While we're not suggesting that you surprise an unsuspecting relative with a demanding new puppy, a new best friend is one of the most memorable gifts you can give those who are willing to take on the charge. Support North Shore Animal League, the country's largest no-kill shelter, or give a check to cover the cost of an adoption from your local Humane Society. (North Shore Animal League Cat or Dog Adoption, $75-$225)
