On Gifts: Pets and Plants

1 Oct

Plain and simple: do NOT give pets or plants as a gift unless you know for certain that the recipient really wants them. Otherwise, you are just giving them work and responsibility. Those are the kinds of gifts you should only get from your parents.

    Agree completely! Someone gave me this rose plant for my housewarming party, and I proceeded to kill it. I don’t deal well with plants! So now I just feel guilty for failing, and it wasn’t even my choice 🙂

      Yes! My mother’s been getting plants, and now she has to find sunny places for them all.
      The worst scenario is when someone gets a pet for their significant other and the relationship ends- who gets custody of the puppy?
