Looking for a unique wedding gift for a relative celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, the “Rocket Fish” minnow was the right thing to buy, Gordon said. Fifth anniversary gifts are wood, as are the fish.

“The only thing we could think of was a picture frame, and this (the minnow) was so unusual,” Gordon said.
