I bought 2 sets and used one for myself and gave the other to a family member. I put the pictures in BEFORE I gave the second set away, They were received wth such joy. To have my relative open a gift and find her childrens faces smiing up at her was quite pleasing. She uses the coasters everyday. She lives in a retirement community and now her bridge club puts their tea cups on the smiling young faces of her children and they can't help but ask about the wonderful photo's. A captive audience who is willing! it doesn't get better than that!
