A Feminist Gift Guide

If there's two things I love, it's badass feminists and Christmas. My dream world would contain more cinnamon and less patriarchy. So, there's little I enjoy more at this time of year than putting together my feminist gift-guide. Now that we're in our second year, I guess we can officially call it a tradition. And not the shit kind that means you have to spend an evening with your racist/homophobic/sexist great uncle, but the incredible kind that's full of pretty undies, vibrator necklaces (!) and intersectionality.

I like to think of this year's gift guide as the older sister of last year's post, simply because I know a hell of a lot more about ethical consuming in 2017. It was one of my new year's resolutions, after all. Everything you see bellow was picked by me not just because it is super sassy, but because of the ethics behind the brand. The Girl Vs. Cancer Tit-Tee donates 25% of its profits to amazing breast cancer charities. The beautiful minimalist jewellery by Made are all handmade in Kenya and have a completely transparent production process. None of these businesses fund fast fashion and a lot of them are independently run. Yay for knowing that you are helping to put food on someone's table instead of just giving more money to an already huge company, ammirite?

Basically, I think that all of these brands deserve our support this Christmas. And I certainly don't think your feminists friends will be complaining!
