They all know Half Shell well so I know they will like them.
They also are good for posting home, because they were not expensive. And postage is expensive, particularly packages!!!. What I am going to do is pop one in an envelope and put an international stamp on it ($1.20), i.e. post it as a letter versus a parcel...if it makes it, it makes it, if it doesn't, it doesn't.
Coincidentally each straw was $1 each. I was shopping for a reusable straw, and saw these fancy ones - in packs of two for $9. And then, the girl behind the counter noted to me that she had some "old stock" left at a dollar each. There were 9 of them! So for the price of two, I bought all nine :)
