My brother-in-law had spent some time in Africa. While he was there, he was able to visit an organization that fosters elephants and rhinos. His girlfriend (now fiance) loves elephants, so he "adopted" one for her.
This past Christmas, Charles and I were trying to decide what to get them. Their foster parent aid had ended, so we thought it would be nice to reinstate it. Since you cannot really wrap that as a gift, I created a couple signs to send them to represent the donation. We ended up sponsoring both an elephant and rhino in their names.
The signs are very simple. You could even do something similar as nursery or child's room art.
