8 Marketplace Faves For Gifting Made Easy!
Put down the eggnog, skip the ugly Christmas sweaters, and choose your White Elephant gift wisely. Seriously, if we learned anything from last year, it’s that the gift labeled Handle With Care is probably a Beta. Yes, we said Beta. As in a real fish that can live up to 5 years—and as a party trick (or defense mechanism) can play dead.
Now that we have your attention, here are some stellar products that are just as wonderful to give as they are to receive. Plus, you don’t have to ponder if it’s alive or just trying to scare you.
P.S. These are also small enough to make great stocking stuffers!
