Myself and Laura over at Laura Reflected have come up with a bunch of gift ideas we think the awesome, sassy, badass, feminist types would love to receive.
And, tbh, I think we would quite like all of these things.
I may have bought the safari print PJ’s already (20). And I’ve definitely got my eye on the notebooks (14 & 19), and the Frankenstein quote sweater (3).

The cool girl is one of the guys. One of the lads. The antithesis of the girly girl. She drinks beer, and straight liquor, she can hold her own in the lad’s banter arena, reeling off a pithy retort to an approving chorus of “wheeeeyyyy!” anytime.
I love to read other people’s writing, but hearing someone speak is inspiring in a different way.
I don’t need to tell you that societal pressure can be a downer for everyone sometimes. But women, collectively, understand the shame, critique and derogation directed toward them on varying scales, on a daily basis.
And that shit is tiring.
So, sometimes, I want to forget about patriarchal bullshit and feel awesome about being female.
