I hope you've been enjoying our series highlighting some of the livestock and other options from the Heifer Gift Catalog. I know many people like giving and receiving the gift of a goat or a share of a water buffalo. It's not only a great way to honor someone you care for, it's also kind of nice to give something you know isn't going to end up in the give-away pile by February.

But sometimes you really do just want to give something tangible, in addition to the gift of world peace. Well, here's some good news: Shop@Heifer is back online, just in time for the holiday season. These gifts not only help spread our mission, the sales benefit Heifer as well.

Giving a share of a pig to your 5-year-old nephew? Get him a plush pink pig to help make the gift of hope a bit more tangible for him.

My other favorites are the Heifer grocery bag set (I've given several as gifts and have a set for myself, too.) and the children's book, The Chicken and the Worm.

Shopping for yourself? Wear your love for Heifer with a ballcap, scarf or t-shirt (I'd take a hoodie, myself).
