Sooo, we thought we'd put together a lil (but actually pretty big—I spent a lot of time on this) gift guide full of everything to get your mom, your bff, your dog, and (most importantly) YOURSELF! Or me, feel free to buy me anything.
Honoring a few of our favorite feminist idols, including Christa Mcauliffe and Katherine Johnson.
Yo, this is a cute 'lil baggie full of fair trade, vegan, non-GMO, sustainable CONDOMS so you can go to the bone zone ethically bc Netflix 'n Chill is rly last year and not sexy enough for the end of 2016 and possibly the world. Btw, 10% of profits are donated to women’s health initiatives!
Because we love BAGGU and a good period pun! Plus you can't rip these, it's literally impossible, bc it's 100% RIPSTOP NYLON. It also holds 2-3 plastic grocery bags (50 lbs max) worth of stuff, so you can quit plastic bags for good. It also fits into a teeny, tiny, flat 5 in. x 5 in. pouch.
Free the nipple and hang it in your kitchen.👊🏼💯 These tiddies come in brown, tan, and pink are made of puuuure, sturdy muslin.
My teenage angst bullshit doesn't have a body count (yet) but I'm obsessed with the Psychic Hearts brand and The Smiths x Winona Ryder (patron saint of women everywhere who've struggled in specific industries 10x harder than their male counterparts) is p much solid gold. Plus, they throw in cute pins with everything you buy.
100% of the proceeds from these v cute flower pots go to Planned Parenthood. They are sold out right now, but you can put your name on the mailing list to be notified as soon as they're back in stock!
The perfect gift for your breastie. She'll think of you every time she throws on her favorite denim jacket! This pack Includes 1.5" cloisonné pin, 2 vinyl stickers, and a postcard.
Reductress is probably the best fake media site of all time; read this book to sharpen your sense of humor.
Lots of mixed messages here, but we love it. WORK HARD, PLAY HARDER. But also take care of yourself. Daily reminders while you're hard at work breakin' glass ceilings, or just at home writing in your padlocked diary from Claire's.
Speaking of Claire's, you're an adult now, so you can buy these things yourself if you need a fuzzy, colorful, creepy place to vent. Also, there's a buy 3, get 3 free deal, so I don't know what my mom's excuse was for not even buying me one when I was 8.
A casual (& cozy) reminder to gtf away from me and stf away from me. It also comes in red!
The joke is that I'm not. Each of these babies is iron-on and made-to-order.
We all have hard days—this zine will remind you of the silver linings. Please buy this for me. This is a cry for help. Apparently this is filled with 32 pages of "notes and ideas to help you make it through the tough times" and I need it now more than ever!!!
Gluten free! Dairy free! There's also a matching phone case if you want to drink 200% boy tears.
"You'll always be my babayyy," you sing to yourself as you apply lipstick with your new compact mirror. No one else, tho. Actually the mirror inside breaks if let a dude look at himself in it.
The cramp crew unites. Are you ovary it? Are you OVARY 2016 yet?
Beyoncé on repeat. I wish I could give this to so many of my old male coworkers. I mean, I still could but the joke would be on me bc they'd be all ironic and drink like, homemade matcha out of it and booty call me later thanking me for the gift.
Cover all the bases—all four of these kits come with a different book, the same amazing tea and chocolates, a lil mug, a notebook, pencils. OH yeah, and another cool gift could just be subscription to Bitch Magazine ;)
Because unicorns and glitter are s'not something to miss (neither are bad pun opportunities). I wear this on my face as part of my makeup routine and e v e r y b o d y compliments me!
You know what else is lit? That 25% of the proceeds from your pin purchase go to the ALCU.
...because isn't it? BONUS: 25% of the proceeds of sales of the shirt go to ENLACE. Check out the rest of the site for more merch made specifically for non-gender-conforming peeps and in support of some vvvvvv important organizations.
Not gonna lie, our Growth Strategist really wants this so we added. Maybe you can buy it for her? Maybe she's already your friend? But if your friend likes music, they will love this. We promise!
