Secret Santa Gift Exchange!

Hi! This is Kit writing.
This year my school is doing a Secret Santa gift exchange. I'm pretty excited about it; I haven't ever been in one before!
My teacher announced it this morning. After quite a bit of explanation, she had us all write our names and interests on a slip of paper. Then we put the papers into a box.
She shook the box up, and passed it around so we could each take a slip of paper.
I carefully unfolded my paper. It said, in very tidy handwriting, "Molly McIntire". 
I was struck speechless. What are the odds that I would get the name of my friend??
I sneaked a sly peek at Molly, who was sitting across the room from me. She was staring absently into space and chewing on the end of her pencil. I cringed inwardly. I have always been disgusted by that habit.
I looked back at the tiny slip of paper that I was holding, and tried to think of what I knew about Molly. The paper said that she liked lizards, and that her favorite color was green.
From my experiences with her, I know that she has a dog and a lizard, and is fond of sports, games, and baking.

Any suggestions about what I should get for her?
