We all know that I love a good feminist gift and so it seemed fitting that I would look to my favourite companies for help to put together an entire gift guide based around feminism and bringing down the patriarchy. Obviously most of these companies also have non-feminist options but I just don't really see why you would want those instead, but to each their own. Some of these companies are smaller etsy companies and it's nice to be able to showcase some lesser known talent, so please do go and search them out because they're well worth a peek!
I used to really rate Punky Pins jewellery when I was in school and so seeing them around again doing feminist pins was a nice throwback to being fifteen. I love so many of their pins, but when they sent me out these two they just seemed to perfectly encompass everything about this gift guide and so I was more than happy to take them and pop them in here. My personal favourite is cuterus, but the pro cats pin is definitely one I think a lot of you will like even though cats aren't really for me personally.

Not only is The Oyster Knife my favourite Etsy shop of all time, but Sophie who owns the shop is a genuine sweetheart. I really like these knickers, and Katy and I have been obsessed with them ever since we saw them - but add the fact that they wash well, they're vaguely passive aggressive and they're really comfortable and you have my favourite feminist clothing item to date. All in all, these are probably one of my favourite things in the entire gift guide - good going, Sophie.
I love a good sticker and these are absolutely gorgeous (also scratchproof, waterproof and dishwasher safe which is bizarre but also pretty amazing in my opinion). I've used these to decorate my university book, but you can stick them on pretty much anything and they're really pretty as well as conveying such an important message. You can get a ton of different stickers on Little Woman Goods and their business cards have cartoon naked ladies on that are so cute I can't even cope.
You all know that I love Feminist Apparel and I've talked about them before on my blog, but when they sent me this Feminist Killjoy jumper (complete with rainbows) it was just so suited to me that I couldn't not include it. This is a bit of an inside joke given that this is what many men call me on twitter whenever I mention, well... just about anything really - but the jumper is cool af, soft inside and generally so, so pretty.
So there's my picks for my fuck the patriarchy gift guide, but if you have any others please do let me know in the comments!
