All too often, products that say they’re feminist are actually just mass produced goods that don’t represent the principles and values that feminists hold dear.
We’ve done the research to find feminist gifts that give back to women and children around the world, so you can feel good about the gifts you give. Some of the brands we’ve included donate a portion of the proceeds for every item purchased from their stores, while others have special collections of products that give back.
No matter which gifts you choose from our guide, the feminist in your life will probably love the story behind them just as much as the gifts themselves.

Gifts that are handmade by women artisans
Globe In sells Fair Trade, handmade products that are produced in ethical working conditions by workers who are compensated fairly for their labor. Many of the workers are women who would otherwise have no employment or means of supporting themselves or their families. Each product description says where it was made and who made it. You can also read about the positive impact Globe In’s special gift boxes have had on local communities.
Feminist clothing that fights back with every purchase
Wildfang was founded by a woman and continues to be run by women. The brand’s offerings include cool basics, suiting, gender neutral apparel, as well as feminist clothing and accessories. We really love the Wild Feminist line, which includes T-shirts, beanies, button-up shirts, sweatshirts, and accessories. Wildfang makes a donation to select charities with every single purchase.
“We walk the walk, giving back $400,000 and counting this year,” Wildfang’s website says, “In 2017, we helped raise over $75,000 for charities including Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Joyful Heart, and the Tegan and Sara Foundation … Additionally, a percentage of all full price goods across our entire site go directly to a rotating monthly charity.” You can see all the charities Wildfang has supported here.
Lipstick from Sephora that donates $10 per purchase
The Sephora Stands Fearless lipstick is more than a great lipstick — it’s also a gift that gives back. The makeup company donates $10 of every lipstick purchase to its programs to empower women.
“Our programs address the needs of entrepreneurs, communities in transition, Sephora employees, and our planet,” the Sephora Stands webpage says, “And together, our company and employees share a commitment to increase our positive social and environmental impact.”
