I bought this as a gift for my aunt. She was totally thrilled when she received it. She said the packing of it was great and arrived in perfect shape. I sent this as a gift, but did not have an opportunity to send a greeting before I ended my order with Overstock. My aunt had no idea who sent her the gift. I will suggest that if you order something to send as a gift, be sure to check with the recipient to make sure they receive the gift, and to let them know you sent the gift.
