    I think gift certificates are an excellent idea.

    Common items such as test kits and the Hanna checkers are great, refractometers too.

    I would say gift cards for sure.

    Only you know what you want and why you need it.

    I feel like salt is a good one, we all need it. like stated before asking someone for a specific piece of equipment, theres way too many out there and they could get the wrong one. not a bad thing cuz its a gift, but if its the wrong one your not gonna want to use it. maybe gift cards registered somehow for free shipping. thats a great marketing idea imo. not sure if its something you guys would be willing to do but hey its an idea..

    The gift card set up for free shipping is a great idea. Maybe set it up some how so that all gift cards purchased within a certain time period would automatically receive free shipping.

    i would stay away from gifting fish...too many variables as with compatibility and such, but i would recommend something like a rare color of zoa or any gadget that we all want but just won't pull the plug on spending the money on cuz we can do without....hanna testers would fit this for me

    Fish gift experience #1
    A yellow tang
    At the time I was rocking a 35 gallon hex tank. Needless to say my husband and kids were just trying to surprise me. Best thing that came f that gift was my 150 g I had to get to satisfy my new fish and the tang police of course ;)
