Happy Thanksgiving Day, Zoe Reporters! While last year we acknowledged this feast-focused holiday by sharing a delectable recipe—read: Rachel’s Beyond Brownies (a personal staff favorite!)—this time around we decided to highlight a very special assortment of gifts that give. After all, what better way to show appreciation for the things you are thankful for than by extending a loving hand to help others?
So before you brave the shopping crowds tomorrow or cash in on epic Cyber Monday deals—which we totally can’t wait to do—keep these philanthropic finds in mind when consulting your shopping list. From a vibrant fall tote to frayed wrap bracelets and fall-perfect skinny jeans, this array of chic-meets-charitable picks is sure to include a stylish something for every individual on your rolodex, yourself included!! Give and let give.
