I like the cut out for lifting the lids. I’m sure they were well received.

Lovely little boxes. Nice clean, unique and functional design. One of the nicest little gift boxes I’ve seen in quite while.

Not usually an oak person but these look great! Good contrast between the woods and I really like the finishing touch of the natural tie around them.
