Gift Ideas for the Feminist in Your Life
2018 Update: We are still not over Hillary’s loss and we stand by these gift ideas, so we’ve updated selections and links below where it was needed.
Shopping for your fave feminist friend? Trying to think of what to tell your less-than-hip fam what to buy you? Luckily for you, I channeled my sadness at Hillary’s loss (I’m still not over it, but who is?) into rounding up a list of the most fabulously feminist gifts money can buy.

For the gal who loves one-of-a-kind indie gifts you’d never find on your own (or who just loves subscription boxes), the Feminist Box is perfect. A subscription to Bitch Magazine is perfect for the feminist who likes to stay up-to-date on feminist news.

I never understood the point of tote bags until I just started carrying one around—and they are so damn handy! They are small when you’re not using them, but are big enough to carry planners, books, your lunch, and anything else you need.
Because we haven’t innovated a solution to deliver coffee in an IV, we’ve got to drink it out of a cup. On the bright side, at least there are some seriously great coffee cups out there.
