This product looks amazing! It's MUCH more attractive than the less-expensive plastic ones out there. the look is highly enhanced by Christmas lights, which makes it even more stunning, and we also like it because it can be a year-round display. My newlywed son does glass-blowing and other glass creations as a hobby, and HE says it's awesome. And it is! For a gift like this, get the gift box too for a classy presentation!
