Dad creates epic 50 metre drinking straw for daughter's birthday

A Belgium dad decided to create a gift for his daughter she isn't likely to forget in a hurry.

Peter Antwerp believes in giving his children experiences over presents for their birthdays and for his daughter's fifth, the family went to Spain - but that wasn't the surprise.

Secretly packing a bottle of his daughter's favourite drink, Antwerp had a plan to create a 50-metre-long drinking straw to accompany it.

While his daughter slept, Antwerp who is a graphic designer, constructed his creation so that it would finish just above her head.

Speaking to The Huffington Post, Antwerp said: "It made me realise that I like giving memories a lot more than ordinary presents."

Now his two other children are eagerly awaiting their 'presents'. He has certainly set the bar high.
