24 Feminist Gifts That You Can Actually Use In Your Everyday Life
As we get older, picking out gifts for friends, family members, or co-workers gets harder and harder. But if you're friends with someone who proudly identifies as a feminist (and if you aren't, why?), then I've got you covered. "Gifts for feminists" might not sound like the most exciting term when you first hear it, but trust me — any strong feminist out there would more than appreciate the below options. They say, "I'm a total #Boss and, yes, I still know how to have a good time." These unique gift options are fun, aesthetically pleasing, practical, and make a strong statement. What else could you ask for? They're so great that you might consider buying them for yourself instead of others... which, to be honest, I support (or at least add them to your wish list!).
When picking out a gift for the badass in your life who gets sh*t done and knows how to stand up for herself and others, you want to find something that communicates that. And these gifts do! They'll inspire them, every day, to keep being the awesome feminist that they are, and to ignore anyone who says they can't do what they want to do. Right now, with the state of this country, we need that kind of thinking more than ever. So, use this holiday season as an excuse to celebrate every feminist in your life with these cool gifts. Some might be unexpected, but all are basically perfection.
1. He Offered Her The World Wine Glass
THIS. Because, honestly, we don't need dudes to give us the world. We can get it ourselves. This might be the best wine glass I've ever seen.
2. World Domination Notebook
This notebook is for every #GirlBoss who is ready to take over the world. Not only does it look great, but it's also helpful for anyone to carry around a small notebook — it will keep you more organized and put together.
3. Strong Female Lead Clutch
Whether she uses this clutch as a bag to hold smaller items for her handbag, or as an actual clutch, she can't go wrong. And neither can you, with this as a gift.
4. I Am Very Busy Charger
This not only makes a statement, but is a super helpful present. I don't know anyone, especially any hard workers, who couldn't use another portable power bank.
5. A Watch And Card Holder Set
I don't think I'm alone in associating a simple watch with someone who works hard and is constantly busy. This slim leather band comes with a matching card holder that says "The world is your oyster..." and honestly, I might like that better than the watch.
6. Walk Of No Shame Duffle Bag
Although it's unlikely that your feminist friend will have this on hand after a one-night stand, it's still a terrific duffle bag and can be used for lots of other reasons. Because really, why should anyone be ashamed of having a good time?
7. Too Hot For You Mug
For your feminist friend who also loves a great cup of coffee, this mug makes the best gift. Hey, there's nothing wrong with being confident and demanding what you deserve!
8. Who Run The Office? Desk Plaque
Have a friend who works full-time? Get her this amazing plaque. OK, she really doesn't even need to be in an office to enjoy this — it can just be a daily mantra to remember whenever one is feeling down.
Who Run The Office? Desk Plaque, $29.99, Modcloth
9. Gal With A Plan Planner
Part of being a grown ass woman is staying organized and on top of your schedule. A planner makes that a whole lot easier, especially when it looks like this.
10. Soulmate Mirror
For your friend who always likes a mirror on hand for touch-ups, this one is the best I've seen. It speaks the truth!
11. Ain't No Wifey Anorak Jacket
Is this not the best anorak you've ever seen? Whoever wears this is reminding everyone what you're really made of.

Coffee table books can sometimes be useless, but this one is great. It includes lots of motivational quotes and pieces of advice from rad women all over the world. It makes a great gift.

Sure, stuff like this is a little corny, but it's also kind of nice to look down at your wrist and see something motivational. This is also just really pretty, even without the kickass quote.
14. Smart-Ass Ringer Tee
Because who says you need to act like a lady all the time? This tee under a blazer would look super cute.

We use our phones constantly, so why not make a statement with our phone case? This "boss" case is simple, but gets the point across... and anyone you buy it for will be flattered.

Taking the problematic phrase "grow a pair" and cleverly subverting it? Check and check.
17. My Favorite Position Tote Bag
A casual tote bag is a must-have for any feminist, whether it's being used as a shopping bag or for work or school. And this one relives the awesome moment Lauren Conrad said this in an interview and made us all love her a little more.

Cute necklaces with words are the best, and this one lets everyone know that your friend isn't in the mood to take their sh*t.

It's full of helpful advice and important things to remember.
