So when one little girl got in trouble, she knew they were the perfect present for making amends - and the sweet gesture has made her an internet star.
When Reddit user pink_vicky told off a neighbour's child for pelting rocks at her door, she thought that was the end of the matter.
But the girl - called Ketsia - was filled with remorse at her actions and decided to make a grand gesture to apologise. So she set about making loom bands for pink_vicky, her husband and their baby boy.
Not feeling brave enough to apologise in person, Ketsia attached the bracelets to a note, which read:
"Dear parents of the little boy,
"I am truly sorry for throwing stones and rocks at your door. I was acting very stupid and after you told me off I heard a baby crying and I wasn't sure if it was your baby or not. I am really sorry, like really, really sorry and I hope you forgive me."
On the back of the note she added more lines of "'I'm really sorry, really, really sorry."
The impassioned plea worked and pink_vicky said: "'We posted a reply back through the hole in the fence this morning, saying we accepted her apology and thanked her for the bracelets."
