"I have both the white and blue paperweights, and I am trying to decide which to give my husband for his birthday. It's a tough choice! Very lovely. As it always seems more difficult to buy gifts that would work for a non-traditional man (no cufflinks, no ties, please), I appreciate this item particularly."
