The musician, comedian and dad captioned his Tiktok with the reminder that: “Everyday is Christmas, kids!”
Racking up nearly 3 million views, he wrote over his video, ‘When kids say: “You never buy me anything.”
Rory began by putting a red bow on the families huge TV, no doubt about to be used to watch some classic Christmas films.
He put a bow by the heating monitor, which is oh so welcome in the cold winter months.
Then he threw rolls of wrapping paper and bows into his kids bedroom.
He even got down on the floor to put a red bow on their toilet.
Heading to the fridge, he put a green bow on the egg box before wrapping up all the kids food in the fridge in blue and silver paper.
He completed his point by pulling a sheet of wrapping paper around the house.
Now, once his kids see their lovely presents all wrapped they will be more than thankful for them all.
Many fellow parents found Rory’s Tiktok hilarious and a lesson worth sharing.
Another exhausted parent said:”Thank you somebody finally gets is also!!! The gift that keeps on giving!!”
“Jesus I never laugh so hard the house is the best,” as many other parents loved Rory’s subtle reminder to his kids.
It sparked ideas for many parents as some said they had sent it to their kids and that Rory had saved them a lot of money this Christmas, whilst another was encouraged to copy him, saying: “I’m ordering a million bows.”
Other things parents could add bows to in the home are toilet roll, pets, clothes, toys, car seats, backpacks, shoes and more.
“So true…every parent should do this.” Many agreed in the comments.
