Janet, 1 USD equals 0.65 British Pounds. This means that the gifts above would translate to the following prices in the UK: 

Bicycle                       4.30-150 British Pound



Sewing machine        75.04-135.85 British Pound



Chicken                     1.94-2.59 British Pound



Goat                            13.58-22.64 British Pound



Cow                            135.85-150.73 British Pound



Pig                           22.64-32.99 British Pound. 


I would encourage you to use the Currency Calculator that Google provides, for future reference.
