She ABSOLUTELY loved it. It’s shiny and the pearl is beautiful. She was able to put it on all by herself, so it’s not complicated. The note on the box made her tear up. Very thoughtful and sentimental. Definitely would recommend it as a gift.

She was so pleased and touched by how beautiful and special this bracelet is and it looks so perfect on her wrist. When she realized it was her daughter’s handwriting, she got very emotional and said, “oh my gosh, I’ll always have a piece of her with me”. I have one of these for my own daughter who just passed away from the same horrible disease and I love it as well. This is such a wonderful tribute to honor anyone you love. Great craftsmanship and quality. Thank you so much!

She already had a reusable straw, but it wouldn’t fit easily inside her purse, which made it hard for her to take it with her to different places. These were perfect for her! They fit easily inside her purse because they retract, as well as come with a case that she can put inside- or even hang them on the outside- of her purse. We love these straws!

I filled the enclosed cups with an olive mixture and another with small prepared red peppers. On the additional boards, I had a variety of fruits and another with vegetable slices and dip. The enclosed cheese knives, appetizer forks, and picks were great to help people serve themselves. I had a lot of compliments on the beautiful spread and the beautiful presentation. The only problem is that the board is very heavy (over ten pounds empty). My husband carried the board.

There is even an exterior pocket, covered by the flap, for easy access to my phone, gum, etc. without having to unzip the large area. The strap is completely adjustable too, which is great because I am only 5′ tall. The material seems durable and looks professional. I highly recommend this bag.

It fits a little loose up top, but just right on my hips. I love the length (I don’t mind my legs getting wet). Zippered pockets are mesh for ventilation. Hood folds in and out of the collar (which is nice). I’m loving my jacket so far. Now for the rain to come back.
