It is always fun to share your experience with friends and family. Luckily, Penless can help! Penless offers stickers, post cards, greeting cards, and more to share your experience. When I went to Descanso Gardens with my mom, sister, and two nieces we wanted to share our experience with our other family members. We took pictures of the beautiful flowers and videos of what the garden had to offer. We gifted my father a succulent that my mom picked out from the gift store. We attached a cactus Penless sticker to the succulent with a video message of the garden.
