Surprise! It’s almost time to get those gifts under the tree… or menorah (but I personally keep my Hanukkah gifts away from fire and hot wax). Did you forget?
Here’s a quick roundup of some of my favorite feminist gifts you can STILL score for loved ones before the holidays roll around. You’re welcome, procrastinator.
For the Newbie/Oldie
Otherwild is a go-to shop for all things lady power and non-binary. The Venus Tit T is on my personal wishlist, but you can’t go wrong with any of their variations of the classic “The Future is Female” print (pictured here).
The Witch Bitch
BitchCraft knows their pop culture references almost as well as their spellbook. Their KILLER Nasty Woman badge is sold out but if you bug them, they might restock
Check out shop.kiddbell, for real. From pussy pipes by Caitlin Rose Sweet and pin collabs with Robin Eisenberg, to shirts designed by “feminist bitch” Kidd Bell herself, you can find something perfect for that “all about it” feminist in your life, especially if they’re looking to freak a few people out along the way. Bell also keeps a log of the unsolicited dick pics she’s received, for your sick pleasure/disgust with the str8 male race. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, this girl is the badest badass and a personal hero of mine.
The 518 Feminist

Superior Merch Co. (Troy, NY): Be real cute and pay for you and your pal to do one of Superior’s amaaaazing classes. From coffee culture to classes featuring artists and makers from the area, you can’t go wrong. Or stop in and get caffeinated while you shop. I love them, can you tell?
