The Financial Feminist Holiday Gift Guide
Sleigh Bells are ringing, and here at Her First $100K™, we are READY to celebrate the holiday season. It’s been a crazy year for me and my team, finishing my book, recording podcast episodes, traveling overseas to work as a digital nomad, and running a multi-seven figure business to boot. I’m back stateside and getting ready to spend my holidays with family and friends and slightly panicked about getting all my Christmas gifts together.
Fortunately, I’ve worked with and bought from some amazing companies over the years, so I know exactly where to start my holiday shopping list. If you’re like me, you love those unique gifts that are a mix of meaningful and practical –– so I’m putting together the ultimate gift guide for feminists to help you find the perfect present that ticks those meaningful and practical boxes.
This gift guide isn’t for just anyone, though –– it’s for the financial feminist who’s hoping to jingle all the way to smashing the patriarchy. We’ve got it broken down into clothing, munchies, WFH essentials, female-owned businesses, and more…and all in time for Black Friday so you can snag them at the absolute best prices. Happy shopping!
P.S. If we missed anything we should include, let us know in the comments! We’re always on the hunt for feminist brands and women-owned businesses to support.
Okay okay, I had to include my own book on this list because I really do believe that it should be essential reading for literally everybody on your Christmas list! Wherever you are on your personal finance and feminism journey, this book will help educate, inspire, and equip you with accessible information, actionable takeaways, and expert insight that you will not find anywhere else.
The book hits shelves just after Christmas on December 27, but fear not — my team and I won’t let you you show up empty-handed on Christmas morning: we created a cute af printable gift certificate that you can give to any and all lucky Financial Feminist book recipients! Plus, with your pre-order you will receive a FREE Financial Self-Care Guide that can be printed out and stuck under the tree for your favorite financial feminists!
Clothing and Fashion
As much as I love a good outfit, I do not have the time or the patience to shop for myself –– instead, I use Armoire. Armoire is a clothing rental service that gives clients unlimited access to endless styles for a monthly fee. Armoire is a sustainable and affordable way to switch up your closet. Enter code “herfirst100k” at checkout or use the referral link below for 50% off your first month + a bonus item! (Gift cards are also available here.)
When you need a cozy AF fit for the house that also turns heads at the gym, Girlfriend Collective is for you. Girlfriend Collective is a sustainable, slow fashion, activewear, Seattle-based and women-founded company. Each pair of leggings is made from recycled water bottles, and the quality is out of this world—squat proof, comfortable, and of course, incredibly stylish.
Founded in 2014 by Luciana Contreras, Gemma Haus was created with the belief that quality, on-trend jewelry can also be affordable. I personally love their looks and think they make great gifts to others (and to yourself *wink*).
For the HFK super-fan in your life. Each piece is designed with the Financial Feminist in mind –– from our Smash the Patriarchy tees to our Coming for Necks and Checks totes, and my personal favorite, our Equal Pay and Chalamet line. *swoons*
