Not literally of course, but the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) has some Really Wild Gifts that allow you to give a unique and meaningful present - saving an animal's life.

When you choose a Really Wild Gift from WSPA your donation will be used to help build sanctuaries, fund mobile veterinary clinics, and protect animals from cruelty all over the world.

"Rescuing chimps and elephants and spaying dogs and cats are far from your traditional gifts," says Silia Smith, WSPA Canadian Director. "People want to give and receive meaningful gifts and our Really Wild Gifts fit that bill. It's a gift that has purpose and that changes the world we live in for the better."

As an added bonus you don't have to fight the crowds at the mall or stress about what to get people; instead you can sit in the comfort of your home and make a real difference.
