I recently sent this product as a gift to my niece. She received the gift card, but did not receive the gift message. As a result, she did not know who had sent the gift. This is not an isolated problem... Same issue has happened before when I have sent other products from Amazon as a gift. It has also happened to me as a gift recipient of an Amazon product. I would recommend Amazon review how it handles gift purchases and making certain that the gift message is obvious to the gift recipient. Otherwise, I have no complaints.
