I read the reviews and liked what I saw on the website, but, the reaction was even more than expected. My sister loves this gift from the metal lunch box to all the candies. What's more, in this day of sharing, she posted a picture and everyone is raving about this gift. Not sure how I am going to top this gift come next birthday. LOL

My wife LOVED this gift. She was especially amazed by the ribbon that had her name on it. I think the over the top surprise was the scissors though that came with the gift that I didn't know were coming. She can't stop talking about the cute scissors :-) Very nice WOW!!! We both use Gift Tree because it is an amazing company that goes above and beyond! Thank you!

KimAwesome!!May 25, 2012
The person who we bought this for is a total junk-food sugar junkie. We bought it as part of a group gift when he had surgery. He's not the typical "flowers and chocolate" person, and he always talks about "old-school" candy. This was the ultimate gift for him, and fits his personality perfectly!
