"These little boxes made charming stocking stuffers for the women in my family. Everyone commented on how lovely their little box was. Some used as jewelry box, pill box, special decor on dressing table."

"I have (among others) six especially dear friends at church, so every Christmas I search your catalog for nice things that come in units of six, and each one gets to pick her favorite color or style. I've done this for several years now, and my friends are always pleased. The last three years were fridge magnets, book markers, and (this year,) the pill boxes. I put a shiny, "lucky penny" in each one of the boxes to the delight of the recipients."
