Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide for Your Fave Feminist

There are so many bad-ass feminist gifts on the Internet. Come check out a small sample of the goodness.

I am a loud and proud feminist. I have been asking for this for the past few years, and haven’t gotten it because I think people think I am kidding. I am not. I put it on my Christmas list again this year and explicitly stated that it was what I wanted most. Then I put this gift guide together and realized I wanted all the things. Crap.

A Cat With a Legitimate Gripe

Found by our fantastic Hillary, these feminist cats are the shit. Fluffy fat cat, sexism makes me grumpy, too. Come sit on my lap and get some snuggles.

A beautiful book filled with inspirational tales of kick ass women? Yes please!

So Freaking True

I need another tote like I need a hole in the head, but how cute would my nieces be carrying their school stuff in this? It has the benefit of appealing to the princess aesthetic while making a strong statement.

Coloring Fun

“Girls are thinkers, creators, fighters, healers, and superheroes.” So says the description for this coloring book. Filled with Miss Muffet telling off the spider and princesses turning shit stereotypes on their heads, this coloring book could be an excellent gift for adults and kids alike.

Loud and Proud

A New Kind Of Fairytale Book

Tell me this book doesn’t sound totally awesome: “Dismayed by the predominance of male protagonists in her daughters’ books, Kathleen Ragan set out to collect the stories of our forgotten heroines: courageous mothers, clever young girls, and warrior women who save villages from monsters, rule wisely over kingdoms, and outwit judges, kings, and tigers.” A must have for all youngsters, not just girls. What a fabulous way to show that not all stories about girls are about frilly little weaklings who need to be saved.

Quotable Coasters

“I drank, because I wanted to drown my sorrows, but now the damned things have learned to swim.” —Frida Kahlo. If that isn’t reason enough to buy these coasters, I don’t know what else is.

How about you all? Do you wear your feminism loud and proud, or prefer more subtlety in your life? Are you the lone feminist in your family, or do others join in? Happy shopping!
