Holy cow! 11 days until Christmas! If you are panicking along with the rest of us, consider a couple of great, simple and exciting options we have to offer at Critter Cabana. In an effort to ease your holiday gifting anxiety, I made a simple list of some products we carry that I would have LOVED to get as a kid.
1. Betta kit: A simple, easily maintained, and affordable fish tank option is the betta kit. We have a large selection of various (and adorable I might add) betta kits to fit the style of any personality. These kits can also house more than just a betta. We will include an informative hand out about the many options you will have for pets to include in your betta tank.
2. Arachnid or Frog Kit: There are a variety of animals (Pacman Frog, Tarantula and Scorpion) that can live full and happy lives in a petite, easy-to-maintain enclosure. These pets are unique, relatively low maintenance, affordable to maintain, and entertaining to have (and even more entertaining to take to take to show and tell!). You can customize your own set up, or we would be happy to put a kit together for you.
3. Puppy: Okay, I know…..for some of you, this is an extreme item and I realize it is not appropriate for all families. But for those of you who have considered including a new puppy as a new addition to your family, Christmas is such a fun time to do it. My husband brought home my little guy (a pug, named Gimli) 3 years ago, and it was the best Christmas gift I have ever received. Both our Newberg and Wilsonville stores have a great puppy selection that I encourage you to check out (we also have a list of current pups on our website). Your family will never forget the Christmas they got their puppy.
4. Needle felted animals: Needle-felted animals are not just cute, they also make great gifts for people of all ages. They are unique, handmade items that show thoughtfulness and care. These adorable little creatures can be customized to fit any personality, making them a great way to show someone you care. Whether you want to surprise a friend with a custom-made dog that looks just like their pet, or you want to give your child a cute little fox for their birthday, needle felted animals are the perfect way to add a personal touch to any gift-giving occasion. They are also great for those who are environmentally conscious as they are handmade with natural materials such as wool and can be used for decoration and playtime for years to come.
4. When in doubt, get a gift certificate! We all pretend to hate to give them, but we all prefer to get them. Get your friend or family member a gift certificate to Critter Cabana today!
