Attention Rebels and fans: We’ve rounded up the best places to shop (or donate to) for your fearlessly feminist pro-abortion rights friends.
Strange Cargo Tees, Andersonville
Starting us out strong is the cool and quirky Strange Cargo Tees. While you can get tees, don’t forget about all their other trinkets and feminist merchandise. Their “Keep Abortion Safe and Legal” shirt is at the top of our list this holiday season—all the proceeds go to the Lilith abortion fund in Texas.
Humboldt House, Humboldt Park
Plants, vibrators and candles– a feminist’s dream. Check out these items and more at Humboldt House. Our pick: the ceramic single boob ornament. In five different shades, you can find your perfect match.
Women and Children First, Andersonville
It wouldn’t be a feminist shopping list without our tried and true, Women and Children First. The iconic feminist bookstore has been providing us with our favorite reads for decades. Shop for the rebel in your life and get them “The 1619 Project,” “Hood Feminism,” or “Somebody’s Daughter.”
Early to Bed, Andersonville
Need to escape the stress of the holidays? Early to Bed has your fix. Make sure to check out Inya the Rose, it’s been on back order because of its immediate rise to fame. Early to Bed also put together their own gift guide including vulva chocolates in three different flavors – dark, peppermint and caramelized. One dollar per chocolate vulva is donated to the Afiya Center, a reproductive justice organization in North Texas founded and directed by Black women.
Foursided, Lakeview, Lincoln Park and Andersonville
The oddities of Foursided never fail to impress this rebel. Shop greeting cards, stickers, magnets and more. For the art lover of your life, check out the prints by Alijhaé, a 21-year-old artist from the Huntsville area.
Wolfbait and B Girls, Logan Square
Wolfbait and B-girls has multiple gift boxes for the rebel in your life who is hard to shop for. We have our eye on the Burn it Down gift box, which includes Solder and Sage sterling silver snake earrings, Solder and Sage matches, and a Patchwork Farms smudge stick. Ten percent of the profits of each box goes to organizations in Chicago, including Brave Space Alliance, Planned Parenthood, Chicago Women’s Health Center and more.
Semicolon, East Village
A Black woman-owned bookstore and gallery space, Semicolon merges literature and art for guests. Can’t choose what gift to get your rebel? The store suggests purchasing a gift card. If you need another tote bag to carry back all your books, check out Semicolon’s Power to the Reader tote.
All She Wrote, Lincoln Park
Customized stationery and gifts at All She Wrote provide paper products as well as other feminist goods. If your rebel is a literature fan, check out the Emily Dickonson Prose over Bros sticker and the feminism pencil set.
Sideshow Galley, Bucktown
For the feminist witches in your coven, Sideshow Gallery is a must. The Modern Witch Tarot set is perfect for any beginning witch looking to expand their power, but don’t forget a vagina altar candle on your way out.
