This is a nice gift, especially when you personalize it with engraving. It is small and light-weight, which may make it "feel" inexpensive, but that also makes it great for packing and traveling. The ability to insert a photo is great and having 2 time zones available is a nice feature. We gave one to someone who has used it already for global travel and she really likes the alarm clock feature so she doesn't have to leave her iPhone on all night. Great service from EGS, too! Thank you!
