Perfect pressie for the person with everythingBy: SuzC on 6 July 2017I bought one of these for a friend's birthday and she absolutely loved it. A great novel idea ... and you'll be pretty sure they don't already have one! No idea yet whether it works or not but it looks great on the shelf. I went to Ed Resources to pick mine up and they couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Would definitely recommend.
