Judith (our store manager) came up with a wonderful gift idea the other day. Give a gift of livestock (such as a flock of geese for $20) to a family through Heifer International in honor of your child this holiday, then give your child a simple wooden animal toy or ornament resembling the animal you donated in their name! Our popular Ostheimer animals above (made in Germany) as well as these cute palm fiber, fair trade animal ornaments would be perfect (below). Palm fiber ornaments are $7.50 each. New Ostheimer shipment just arrived! (prices vary)

If you arent familiar with Heifer International, it’s worth checking out. Heifer gives donated livestock & training to families in developing countries for both food and income. Recipients often share the offspring of gift animals with their communities. Founded in 1944, Heifer has provided millions of families with both food and income. Gifts start at $20. Visit to learn more.
