They come prepackaged and I would say the Cravaat comes in a more gift friendly manner because it comes in a mesh bag that really is ready to be gifted. In terms of craftsmanship, it's quite nice, it's a bit slimmer around the neck area for the Cravaat and is really silky smooth. I quite like the design and frankly, I don't really want to get it dirty either because of the lighter color. Despite the slight differences in their designs, their function is the same. I feel the Cravaat II offers a bit more protection since the front is sewn together but at the same time, I prefer the Cravaat because it's more mobile. However, due to the size of the Cravaat II, it's more likely to give you a little warmth when you're feeling a bit chilly. So, in the end, I can't pick one over the other. They're both nice.

In my opinion though, these Cravaats are great for people of all ages, whether as a bib or clothing protector. I just can't get over the fact that I can protect my nice clothes with this and just drop it in the wash afterwards. I think $20 is a good price to pay considering how much we spend on dry cleaning and sometimes, the stain doesn't even come out! It's such a pain! Plus, it's fashionable, so if you are gifting to anyone, especially an elderly person, it doesn't impinge on their independence since it looks like a fashion item rather than a bib. It's so creative, fashionable, and functionally useful for people of all ages that I think I may have fallen in love with it. What do you think? Do you or someone you know spill food all over themselves?
