My mom has an old, small magnetic board that she uses in the kitchen, to hold her recipes while she bakes. I might upgrade hers with one of these when her birthday rolls around. This board is big (18.5" x 18.5"), customizable (choose colors, fonts, ribbon accent), and can also be used as a dry erase board (even on this black one -- use a chalk marker). The back has an easel so it can be set on the counter or it can be hung on the wall. So sweet! $28.00 at Etsy.
