A friend brought this over for my daughter's birthday party. We enjoyed all the snacks at the party and used the insulated backpack the very next day when we all traveled to Knotts Bery Farm. It kept our drinks and lunch cool all day long!
I bought the gift for a shower and one for a wedding. The Bride and Groom had both been married before and had everything they needed, so the picnic basket was a complete and unusal surprise. They loved it. The Shower gift was for a young coupld who loved hiking and enjoying nature, and they were also happy with it--possibly taking it to Europe to enjoy their experiences there.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
