Perhaps you avoided Black Friday’s discount shopping mayhem or missed Cyber Monday’s sales online. There’s no better time than the present to make a big-ticket buy without thinking twice about the price tag. We’re talking about Giving Tuesday, that wonderful time of year where the more damage you do to your bank account, the more you can benefit others—meaning part of the proceeds from your purchase will also be donated to a given charity or good cause. And isn’t spreading joy (while spending) what the holiday season is all about? In other words, consider coupling the occasion with a thoughtful gift for the most stylish do-gooder in your life who will appreciate the added sentiment.

Those hoping to impart a similar sense of wisdom may choose a smart accessory, such as State’s Mini Kane printed backpack; for each sold, the company will deliver a bag (fully equipped with essential tools for success) to an American child in need. Of course, animal lovers of all ages will jump at the thought of a four-legged friend who has been adopted from the ASPCA—even better if paired with a custom pet bed from Fair Cloth & Supply featuring one-of-a-kind patchwork and stitching detail made from repurposed military deadstock. To further get the act-of-kindness across, look to Indego Africa’s feather down pillow, which has been embroidered with the phrase Mon Amour Forever. Given that all profits fund educational training programs for the women in Africa who handcraft the nonprofit’s unique products, its recipient couldn’t ask for a more rewarding 40 winks.

Here, 44 stylish and worthy ways to give (and give back) this Giving Tuesday.
