Does anyone else see a resemblance to Smaug?
For those of you looking for a last-minute gift for the nature-loving mesquite-hugging wonderful people in your life, here are some suggestions.
Donate money in their name or buy a membership to one of their favorite wildlife conservation groups. Below are some of my faves:
Attwater Prairie Chickens
Bat Sanctuary in Texas
Horned Lizard Conservation Society
Texas Land Conservation
Now, some of you are thinking, "That's great and all, but I want to give a REAL gift, something they can hold in their hands. Come on, Mesquite Hugger, man, be for real!" (My inner voice has a some strange speech patterns.) Well, you are in luck, many of these organizations actually sell tangible gifts. One of my favorite gifts from last Christmas is a black t-shirt from the Horned Lizard Conservation Society. I love to wear that shirt because people ask about it often and I have a chance to talk to others about the ongoing struggle to save these wonderful creatures.

Or let's say that you share an office with someone who talks about wine all the time. Wine, wine, whine! What better way to let them know they are driving you batty than a bottle of Bat Wine! (Just kidding, JG!)
Bat World Wines
May this list help you in your shopping dilemmas, and may your purchase help to create a better world.
