In the words of legendary humanitarian Cher Horowitz, "'Tis a far, far better thing doing stuff for other people." And she was right: there's no better feeling than giving a gift with a charitable slant — not only does your recipient's face light up when she sees it, but you both get the extra satisfaction of knowing that you're doing some good as well. If you're on the hunt for a killer gift that also helps a great cause, look no further: from a chic pair of PJs to a handmade sketchbook (and yes, even baby chicks!), we've rounded up 15 perfect presents that will delight your friends and family — and seriously warm your heart.

Chances are, you or someone you know wears a pair of Toms shoes, which means somewhere in the world a child who needed a pair of shoes got one. The one-for-one principle of Toms is expanding, this time to sunglasses and eyesight. Founder Blake Mycoskie partnered with Seva Foundation to create a program that will help give sight to people in need via medical treatment, prescription eyeglasses, and sight-saving surgery. How does the program get funded? Each time someone buys a pair of Toms sunglasses. This good deed is rather effortless once you get a look at the super-cool styles Toms debuted. The 101, 201, and 301 styles all have hand-painted stripes — in tons of pretty colors — that signify the purchaser (aka the giver), the sight recipient, and Toms. We think that's pretty cool, and we're particularly jazzed on the price: getting chic, Summer shades and giving the gift of sight will cost $135-$145. You can shop them right now at Toms.
