This gift for my husband delighted him. Its beautifully made, a substantial size and such a great value for the price. It came gift-wrapped and ready to go. Very happy with this purchase
You just cant believe how soft these gloves are! I bought a pair for myself as well as for a gift for my sister when I saw them on the website, and am I ever glad I did. I wouldve kicked myself for not doing so after seeing them. They are warm without being bulky, and as I said, they feel so nice! The price was very reasonable too, considering they were make with 100% alpaca wool. I love them!
I purchased these earrings for my mom as a Christmas present and she loved them. Great color and the perfect size. Highly recommend them to anyone who loves different earrings.
