Love this idea! I have been trying to find something a little different and there are so many friends and family members, so this works perfect. Thanks Paula!

Thanks Lisa, I know what to do for the ladies in the office now. Many of them make a ton of money and don't really "need" anything and I am not in a financial situation to buy them expensive things so this gift will let them know that I am thinking of them and that's what matters most.