EDITOR'S NOTE: In editing this, I'd like to clarify that I don't even have a record player bc I illegally download my music like an adult. I just want to remind everyone of the Pure Morning lyric "A friend in need's a friend indeed, a friend who BLEEDS is BETTER" (he's talkin' about periods, ppl!!!) and what Brian Molko's oppenness about mental health and songs like Nancy Boy did for the LGBT community and gender fluidity in the '90s. ;) But, when Placebo announce US tour dates, yeah, feel free to buy me tix (VIP pls).
Ain't nothin' crass about a tampon in our opinion, so why not stamp it on every piece of paper in your home? Your grocery list is about to get a wholeeee lot cuter. Plus, you can stamp it on all your dad's work reports when you're home for the holidays! Literally STAMP out the patriarchy (sorry, dad) (psyche!!!).
This really floats our boat. Plus, it's cold outside, and even the idea of a float is tempting.
Omg, these sex toys are made of 100% real crystals and I'm pretty sure there's one for the alignment of every chakra you've got. The one pictured is Rose Quartz, and Shop Spectrum Boutique (my fav sex toy boutique on the planet) says it'll dissolve my emotional wounds, fears, and resentments, of which I have MANY!
SRSLY SHOP AT SHOP SPECTRUM BOUTIQUE, ZOË LIGON IS SRSLY CHANGING THE SEX-POSITIVE SEXY TIME TOY GAME SO HARD.
I wish it said "tit knit" instead, but 10% from each blanket goes to Standing Rock Sioux, Planned Parenthood, Southern Poverty Law Center, and Everytown for Gun Safety!
For the radical in your life, these daily planners are chock full of radical dates, a contact list of radical groups around the globe, menstrual calendar, info on police repression, and more. Plus, so many fun colors. Plus, ONLY $6?
I used to have this shirt, and idk what happened to it, but that doesn't mean YOU can't have it. Look at it, it's awesome. Featuring many a Riot Grrrl reference, from X-Ray Spex to Tracy + the Plastics.
TBH, this is the best unisex piece I've seen in a minute. It speaks for itself.
SO one of my fav Williamsburg boutiques In God We Trust partnered with Rachel Antonoff to bring you these rad money clips bc, in their words, "witty and rich should go hand in hand." Pull this out on a date to show them you can handle your shit, then say you forgot your wallet anyway bc technically a money clip is not a wallet and you're a real piece of work.
Straight from the glass-ceiling breaker's mouth: "Part manual, part manifesto, Feminist Fight Club blends the personal stories of a group of women who formed a secret group in New York City with research, statistics, and no-bullsh*t advice for how to combat today’s sexism." LITERALLY EVERYBODY NEEDS THIS.
You can customize these badass rings to say anything, but this is like, already up there for sale, so you don't even have to think that hard. They did the work for you.
OMG YO, this is so cute and only 10 bucks. 💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦
Y'all, I loveeee a good crop top. And proceeds go to charity!
On Dolores Haze's (yowza for a literary reference) website, a Bell Hooks quote follows the listing: "...To be a 'feminist' in any authentic sense of the term is to want for all people, female and male, liberation from sexist role patterns, domination, and oppression." Aaaaaand, 10% goes to Planned Parenthood.
A raunchy, feminist, parody holiday album that will get you through the season. Every purchase of the album sends money to The Young Women's Leadership Network, SafeHorizon, and Planned Parenthood.
This gift isn't one you should sleep on (figuratively , of course!) All of the proceeds for this cozy consent reminder goes to The National Network to End Domestic Violence.
THINX is the perfect gift for your friend/wife/sister/brother/aunt/mailwoman. Don't wanna give away the surprise as you decide on a perfect pair? Feel kinda awkward inquiring about someone's size/flow/yadda yadda yadda? No worries—we feel you—and we sell giftcards! Happy shopping!
P.S. You can also buy Icon, our sister brand, for women with light bladder leaks.
P.S.S. If you live in NYC, our ~third~ annual (kind of a big deal for a startup) THINX Holiday Market is on December 15 and we'll have allllll the THINX for you to touch and stretch and feel and buy and wear home and bleed in. ;)
