There are very few things that I enjoy more than the holiday seasons. The lights, the decorations, the family time, it is the season to be jolly, after all, and I’m not just talking about the big guy in red with too many reindeer at his beck and call. It truly is a magical time of the year, and every time it comes around, I get caught up in the holiday spirit.

But with the holiday season upon us, we often leave getting gifts for our loved ones until the very last minute. I know I do. And if you’re struggling to find the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for your favorite feminist, look no further. We’ve got you covered. And, the best part?

They’re affordable AND adorable!

  1. My Life on The Road by Gloria Steinem can be found anywhere books are sold. Be prepared to be inspired.

  2. “I Donut Give A “Sh*T” mug found here should probably become my new go to mug for AM coffee.

  3. “I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are different than my own” Audre Lorde print found here. It reminds us of the work already done while prepping us for the long, intersectional road ahead.

  4. “Don’t Tell Us To Smile” print found on Etsy, based on the hilarious comedy Broad City. It describes exactly how I feel when a creep on the sidewalk tells me I look better smiling.

  5. This adorable makeup bag. Because what’s better than Coco Chanel advice?

  6. The almost infamous crewneck that tells us that “The Future is Female” Because after all, there won’t be one without women.

  7. Shonda Rhimes created some of our favorite television series like Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, and Scandal. Here’s her Year of Yes book.

  8. The Notorious RBG book about the Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, is sure to be brilliant and the perfect inspiration for that law type feminist in your life.

  9. Best friends, coffee cups, and girl crush friendships can all be found on this perfect little mug.

  10. I would wear this shirt that says “Girls Bite Back” like there’s no tomorrow.

  11. Who wouldn’t be by inspired by a girl shot in the cranium who’s fighting terrorism with education? Malala is a badass, plain and simple. I want to be her when I grow up.
