This has to be the dream Christmas present for anyone who was a youngster in the 1990's.

An incredibly thoughtful brother combed the Internet to source various toys, books, sweets and clothes that represented he and his sister's childhood in the 1990's.

"My older sister took care of me as a kid while our dad worked, so for Christmas I want to give her something special. Something that’d remind her of her 90s childhood before I became her responsibility and hell-raiser of a little brother."

He divided the treasure trove into 5 distinct categories : snacks, entertainment, clothing, toys and school supplies.

Speaking to Buzzfeed Steve said he sourced all the items from eBay and a site called Nostalgia Chest.

He hopes the gift will bring back good memories of their childhood together:

"We still have a ton of more good memories to make with each other, but childhood is just a really special time, so hopefully we’ll reminisce over some eggnog," he said.

What a thoughtful sibling.
