Gift A (Plushy) Goat!


If you have ever found yourself dreaming of green pasture or surrounded by kids of the furry variety, your time has come. Two companies, You Goat This and You Goat Mail are challenging each another at being the best anonymous stuffed animal goat-gifting service.

That’s right—the recipient of the plushy goat will never know it was you. Incognito gift-giving is probably more synonymous with glitter bombing your dad, but the world of unidentified presents is booming. Anonymous doesn’t always have to be revenge, like Prank Candle’s scents which do not match their description—they can also be fluffy goats in a box.

While the goats are almost identical, each stuffed animal comes with something different. You Goat Mail’s cozy billy comes in a pasture of fake-grass with a handwritten note. But I believe you get more goat for your buck with their competitor, You Goat This. Their goat comes with its own carrier, a manual, leash, and collar—so you can feel like a real dairy farmer. You Goat This also donate 10 percent of their proceeds to purchase live goats for people in third world countries.

Although there’s a good chance you could justr buy the same toy and give it to your loved one in person for a ¼ of the price, where’s the fun in that?
