For most of us, Thanksgiving is a day of friends, family, football and filling multiple plates with pie. But for a few, it’s the official kickoff of holiday shopping season. Though we can’t imagine camping out in the cold for a major score, we do love a little online shopping in quiet moments (or while we’re on the road). If you find yourself in the same position, why not spend your retail therapy time shopping from
our “Gifts That Give Back” gallery?

We’ve rounded up 13 presents that benefit causes as important (and varied) as providing education to women in Uganda, feeding hungry children, hearth health and more — all while being super-stylish and thoughtful gifts for those you love. And if you get something for yourself, who can blame you? Happy shopping!
