These were so nicely done. We did them for our church staff with our values on each side as a reminder on what we strive to be. We roll them like dice and focus on the value that shows.

Quality Gift

I ordered a few of these blocks for a department gift. Everything from the time I placed the order to when we received the blocks was great. Brittany was extremely helpful and reached out immediately with a proof to review. She worked with the production team, and they were able to produce & ship the product well before the deadline. The blocks are beautifully made, and you can tell a lot of care went into them. I will definitely be ordering from Smiling Tree in the future. Thank you!
