Anyone ever done it as a gift?

I was going to, but then shipping ended up being the same cost as the product (well, $16.99 + $16 shipping for a 6-pack)



Is it worth it?
I'm having trouble justifying that shipment cost to myself.

Hubby loves Jones Apple...was going to do this for him last Christmas and couldn't justify the amount. Last year it was $17 + $18 for shipping. If you've got the money to spare and think the person will REALLY appreciate it then do it, if not...don't waste your money.

He's not really a jones soda lover, he's just a "personalized gift" liker, haha.
I mean, in total, $32 is reasonable, but it's just...THAT much for SHIPPING!?

For that price, I'd buy a 6-pack of Jones and do the labels myself.

Shipping prices are ridiculous. I went to order 'Battle Shots' and the game was 30 dollars, which I found I guess... reasonable..(lol), but then shipping was 30.00 as well... so I decided against it. :x

I was thinking about it, like, just making it myself-- but, he wouldn't really care about the jones soda, ha, just the bottles.



Ugggh, it's impossible to find gifts for him, cos he's the type that the SECOND he wants something, he goes online 'n buys it.
So far...we've made/ordered just a calendar with the kids photos, etc :( kinda boring.

I catered a wedding where every guest had one at their table. lets just say by the end of the night more than half were just left sitting at the tables unused.



HUGE waste of money in my opinion

Lol your dude and my dude are exactly alike. I'm having to go and have a gift made for him because anything you can buy in a store, he either has, buys, or will get somebody to buy it for him the moment he sees it. :roll: Lol.

This would only be a 6pack for one person though, with a picture of the kids, so, i'd be keeping it.
