As we finally eat the last of those Thanksgiving leftovers, we can officially announce that it’s go-time for the Christmas season. Every year someone around the world is wondering what to get for the ones they love most. Maybe another bag, another sweater, or another perfume gift set, but what about for the feminist friend? You could purchase another mug that says “Feminist” or another photo of Beyoncé in her “Formation” outfit throwing the middle fingers, or you could be daring and try one of these easy, thoughtful, and creative ideas. Here are five DIY gifts for your feminist friend.
Got a political feminist friend? What better than to gift the collar of Former Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Ruth Badar Ginsburg.
