This Mom Stashed Her Son's Youth in a Clear Lamp for a Wedding Gift

This clear lamp, owned by redditor justgrant2009, is the ultimate form of nostalgia. It was gifted to him by his mother and includes an eclectic mix of things from his childhood.

The project by his mom has been a very long work in progress. It was achieved by collecting items from her son's pockets and keeping them every time she did his laundry. Over the years the items amassed and filled the base of the clear lamp.

This project would certainly fill justgrant2009 with all kinds of memories and resolved answers to where all his stuff went. I think the idea is incredibly elaborate and brilliant, but if my mom did this, I would definitely be tempted to give her a hard time for hiding my stuff.
