I can’t believe the holiday season is already upon us and I’m really looking forward to bringing you lots of gift guides to help with all your seasonal shopping! There are plenty more to come so stay tuned.

First, I’m kicking things off with a cool way to give back this holiday season. We have a family tradition on Christmas Eve of serving food at a homeless shelter and bringing baked goods to the doctors and nurses where my mom works. It’s such a nice reminder to be thankful for all we’ve been given, whether it’s a warm meal or just our mom having the day off because her coworkers are covering for her. It’s in this spirit of holiday giving that I’m excited to share the Toms for Target collection, a limited edition collection launching November 16 that will donate shoes, a blanket, or meals to those in need for every purchase made.

Each item you purchase corresponds with a donation to those less fortunate. For instance, if you purchase the poncho above, Toms for Target will give one blanket. The chambray shirt (my favorite!) provides a week of meals. (You can browse the entire collection here to see what items will be donated for which purchase.) There are items for women, men, kids, and home so you’re sure to find a great gift for someone on your list (at Target prices, of course!) and do something kind for someone in need. That’s what I call a win-win.

  1. I was so excited when I discovered that Toms and Target were collaborating, but I had no idea there would be more than just shoes! Absolutely loving those throw blankets.

  2. Wow, this is such an exciting collaboration!! I love your message about remembering to be grateful–not just around the holiday, but all the time. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. I love buying clothes or items that tell a story of giving. Every time I wear or use them I remember the story and take the time to be thankful for my good fortune. My new post talks about how objects and clothes are like a tangible memoir that tells the story of who you are to the world. I just bought really hip and modern glasses from Warby Parker another organization like Tom’s that helps you make giving a part of your life story.
