This year, why not kill two (love)birds with one stone finding Valentine's Day gifts to resist Donald Trump's presidency? Because yes, love is in the air, but so is some fierce, all-American resistance — and nothing pairs quite as well as those two feelings. The good news, this Valentine's Day, you certainly don't have to prioritize one over the other. It's all too easy to make a gesture this February 14 that will really stick it where it will hurt Trump's agenda most, by supporting the very causes that are helping people affected by his policies and fighting back against them every day.
No need to limit these gifts just to your main bae, because Valentine's Day is a day of love for all. Snag one of these gifts for your bestie, for your coworkers, for your chill sib or your mom or the teacher you're still in touch with from high school. Not only will they be touched that you thought of them on this day of ~love~, but they'll be pumped when they discover that the proceeds from their gift went to the organizations that need it the most in 2017. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
