      Fun and Nostalgic July 16, 2014

      I sent this gift to one of my good friends that I've known since we were both 4 years old back in 1969. She was very excited and she said her kids loved the candy and lunch box! Thank you for a wonderful gift idea!

      This is sure to Wow! March 17, 2014

      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

      Exceptionally Amazing February 20, 2014

      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!

      Excellent Service! June 17, 2013

      This item was shipped directly to my daughter in CA. She received it in a timely manner and was pleased with the presentation. I did not see it, but feel that Gift Tree deserves a triple A+!

      Awesome!! 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!
