    I am excited to get this engraved and give it to my husband on our 5 year wedding anniversary. I ordered the keychain, one for each of us from Sandals Ocho Rios where we were married. I hope he enjoys this and it helps him remember our special wedding day.

      The keychain was perfect. The sand was obviously from the beach I selected. It was the perfect gift for my homesick friend and now he can take a little bit of home with him wherever he goes.

      Service and delivery comments:

      It was a lengthy wait, which I expected since it was a custom item.

              Exactly as pictured, comes with a blurb about the product and sand. And it looks awesome!!! I think my father will really like it, it came too late to give him for Christmas like I planned (definitely give it 2 weeks to ship). I really like how this is something different and unique to bring back an experience.

                Wonderful way to remember a honeymoon location. And the selection of beaches to choose from online made it the perfect gift. I bet almost everyone has been to at least ONE of the beaches offered. The choices of 'sand holders' was large enough to find something for everyone you your gift list.
