Have you been to Mish Mish? They sell these adorable Lil Veggie family shoulder pets, each is controlled by a HUD (seen above). The owner can wear the pet along with the HUD and choose different animations such as kiss, wave, jump, and sleep.
If you're in the mood to garden, the Mish Mish Vegetable Patch can grow tomatoes, carrots, radishes, and sprouts, all selectable via a menu. There are cute garden acessories sold at the shop as well, so you can decorate your garden area with seed packets, a watering can, and a mini shovel.
TP to Mish Mish, there are lots of cute and giftable items.
