This is just what I wanted. It was a little more than i wanted to pay, I think 30$ for a photo album is a little intense. But I was very impressed when I saw it. When I designed my personalization online it came out looking exactly like what showed up, so what you see is what you get. The wood is thick, smooth and very nice quality. Very impressed. I bought this specifically for my fiance who will be graduating basic training in December, so I am planning to fill it with photos of the event. I think this is a great gift for any age or gender and definitely worth the money. I don't have a single complaint, and that is rare for me. High highly recommended, the quality is amazing.
