Nice gift, don't get the wrap
I bought this for a friend that is going through chemotherapy. The items itself are good however I paid $4.15 for the "luxury gift wrap" but I'm glad I got it sent to my house first as the gift wrap was cheap blue tissue paper with a cheap Christmas bow on top. I would have been so embarrassed had that gone directly to my friend that way! Skip the wrap if you purchase from here and wrap it yourself. Also the eye mask seems of cheap quality. Everything else was as presented and looks to be good quality.
I bought this hamper for a friend, the first one came within a few days but the second parcel of this order didn't come till after a week later which I wasn't aware of and bit disappointed as my friend has started their chemo the week of the first parcel arriving. Overall it is a fab pressie and has everything he needs to help him through his chemo
