21-year-old Tyler Brooks has been with his girlfriend Kai Hawkins for four years.
Rather than get his beloved a tried and tested bunch of flowers he tried something different instead.
Knowing that Kai was into skin and hair care he purchased her a huge aloe vera leaf so that she could grow her own plant.
Tyler tweeted a picture of his unique and creative gift and it soon went viral.
