Thanks a Million Appreciation Gift

We all have someone in our lives we appreciate – whether they have done something special or are always there when we need them.  Think teachers, co-workers, clergy, nurses, doctors… the list is endless.  To show your appreciation, give them our Thanks a Million Appreciation Gift!  It is simple to make, works for men and women, and can be made for less than $7!  You don’t even have to buy a card… we have a bonus free printable you can use!
