One-For-One, For All: The TOMS for Target holiday collection
"Like many of you probably know, TOMS implements the incredible One-for-One program all year around, and now with their Target collaboration for every gift purchased, a gift will be given to someone in need. As much joy as the holiday season brings, it is important to remember those that are less fortunate and to keep in mind the importance of gifts that continue to keep giving." - Kendall, Styled Snapshots

"Starting November 16th, TOMS and Target are partnering for a special holiday collaboration. TOMS for Target follows the one-for-one model.

This collection includes blankets, canvas pouches, bracelets, sweaters and more in addition to the original TOMS slip-ons." - Krystal, A Pinch of Lovely

We're pretty excited about the upcoming holiday season. After all, who doesn't love all the parties, gift-giving, and time spent with family and friends? We must admit, however, that the holiday season comes with its fair share of stressors -- time, budgets, fretting over finding the perfect gift. All that fuss is exactly why TOMS is bringing its charitable One-For-One business model to the holiday shopping season this year.

TOMS has teamed up with Target to launch a holiday collection that gives back, allowing the most festive weeks of the year to reclaim their true meaning -- creating joy and giving to others. The TOMS for Target collaboration, a line of affordable, stylish, and socially-conscious gifts for women, men, and children, launches on November 16th, just in time for the holidays. For every Target+TOMS limited edition gift purchased, Target is giving shoes, a blanket, or meals to those in need. It's one of the most perfect ways we can think of to give a gift that really means something.

Several of our contributors have teamed up with TOMS for Target to share how they'll be gifting from this year's collaboration. Click through the gallery to hear what it means to them to give a gift that gives back.
