We're very excited about our line of mango wood boxes in various sizes and shapes and the unique engraved creations we've created for each! For this square wooden box we've chosen an engraved Celtic cross for the lid with the famous "May the road rise to meet you" Irish blessing featured on top. The Irish are famous for their traditional blessings, and they are perfect to feature on a personlized gift for a loved friend or family member. The full text on the Irish blessing box reads, "May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rains fall upon your field. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand." Even with the small font size, the craftsmanship of the engraving is beautiful. Ancient Celtic knotwork decorates the cross. The name of your loved one personalizes beautifully in an Celtic-looking font on the front as shown. Natural mango wood has beautiful light to dark color variation with a rough hewn, distressed appearance, making it a distinctive and unique kind of wood. This is a one-of-a-kind custom Celtic gift exclusive to The Catholic Company and designed by our art department. This Irish blessing gift box stands alone as a thoughtful gift, or, get creative by adding other small gifts inside the box such as a patron saint medal and a rosary. Keep the Irish theme going by including a green rosary, Irish jewelry, or a St. Patrick or St. Brigid saint medal!

Nice overall quality, needs to be larger so the prayer is easier to read. I was not a 100% on the lettering for personalization as well, "D" did not necessarily look like a "D", I was told it was the font they used, reason I did not send back. The recipient enjoyed the gift though.
