For your charitable girlfriend Regina who certainly doesn’t need any more stuff:

A pig donated to Heifer International ($120)

Through Heifer International, the charitable gift-giving organization that aims to end world hunger, you can choose from all sorts of animals, “living saving accounts,” to donate to families in need. Big spenders can go for an actual Heifer at $500, but gifting a pig leaves a little cash leftover to spread the love around your local community.
