4. The Title of Lord or Lady for Land Preservation

In Become a Scottish Lord or Lady for $49.99 we told you all about how to officially become a Lord or Lady for under 50 clams.

Why would this make such a great gift? Because along with the title of landed gentry comes a wee (like, one square foot, but still) parcel of Scottish land that will be protected from development. (Lord or Ladyship, $42)

The rest: Manure for crops | Trees for butterflies | Adopt an octopus | Lord or Lady title for land preservation | A milking camel | National Parks pass | Bikes not bombs | Adopt a book | Help a bison
