I have such a difficult time buying birthday gifts for my mother, but when I saw this, I knew I had to buy it for her. She works in a sector that is mostly male-dominant and is often not recognized for her accomplishments. This gift is so empowering!!

I love the uniqueness of this item and while it is a little smaller than I expected, it's quite nice. However, the quote on the outside of the box references women and minorities. This was purchased as a gift for a new employee of mine who is a young female with lots of potential, but she's also a minority, and I have no idea how she'd accept such a statement coming from her non-minority boss. The description of this item online says nothing about minorities. Had I known the box would say such a thing, I might not have purchased it. I like the paperweight so much though, that I replaced the box and wrote my own personal note to the recipient.

                        This is a great gift for someone who has or wants to "break the glass ceiling". I did have to explain that it wasn't broken a couple of times though.
