Christmas Gift Guide for Your Favourite Feminist

christmas gift guide

This year I decided to do something a little bit different with my gift guide post. I don’t often do gift guides and those I see on the internet don’t often feel very me. This year’s first (and maybe only) gift guide of Christmas 2017 is themed. So here’s some inspiration for anyone in your life who supports feminism and equality.

Products marked with *** give a portion of their proceeds to a specific charity or cause. And there’s some really worthy causes on the list! 

The only products in this post that are affiliate linked are the books. All others are just linked to various shops because I just want to promote them, not necessarily make a few dollars. Not that there’s anything wrong with making a few affiliate sales, because there’s not. But I just wanted this to be as transparent as possible, and for those readers who are afraid of clicking links in case they are affiliated, click away! 

Christmas Gift Guide for Your Favourite Feminist

1. Feminist Killjoy embroidered shirt from Lisa Macario. Top of my own gift list. 

2. Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay 

3. Grow a Pair enamel pin from Radical Buttons etsy shop. 

4. I am I am I am (Sylvia Plath quote necklace) from Out of Print 

5. My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem 

6. Tote Bag from Grow Wild etsy shop.

7. Rights Tote from Feminist Apparel 

8. Feminist Killjoy Enamel Pin from PunkyPins etsy shop

9. Nasty Woman tshirt from GoogleGhost ***50% of proceeds from these shirts go to Planned Parenthood. To date they’ve donated $130,293 to Planned Parenthood and $1,129 to the ACLU–a total of $131,422.

10. Venus Symbol earrings from the Misty Aurora etsy shop

11. Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein 

12. Bangers tshirt from Girl vs Cancer *** 25% of the proceeds go to Coppa Feel!, TrekStock, Future Dreams, and Look Good Feel better.  

13. Nevertheless, She Persisted shirt from the Outrage. ***15% of profit from this collection is donated to She Should Run 

14. The Future is Female tshirt by Otherwild. (Which I already own and you can see featured here. I have a bit of a bee in my bonnet about this one because TopShop basically knocked it off for huge profits where as Otherwild donates 25% to Planned Parenthood.) 

15. We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

16. Ruth Bader Ginsburg mug from FishEddy 

And anything from the Outrage x Heather Heyer Foundation, in honour of Heather, who lost her life in Charlottesville whilst protesting against white nationalism. 

I chose from a mixture of independent shops and stores in both the US and the UK, so hopefully there’s something on the list that will ship to you all over the world! 

Is there anything you’d add to the list?

    • I tried to find more items that fit within the theme that supported charities as well, but it was trickier than you might think to find! x

  • GREAT FUN LIST!!! Love the t-shirts here too!!!

  • An interesting and fun looking list

  • What a great idea!!

  • This is an excellent theme for a list! My friends are in a band in Berlin. They have this line in one of their songs that I love: “Audrey Lorde have mercy on arseholes.” You should check them out: https://igotpartyfears.bandcamp.com/album/party-fears. They recently played the Loud Women festival in London.

  • This is such a good idea! I dont often find gift guides that interesting, but as soon as I saw this I had to read. Love all the t shirts, and I had no idea Topshop had ripped off the Otherwild tee, that’s terrible! I might have to put a few of these on my Christmas list…x

    • Thanks Sophie! I basically just shopped around thinking about what I’d really like to honestly receive and came up with this! x

  • Full disclosure: I once wrote a gift guide. Waaaay back as a baby blogger. It felt wrong and… icky. It’s now part of my deleted posts archive, which is a terrible thing for SEO and DA but a surprisingly good thing for de-icking the soul. Love this take on the “theme” as it were xx

    • I’ve definitely deleted some early posts. Sometimes it really just needs to be done for the soul. x

  • I love this and I need every single of these items!! *off shopping
    I wrote a blog post about a feminist book gift guides a few weeks back mostly because of a work secret santa that’s made me think about that haha

    • Hahah I basically went: what things would I like to get and that’s how this post was born! X
