London: Actress Alicia Silverstone has a unique gift suggestion for her fans this Christmas. She has urged them to gift animal sponsorship to their loved ones.

The 'Clueless' star, who follows a vegan diet, is supporting an initiative by US-based farm animal protection organisation, Farm Sanctuary, to fund the security of various creatures, including pigs, goats and chickens, reports a website.

In a post on her blog, she wrote: 'For all the animal lovers among your friends and family, what's a better gift than an animal adoption that lasts for the whole year? For families who live within driving distance of a sanctuary, an animal in need they can go visit anytime is a wonderful gift.'

'Farm Sanctuary has posted their annual list of adoptable animals for this holiday season... Go to Farm Sanctuary's website to sponsor or make a donation. Gift recipients will be mailed an adoption certificate, colour photo and details about scheduling a VIP tour to meet their new adopted friend. You can also shop for gift items in Farm Sanctuary's store here.'
