I would recommend this but I would warn them that it doesn't come with sheets. I know that is my bad, but I was looking at many different options with my daughter and when she finally chose what she wanted I did not take time to reread what came in the set. Much to my dismay there are no sheets. Again my bad, but I would prefer not to have had the European Shams and sheets instead.
This was a great package. Colors are true to pictures. Fabrics are very soft, especially the underside of the comforter which is important if it's going to touch your face. Fabrics are well made. decorative pillows are firm and not flimsy. My daughter is very happy with the choice and looks forward to hopping into bed at night.
