I bought this for an out of town relative, who had everything else that a new mother could want or need, and this was something that would outlast the flowers, casseroles and baby clothes. And since her baby had been given a very unusual name, finding any personalized item was going to be difficult. With this, she will always have something with her name on it and the clear glass fits any decor. The engraving was so well done, and people were impressed with the design. If you're not sure what to get...get this! They will have it always.
