Buying your mother a birthday present can be a very difficult task.

What do you get for a woman who doesn't need anything?!

Well, one man has put us all to shame - by making his mom cry because of the sheer greatness of the gift in question.

You see, Mike's mom is a huge Seattle Seahawks fan; and after her favourite team reached the 2014 Super Bowl, there was only one present on Mike's mind.

Yep, he brought them both tickets to watch the biggest match of the NFL calendar, which takes place this Sunday.

Mike and his mom will be one of the thousands of spectators inside the MetLife Stadium for the eagerly-awaited clash between the Seahawks and the Denver Broncos.

Needless to say, his mom - who was forced to miss the 1984 play-off game because she was pregnant with Mike - was lost for words, and even shed a few tears.

"Thirty years after she skipped their welcome home for my sake, I was able to return the favour in the biggest way I could ever think of," Mike wrote on YouTube. "I'm excited to go see the game, but there was nothing more meaningful than to see my mom's reaction that I've shared in the video."
