Bride Opens Gift From Mother-in-Law Containing Secret to Her Son’s Happiness

Exclusive to Happily

A bride opens a heartfelt gift from her mother-in-law containing the ‘secret to her son’s happiness’ – and discovers a mirror showing her reflection.


During her bridal shower ahead of her wedding to Blade Deaver, Maria was opening gifts from loved ones when her new mother-in-law Lori Deaver handed her a present.

Maria, reading the gift card, says: “This gift contains the secret to Blade’s happiness…” before replying, “I thought I was his happiness, but that’s okay…” to laughs in the room.

She continues: “When you open it, you’ll see everything he’ll ever need and if you give him 100% of what you see, I know he will be happy for the rest of his life.

“Love, the OG Mrs. Deaver – P.S. I loved him first.”

Maria then tells Lori she’s happy to share as she opens the gift – sitting back in surprise at the heartwarming gift before showing the mirror to ‘awws’ from family and friends around her.


After taking in the sweet surprise in Ocean Gate, New Jersey, she adds: “I’m like, what else can make him happier except food, his truck, and me?!”

Speaking of the moment, Lori said: “I wanted to give Maria something with meaning, besides the ordinary gifts I gave her like luggage, some money and cute beach wear for the honeymoon.

“To let her know how much we love her and how happy we are she was becoming part of our family.

“I chose this gift after months of trying to think of something that would convey how I felt about her in a cute and unique way, and everything said in the note was 100%.


“At the end of the video, you can hear the mother of the bride, Eileen, say “that’s a great gift” and I know she feels the same love for my son that I feel for her daughter.”
