You can choose from a selection of animals to sponsor, including leopards, lions, penguins, and orang-utans. If you're giving to someone else, you can pay the one off payment, or if it's a self gift (shh I won't tell anyone) you can pay monthly. Also, you get a cuddly toy, fact pack, and regular updates on how the little beasts are doing. Starting at £36, but do donate more if you can.

Woof woof, how cute are these?! An ideal gift for anyone who would love a dog but can't afford one. I am 100% for a plate that reveals an image of a dog as you slowly (or quickly) demolish your nosh. 10/10 for style and value on this product.
