    Comments about HAPPY LIFE BOX:

    I also purchased the "bag of cheer" which fit nicely into the box which I had engraved for my son & his fiance for their wedding. I actually ended up ordering another for my other son & daughter-in-law who were married earlier this year. The box is not too feminine & not too masculine so I felt comfortable giving it to them as a couple.

          Could not pass on the saying. Box was just way too small.

          Very happy with this. I just received today to give for my boyfriend's birthday. Working lots of hours lately so thought this box was a nice message on what's important. I bought the love tokens from this site too and if anyone's curious, they fit perfectly in the box!! I can't wait to see his expression.

          Comments about HAPPY LIFE BOX:

          I love this box and the quote that is on the front of it. However, I should have looked at the specifications a little more closely. I thought the box was going to be a bit bigger than it actually is. The image on the website is larger than the box actually is.

              I have not actually seen the product as it was a gift sent to someone in another town thus the 4 star rating. However, if the service I received is any indication, I'm sure it is a great product!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Service was terrific, item shipped very promptly and was delivered a day earlier than originally scheduled.

                Bought this as a gift for the director. The engraved sentiment is Great! However, I skipped over the description of "tiny pewter box". It is tiny. Maybe could be used as a pillbox? I loved the engraved sentiment so much I got carried away and forgot the "tiny" part. With her favorite candy gift card, it made a very nice gift.

                  Comments about HAPPY LIFE BOX:

                  It is a small box, perfectly matches the saying on the lid. The lid isn't snug, it just kind of sits atop the box, so it's nice for small pieces of jewelry or a paperweight, etc.
