5 Body Positive Gift Ideas!

A few weeks ago I gave you 5 tips for surviving the holidays as a non-dieting, body positive person.

So this week I’d like to suggest some body positive and fat positive gifts for the rad fatty in your life!

  1. Body Positive Books: There are so many out there right now, I couldn’t pick just one. Here are a few I think you’ll love:
  2. Yay! Scale: I love these things. It’s really empowering to step on a scale and see that you’re hot, gorgeous, and beautiful at any size!
  3. Certain Clothing Store Gift Cards: One of the worst gifts you can give someone is a gift card to a store that doesn’t carry their size. Stores like KiyonnaIgigiSWAK Designs and Torrid go up to 5x, which will work for most plus-sized folks, but if you think your giftee may not be in this size range, choose a different gift.
  4. Body Glitter: I love body glitter. It’s may seem completely frivolous, but I believe that body glitter is one of those things that crowds out body hate. Here are two (1 and 2) that I like.
  5. Earrings: One of the most lovely things about loving your body is having fun with adornment. Unlike bracelets, rings and necklaces, earrings are really one size fits all (unless your giftee has gauged or unpierced earlobes). Of course, you can go lots of different ways with earrings, but I’ve been eyeing these on pinterest for a few days now.

I hope you have fun checking out these gifts. Happy Holidays!

On the earring front, people with gauged piercings can still wear dangly earrings (I hang them through my tunnels all the time). And cuff earrings (the kind that just sort of wrap around the top of your ear) work even if the person you are gifting doesn’t have pierced ears.
