Great Gift Idea For Kids... and Adults


Alex's birthday was approaching fast, and I was not ready - I had no idea what to get! While I  LOVE LOVE LOVE giving (and receiving) gifts, I take forever to come up with a great gift idea searching for something special. Luckily, I have a friend who is a walking treasure filled with really great gift ideas. And, like always, she came to the rescue -"Why don't you get him a Betta fish?" she asked.

"Oh no," I said,  "I don't think I could commit to cleaning the tank every few weeks."

"But you don't have to," she replied, "Betta fish lives in a bowl which is pretty easy to clean."

"You mean just like cutie Cleo from Pinoccio?" Oh, that was a really great gift idea!

So we went to a pets' store together, and twenty fun minutes later we came out with a bowl, aquarium gravel, cute little cave for fish to hide in, fake plants, Betta water conditioner, an about Betta fish flyer, and a beautiful Betta fish, of course!
Problem was solved! The gift turned out to be truly special. And Alex called his new friend Feneffie :)

...And now I want my own Betta fish!

With love always,
