When Dalton Ross left his home in Tennessee to study here in the UK he knew his mum would miss him.
So to soften the blow of their year apart, the student, who's currently studying at Westminster University, jokingly sent his mum a life-sized cardboard cutout of himself.
The 22-year-old posted photos of the cutout onto Imgur with the caption: "Jokingly sent my mom a cutout of myself while I'm studying abroad. She seems to be entertaining herself with it."
Speaking to indy100 Ross added: "After being here a month I just thought if my mom got a package from me that, when opened, was just a giant cutout of me with a goofy face.
"I didn't tell her I was sending anything, I just included a note that said 'You're welcome.'"
His mum certainly seems to be enjoying the gift. Check out some of the photos she's taken with it below:
