anyone cry. This is one Christmas gift that Xander, and the rest of us who are watching, won’t soon forget!
