Target + TOMS - One For One, For All

I am sure there are a few of you early birds out there that have already finished your holiday shopping. I am jealous if you are one of them. For most of us, November is the month when we began to plan, make our gift lists and start shopping for friends and family. 

This year I decided that I am going to do most of my gift buying online and avoid the hectic hustle and bustle of the stores. I also plan to be wiser about my purchases. Honestly, until I started planning and doing research for this post I had no idea that there were so many websites, stores and products out there that gave back to charitable causes. The more I perused online, the more excited I became. You guys, there are hundreds of ways that you can make a substantial difference in someone's life when shopping and it goes beyond buying holiday presents...this is a year round opportunity. 

Before I spill the beans on two companies we all know and how they're teaming up to feed, clothe and keep people warm this winter season, I wanted to share 10 gift ideas I came across where the proceeds from sales give back to deserving people all over the world. There is something for everyone on your list.

Now for the exciting part. Starting November 16th, for every TOMS for Target limited edition gift you buy, they will give shoes, blankets or meals to those in need. Pretty awesome, right?

More good news? The limited edition collection is stellar. There are items for women, men, kids and the home. I included a few of my favorite styles and pieces below. Be sure to stop by and take a look at more TOMS for Target selections.

On the side of each photo there will be an icon that will explain what will be donated if you purchase a certain item. Remember, these items are available on November 16th, so you can't buy anything just yet. I know, I want to shop now too! However, you are able to see the pricing for all the pieces listed and everything is super affordable. Set your alarms and mark your calendars. This is going to be HUGE and we can all make a HUGE impact starting November 16th. Giving sure does look good on you and is the true sentiment of the holidays.
