Giving Tuesday is Nov. 28 this year, just one day after Cyber Monday, and if you plan on doing some serious holiday shopping this week, why not take one day to be really mindful about the gifts you're giving and the products you're buying. There so many incredible, quality gifts on the market today that benefit great causes. From TOMS to Kiehl's, Warby Parker, MAC and more, most brands carry at least one charitable product, if it's not a part of their DNA and permanent business model (like TOMS). The holiday season is for sharing joy, so why not kill two birds with one stone and share joy with the person receiving the gift AND a stranger across the globe, whose life will be forever changed. Not a bad idea, right? Click through the slideshow to shop the best gifts that give back this year.
