Last-Minute Gifts for Every Feminist on Your List

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a present had been purchased, not even a blouse…

The holidays are finally here—bringing with them traditions like home-baked cookies and cake, stockings hung with care and feminists running manically towards their local department stores in search of that one pair of magenta earmuffs that their sister said she liked—kind of liked, right, or did she hate them?

This year, save yourself the stress. Stay home and snag these last-minute gifts for your empowered friends and family members—with the click of a button. You’ll give the gift of happy holidays to all—and yourself a good night of rest.

#1: Feminist Book Club Membership

This Feminist Book Club is a monthly subscription box that provides tools, resources, and opportunities to connect and give back while challenging you to dismantle systems of oppression. In fact, 5 percent of sales are donated to a new feminist organization each month.


#2: Women for Women Sponsorship

“With this gift,” Women for Women writes, “your loved one will embark on a yearlong journey of success and empowerment with their sponsored sister.” With every $35 monthly donation, the non-profit will provide a monthly stipend for food, clothes, water and shelter, as well as trade and business skills training and information on fundamental human rights, to a woman in need.

#3: Causebox Subscription

Causebox curates ethically and sustainably made products, in addition to partnering with artisans. With a quarterly or annual subscription, your fellow feminists will receive a limited edition curation of beautiful and useful products from socially conscious brands from a subscription service “focused on raising awareness for causes and charitable concerns each season.” Causebox has helped send over 100 girls in India to school and planted more than 10,000 trees through their various partnerships.

#4: Magickal Folk Witch Box Subscription

For the magically-inclined person who is tired of Trump’s misuse of the term “witch hunt,” these gift boxes are the perfect fit. The herbal products come from sustainable, eco-conscious supply chains, while other ritual tools are procured by artists and companies that “align with protecting the planet and the peace, freedom and equality of the people among her.”

#5: National Museum of Women in the Arts Membership

Unlimited FREE admission to the museum, including special exhibitions, as well as access to exclusive museum events are just some of the perks of a membership. The National Museum of Women in the Arts will send the lucky feminist artist in your life a gift membership packet—including the most recent issue of Women in the Arts Magazine, along with a letter noting who the gift is from.

#6: Women’s National Basketball Association League Pass

The WNBA is putting on some of the best pro basketball in the U.S., according to The New York Times Magazine, so this pass gives a deep dive into the biggest plays throughout the season, with access to every game on-demand as well as statistical overlays.

#7: The Gift of Ms.

For the politically-active, persistent and dedicated feminist in your life, the gift of Ms. is the perfect holiday gift. Every gift membership fuels our reporting, rebelling and truth-telling, and it supports all the incredible people working behind the scenes to make this all possible.
