'I purchased this as a birthday present to my best friend in New York, as I thought it's a perfect gift for something creative (and pretty!) to do during lockdown. Lucy went beyond to get this delivered on her birthday, which I'm eternally thankful for. London Refinery not only offers perfect gifts for someone special but also a superb customer service. Needless to say, my friend was ecstatic to receive this from across the pond and made it right away. We're both perfectly satisfied customers here. Thank you Lucy!' US Customer.
