In the past, I was told time and time again that I have an attitude problem (oops!). Nowadays, I just chalk it up to people not understanding my blunt and sarcastic nature, but honestly, I don’t care that much anymore. So in the spirit of being my true authentic self, I went searching for items with attitude for people who don’t take crap from anyone. Whether this applies to your sister, your best friend, your mom, or even a coworker, these are gifts for the women in your life who refuse to bend under pressure.
I personally love a good shirt that conveys some sort of clear message because they can be really funny, great conversation starters, especially when you encounter somebody else who shares your badass views. I also believe that if you’re great at what you do, you should be proud of it — and that definitely means showing off your #GIRLBOSS attitude. A #GIRLBOSS, for those who may not know, is someone who sees what they want in life, works their ass off to get it, and ignores anyone who want throw shade their way. Think: Amber Rose, Beyoncé, and Tina Fey.
So, the next time you’re trying to give off that “I don’t care” vibe (because hey, you don't!), why not use an awesome set of snarky pencils, a "SLAY" hat, or a yoga mat that shows off your new mantra to do it? There are so many items with attitude out there that can prove to everyone that you don’t take crap from anyone in a sarcastic, playful way. People will definitely start to see your inner boss lady.
