Our company gives employees gifts on 30, 40, 50,60 birthday's. This dream frame was perfect gift for a coworker that is saving for something special. Found a picture on internet of his dream goal and printed out for frame. He really likes it - although I haven't seen any money in it yet!

I like the fact that you can choose to put the coins in from two different slots and cover up the one you don't want to use. It would be nice if there were color choices, but the wood color is neutral enough for any decor. It does seem a little small for a coin bank that is supposed to hold enough change to get you what is pictured in the frame. Also, it seems a little delicate. Over all I am very happy with it.
Used this to motivate me to save money for a trip. I love it, but it was a little more than I wanted to spend on a frame box.
This was perfect for my 12 year old niece who is saving money for her own iPad. I placed a picture of an iPad and a gift card inside the box. She loved it! Very unique! Would like to see item in various sizes!
I thought this was a great idea for my boyfriend and I to save money to go on another trip. He really liked it but when I was puttin the picture in it came apart in a couple pieces. I just expected to slip in the picture but it made it from a 2 second thing to a 2 minute thing. Overall, besides the poor construction, it is a pretty good gift. I would recommend getting some sandpaper for the money slots though, they were pretty rough.
Great gift, giving this to my sister because she's saving up for her dream trip to Paris!
This was a five year anniversary present. It was made of wood (traditional 5 year material) and let me place a photo of us in Paris. We are planning on going back and the bank reminds us to save loose change for that trip. Like the photo idea and the bank looks great. The frame holds a 5x7 photo which is a nice display size. The color of the wood, overall construction, and price are cons. However I found the construction was neither poor nor great, so overall I'm happy with this unique gift.
I bought this gift for my wonderful girlfriend who has always wanted to go to New York, so I printed a picture of New York and put it in the frame. She loved it!

I ordered this gift for a friend's 25th birthday.[...]. I knew from the other reviews it would be small but didn't expect the cheapness of the pine wood or back screws! Was very disappointed as I have ordered from Uncommon Goods before and and really thought the quality was great. I probably could have cut & glued a few wood pieces together from the art supply store and it would have looked better.I called Uncommon Goods and they were amazing for customer service! [...]Overall probably only good as an ensemble gift or gag gift. I think it's way overpriced, even if it was marked down for half the price.

The concept of the picture frame is cute. I put a 5x7 picture in it, which fit perfectly and a few coins. Of course, it is more of a symbolic gesture rather than an object that can hold a large amount of money. I say this because the back of the frame pops off easily (the sliding screw which holds the back of the frame fell off right away).
