Believe it or not Christmas is almost here! I haven’t really started shopping yet, but I do have a few things that are on my list. At the top is the #TOMSforTarget new collection that is in stores and online NOW! It really is in tune with the holiday spirit. Giving back is exactly what TOMS is known for with its one for one giving model. The collection will have signature comfy TOMS shoes in stylish designs for both kids and toddlers (hoping they have Joseph’s size), hoodies, a poncho that I’m hoping to get, blankets and even some items for mom’s, dad’s and even items for around the house.
The limited edition collection which is sure to sell out quickly includes 50 products all under $50. Making it perfectly easy to treat you and your loved ones while giving back at the same time. In fact, for each #TOMSforTarget purchase, Target will donate a blanket, a meal through the American Red Cross or Canadian Red Cross, or one week of meals through Feeding America or Food Banks Canada. And for every #TOMSforTarget pair of shoes sold, a pair will go to children in need. This has got to be my favorite Target collaborations yet! The collection is stylish and simple without sacrificing an ounce of quality.
Check out some of my favorite pieces below. Never has looking good been so good for the soul!
Toms For Target: One-for-One. For All. Starting November 16th, for every Target+Toms limited edition gift you buy, we’re (Target) giving shoes, a blanket or meals to those in need. #TomsForTarget
