Our female friends do a lot for us. We don’t know any woman who hasn’t been through something (or several somethings) that would have been unendurable if it weren’t for the support of their girlfriends. And while no gift can ever truly represent what they mean to us, that doesn’t mean we can’t get them something thoughtful as a token of appreciation. Here are some of our favorite gal pal gift ideas.
Shattered Glass Ceiling Necklace
This year has been amazing for women running for public office. There are way too many to name but a lot of them truly did shatter that glass ceiling. The thing about it is that we still have to work to keep that ceiling from putting itself back together and repressing women all over again. Never give up ladies, and never forget those that worked so hard to chip away at that invisible barrier so we can all shine through it.
The Woman Cards
Remember when Donald accused Ms Rodham Clinton of playing “The Woman Card” while on the campaign trail, and we raged? Well, now we channeled that hate fire into a Kickstarter campaign that celebrates all the women who deserve their own woman card, and those of us who deserve to play them. After all, throwing down “The Woman Card” is a power move when you’re throwing a hot ass Shirley Chisholm or Patsy Mink on the table. Women who’ve accomplished all the things that have made all the difference in all women’s lives. It’s the perfect gift for the women on your list. And if you’re buying for a slightly younger woman, there is the Girl Power deck as well, featuring Malala and Joan of Arc and Anne Frank. I’ve got two.
Although we, as women, have won some battles…the war is still going on all around us. By buying your gal pals one of these shirts you are supporting groups like: EROC, RAINN, #MeToo, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and Be A Hero.
I’m obsessed with these soaps. I saw them at a local gift shop and lamented that fact that I didn’t have anyone specific to buy them for. Somehow I found the website and have about 5 sitting in my cart just waiting for me to think of the right recipients. If all else fails, I’ll buy them for myself despite the fact that I don’t use bar soap. That’s how committed I am.
The scents are actually really nice, despite their descriptions, and no matter what type of pal your gal pal is, you can find the soap for her.
Each bar is $8.95 at Whiskey River Soap Co. Or buy 3 get 1 free with code freesoap.
Gifts for a Kindred Spirit
My best friend and I have a longstanding plot to take a girls trip to Prince Edward Island. Someday. In the meantime, I want a gift that thanks her for being a kindred spirit. I’m still debating: super cute peg dolls, or a slightly sassy mug?
